2F

Delightful Decorations

Year 2 have been using fine motor skills to sew their own Christmas bauble. 

Year 2 Christmas Stall

We had so much fun at our Christmas fair selling what we had made on our hook day a couple of weeks ago. We are now thinking about what we are going to do with our profit. 

Computing

During computing we learned about algorithms. We had lots of fun looking at different games where a specific algorithm allows the player to move onto the next level. It was so much fun! 

Keeping Healthy!

In Science this week we are learning how to keep healthy. We have discussed the importance of having a balanced diet and exercising regularly to keep fit. We had lots of fun exercising in the classroom and counting how many star jumps/hops/etc we could do in one minute. 

Emily Brown and Father Christmas

Emily Brown and Father Christmas  1
As a class we created our story map for ‘Emily Brown and Father Christmas’. Afterwards, we had fun acting out the story using some actions to help us. We try to use story telling vocabulary such as ‘after that’ and ‘a little while later’ so that it will enhance our writing. 

Talk for Writing

This half term we are learning how to write a story. Together we made our writers tool box. Our first talk for writing text is ‘Emily Brown and Father Christmas’. 

Christmas Hook Day!

This half term our topic is Christmas. We had an enterprise day for our hook day. It was so much fun! In the morning the children made hot chocolate reindeers, Christmas tree decorations, gift tags and bookmarks. We are going to be selling these items at the Christmas fair. During the afternoon, we decided what prices we are going to charge customers for our items. We ensured that our prices will enable us to make profit, whilst also being reasonable so to encourage customers to buy more. 

Please support us at our Christmas stall on the 29th November 2019. The stall will be in 20. 

Kinetic Sculptures

In Art we created kinetic wind sculptures. Kinetic sculptures are sculptures that can move. 

Fact hunt!

In English we had an exciting fact hunt. We searched for facts about London and tried to take down any key information that we learned. The information will help the children to write a piece of non fiction writing about London 😊. 

Everyday Materials

During Science we have been learning about how the shape of objects can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching.

Learning at home

Amalie has been enjoying our topic so much that she has been doing extra learning at home. She created a beautiful version of ‘A Walk in London’. Well done Amalie, super work!

Our Science Investigation

In Science we investigated which material would be most suitable for a tent. We tested the materials to see if they were opaque, waterproof and strong. We found that the plastic sheet was the best material for the job! Afterwards we worked in groups to make our tent. It was a bit tricky but lots of fun. 

Hot Write

A beautiful hot write produced by Felicity. She has used wonderful adjectives and used some of our core vocabulary that we have learned in topic. Well done Felicity! 

Materials

In science the children have been looking at materials. We looked at a range of objects that are made from different materials and labelled them with their properties. We learned that transparent means that you can see through the object and opaque means that you cannot see through the object. 

Making London in DT

We had lots of fun in design and technology. We used cardboard to make London. We made buildings such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the London eye. We used a map of London to help us put the landmarks in the correct places. We used directional language such as north, east, south and west to explain where landmarks are. 

Getting creative!

On Friday we had an artistic afternoon! We had lots of fun drawing physical and human features that we saw on Church Lane. We used paint, oil pastels or felt tips to create our masterpieces! 

A walk down Church Lane

During geography 2F went on a walk down Church Lane. We went to look at physical and human features. We saw physical features such as tall trees, fresh grass and green bushes. We saw human features such as grey roads, a tall church and strong gates. We had lots of fun learning outdoors, especially as the weather was glorious! 

Katie in London

Still image for this video

During talk for writing (English), we added actions to help us remember the story of Katie in London. Here is video to show you part of our story. 

We had the best afternoon with LEGO City. We had so much fun learning about the different buildings in a city. We worked in teams to build schools, fire stations, police stations, train stations and lots more. 

Religious Education

During RE this week we are learning about Islam. We have learned that Allah is the Arabic word for God. During the lesson we discussed that some things in life exist but we can’t see them, just like God. We thought about where we think God might be. The children produced beautiful art work to portray their thoughts. 

Constructing London Landmarks

Our topic this half term is ‘Life in the City’. On Friday the children had lots of fun using lego or knex to build famous landmarks in London. The children particularly loved making the London Eye and Big Ben. 

Building Our Writing Toolkit

In English this half term we are learning how to write a recount. We are using ‘Katie in London’ to help us with our learning. We looked at an example of a perfect recount and worked in partners to find which parts of the recount we thought were excellent. After that, the children used the recount to make their ‘writing toolkit’. They thought of ‘tools’ that they will need to write a recount such as past tense, adjectives and using time words such as next and after that. The word ‘tall’ reminds the children that they need work on their handwriting, particularly making sure that they make tall letters (d, l, t) tall, and short letters (a, e, u) short.
