Our Blog:

Created Wednesday 22nd February

Hello again!
We have been learning about The Great Fire of London. We have written diary entries, we have written recounts of the event that took place in 1666, we have listened to music that represents the fire at that time and discussed how we felt when we listen to it, we have made wooden style houses in art, we have shown empathy to those people at the time, we made timelines and we learnt and wrote about Samuel Pepys…phew!

Look at our lovely door display!

I liked learning about the wooden house. I like making them and putting the stripes around the windows."
- Leah
I liked when we painted the fire in art. I liked mixing the colours to make different shades of orange and red to make the greedy fire look angry."
- Isabella
I liked learning about The Great Fire of London because it was exciting. I would have liked to live at that time because I would have liked to see what it looked like myself and to have written my own diary like Samuel Pepys."
- Ezana

At the moment we are looking at a new focus text called The Day The Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt. This book is really funny. We recommend that you read it for yourself because we don’t want to give the story away.

In numeracy we have been learning our times tables, arrays, divisions and fractions. Some of us have found it challenging but we are determined to be maths champions! In science we have learnt lots about materials. Look out for our pictures.

Hindu Temple Visit

We hope that you have enjoyed our blog. Speak to you all soon.

Class 2B2

Created Monday 16th January

Hello everyone,
This term has been busier than ever. We have learnt lots of lovely things and we have even been on another trip. How amazing! Our favourite part of our learning was writing stories based on the book Nat Fantastic. We got to make our own superhero. What happy children we were! We learnt key skills like onomatopoeia, using inverted commas and writing expanded noun phrases. In numeracy we have been learning our times tables, how to add using a number line, how to add using a blank number line and measuring and reading capacity, measures and weight…phew!

2 weeks ago we went on a trip to the planetarium. It was amazing. We helped the little bear find the big bear. The big bear was nowhere to be found however we were all fantastic detectives and found him in the stars. What great detectives we were! After the workshop we learnt that the Earth spins on an axis which is part of the reason why we have seasons.

For the winter fair, we created our own business. This is part of our enterprise. Our business was a photo booth. We have already named our product and have made a logo. Our next step is to do some market research to make sure our business is successful. We still have a long way to go but we believe it will be brilliant.

We hope to update you on our learning soon!

Hi All!
Welcome everybody to our wonderful new class!

In our class, we have been learning about Hinduism, Harvest, Usain Bolt for biographies, our times tables, nouns, place value and time connectives. That’s a lot of learning!

We have lots of aspects of learning that are our favourites. Here are a few:

I enjoyed learning about Usain Bolt. He inspires me to run." -Bez
I enjoyed learning about Harvest because it made me think about how lucky I am. I have also been given the opportunity to help others." -Taina and Chante
I liked learning about time connectives because they have helped me improve my writing." -Mahfuz
I liked learning the 2, 5 and 10 times table." -Ilheme

Look out for our blog and pictures about our Hindu Temple visit.
