Pine (Y2)

Weekly Update: 14/01/2022

We have absolutely loved starting our new PE sessions with the sports coach this week. It has been great to see the children really excited and keen for PE, they have all got stuck in and worked hard. We enjoyed learning some Spanish this week, we started to count in Spanish. I wonder if anyone can remember how to count to 5? We have continued to explore our new text, The Snowflake Mistake . We have been thinking about various machines and the sounds they may make in preparation for when we design our own machine next week. In Maths we have been working on statistics and have focused on pictograms, the children gathered information using a tally chart and then used the information to create their own pictograms. See if your child can talk to you about why having a Key is important when using pictograms. This week in Science we explored and compared the life cycle of a sheep and a frog, it was interesting to discuss the differences. Have a great weekend.

What a wonderful week in Pine Class. We have been feeling very jolly and in the Christmas spirit. We started the week with making and writing our Christmas cards for our friends and family. We absolutely loved getting the chance to sing to our grown-ups and we hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. On Wednesday we had our tasty Christmas dinner and the children had fun pulling crackers, wearing hats and telling each other jokes. Alongside all the fun we have also worked really hard in Maths. We have been looking at odd and even numbers and then began dividing numbers by 5. In English we wrote the Christmas story and worked hard on our handwriting. Have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy spending time together. See you all in 2022 for lots more learning!

This week in Pine Class we have been starting to feel the Christmas spirit. We have decorated our class tree and created our own advent calendar. Each child made a star and wrote a wish for others, we have been enjoying reading them. We have started to practice our songs for our singalong and have been making head bands for us to wear on the day. In History, we wrote a diary entry from the perspective of someone that may been in London during the Great Fire. The children have really enjoyed our topic, London’s Burning and can hopefully tell you lots of new information. The children have loved Maths this week, we have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, and they are getting really confident at using their counting skills to answer various questions. This week we added our wheels to our fire engines, they are coming along really well. Our Gold Award goes to Lilia this week for always working hard and being a positive member of our class!

This week we have started to think about our Christmas assembly and started to sing the songs. In English we have been reading the story that we will be using for the assembly and the children have been writing invitations to bring home. They have been very excited and are looking forward to getting into the Christmas spirit. In Maths we have been exploring word problems - the children were learning to pick out all the important information, write the number sentence and use a suitable method to find the answer. On Friday morning we absolutely loved joining in with the Diwali Dance Workshop, the children had a great time. See if they can show you some moves. Pine Class Gold Award goes to Zachary this week for his focus during our Science investigation and for making brilliant predictions. We were investigating how we can make a toy car speed up, slow down and change direction.

This week we we wrote our reflections about the book, Where The Poppies Now Grow. The children worked really hard when thinking about how the book made them feel and they wrote some wonderful extended sentences. In Science we completed an investigation to see which materials we could use to make different shapes/objects. The children wrote predictions before completing the challenge. We used rice, pipe cleaners, play dough, straws and sponges. The children focused on what they had to do in order to make them, did they have to pull, push, twist or squish it? Ask your child if their prediction was correct. During PSHE we created posters with suggestions for how we can make people happy. The children came up with lots of ways to make their friends, teachers and families happy and it was great to hear all their suggestions on how to make someone smile each day. Pine Class Gold Award goes to Fran this week for always working hard and with a great big smile on her face.

Happy Friday everyone. As always, it’s been very busy in Pine Class. This week we have started our next book, Where the Poppies Now Grow. It’s a fantastic book and the children have enjoyed listening to the story and exploring the new vocabulary. The book is great to introduce the children to the meaning of Remembrance Day. Over the next week the children will be writing a reflective paragraph about the book. On Thursday we attended an assembly for Remembrance and took part in the 2 minute silence. We made our own poppies. During computing we looked at old and new technology, we considered how it has changed over time. We then went on to think about how to take a good photograph and when to use portrait or landscape mode. See if your child can give you an example of when to use them both! Our Gold Award this week goes to Hunter for his enthusiasm to challenge himself in Maths.

Welcome back to Term 2. We have enjoyed our first week back and have been very busy. In English we have been exploring the Poem, Crackle! Spit! We worked hard to create our own poems in a similar style. Please take a look at a couple of examples below. We started our next DT unit this week. For this unit we will be making our own fire engines. This week we started off by making comparisons between fire engines that we see today and those in the past. We labelled a modern day fire engine. See if your child can tell remember any of the important parts! Maths has been all about money, the children have spent time recognising the coins and notes, selected given amounts and starting to add various coins/notes together. Have a great weekend and enjoy any fireworks.
