Weekly news 8.3.19
This week in school, we have finished our ‘Power of Reading book project by writing our own chapters in our best handwriting. The storybooks look amazing; please have a look in your child’s classroom.
We have been practising SATS papers this week and the children have responded really well to their ‘Special Work’ and ‘Secret spaces’. They have all worked hard and have enjoyed the quiet, focussed atmosphere in the classroom.
We have finished off our ‘Towers, Tunnels and Turrets ’topic with an ‘Innovate Day’. The children read the story of the three little pigs as inspiration. Then they were challenged to design and build a safe fortress for the three little pigs based on their knowledge of castles. Once complete they labelled their design and made a list of the resources they would need. They then went on to collaboratively build their design using the available resources. The children worked in groups all day long and have designed some amazing fortresses.
We had lots of fun on world book day exploring the children’s characters and books. We all moved into our circle time groups to hear different stories in the afternoon.
Please let us know if you are able to help on Monday for our walk around the village; we will be setting off from school around 9.30am and back in time for lunch.
Have a great weekend – Year 2 team
