Welcome back to a new school year!
We have had a lovely first week back which has been action packed and has flown by. We have been spending lots of time getting to know each other and have had lots of fun along the way.
We began the week by looking at the pictures of the dream jars that different people had collected in London and Mrs Clinkard definitely won the prize for collecting the most, so a very big thank you for her and her family’s enthusiasm on this little challenge. Although a very special thank you should also go to Mrs Byron who also managed to collect rather a few for us.
We listened to an extract from The BFG by Roald Dahl and discussed what our dreams would be… some of us dreamt that we would go to Fairyland, others would build massive towers and quite a few wanted to fly. We then drew our dreams and placed them into dream jars which we decorated.
The following day we wrote about our dreams using adjectives and our senses to describe them.
In Art we began to make dream catchers which was rather tricky at times making sure that the wool didn’t get too tangled as we threaded it through.
In Big Write we wrote all about our Summer holidays and then looked at how we could improve our writing the following day.
In Maths we have been estimating and guessing different amounts. We ordered numbers as quickly as we could.
We also used beaded lines to find numbers and the Year 2s were using them to count in jumps of 2, 5 and 10.
Our new topic is all about plants, trees and garden birds. On Wednesday afternoon we went for a lovely walk to see how many different trees we could spot.
We brought lots of leaves back to the classroom and matched them to pictures of the correct trees. We then decided which trees were deciduous and which were evergreen.
We had a vote to decide who our Worship and School council representatives would be for this year and they are;
Worship council – Jemima & Heather
School council – Noah & Imogen
Show and Tell next week will be topic related ( plants, trees and garden birds)
Monday – Riley
Tuesday – Harriet
Wednesday – Imogen Cima
Thursday – Max
Friday – Noah
A letter regarding this week’s homework has come home in your child’s book bag and should be handed in by Tuesday if possible.
Please have a look at the Greys class page for general information regarding our weekly routine and there will also be an information session on Monday 19th September at 9am and 3:30pm to find out what lies ahead in Greys class for the next term. Should you have any questions in the meantime please feel free to come and speak to Mrs Hawkins.
Have a lovely weekend.
