Shiver Me Timbers - we're setting sail this term on a rip-roaring Pirate Adventure!
We have secretly (Shh, don't tell the children!) sent two of our pirate crew, Pirate Jim-Lad and Swashbuckling Matilda, off on a sea-faring journey around the world. They are sending us postcards so we can track their journey, learning about the UK, the seven continents and five oceans as we go. Already we have received postcards from all over the world and a few letters from other pirates.
In class, we are enjoying reading stories about pirates and getting to know Jim lad and Matilda. We have created our own pirates and written stories about them. We have also listened to and written our own pirate poems.
As part of our topic and computing learning, we are going to research real pirates and produce a poster about them on the computer helping us know how to be safe when using the internet.
In English, we have watched the video, 'Something Fishy' and are learning about animals that live in the sea to write a non-chronological report about them.
In maths, we are learning how to multiply and divide and learning our 2,3,5 and 10 times table. With Mrs Brightman, we are also exploring position.
We are using our creative skills in art by using different mediums and media to create water. Next, we are going to make shells out of clay.
Welcome back Year 2
What a fabulous start to year we have had!
The children have settled into the new routines really quickly. The positive behaviour ticks are mounting up as the children are demonstrating excellent behaviour both in and outside the classroom.
We have also made a start to our topic on Victorians.
In English we are reading Ronald the Rhino, Smeg and Smog and Horrid Henry books.
In Maths we are counting in 2s,5s,3s,and 10s.
All the children are working really had in all lessons.
Well done everybody!
