Welcome back Year 2 / 3!!!

We hope you had a lovely Easter holiday and ate lots of chocolate! It's great to be back to some beautiful sunshine to start the summer term. As it's getting warmer please ensure your child brings a sunhat and suncream is applied before school in the morning. 

 

We cannot wait to start our learning journey with you all and dive deep into our topic this term which is 'Once Upon a Time'. We will start by completing our E.P.I.C (Everyone Plans In Class) board to see what we want to learn about this term! I'm sure there will be lots of amazing ideas. 

 

Please familiarise yourselves with our class page as this is where lots of our communication happens. We use it for weekly homework and spelling, as well as sharing lots of photos and videos of our learning in class.   

 

As always, contact us via email on phillipsc303@hwbcymru.net / evanss527@hwbcymru.net if you have any questions or concerns (or something wonderful to share with us!)

 

 

Homework/Spellings

Homework will be given out on a Friday and will need to be returned by the following Monday. We will upload the homework onto the class page unless we need to provide a paper copy of any resources. 

 

Spellings will also be uploaded to the class page on a Friday and these words will be tested the following Friday in class. 

 

PE
P.E. is on a Tuesday and Thursday. All children will need to wear suitable clothes and trainers on these days.

The lovely team at 2b Enterprising joined us this morning to start off our entrepreneurial project linked to the bees and honey! We read the story of "The Bumbles of Honeywood" and completed a business card and introduced ourselves to our peers. We learned we need to Bee Kind, Bee Brave, Bee Strong and Bee Confident!

World Book Day

We had the most lovely World Book Day!

We chatted about the characters we were dressed up in and did a class character quiz! 

We had a rotation of activities this morning including our book reviews, character descriptions, redesigning book covers and making bookmarks. 

 

This afternoon we completed a visualisation activity. We listened to different pieces of music and drew characters we thought the music sounded like. They were amazing! We had a drama workshop with Mr Stockton and the children had lots of fun! We have read lots of stories today, including our favourite pigeon books!

Mrs Rees has said the children had a (chicken!) ball today tasting lots of traditional foods from China. They had egg fried rice, noodle soup, vegetable spring rolls and dumplings, lychees in syrup, fruit pudding, fruit mallows, snap pea crisps and prawn crackers with hoisin and sweet chilli sauce to dip!

Children In Need 2021

We had the best intentions with our bonfire night artwork. The children used oil pastels to fully colour in a blank sheet and then completely covered it in black paint. Patiently,  overnight we let them dry and we were so excited to scratch our bonfire night designs using toothpicks - however we were VERYYY disappointed that the colour didn't come through!

 

Some of the boys were very keen to try all ways to get the colour to come through; with little success, so we gave up! It was a great way to discuss the fact that not everything goes to plan! Hope they all had fun in the process!!!!

How Big is a Million?

Still image for this video
We read the story 'How Big is a Million'. It is about a penguin called Pipkin who knows what 10, 100 and 1,000 looks like but doesn't know what a million looks like. His mum shows him the stars in the sky and he sees 1,000,000 stars! There is a poster in the book that actually shows what a million looks like! The children absolutely loved the book and decided that they wanted to see how many items they could count...

We counted in tens and then grouped the tens into hundreds. We estimated we could count 10,000 things! We counted pegs, lego, blocks, cubes, pens, pencils, coins... lots of things!! It took 25 children all afternoon and we finally totaled up all our counting. We counted 4,310 things! We were exhausted! What's even more amazing is that we also managed to tidy the classroom back up!

Planets orbit the sun

Still image for this video
We have found out how planets orbit the sun. It takes each planet a different numbers of days to make one full orbit of the sun. The further the planet is from the sun, the longer it takes to orbit.

We have been learning the order of the planets

We’ve enjoyed learning about the planets!
