Odd weeks 

Upcoming weeks this half term- Week 5, Week 7

Visit from the Fire Fighters- We learnt about fire safety and we also re-enacted the Great Fire of London and then watched the Fire Fighters do their job.

Gymnastics- We enjoyed our balance gymnastics class. We also learnt how to safely collaborate to get the equipment out.

E-Safety Day 

Today we refreshed our memories on how to keep safe when we are online.

These are the TOP TIPS from TIGERS...

 

When messages come you have to ask a grown up because it can be stranger danger
Don’t give other people your personal information
Don’t be mean to other people online
Don’t talk to mean people/people you do not know
Before you click think
Do not press buttons if you do not know
Ask an adult if you do not know
Only go on youtube with an adult
When you have a funny feeling tell an adult

Our new Building Learning Power attribute is Collaboration! 

 

Well done to Tiger class for their collaboration during Science! It was wonderful to see you working as a team to fold paper planes and carry out scientific investigations! 

 

Tiger class collaborated in their Houses last week in their PE lesson. Each house worked together to practice their ball dribbling skills. 

 

Every day Tiger Class collaborate in their Maths Lesson. It is fantastic to watch everyone working together to solve challenging maths questions. 

 

Well done Tiger Class for displaying Collaboration everyday in many ways! 

Stick Mark Boom 

 

We have been working with our new marking scheme Stick. Mark. Boom! Our new scheme allows the children to understand what we will be learning throughout Year 2, we also know the statements that are going to allow us to achieve different types of texts. We have been developing our self marking and peer marking against these statements. It has been a challenge and there is much to learn, but the children are approaching the new scheme with enthusiasm and resilience. We are very excited about how far our learning can go using our new scheme! Well done to all the Year 2's for their hard work and perseverance! 

CONGRATULATIONS 

As a class, we would like to congratulate our class representatives on our school's

Junior Leadership Team (JLT):

Well done to Kelsi and Vishnu! 

WOW! 

What a busy first few weeks we have had back. We have delved right into our unit of Inquiry and are enjoying learning all about the inventors, history and science of FLIGHT! 

 

Science: 

We have learnt about the forces on an aeroplane during flight

> Thrust 

<Drag 

^ Lift 

Weight 

 

We have carried out simple tests where we have predicted, changed variables, recorded data and drawn conclusions from our findings. 

We learnt: 

  That different variables effect how far a plane flies

 

Maths:

Exploring place value has been fun, we have engaged in many different games and hands on activities that have allowed us to visually see numbers as Hundreds, Tens and Ones. We have been ordering, sequencing and stating the value of digits. Mental Maths has been an exciting addition to our Maths Lessons and the children are setting their own personal goals and challenges each day!

 

English: 

Our hands have been extremely busy writing lately with recounts, character descriptions, thank you letters and non-chronological reports.

 

The BFG has been a welcomed visitor each day as we lose our-self in the wonderful Roald Dahl story. We even had a chance to try SNOZZCUMBER! We have mixed class views on how tasty the Giant Snack actually is!  

 

Pilot Tracey 

Our school was very fortunate to have a special visit from Pilot Tracey. Tracey inspired us to work hard at what we want to achieve in life, to follow our dreams and to never give up. As an adventurer, we enjoyed hearing about the amazing experiences you can have when you take risks! Tracey's visit left us wanting to know more about famous Pilots from history. We are going to be researching this more in our English Lessons. We would like to say a very heartfelt thank you to Pilot Tracey!
