This week in Literacy, we have innovated part of our text by changing the VILLAIN! We discussed what a villain is and the role that they play within a story. We then started to invent our own stories to write ourselves!
We have had an exciting week this week in Maths, we have learned about addition. We have used jottings to help us with our calculations, we have practiced these and learned how to count them to find the answer.
Can you solve this?
14 + 17 = ___
This week and next week we will be exploring different materials that we can use to construct a dinosaur. This week, we started by exploring a range of materials independently and discovered different ways in which we could make them move.
We then use folding techniques to create a 3D dinosaur that we will continue to embellish next week.
PE was amazing this week! We explored different ways in which we could TRAVEL across apparatus today. We had great fun moving like a dinosaur around this apparatus!

Daisy is always engaged in lessons, and because of this, contributes massively to class discussions. She is a great thinker and is keen to share her ideas with others. She is also a fabulous role model to others, at ALL times. Well done Daisy!
In Literacy this week, we have continued to learn our story with actions and pictures. We have also been learning about a range of different sentence devices such as verbs, adverbs, adjectives and more! We have been trying our hardest to include these in our writing.
We also looked at a picture of a pirate ship and re-created it using our bodies. Chichester were so fantastic at this and used lovely adjectives to describe what they were.
See if your child can remember which object they were within the picture!
In Maths this week, we have started to look at measuring using grams and counting in different steps.
It is so important for your child to know their times tables for aspect of Maths learning such as this. Please could you ensure that you are practising their 2, 5, and 10 times tables at home as this will benefit them greatly!
How many grams is this showing?

Thank you so much to all of the parents that dressed their children in such magnificent costumes today, they looked fabulous!
We have an amazing day in Chichester class. We started off by exploring the book ‘The Twits’ and looked at the description of Mr Twits beard. We the explored all of the different things in his beard by smelling, touching and even EATING them! We used adjectives to describe them. It was gross!
We also created our own Mr Twit beards and spent the afternoon exploring other Roald Dahl creations.
Miss Kirkpatrick and I are very excited to welcome Chichester class into Year 2. We have already had a fun filled first week back with loads of learning taking place!

Kyle has been amazing this week. He has shown all of the school values and has been an amazing role model to all of his peers. He has also been showing amazing endeavour in his lessons, well done Kyle!
We kick started our Literacy for the term with a fabulous Hook Day! Our Literacy learning for the term is going to be all about DINOSAURS as this is our topic for the term, therefore, we spent one lesson exploring a whole range of different dinosaur activities to help us with our writing. We have also worked on adjectives and used these in our writing!
This week in Maths we have started by learning all about PLACE VALUE! We have used deines to help us identify how many tens and how many ones there are within a two digit number and we have started to represent these with jottings independently. The whole class have done so well at this!
