Deer- Year 2

Welcome to Deer Class- Year 2!

 

We have made a wonderful start to the year!  The children have come back to school full of bright 'ideers' and have thrown themselves into  learning. We have already grown our brains but also have so much more to look forward to!

Last week, we had lots of fun making apple crumble! We followed the recipe instructions , practising our peeling, cutting, mixing and rubbing skills! This week, we followed up the activity by writing our own set of instructions.  THANK YOU to all of the parents who donated the ingredients so that we could do this fun activity.

Friday 19th October: As part of our 'Light' topic, we have been learning about a plant which LOVES light - the sunflower! Did you know that sunflowers always turn towards the sun and follow it wherever it is in the sky? We did some brilliant writing about the lifecycle of a sunflower and used lots of super science words like 'germinates' and 'seedling'.

We have also planted our own sunflower seeds so that we can watch the lifecycle in action! So far, they are growing beautifully!

Week 5 

The children in Deer class have been working very hard this week.  In Maths we have learnt how to add 3 digit numbers by exchanging and hiding our extra tens and ones in the cellar until we need them! In English we have been looking at non fiction texts before thinking of questions that we could pose to our friends, and answering theirs. We have really enjoyed finding out more about light and seasons in our topic. Did you know that people in Australia sometimes spend the day on the beach?! We were very surprised to discover that whilst it is Winter here, it is Summer there.

Our focus Common Exception Words next week will be : pass, class, grass, should, people. Please practice these over the weekend to give your child a head start.

 

We have been working so hard on our handwriting. Look at the progress we have made so far, in just 5 weeks!

Thursday 4th October 2018

Today we were launched into space (virtually)!  We had a brilliant time whizzing through the solar system, discovering lots of fascinating new facts on our journey.  We have many budding astronauts in Year 2 - maybe one of them will be the first Deer in space??  

 

 

 

 

Roald Dahl Day

Roald Dahl Day 1
Last week we celebrated Roald Dahl's birthday!  We watched a clip from the musical 'Matilda' and wrote about the things we might like to do 'When I Grow Up'.
