Class Blog for Class 2

Week Ending Friday 26th March 

Hello Everyone!

It has been another busy week in class 2.

On Monday, the children enjoyed another music lesson, where the children experimented with different sounds and rhythms using everyday objects.

In RE, we have continued to learn about the Easter story, and why Easter is important for Christians. The children asked some very thoughtful questions about the life of Jesus and what happened in the Easter story. They shared each other's ideas and beliefs. They enjoyed acting out the story using stick puppets and also planned and made an Easter garden, which they were able to make in forest school.

In Science this week we have been learning what 'deciduous' and 'evergreen' trees are and identifying examples of each. We have also been looking at some different types of wild flowers and during our outdoor learning we went on a wild flower hunt to see what wild flowers we have growing on the school grounds. We then examined them and looked at things including the number of petals, the shape of the petals, the shape of the stem and if they had any leaves. 

In Maths, Year 1 have been enjoying working practically to explore weight and mass, while year 2 have been learning about halves and quarters.

In English this week, we have been learning about different types of sentences such as commands, exclamations, questions and statements. We will use our learning next week, when we will be writing poems. There will also be a whole school poetry competition.

Thank you to those who emailed a picture of your child's favourite book for our show and tell session. It was lovely to hear how enthusiastic the children are, about reading their favourite book. They were able to discuss their favourite characters and say why they loved their book.

Next week, we will be enjoying some fun Easter games and an Easter egg hunt, to finish off the week.



Things to remember for next week:

*Wear Forest school clothes into school on Wednesday.
*Bring in decorated egg for competition on Wednesday.
*Wear trainers to school on Thursday for PE.

*Last day of term is Thursday 1st April. We return to school on Monday 19th April. 

 


Week ending Friday 19th March 

Hello Everyone!

The children have had a lovely week this week.

On Tuesday, we enjoyed a music lesson, where we met a visiting music teacher. We used instruments to shake rhythms and enjoyed learning some new songs.

In English, we completed our Jack and the Beanstalk stories. I was impressed at how independent the Year 1 children were, and some Year 2 children joined their handwriting very successfully for the first time. The vocabulary that some children were using to tell their stories, was also very impressive. Well done everyone.

In science with Mrs Forbes, the children have been growing seeds, in order to find out what plants need to grow. Next week, we will find out which conditions were best for these plants, to see if our predictions were right. We have also been looking at the different parts of a plant and what these parts do. We used this learning to create some wonderful art work for our topic display. 

On Thursday, the children enjoyed a PE session with the ARENA coach. The weather was fine and the class were able to use the playground. ALL children were praised yet again for excellent listening skills and behaviour. Well done class 2!

On Friday, we learned about Palm Sunday. We made palm leaves, read a story and acted out this part of the Easter story, waving our homemade palm leaves. Next week will continue with the rest of the Easter story.

Thank you to everyone who donated money to comic relief on Friday. We enjoyed a whole class assembly via TEAMS with Miss Edwards and the children enjoyed seeing each other, and the cheerful clothes that we were all wearing.


Reminders for this week:
Wednesday - wear forest school clothes into school instead of uniform.
Thursday - please wear trainers to school for our Arena PE session.
Friday - our themed show and tell session didn't take place last week. Please can you email a picture of your child reading their favourite book? This could be in a favourite place, or an unusual or a cosy place. Thank you.
Each day - please keep sending reading books and records in every day. 








 


Week ending Friday 12th March 


Welcome back everyone!

It has been such a lovely week in class 2. The children had a wonderful time in forest school on Monday, finding frogspawn, making dens and playing together. They have enjoyed dancing and singing again every morning to supermovers, talking and playing eye spy while they eat their lunch, running and playing at playtimes, building models together, all of the normal everyday things that they were so used to doing together before lockdown. 

On Thursday, they enjoyed their first PE session with arena. Many of the children were praised and rewarded with house points from the Arena teacher for their excellent behaviour and for working well together. We were so proud of them.

We have been continuing with our Jack and the Beanstalk topic in literacy, and have also continued this theme with many of our learning through play activities. We have also been learning some Jack and the Beanstalk songs and have started to grow our own beanstalks, complete with a castle at the top.

We hope you have enjoyed a lovely Mother's Day and have enjoyed your weekend, knowing that the children are coming back to school on Monday.

Reminders for this week:
Wednesday - wear forest school clothes into school instead of uniform.
Each day - please keep sending reading books and records into school every day. We quarantine books before sending them home to another household. 
Thursday - please remember to wear trainers for our Arena PE session.
For Friday - please can the children talk about their favourite book for a show and tell session. If you wish, you can take a picture of your child reading their book, from anywhere at all.  Please email any pictures to: hefenton@pelyntprimary.co.uk

Thank you!

Thursday 4th March 


Hello Everyone!

We hope you are able to celebrate World Book Day today, by either sharing a story or enjoying a book, wherever and however you choose. There are some fantastic ideas and stories to be found at: https://www.worldbookday.com/ 

Miss Edwards invites you to share a story with her online at 1.00pm
, when she would like you to find somewhere comfortable to sit and bring a teddy/soft toy to listen to her story with you. This will be on TEAMS as usual. The channel is 'Class 2 All'.  If that channel is not visible then click on 'hidden channels'.

After Mrs Edwards has read a story to you all at 1:00, Mrs Fenton will stay with the Year 2 children for the remainder of the meeting, for your final TEAMS session.

There will still be a Year 1 TEAMS meeting with Mrs Fenton today at 11:30.

Monday 1st March 


Hello everyone,

This is our final week of home learning blogs, before we all return next week! We are all really looking forward to seeing your children next week. 
I hope you have enjoyed the sunshine this weekend and have managed to get outside.

Our learning continues with our Jack and the Beanstalk theme, which will carry on when we return to school. 

This week we have World Book Day on Thursday 4th March and Miss Edwards has some interesting things planned for you. On Friday our whole school home learning will be all about Cornwall and St Piran's Day. There will be no online lessons on that day, just one learning grid for everyone to choose activities from. You can then complete these tasks together with members of your family and we would love you to share what you have done with us.

Our live TEAMS sessions will be as follows this week:

                                                                                                                                   Monday: 11:30 Year 1 Phonics/Reading
