This Week's Learning

User Rating:  / 0

The hunt continues for the missing money - we have been busy sending emails to various member of staff around school to help us find the culprit.  We have also been learning about animals and their babies including what they are called. We have learned about what babies need to be cared for and looked after.  In literacy we have been reading about Beauty and the Beast and looking at the key features of fairy tales.  We really enjoyed the story and wrote book reviews for it.

In Year 2 we are being detectives trying to help Miss Maugham solve the mystery of the missing maths money!  We are learning about how emails can be used to communicate and have send and received emails from Miss Maugham explaining the problem.  We are hot on the case to find the suspicious man, who may or may not have stolen the plastic money, using the clues she has emailed to us.

Continuing with our London theme we have been reading the text 'We Completely Must go to London' during our Literacy lessons.  We have really enjoyed reading the text and using it for our writing as well as thinking about all of the things that can be seen in London.

We are about to begin our new topic on 'The Great Fire of London'.  We are really looking forward to finding out about what happened on that fateful date - how the fire began, who it affected and how the fire was finally extinguished.  It is a very famous event in our history.

Welcome Back Year 2

We want to say a huge well done to all of the children for a fantactic start to Year 2 yesterday.  We worked really hard writing pirate theme acrostic poems and designing flags.  Our team games in the afternoon really challenged us to work together and co-operate with each other in order to solve problems.  Our pirate theme is going to continue for the rest of the week linking to our book 'The Night Pirates' by Peter Harris.

What a fabulous performance today! We hope you enjoyed our celebration of dance assembly today for those of you who managed to come and see the show. We are really proud of everyone!

The Horta Family

User Rating:  / 1

This week we have been continuing our work on Mexico as part of our 'Going Loco!' topic. We found out about the Horta family who live in Tocuaro. The Horta's live in a house originally built by Gustavo's father, Jesus Horta (who is now 79 years old). Jesus and his wife Guadalupe (aged 78) still live there, but the house has been extended to give space for the rest of the family. The family work together to make mexican masks so we had a go at designing our own! Please [click here] to learn more about the Horta family.

The Singing Mermaid

In Literacy this week we have been reading 'The Singing Mermaid'. We enjoyed listening to the story, finding the rhyming words and sorting parts of the story into 'trash' or 'treasure'. We identified the speech in the text and thought about how we could change the ending. [Click here] to listen to the story.
