In History today we have a debate. We were considering why people wanted to kill King James I. We were giving different options to consider and debate with our class mates.

What an exciting week! This week we have had the chance to go to the Village Hall to practise the Christmas performance. The children have been singing beautifully, getting into character superbly and have remembered their words amazingly. You are in for a treat.
This week we have started to learn about time in maths and the children have been reading the time shown on an analogue clock. Next week we will be drawing our own hands on clock to show times.
At the beginning of the week, we received a letter from Santa so we spent our English lessons planning and writing letters back to Santa. We've also had an elf called Ralph join our class this week who has come to watch us and keep an eye on us, before reporting back to Santa.

The children have been working hard this week, continuing to learn about The Gunpowder Plot. They have made their own books that sequence the events of what happen and they look lovely up in the classroom.
They have finished writing their own versions of 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' were they made some adaptations to the original story. They chose a different animal that they were looking for and chose different habitats too.
As well as all of that, they have been practising the Christmas performance. Not long now!
We're Going on a Bear Hunt
In English this week (week beginning 11th November), we have started to learn about a text called 'We're going on a Bear Hunt'. We have enjoyed watching Michael Rosen perform the story on a video and then used this to help us perform the story in small groups. We have been picking out the key adjectives that are used in the story to help us write our own expanded noun phrases.
Monday 4th November
Since returning back to school we have been exploring the features of poems and have been using our senses to describe different aspects of fireworks and bonfire night. We have also spent some time performing poems too. This week we will be planning and writing our own poems, applying the features we have been exploring.
Our first week in Year 2:
We have had a great first week back and have been very busy.
We started our week with designing and creating our own aliens using different materials. The children's final products are brilliant. We had a lovely walk to the woods where the children explored the different habitats and the animals that live in them. We have started to learn about the world and the seven continents and five oceans that it is made up of. To end our first week we had a fire on the field where we sang camp fire songs and ate marshmallows and biscuits. What a great start to Year 2!
We are looking forward to seeing you all back on Monday.
Year 2's MyMaths homework will be set each Friday to be completed by the following Friday.
This gives you a week to access the task, practise as necessary and as frequently as you would like, and then complete the questions for the homework section. We will be able to see when you have completed the task and how well you have got on which will help us to know if you might need a little bit more help. You can complete the questions more than once if you would like to try to improve your score. If you have any questions - please ask.
Friday 8th June 2018
The children have settled back into school really well and have impressed us with their hard-working attitudes. We have started a new book in English called 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' and the children have spent time this week planning alternative endings and writing their own version of the story.
We have been doing time work in maths which the chidlren have really impressed us with. This week we have focused on reading the time on a clock and next week we will focus on showing the time on a clock by drawing our own hands.
We are continue to monitor the growth of our plants in Science and the transformation over our week is school was incredible.
Today we have a visit from Carl who did a gym workshop with us. You can see pictures and videos below.
What an exciting term ahead!

Today, the eggs arrived at school. They arrived with a letter that was written in dragonese. We had to decode the letter and try and work out what it was telling us. It was a letter from a mummy dragon who asked us to look after her baby dragons until she was safe. She will be coming back to collect them soon.
