Y2 DEERS 2022-2023

Wednesday 21st September 2022

In English this week, the children are writing sequels to The Snail and the Whale. Today, we planned our new stories in words and pictures. We had to make sure there was a problem and a resolution. Tomorrow we will begin our careers as authors by writing the opening scenes of our stories. Watch this space!

 

 

Friday 16th September 2022

We spent some time this week reflecting on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The children had fond memories of celebrating the Queen's 70 years on the throne earlier in the summer. They enjoyed watching the lovely tea party with Her Majesty  and Paddington Bear. After looking at photos of her life from a baby to old age, Deer Class shared their thoughts with each other.

"She was a lovely lady."

"She wore a beautiful crown."

"She was 96 years old."

"She can be with her husband now."

Forest School

We were all so excited to restart our forest school lessons on Monday! We said hello again to Jordy the squirrel and reminded ourselves of the rules we follow to keep everyone safe. We noticed that there had been some changes in the environment since we were last there. The bluebells are not flowering now. This was a sign of the changing of the season as we move into autumn. The children then got to be explorers and hunted around the woods to see what they could find. They sorted their discoveries into natural and man-made objects. (We found Lego and a cup as well as leaves and minibeasts!)

Friday 9th September 2022

 Deer Class have been settling into their new environment with excitement! Here we are using our brand new atlases.

We revised some learning from Year 1, naming the 7 continents of the world. We sang a song about them too!

 

In Science, the children sorted pictures of animals and their babies. We found that some baby animals look just like their parents (elephants and cats), but others are completely different (caterpillars and butterflies, tadpoles and frogs)
