This week we’re going to be using the story Giraffes Can’t Dance as our focus text. Thinking about how we’re all different and special on our own way and knowing that we can do anything if we set our minds to it.
Monday – Click on the link below to see an animation of the story. Think about how Gerald was feeling. Can you describe his feelings and draw a picture to go with your writing?

Y1&2 self isolation activities
Learning Packs for Self Isolation 02/07/21
Class 2’s learning packs are available to collect from school from Monday morning. They include lots of skills practise sheets and activities for the children to do at home. We took on board feedback about printing from last time so all of the activities are printed ready for you. They also have a new reading book for each child. We are arranging daily fun sessions on Microsoft teams for those who can join us and all learning materials will also be accessible from this page if you are unable to come to school to collect. The packs can be collected any time on Monday or we can send them home with siblings if you prefer. There is no pressure on parents to complete the work as I know everyone is tired and so are the children, all we ask is that you do your best. There will be special awards to reward those who do well. As always we’re always available by the phone or email if you need us.
Year 2 got busy identifying different word classes and we learnt some new, super vocabulary along the way! Well done to them all! 🙂🌟
Our prize winners were …….
Today in Art we looked at the Powerpoint all about Wassily Kadinsky. He created lovely patterns using colour mixing. We used paints to have a go at making circle Art inspired by Kandinsky.
This week Class 2 have been learning all about the Great Fire of London in English.
Today they wrote some absolutely wonderful Acrostic poems so I wanted to share some with you.
Please have a read, they really are super and I’m so proud of them!
Well done everyone!
We have been decorating our ‘happy hats’ for Mental Health Week.
Arts and crafts offer many health benefits to young children including the development of motor and coordination skills, boosting self-esteem, serving as a stress outlet, and improving visual learning practices, as well as memory and language skills.
Personalising crafting projects is also crucial as it offers children a channel to express themselves, to create something unique on their own, and to have fun creatively. This practice will help children develop a sense of self-worth; it will make them feel good knowing that they are able to do things that can be credited to them. As teachers and parents, we can personalise arts and crafts projects by adding a tag or a label the child’s name attached or on it.
Please find attached a letter from Mrs Gregson regarding Remote Learning.
Today Santa paid us a ‘socially distanced’ visit in school 🙂 The children had a lovely time asking him lots of questions and receiving a small gift from him. Happy Christmas everyone.
Children In Need
Class 2 went for a Autumn Walk to have a look at nature.
In SMSC this week we talked about who is really important in our lives. The children were great at discussing the people who are special to them and really enjoyed drawing their pictures! 😊
In Spanish we revisited our numbers to 10.
We also practised asking and telling each other our names.
The children all really enjoyed learning Spanish again! 😊
In Class 2 we talked about our feelings and met the mood monsters! They are funny little creatures who change colour depending on how they are feeling.
We talked lots about different ways we can feel and what to do if we are feeling sad or worried.
The children then designed their own mood monster which they really enjoyed! 😊
