Class 7

I want to say a huge well done to Class 7 for coming back to school and quickly settling in after their long summer break. You are all super stars!
This half term our topic is 'happily ever after' and all of our work will be linked to traditional tales. Here are some of the things we have already done in class and few things that you can look forward to doing over the next few weeks. 
We had a vote to find out what our favourite traditional tale is. Hansel and Gretel was the winner so we transformed our reading area into the witches gingerbread house! It looks amazing (and tasty)! 
In English we wrote our own versions of Hansel and Gretel, which were fabulous. In maths we have been learning about place value and solving number problems. We have also started a DT project where we are designing and making a puppet, to look like a character from a traditional tale. (I told you we have been busy!)
Class 7 have already discussed what they want to learn next! We have decided to read Mr Wolf's Pancakes, learn how to make pancakes and write the recipe to take home so we can make pancakes with our friends and family. We will visit a local shop to buy the ingredients we need, where we will work out the cost and pay the cashier. Finally we will draw maps to show how we got to the shops and the journeys that characters make in traditional tales. 
I hope you have enjoyed your first few weeks in Year 2 and are looking forward to what we have in store for the next few weeks,
Mrs Seaman.

I hope you have all had a lovely summer holiday and enjoyed your time in the sunshine. However, I can't wait to see you back at school and I am extremely excited to work with my class, in Year 2. Although you will have lots of hard work to do I will make sure that we have fun along the way. 
Looking forward to seeing you soon, 
Mrs Seaman. 

In Class 7 we have had so much fun this year and we can not believe it is nearly over!

One of our favourite moments was visiting Barnes Park, where we learned about our heritage. We talked to lots of people including: soldiers, actors, miners and many more. It was a great day and we even got to ride on the visiting fair ground.

We have also had many chances to make things in Year 2. One of the most tasty things was a milkshake, it was yummy! We designed it, made it and finally drank it. After this we write instructions about how to make our yummy milkshake and shared them with our friends in the school.

Another great day was the day we met the local firemen. We got to learn all about the engine and even got to hear the engine and watch how powerful the hose was. We learned how to stay safe and wrote a leaflet to give to the younger children in our school, explaining how to stay safe if a fire breaks out.

When we were learning about fire and keeping safe we read lots of stories about fire breathing dragons. We write fabulous stories about the Paperbag Princess and her dragon and we even got to meet some real life dragons. It was scary but fun at the same time!
