Week 2

Posted by Heather Smith in Pandas

On Tuesday, we wrote letters in role as Michael from the book, Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We enjoyed including details of what Michael had seen on The Peggy Sue so far. To conclude this week, Mrs Bailey lead an assembly for Remembrance Day. All of KS2 painted a red or black cup that was used to create a giant poppy which is now displayed by the front entrance. Finally, we adored improving our Greek Myth dance.

Handa’s Surprise

Handa’s Surprise    3.11.17

The children have returned from their holiday with an excellent attitude to their learning. We have read the story of Handa’s Surprise and learnt how to summarise the main events. We got to taste some of the fruits from the story and talked about which ones we liked best and what other things we eat to stay healthy.  In mathematics, we have been practising counting accurately and matching the correct numeral to quantities. We have also been ordering pumpkins by size and thinking about how we could measure them.

This week has seen the start of Charlie’s Challenge. Charlie Bear sets the children tasks in the classroom to complete independently. The children have all been motivated to complete this week’s challenges which included making their own shakers and painting self- portraits.

We have also started to learn our sounds and impressed our teachers with how well we have recalled each one that we have learned so far.
