Welcome to Willow Class.
This is our classroom.
Meet and Greet.
It was lovely to meet and chat to many of you at the meet and greet session on Monday 10th September. We hope you enjoyed looking around the classrooms and meeting all of the Year 2 staff. Hopefully many of your questions about life in Year 2 were answered during the presentation or later in the classroom.
I have included a copy of the presentation for any parents who were unable to come on the night.
Important Class Information.
Dangers and Delights of the Sea.
This term we are learning all about the dangers and delights of the sea.
We had a great "beach day" to launch our topic. We build sandcastles, looked for treasure, had donkey races, made kites and puppets, went paddling, played beach games and even sunbathed and ate ice-cream.
We learnt all about Little Boat and the great journey he went on to meet his friends. At the beginning of the story he felt very small in the big ocean all by himself. Once he was with his friends he had a fantastic adventure. We created a text map to help us to remember the story.
We have enjoyed reading lots of poems about the seaside and identifying rhyming words. We also read Commotion in the Ocean. It is a rhyming book which describes lots of different creatures in the sea.
There are lots of different animals in the sea and we have been learning different facts about them.
No Pens Wednesday.
Wednesday 3rd October was no pens Wednesday. We did maths and literacy without any writing! In the afternoon we learnt all about the seasons and enjoyed lots of art activities.
