Week 3-

Class 2 have been very busy this week. We have been writing a question and answer interview with Neil Armstrong, working with number lines up to 100, learning about the continents of the world (check Class Dojo for a song to practise!) and today we celebrated everything apples! We all had the opportunity to bake apple crumbles (they smell delicious!), painted apples and even wrote our own poems- only after tasting a variety of apples to inspire our descriptions!


Forest School with the Year 1s this week was full of creativity and play. Children foraged for blackberries and crushed them to make their own paint. They used the paint to decorate pieces of fabric to make flags. The also used sandstone, mud and charcoal to make other coloured natural paints. Some children also enjoyed making a museum of natural treasures, tree climbing, chilling in hammocks and den building.



Week 2- 

In Class 2 this week we have been settling into our routines and getting to know each other better by thinking of questions to ask each other using our '5 Ws'. In Maths we've been thinking about counting on and partitioning two digit numbers. Also, as part of our Geography we went on an adventure around Symondsbury practising our mapwork. We were able to label road names, the church and the river. I wonder if you can spot any geographical features on a map at home..
This week also saw the return of swimming for Year 2 and Forest School for Year 1. Such a busy week and its only Week 2!! 


Week 1- 

It has been so great to see the children in Class 2 come into school this week with so much energy and enthusiasm to learn. We have been getting to know each other and talking about our summer holiday. In Literacy we have been learning to ask and write questions. Encourage us to think of questions we might want to find answers to based around our new topic. We can't wait to get started with this next week. 

Well Done on such a great start Class 2!
