Class 2 have had a great first week back and have been working very hard. I've been so impressed with Class 2's independence, focus and effort levels this week. Well done Class 2! In Geography, we really enjoyed creating our own sketch maps of Stratton. We made sure we added in a key with symbols showing the school and church. In R.E., we have started looking at the Christian Easter story. The children already had some fantastic ideas about what Easter meant to them and came up with thoughts such as 'new life', 'Easter eggs' and 'hot cross buns'. We then went on to create Easter collages and created some beautiful artwork with images, colours and words.
Class 2 enjoyed playing on the apparatus for their last P.E. lesson with Miss Alston. We have also been busy writing and publishing our sea beast stories ready to read to our family and friends on Friday. Finally, Class 2 composed their own songs on the recorders using the notes A and G. We hope you enjoy the videos :)
On Monday, Class 2 enjoyed helping with the school's new mosaic artwork. We can't wait to see the end result at the front of the school soon. We also had our first ever music lesson on the recorders. We all listened well, making sure we had our hands in the correct position and our fingers covering the holes. We learnt the notes A and G then had a go at playing along to the song 'I've got music in my soul'.
Class 2 have had a lovely week working very hard in all of our new topics! The children are enjoying learning all about the Islamic religion in RE. Last week, we learnt all about who Allah is too Muslims and this week we had the chance to take a look at a real Qur'an. The children took responsibility by making sure their hands were washed and clean before looking through it. We also treated the book with respect, wrapping it up in a cloth and placing it on a high shelf when we were finished. In music, we also had great fun learning to play a 3-note song on the glockenspiels as a class. I was so impressed with how in time the children all were and they all tried their hardest. Well done Class 2!
Class 2 enjoyed practising their gymnastics skills with year 1 this week! We also completed a 'Remember it' paper in maths to see what we remembered from last term. Well done Class 2
Class 2 have had a great first week back after the Christmas break. We enjoyed choosing our new reading books after we did another Star Test on AR. We have also been learning all about division and can explain to you all what commutative means :) In P.E. this week, we pretended to be playdough to see what sort of shapes, rolls and movements we could do. We enjoyed shaping eachother into different poses as well!
