Talk for writing- Katie in London
The children have enjoyed listening to the Katie in London story. We made a story map of the story and retold it using actions. We then made some changes (such as instead of going to St Paul's Cathedral- they went to Wembley stadium!) The children then all added some interesting vocabulary to make the story even better!
As part of our 'life in the city' geography topic, we went on a walk down Church lane. The children spotted lots of human and physical features in the environment and then came back to school and produced some lovely writing and art work about what they saw.
The children are loving their magpie books and WOW! Look at all these incredible words Darcey 'magpied' which she will be able to use in her writing in the future.
As part of our topic work about 'cities' we learnt about what capital cities are. We used Atlases to match some countries and their capital cities.
Today 2O had their first jigsaw PSHE lesson with Jigsaw Jo and Jerrie the cat. We talked about our hopes and fears for the year and who we can turn to for support.
The children had a great day learning about the different features of a city. The day started off with a team building activity where the children had to work together to create a line of lego from one side of the hall to the other. After this, we discussed what you might find in a city. The children then built the different places which we joined together to create a fantastic lego city!
Welcome to Year 2! A big focus for us this year is to use really interesting vocabulary in our writing and the children had great fun today using their new 'magpie' books. These books are for the children to record any interesting words they hear/see/read, which they can then use in their future writing.
Our topic this half term is 'Life in the city' and in particular- London. The children have loved learning this week about the famous buildings in London and we used construction materials to make some. Here is Big Ben!
