We had lots of challenges to do with thinking about numbers on the NSPCC Number Day.

Look at the numbers on our clothes too! We thought of a number game Neo could play with the storm whale.

 

Some fabulous work year 2 are doing on bucket filling - We saw a school in Ireland had done this and we thought we'd like to try it too.  We love being the greeter at the start of each new session but we love being able to choose our greeting.

Which one would you choose if you visited our classroom?  Look here.

 

 

We have been enjoying the story "Claude in the City" this term.  Claude is a beret wearing dog who has an expedition to London with his best friend Sir Bobblysock!  From this story we found out about London and discovered places to visit and things to see.  We had a great deal of fun pretending to be different characters and answering questions as if we actually were those characters.  

Our writing shows that we can write a postcard from London and that we can write a newspaper report of the Art Gallery trip when Claude saves the day!  We are getting better at re-reading our writing and changing it to make it perfect.  

We are now super-spellers as we understand a different spelling rule each week.  Thank you for your help at home with this.

In PE we have been learning how to play cricket.  So much fun in the playground.
