Feedback for Friday 20th March

Thank you to everyone who has been busy working at home whilst they were at home last week. We have loved seeing your work. Have a look what the children have been up to in the photos below. As you will see, everyone has presented their work in their own way and they have completed the work in a style that suits them. We are super impressed with everyone! Some people have sent photos of their work, others have typed it up and some have scanned work in. 
Thank you for all of your efforts so far. We can't wait to see what you achieve on Monday. 

Learning at home

Mixing Colours

 

In Year 2, we have been learning about mixing colours. We have changed the shades of blue by adding either light or dark colours. 
We then used these skills to create the background for our Great Barrier Reef art work. 

Stories & Money 

 

We have been so busy in Year 2! In English we have been writing our own version of Leaf and we have then had a go at reading our stories to the class. We have worked really hard to create exciting story openers using lots of description. 

 

In Maths, we are learning about money and it's value. We have been using the coins to create different amounts and next week we will be having a go at giving change. 

If you are visiting the shops, it would be a lovely if the children could have a go at paying using coins and notes. 

ART WORK

 

This week we learnt sketching and layering techniques to produce a piece of art work linked to our story  'Leaf'.

Newsletters and Topic Sheets

Music 

 

In our music lessons we have been really lucky. We got to try lots of different instruments from the orchestra. 

Firefighters 

 

Wow! What a great experience we had! The Stopsley Community Fire Service team came to visit each Year 2 class. They taught us all about keeping safe and how to contact the emergency services. We even got to see their special protective clothing and their fire truck. It was great fun spraying the water from the house, even if we did get a little wet. 

 

Below are a few rhymes we learnt to help us keep safe. 

'Matches, lighters, never touch. They can hurt you very much'

'Get out. Stay out. Call the fire brigade out'

'Stop. Drop. Roll'

Parent Workshops

 

Thank you to the parents who came to our workshops. We found it really useful and we hope you did too! The children loved being experts and showing the parents our reading comprehension skills.

Marvellous Mini Sing 

 

Congratulations to the children who took part in the Marvellous Mini Sing. You were all fantastic!

Pumpkin Soup 

 

In Year 2, we have been reading 'Pumpkin Soup' by Helen Cooper.

There was an argument in the old, white cabin and Duck left, taking his pumpkins with him. We found them in our outside area! We had a go at writing questions about the scene and then created our own news reports to tell the public what has gone on.

Updates and photographs :)

Invention Day 

 

To complete our Izzy Gizmo and History of Flight topics, we have had an invention day. We have looked at inventions from the past and talked about which invention we think is the most important. 

We then had a go at designing our own inventions. We had machines from leaf collectors to curry making machines. Year 2 then had a go at presenting their ideas to the class in a 'Dragons Den' style. 

Izzy Gizmo Wings 

 

To follow on from making our jam sandwiches and writing the instructions, this week we have had a go at making some wings for Fixer the bird our story, Izzy Gizmo. 

We began by using cereal boxes, straws, tape and decorations to make the wings whilst creating word banks to support with our writing. 

If you fancy making some wings, be sure to check out our English books at parents evening to see our amazing instruction writing. 

Instruction Writing 

 

In Year 2, we have been learning to write instructions. This week we have made jam sandwiches whilst giving verbal instructions. We then put our skills to use as we wrote our instructions. We had to include lots of different features, including bossy verbs, time connectives and adverbs.
