Class 2 are working hard!

We had a very successful library/maths games session last Friday and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible again this week. We are hoping to make the most of the extended good weather by going on a mini-beast hunt tomorrow to link to our science work on habitats. The children have impressed me with their knowledge of continents and oceans which we are focusing on in geography before starting our weather work. The long-awaited papier mache project should also be starting on Friday too!

I have set the class a challenge this week which is to find any examples in their reading books of the spelling pattern we are learning. The pattern is ‘c’ used for the ‘s’ sound before i, e or y. Already I have given out lots of stickers for pupils who have found the following words; nice, places, decided and city in their reading books.

Class 2 have also written a series of ‘dear teacher’ letters with lots of imaginative ideas for why they might not be at school for a couple of weeks! These include zip-wiring around the world, visiting penguins in Antarctica, flying on a rocket to the moon and visiting the Queen at Buckingham Palace. You will be able to read all of the children’s letters as we are putting them into a class book to go on show at library time and on the upcoming parents’ evenings.

Spelling

This week our spelling pattern is words ending in the ‘j’ sound spelt ‘ge’ or ‘dge’. Your challenge is to write an interesting sentence with correct punctuation that uses one of our spelling words. See me for the card to write it on and then we can display it on our spelling wall.

Welcome to class 2

Welcome to class 2 all pupils, parents, carers, grandparents, childminders and anyone else who would like to read and comment on our blog.
I will use the blog to post links to relevant websites to support learning, post photographs of our activities and generally keep everyone updated with what we are up to in class 2. Please leave a comment when you can – it lets us know that the blog is being used and suggestions for improvements are always very welcome.

The Great Fire of London

A big well done to all of you for your amazing houses and all the interesting facts you found out about them. Many of you discovered that the houses were smaller at the bottom so that people didn’t have to pay as much for the price of land.

Your work in class has been fantastic, particularly your recounts about the fire and your diary entries from the time. I can’t wait to get them all up on display.

Let’s get ready to cook!

After checking we were ready to cook we got busy making our sandwiches. We practised snipping, mixing, cutting out and spreading.

Not everyone liked the ingredients used, however those children that were willing to taste all agreed they had made a delicious sandwich!!

Mrs Irvin and I certainly enjoyed ours.

The children cleared and tidied their areas once we had finished, but a big thank you goes to Lily for helping with the drying up.
