What a busy, busy week!

Friday 13th September

We have had a busy week in Magpies class with lots to remember! We have been working hard on being ready to learn, following our classroom routines and making sure that we do our best work at our tables!

In Literacy this week we have been learning all about the clock-tower clip. The children have thought up some fantastic adjectives and they have been brilliant at making sure that they use capital letters and full stops. We have been trying our best to make sure we focus well in our lessons so that we get lots of writing finished!

In Maths, we have continued to learn all about place value. We have learnt all about the tens and ones and even completed some reasoning challenges! 

In RE we learnt about the story of the Lost Son. The children enjoyed making puppets and they were able to think about how the son might have been feeling.  

One of our favourite parts of the week was Reading Buddies! Each week the children will spend some time enjoying a story book together with an older child. It was a brilliant time to watch the children enjoying books together!

Our Star of the Week this week is Logan. Logan has been a fantastic role model for our first full week together. Logan is cheerful and friendly in the class and he has shown respect by listening carefully to the instructions

Please remember to read with your child (at least three times a week) and record it in your child's reading record.

Have a lovely weekend!


Welcome to Magpies!

It has been a brilliant first few days in Magpies Class and we have jumped straight back in with lots of learning! Our Topic this term is This is my land where we will be learning all about our local area, our country and the world. On Wednesday the children enjoyed an i-spy around Greens Norton. They were all very well behaved and managed to find lots of different buildings in the village. We also enjoyed designing our own village using collage for our new topic book covers. On Wednesday afternoon we worked in groups to be 'village planners'. In our teams we had to use the building materials to create our own villages. We used the Lego, blocks and drew pictures of what we wanted the different buildings to be like!

Thursday and Friday we have been busy with Literacy, a bit of Maths and Science. The children wrote some interesting descriptions about the Clock tower and they even remembered to use adjectives! We are all learning our new groups and how to learn best in Year 2.

A huge congratulations to the children below for completing the Summer Reading Challenge! We love reading in Year 2 and we are so proud of these children who managed to complete the Space Chase! In Year 2 we expect the children to read at least three times at home each week (and don't forget to sign those reading records!) 

Have a lovely weekend and rest!
