Welcome back Class 2

Summer’s over already!

But, we have had a great first week back, working on persuasive writing with some wonderful ideas already coming through. We have attempted to make slime, done some role play, had an arts and crafts afternoon, celebrated our first week back with golden time and within maths we have begun to learn about place value and numbers to 10,000

This term we are looking at heroes and heroines, we will be exploring all different superheroes, real life/ local heroes as well as looking at the Ancient Egyptians. We have some exciting things planned and some new ideas going on inside the classroom.

I have introduced a new way of celebrating hard work within the classroom, using the selfie station! If children have worked hard within the lesson and are especially proud of their work they are able to take a selfie stick and attach it to their work, we will then take a picture and send it to their parent using the Dojo App. A few of you may have already seen some work popping up.

Welcome Back EYFS

England Ladies Football

Yesterday I was invited by the York Regional Talent Club to act a as a ball girl for the England Ladies Football Club. The game was at Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate, this is a very posh school. When I arrived I had a buffet dinner, which was nice. Before the game started we all sang the National Anthem. England played Ireland. I was positioned behind the goal so had a good view of England’s penalty goal. The final score was 1-1. I had a brilliant day and it was good to see Jess Parks representing England who is also from Hull.

Homework in Class 2

These are some of the photographs of the super homework completed this term.  Homework books need to be back in school by Wednesday this week, together with reading books and any Big Write books or Big Maths sheets.  A big thank you goes to all the children and their parents for helping them, some very successful results!

   

Science in Class 2 – Sound

Class 2 investigated the effect of distance on the loudness of sound.  They used the trundle wheels to measure the distances and recorded their observations on their investigation sheets.  They also did a few activities to show the vibrations that cause sounds and how sounds can travel through air.  They all enjoyed doing the different activities especially making a string telephone using two plastic cups.

Class 1 Maths

On the transition day last Friday Class 1 were sharing (division) different amounts of bricks into equal groups.  They were identifying how many different ways they could find and writing down the calculations.  I was very pleased with their efforts in the maths lesson and throughout the day.  I am looking forward to developing their learning next year.

‘Pirates of the Curry Bean’

Monday of this week we had two performances by Class 2 and 3 of ‘The Pirates of the Curry Bean’.  Both shows were an outstanding success.  There was plenty of praise given from the parents and relatives.  The acting was fabulous, the jokes funny and the singing was excellent.  The success of the play is owed to the staff, in particular Mrs Rodgers who selected the play, directed it and managed rehearsals, and most of all the children for magnificent performances.  Hope the next ones can be as good.

Capacity in Class 2

Today, children were experimenting with capacities and trying to see which container held the largest volume of water. They learnt how to read different scales in millilitres and calculated the difference in the capacity between the containers. A good investigation was had by all.

Pirates of the Curry Bean

I just wanted to say a massive well done to all the cast of ‘The pirates of the Curry Bean’ you were absolutely amazing!  You have have learnt so many lines and songs I am truly amazed by you all!  Just a quick thank to all the parents and grandparents for organising all the costumes they looked fabulous.

Homework in Class 2

The homework for the summer term is going well.  We have had some delicious buns, humorous poetry, creative pictures and detailed descriptions.  It is pleasing to see the efforts of all those children who have finished so far.  Well done!
