Learning to Succeed

Falcon

Week ending 6th July

 

Wow - what a busy week we have had in Falcon class!

We have been busy doing lots of practice for sports day and getting even better at our race events.  We then wrote a recount of sports day in our English books - we really enjoyed showing off our skills.  We hope you all enjoyed watching us.

 

We have finished the book 'How To Find Gold' we made our own treasure maps for hidden treasure in school.  Afterwards we write instructions so anyone could have a go at creating their own treasure map.

Week ending 29th June

 

This week, Falcon class have been impressing Miss Roberts, who has been teaching them whilst Mrs Newell is absent.  The children have been very busy thinking about their learning over the last year for their school report comments and have been consolidating lots of maths knowledge to help them fly when they move into Year 3.

 

In art they have continued practising their pencil control and have been using their observational skills to sketch some shells.  They have been using different ways of mark making to create different effects and smudging to create texture and shadow in their pictures.

I (Miss Bisset), would like to thank Year 2 for being such an amazing class this week. We started the week by hunting for gold, and found treasure in the pirate ship. We found the book How to Find Gold and have been writing our own versions. Here they are on the treasure hunt.

Our Year 2 children enjoyed a visit from the Frampton Shanty Men. They used signal flags to make their names, learnt pirate songs and turned the capstone to bring in the anchor.

Have a go at Term 4 homework

Roll up...roll up! The circus came to town for Falcon class today. They spent the afternoon with Alex learning how to juggle, balance, spin and twirl. The children really enjoyed learning new skills - although some were rather tricky!

Falcon Class had a 'visitor' today - Mr Barn Owl, a character from our class text 'The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark' by Jill Tomlinson. Some of the children answered questions as if they were Mr Barn Owl, whilst the rest of the class asked questions based on what they had read in the book. The children in role were very good at answering the questions, using their knowledge of the story to help them.

Year 2 trip to SS Great Britain

Year 2 had a lovely trip to see SS Great Britain.  This didn't go to plan at first because the train had broken down but we had a coach instead to take us straight to the SS Great Britain.  Here are some of the photographs from the trip.

Choose an item from the main menu that we have covered in class.  As the term goes on we will cover all the items.

Happy homeworking!
