Year 2

Welcome to Class 2
Our Weekly Class Blog
Homework 21st May 2021
This week, I would like the children to write a diary entry based about what they get up to over the weekend/week.
Try and include:
  • Capital letters and punctuation
  • Expanded noun phrases (can you use exciting adjectives?)
  • Conjunctions e.g. because, and, but, so, only if...
  • Make your writing interesting for the reader
The children could hand write, using their neatest possible handwriting, and email to the class email or they could write it using one of the writing tools on Purple Mash.
In class we have been working hard on remembering when to use the correct punctuation and also making our writing more detailed with adjectives and conjunctions.

This week, you will be learning 5 words that use the suffix -ful  for your spellings.

Thank you to everyone who has returned their reading diaries this week. Below is a blank reading diary for you to fill out and email back each week/when complete. If you are unable to complete the diaries in Microsoft Word and need the diary printing please let me know and I can organise this for you.

First Week Back Post Lockdown 
This week, we welcomed all the children back to school and everyone has settled back in so brilliantly. The children have been fantastic at following the new rules and have all enjoyed seeing their friends and getting back into the swing of things. It's great to have them all back!
There is lots of work on display in our windows from this week, so please do take a look as you walk past. The children have also really enjoyed researching jokes to create a whole class joke book, dissecting daffodils and learning how to conduct.
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend, see you all next week!

Alien Invasion
On Monday we found some very unusual clues in Forest School. There were lots of alien objects such as slime, alien eggs, a spaceship and pieces of the spaceship scattered across Forest School. We think the aliens have gone missing as we couldn't find any trace of them! We called the police and they told us to write an evidence list and asked us to film some news reports. We have put up missing alien posters around the school, but there is no sign of the aliens yet. If you see or hear anything please let a member of Class 2 know as soon as possible!

Class Harvest Festival
Today in Class 2, we ventured into Gruff Land to collect fallen leaves in order to create hedgehog and squirrel collages. We then created vegetable collages using different textured paper. The children really enjoyed creating the collages and experimenting with different materials and colours. We also talked about how our food is grown, harvested and distributed. Together, we created our own Harvest display with all of the generous donations and amazing art work produced.

Anya Acres - Author Visit
Today the children were surprised with a virtual visit from Anya Acres the author of 'Ollie Discovers the Planets'. The children enjoyed hearing the story read to them by Anya and we also got some top tips on how to become brilliant authors. Luckily, last week we had been learning all about question sentences and so we were able to come up with lots of questions for Anya, which she kindly answered.
