I hope that you all had a lovely summer holidays. I am really looking forward to the busy term ahead, where we will be thinking all about our big question, 'Would you rather live in England or Kenya?'. It is wonderful to welcome our Year 1s into class 2 and welcome back our Year 2s.
This year the class will be taught by Mrs Hobkirk Monday to Wednesday and Thursday and Friday morning. Ms Hood will teach PE each Thursday afternoons throughout the year and for the first half of this term, on a Friday afternoon, the children will be taught French and Music by Miss Riddle. During the second half term, Ms Hood will teach computing on a Friday afternoon.
To find out what we have been up to in class, please visit our class webpage where photographs of our learning will be regularly updated.
We will be taking our learning outside as much as much so please ensure that your child has a pair of wellies in school each day.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Mrs Kelly Hobkirk
Our history lesson this week was all about the the toys our grandparents might have played with. We played tiddlywinks, ring toss, dominoes, beetle drive, dominoes and with Lego, just like our grandparents might have done when they were little. We thought of interesting questions to ask Mrs Dearman who kindly came in to tell us about the games and toys she played with when she was little.
Just like the character, Lottie in our new story the children stepped through the door and entered the magical world of the old toy room.
We enjoyed a virtual visit from the author Andy Seed today. He read us some extracts from his new book 'An Interview With A Tiger'. We all enjoyed finding out about the interesting and humour answers the tiger gave when asked a range of different questions.
As a reward for filling our class marble jar we enjoyed an afternoon all based around books, reading and story telling. The classroom was full of excitement and it was wonderful to see the children enjoying all of the activities, from making story characters from playdough, sharing their favourite books with a friend to creating an oral story using story telling cards.
We had fun practising our counting of natural objects such as flowers and
