Well, what a fabulous couple of days we've had, finishing with a fun-filled trip to the beach. Over these two days, we have reviewed our learning of using blank number lines, completed grammar activities to make our writing better, and drawn detailed butterfly pictures. Then, we finished this half term off with our beach trip, which was lots of fun! We began by visiting Ness Point - the most Easterly point in Britain - where a few of us almost got wet! Then we went on to have a picnic lunch opposite Claremont Pier, and enjoyed some time on the beach having sandcastle competitions and playing ball games. It all ended with a scrumptious ice-cream! Thanks so much to those parents who helped us out, although we're not sure who was having more fun! 

 

Have a great half term and see you all on 6th June!

Photos from our beach trip!

A huge well done to all the children in Celandine this week as they have really tried their hardest in their SATs tests. We couldn't be prouder of the effort they put in. In the afternoons we have been observing our butterflies (who we released yesterday - see video and photos below), we have completed some spoken language activities involving drama, and we have completed a maths-themed treasure hunt!

This week the children have been recalling their previous learning throughout the year in order to get them prepared for their tests next week.

Another busy week has been had in Celandine, with the children learning how to write interesting letters about crazy events of their choosing in English, and reviewing their knowledge on addition and subtraction in Maths. We completed our Maths learning with a shopping experience - each child was given 50p and in pairs they had to choose two items to buy, work out if they could afford them, and calculate how much change they would be given. All of the children did brilliantly with this task, and they especially loved the fact that they could keep what they bought!

In other subjects, we were learning about multiplication and division in Maths, different sentence types in English, about Christian celebrations (in particular Easter) in RE, and drawing in the style of Paul Klee in Art.

In maths we have been learning about adding and subtracting two digit numbers, in English we have been writing adventure stories, and in Design Technology we have been trying various different fruits that some of the children had never tried before. A quote from Jodie-Rose was "I've tried 4 new fruits today, and I liked most of them!"

A huge thank you to everyone who was able to come to the KS1 SATs talk on 14th January, we hope you found it useful and now have more of an insight into what the SATs involve. For those of you who were not able to make it, we have sent home individual packs full of information for you to read, including detailed information on what the SATs are, example questions for the different papers your child will have to sit, different vocabulary your child will need to know (including a spellings list), and a reading questioning sheet which will provide you with prompts when reading with your child to build on their comprehension. If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitiate to get in touch.

Top tip: Although the top of the spelling sheets asks if your child can read certain words, test them on their spelling of them too as they may be able to read them, but spelling is a different matter!

Welcome back to Grove and I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break. Although only a short week, the children have settled back into Celandine very well after their holidays and already we have been learning about comparing numbers in Maths, writing poems in a Kennings style in English, and experimenting with different musical instruments in Music and Design Technology.

This week at Grove has been assessment week, and all of the children really tried their best and learnt what it means to do a test "under test conditions"! The tests are currently being assessed and the results will allow the teaching next term to fill in any gaps that have been highlighted. As a fun end to a busy week, we went to the Water Cycle concert which we had been practising for earlier this term, and the children appeared to thoroughly enjoy themselves (and they enjoyed seeing their teacher get picked to go on stage!). Photos shall be posted soon, but it was a great event and all of the children took part and showed great behaviour during the outing.

This week in Celandine we have been learning about partitioning and ordering numbers in Maths, all about Allan Ahlberg in English, how to create collages in Art, South African music in our Music sessions, and much more! It has been a busy week but the children have really settled in well to Year 2 learning. 

 

Our Star of the Week goes to Jodie-Rose Mitchell for always being ready to learn new things and trying her best. Our Wonderful Work goes to James Stitson for doing some great independent maths work. Well done to you both!

 

Well done also goes to our 10/10 spellers! Zach Gwalter, Lacie Foskett-Smith, Jodie-Rose Mitchell, Poppy Collins, Eleanor Bullard, Aya Bendaoud and Cerys Hale. Keep up the good work! 

Design Technology

 

This half term our DT topic is paper weaving, and already Celandine have been busy learning about the different techniques they need to use and the patterns they can make. The whole class worked really hard on this task, and here are some examples of their work:

Celandine class have had a great first few days and everyone has settled in brilliantly, getting used to the new routines of being in Year 2. 

 

Our Star of the Week is Eleanor Bullard for always being eager and ready for learning, and our Wonderful Work of the week award goes to Casey Branch for doing some great partitioning in our Maths lessons. Well done to you both!
