Brrrrr its starting to get cold, so cold it could snow.
Our class have been thinking about the story of 'The Snowman'. We have looked closely at the story by sequencing and acting out parts of the story in groups, as well as writing an alternative beginning and ending. As the story has no words at all, we decided that we were going to be authors and write the story ourselves. We made a plan of the story and included the types of vocabulary we were going to use and changed the ending of our story. Our stories have came to life and are now finished!
The children have worked very hard and have produced some wonderful stories! Well done Year 2!
Welcome to year 2!
Our class is called Pompeii. In our class we have Mrs Hughes as our class teacher, Miss Morgan and Mrs Hathaway our wonderful Ta's.
Our class topic this term is 'Around the world in 80 day's'. We will be exploring the 7 continents of the world and will be taking a dive into different countries to explore and experience some of the culture within them. So far we have looked at the United Kingdom and the four countries that make it up, as well as, taking a dip into Brazil. We have located Brazil on a map of the world, drawn fruit that comes from Brazil and used musical instruments to recreate a carnival within class. We will be creating posters about the different countries we visit for English and will use these in our travel agents role play area.
In P.E. this term we are learning about 'New Age Curling' and 'Try Golf'. So far we have mastered the skills of aiming, using the correct body posture and how to work as part of a team!
Our P.E. days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please make sure your child's P.E. kit is in school all week and everything is named. If you wish to take your child's P.E. kit home to wash on a Friday, please make sure it is back in school on the Monday. Thank you.
Our class also has a pet dog called Benjie. Benjie lives in our class and likes to explore different places and learn new things. Every Friday Benjie will go home with a different child from the class each week. He has a diary he takes with him so you can help him record all the wonderful things you did with him. We will share his diary with the class on Mondays.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
