Class Presentation

Our class presentation was a huge success and all the children loved being able to explain to you all the different skills they have been learning in various subjects. Thank you to all the parents and family who could make it. Below our two videos showing the class presentation and the class fairy-tale film they had made in a workshop. Hope you Enjoy!

 

 

 

What is a cherry model? 

In maths a cherry model can be used to partition numbers and show parts of a whole number.  Below are some examples showing how you can use cherry models in different ways.

Fairy- tale Workshop

 

The last 5 weeks in year two have been very busy and the children are getting use to the daily routine and have really enjoyed our topic Once Upon a Time looking at different fairy-tales and investigating and learning different skills across the curriculum. Today we were lucky enough to have a visitor come in and children took part and created their very own Fairy-tale. Children enjoyed dressing  up, acting and playing a role in the play. Below are some pictures showing you just how much fun we had. 

 

Junk Modelling Castles in Art

 

This week we have enjoyed making our castles using different junk modelling resources, tape, scissors and  painting them to make them colourful. Children really enjoyed learning different techniques to fold the card, make joints and create designs on their castles. Thanks for all your help bringing in all the resources for children make their castles with. 

 

 

Year 2H

 

Welcome to the website page for 2H. This term we are going to be learning about fairy-tales. In our topic we are going to be; testing everyday materials, directions and prepositional phrases, creating junk model castles and in D&T we are going to be creating a costume for our favourite fairy-tale characters. Don't forget to save any cardboard and clean, empty containers for our junk modelling lessons.

In our first week at school we have been busy creating our own self-portraits and designed our castles ready to be made out of our junk modelling resources this week.
