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!

 

Literacy

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.

 

See if your child can tell you what an adjective is and give you an example of one!

3D picture!

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!

Maths

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?

Roald Dahl Day

13th September 2017

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.

Welcome back to school!

 

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!

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!
