Happy New Year to you all! We've had a busy three days already as we have got stuck into our new topic of farming and Wybunbury.
It was such a busy first day back. We had music, P.E and Forest School. In our first session we learnt all about the rhythms and routines of the session and spent lots of time designing and building our very own dens for our small toys. We used teamwork to think about our shelters. Well done, team!
In reading, we changed our challenge books and explored some of the farming books we have in school. We also had a special mystery reader on Friday. We had the pleasure of hearing Jacob's mum reading an amazing farming inspired story. Thank you so much!
In English, we spent the first lesson focusing on adjectives and how we can use them to make our writing more exciting. We wrote brilliant sentences about the giant from Jack and the Beanstalk. We then spent time on Friday completing our cold write all about defeating a monster story. We start our new T4W journey on Monday. How exciting!
We jumped straight into our art project for this term and took part in a mini BIG art project. We are looking at sculptures this term and we spent the week discussing sculptures and the materials they can be made from. We then used foil to create our own mini figures. We used pinching, bending and twisting to bring our tin foil to life. We also used play dough this week as a precursor to clay that we will use next week. We practised by using a range of techniques. We will continue to explore sculptures next week. Well done, team!
In Maths, we started our new unit on multiplication and division. We focused on dividing this week and the relationship it shares with multiplication. We now know this as the inverse operation. We used a range of methods to help us divide by 2, 5 and 10.
Well Year 2, your first music lesson of this half term was a busy one! You drew your lovely space pictures onto your study-work page. You then listened and responded to a song entitled – 'Rainbows.' You loved watching the onscreen character make his way through his day. Rainbows symbolise peace, happiness and positivity. We drew our feelings and emotions about this song. We added vibrant rainbow colours to bring our drawings alive!
Have a lovely weekend,
