Year 2 visit the Library - January 2017
On Friday we braved the Winter weather and took a walk to our local library. Our task was to select some non fiction books.
As part of our English work this term the children will be writing their own reports and will be using the 'Talk for Writing' teaching tool to re-tell their reports to others. We came back to school with a great selection of animal books including - bears, elephants, giraffes, dinosaurs and penguins. The children were congratulated on their impeccable behaviour throughout the morning at the library and are keen to get working on their reports.
New Year 2017
Welcome back to school after the Christmas break and 'Happy New Year' to all children and adults. This term is packed full of lots of exciting things.
As part of our English topic we are going to be writing our own reports. A trip to the library will allow us to find lots of non fiction books to support us with this work.
Following on from before Christmas we are going to continue using our multiplication skills during our maths lessons.
Our topic this term is 'Treasure Island' and using our geographical skills we plan to see how much really know about the area that we live in. This topic will allow for lots of fact finding, visiting places in our local area and using maps to locate buried treasures. In our Science lessons we will be finding out about 'sound', how is sound made and how sounds are heard. During our PE lessons we will have the opportunity to develop our dance skills as we learn a new routine linked to our treasure Island topic.
So lots to look forward to.... here's to another great year of learning in 2017 and remember it's cool to be in school!!!
Jack and the Beanstalk - Dream Room
Today we went over to the dream room for our English lesson. We used the large wall images to discuss what Traditional Tale we might be focusing on. We listened to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and immersed ourselves into the story by imagining we were in the beanstalk. We talked about character emotions and feelings. We were introduced to the concept of freeze frames and had to select a part from the story to show others.

Take a look at our pictures and see if you can recognise which part of the story it is.
