Book Award Challenge!

User Rating:  / 2

As you know at Whitehouse Common we are participating in ‘The Book Award’ challenge. We are doing this to encourage all children to read a range of books from different genres and authors for pleasure.

The list of different ‘challenges’ can be found under ‘curriculum’- ‘book awards’ - ‘year 2’ on the school website.

Once the children have completed all thirty challenges, they will be placed into a prize draw at the end of the year, where they will be in with a chance of winning a… Kindle Fire!

Kindle Fire

Mr. Vickers recommends reading ‘The Twits’, Mrs. Hollis recommends ‘A Very First Poetry Book’ and Mrs. Parkes recommends ‘The Hodge Heg’.

If you want to complete some challenges at home, please clearly write ‘Book Award’ as well as the title of the book and the challenge it achieves in your child’s planner.

Happy reading!

World Book Day

User Rating:  / 2

We've taken World Book Day a little further in year 2... We've been celebrating it all week! In English we have been reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We have used this to think of, and write different types of sentence, including; statements, commands, questions and exclamations! It has been great fun, we really enjoyed dressing up and reading with the year 6 children too.

Thanks for visiting and see you next time!

Art in a Day Fun!

User Rating:  / 2

I'm sure you have heard by now, all about the fun we had during Art in a Day! We looked at the artist Andy Goldsworthy and his work. We started by exploring some of his artwork and then made some of our own natural sculptures, you might have seen these on the side of the path!

As if that wasn't enough, we then used clay to make penguins, this linked to our topic 'Poles Apart'! We can't wait for our next Art in a Day... Thanks to all those parents who sent in natural materials for our sculptures!

Year 2's Inspire Workshop

User Rating:  / 2

A huge thank you to all of the people who came to Year 2's Inspire Workshop, I'm sure you will agree the children loved working having you in the classroom, and we have seen that they have all gained a lot from it. You should have also received a pack containing a step by step guide for each of the calculation methods, it would be great if you could use and refer to this when helping your child from home.

Have a great weekend, 

The Year 2 Team

Folk Tales!

User Rating:  / 1

Over the last two weeks we have been learning about folk tales. We began by reading the traditional version of Beauty and the Beast, identifying the features, and then started to develop our own characters and setting. Today we will be creating a story map using Talk for Writing, which will help us when it comes to writing our new folk tales on Thursday and Friday!

We very much look forward to speaking with you all at the Inspire Workshop next Tuesday!

See you soon,

The Year 2 Team

First week back!

User Rating:  / 1

We have had a great first week back after half term! We have been learning about London in Engllish, as well as completinga range of  tasks, such as writing different types of sentences. In maths we have been focussing on place value and 'greater than' and 'less than', we've been working really hard!

Of course, coming up next week is our class assembly, we have been practising our lines, dances and songs. We are very excited to show you what we have done! Costumes for the class assembly were due in today, if you have not brought them in, please ensure they are brought in by Monday. It would be great this weekend if you could continue helping your child learn their lines and dance.

We look forward to seeing you next week!
