Spelling Tests

Every Monday afternoon children in class 2 have a spelling test. We have lots of children getting 5 out of 5 each week, we call them super spellers! The children practise their spellings then they are tested. Children enjoy getting a sticker if they get all their words correct. Please help your children practice their spellings and high frequency words at home.

Beegu

This week we have started a new book called Beegu. It’s about an alien lost on planet Earth. We tried to imagine what Beegu’s home planet was like and did some paintings of where she might have come from. It was very messy. The children did some wonderful paintings and really used their imagination.

Please Help!

Last week the children designed their very own moon buggies. We were hoping to start making them this week. Please bring in any old/spare boxes you have for us to use to make the buggies. Cereal boxes, egg boxes, yoghurt pots would be great. Thank you.

A letter from Bob!

This morning the children came into school very excited, asking if Bob had replied to our letter. He had! 🙂 He wrote to us saying thank you for all the questions, he enjoyed reading them. He sent us a book about himself as a way of answering our questions. The children and I really enjoyed finding out all about Bob. We found out that he works on the moon! What an exciting job!

Fantastic Literacy Work

This morning the children were shown a picture of a man with a cup of tea. His name is Bob. They had to think of questions they would like to ask him if they were to meet him, using clues from the picture. We had some excellent questions. We wrote all of our questions down and put them in an envelope along with a letter. I posted the letter this afternoon. We’re hoping for some answers to our questions. The children are very excited to find out if he replies.

Solar Systems

This afternoon children have been exploring our solar system. We have looked at pictures of things in the solar system, such as planets, stars, the sun, satellites, constellations and much more. The children drew the solar syatem and plotted a journey around it, to see the things they would like to visit.

 

Happy new year!

Welcome back Class 2.

 

Today we have had such a busy day. It has gone so fast. It was lovely to see the children dressed so smartly in their uniforms, lots with new shoes and hair cuts. We have been busy working this afternoon on our new topic, which is Space. In geography, children used maps and atlases to find countries that have travelled into space. They had to colour the countires in on their own world maps!  It was good fun, but hard work.
