Tuesday: every second week on this day children will have their times tables test.
|Children can practise in a variety of ways such as chanting, singing songs, drawing groups of or lots of an amount and counting in the tables to find the total and writing the tables out. They will have their test in a muddled order!|
Wednesday: hand in date for homework and spelling test

Wednesday and Thursday: these are our PE days. Please ensure children have an indoor and outdoor labelled kit and jewellery is removed.
Friday: new homework is handed out.
D&T - Making Pirate Ships
Thank you to all the grown ups and children who sent in items for this afternoon! We had a range of materials to choose from, and after looking at the designs and shapes of a range of boats we got cracking! Some of us worked in pairs whilst others worked independently. Next week we will test these in water to see which move the fastest and which are the slowest!
We have read more of our class story up to the part of a sea monster hiding in the seas, waiting for pirates to arrive so it can gobble them up! We thought about what the sea monster could be and drew this with description of the features using adjectives!
Drama - The Pirate Cruncher
Today we acted out 6 parts of the story that we have read so far! We got into character and performed freize frames for the rest of the class to see. We had to concentrate on facial expressions and body movements and control.
Today we read more of The Pirate Cruncher, and thought about what the pirates would say! We filled in speech bubbles for different characters.
RE - The Creation Story
Today we listened to the Creation Story and how God created the world in seven days. We also talked about how different people believe the world was created in other ways too and that was also okay! We decided on a day from the story and showed this using paint, chalk, collage or crayons!
Today we described a pirate scene and practised writing sentences!
Collective Worship - Respect
We have started off the term with thinking about what Respect is. We discussed it as a class and then acted what we thought it looked like. Some of us thought it was standing up for ourselves and others, treating others how you want to be treated and being kind and generous.
Summer holiday homework
Look at all this fantastic and creative homework by the new Year 2 children! A lot of treasure maps, pirate ships, cutlasses, telescopes and more!
