Take Home Task

We had a great time looking at all our models.

Last Week of Term

Easter is fast approaching! The children are still enjoying their topic and we look forward to seeing the take home tasks you have worked so hard on. As the children have enjoyed this topic so much, we have decided to continue with it after Easter.

For our topic we have looked at the reasons the Titanic sunk and who was to blame. The children then learnt about what is a primary and what is a secondary source. We have created wash paintings, focusing on the sky and sea in the style of a painting of the Titanic.

The children have worked really hard in gymnastics where they have worked in pairs to create sequences on the wall bars and tables.

We have been writing stories about a ‘hole in the wall’ for a competition where the children can have their story published and signed books by Mick Inkpen. The children have some fantastic ideas and I look forward to reading them.

Have a safe and happy Easter.

Last Week of Term

This week the children have written a short story for a competition run by the Hampshire Cultural Trust all about The Hole in the Wall.  They are very excited about the opportunity.  It is being judged by Mick and Chloe Inkpen with a prize of an e-reader and signed books by the Inkpens.  In Maths we have been measuring length and mass of objects.

Thank you to all the parents who made it to the Year 2 assessment meeting this week, I hope it was useful.  I will put a summary of the meeting on the website before the start of the Summer term.

It was amazing to see all your fantastic Take Home tasks, they were really varied and had obviously taken a lot of work.  We are saving some of them to go on display in the library for the rest of the school to see.

As the children have enjoyed the topic so much we have made the decision to continue it for another two weeks after Easter to enable us to dig deeper into the events and answers the children’s questions.

Happy Easter!

Red Nose Day Dance!

Learning Outside

Learning outside

Ladybird and Dragonfly reception children have been enjoying the warmer weather!  We spend time learning outside all through the year, come rain or shine, but when it’s warmer we can enjoy it even more.  We have been counting and using numbers, drawing and writing, measuring, investigating and exploring in our outside classroom.
