Class 2

Welcome to Class 2 - Mrs Roe and Miss Windsor

 

In our class we have Mrs Roe, Miss Windsor, and Mrs Procter who help us every day to learn new, fun and exciting things. Our topic this term is ‘Brilliant Barnsley’ and we are finding out about a superhero called Big Brave Bill. 

This weeks ‘Talk for writing’ is about a superhero. We had lots of ideas of what the picture could be but it was revealed that it was a superhero. We thought of actions to try and remember the description.

A special visitor arrived in school today and left behind some of his belongings. We found out that they belonged to a special superhero called Big Brave Bill from Barnsley. He left a copy of the Barnsley Chronicle, a cape, a mask, a mug and a packet of Yorkshire tea. He enjoyed Yorkshire Tea so much that we tried a good old cup of tea and a cup of tea cannot be had without a biscuit to dunk!!!
We have painted a picture of Big Brave Bill using watercolour paints.

We have continued with out comparison in maths today by using the words ‘taller’ and ‘shorter.’ We even started using ‘tallest’ and ‘shortest’ to compare our heights.

We have had a busy day in class 2 using all of our materials knowledge. We had a think about which material would be the best for making a boat. We thought back to when we started our ‘Explorers’ topic and we made paper boats. We discussed that this was not the best idea and we could think of an alternative material.

Our boat needed to be waterproof and be light enough to float across our ocean. 

 

Look at at our designs. We used wood, plastic, foil and dough. Which do you think made it across?

Comparison of lengths 

 

 Children in class 2 have been looking at sticks of different lengths and matching up labels. We have used the vocabulary ‘longer’ ‘shorter’ ‘longest’ and ‘shortest.’

Super Science!

 

Today we carried out an experiment to find out which material would be the best for a waterproof coat for Winnie the Pooh. We predicted whether tissue paper, kitchen roll, fabric, cardboard or plastic was best for the coat and tested them.

To start off our new Talk for Writing topic we looked at new picture and thought about what it could be. We had lots of differnet ideas but today it was revealed that it was a rocket! 

 

We put actions to the sentences so that we can remember them.

We have been outside to see what objects we can see and what they are made out of as part of our Materials topic. 

 

 

Classes 2 and 3 have been working hard to create delicious treats for the people we love. We hope you enjoy the finished results!

Safer Internet Day 2018

 

Children have been thinking about how to keep safe on the internet and what to do if they see something that upsets them. 

We have been working on giving each other a complement which is better than upsetting someone.

Exciting Explorers!

 

Classes 2, 3 and 4 are looking forward to the start of a new year with our Explorers topic. We will even be welcoming a surprise visitor to make a memorable start to the learning.

Christopher Columbus came into school today to tell us all about his expeditions and discoveries.
We got the chance to taste some of the delicious fruits that Christopher Columbus brought back from his voyages. We discussed the smell, look, feel and taste of pineapples, papaya, avocado and tomatoes.

Classes 2, 3 and 4 have impressed parents this morning with their performance of 'A Midwife Crisis.' Well done to all involved.
