Another busy week in class R! We have been reading Jack and the Beanstalk and have planted beans, looked at what might happen if we add dye to water and put celery in, done lots of adding with golden beans and made some giant glasses, thinking how we could measure them so that they fitted – to name but a few activities!  In PE, we have been learning to jump and land safely. Our daily letters and sounds and maths continue.

If anyone has some ‘recycled materials’ that we can make models with (eg boxes, egg cartons, tubes), we would be very grateful to receive them.

Thank you to those children that have been doing their maths challenges. Don’t forget that PE kit should be in all week!  Thank you.

How you can help your child this week:  We will be making porridge this week for the Goldilocks. Talk about how things change when they are heated up.

Congratulations to our Learner of the Week, who is always ready to learn and perseveres without giving up. Well done!

Week beginning: 25.05.18

Well done to our pupils of the week who were chosen for their wonderful art work and their resilience with their learning.

What a wonderful half term we have had! Just to remind you, here are some of the things class two have been up to:

  • Read charlie and the chocolate factory.
  • Created our own versions of the story.
  • Compared different types of chocolate.
  • Designed a chocolate world from birds eye view and created a key.
  • Looked at chocolate display boxes and mechanisms. Created our own display boxes with levers.
  • Looked at art by Wassily Kandinsky and compared to art by Andy Goldsworthy.
  •  Used inspiration from the above artists to create our own chocolate wrappers.
  • Learnt about fractions and measures – Very helpful when building our chocolate boxes.
  • Learnt about Judaism.

It is sad that our CHOCOLATE topic has come to an end but…..LETS GET EXCITED! Our new topic is DINOSAURS!

Thank you to parents who came in after school to look at the children’s learning, If you missed out, you are more than welcome to speak to me to arrange a time to come in and see what your child has been doing. Or look below at some of the photos  highlighting the fun the children have had!

Have a wonderful half term!
