We Are Inventors!
The children were fascinated by our delivery for our new topic Can I Switch It On? We investigated the bike and talked about how it works. The children loved learning about what inventions are. We also went into the hall to create our own inventions. Our story for the half term is Mrs Armitage On Wheels. The children thought about what they could add to the bike.
We have loved exploring different traditional tales this half term! We have got to know lots of stories and characters including Goldilocks, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Gingerbread Man and The Three Little Pigs. The children love being storytellers - they are fantastic!
Book Club Friday
Tulips class are loving Book Club Fridays!📚 We are having lots of fun sharing stories with the Year 2 children and reading for pleasure.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
“Somebody’s been sitting in my chair.. and it’s broken!” The children have been investigating what happened in the 3 bear’s cottage, searching for clues and evidence. They thought of their own theories and shared them with their friends. We learnt our story using our story map and have explored the characters.
Easter and Spring
The children really enjoyed looking for signs of Spring time and celebrating Easter. Here are a few things we have been busy doing.
This half term, our topic is How Does a Zebra Get Stripes? We launched our topic with a letter from the zoo explaining an animal had escaped! We explored the clues and predicted which animal it could be. Our Talk for Writing text is Elmer and the children loved learning all about elephants and why it's okay to be different. In order to build ideas to innovate our story, the children came to school dressed as zoo animals! We gathered lots of ideas to change our story of Elmer to a different animal. The children loved being animals for the day!
This week we have been celebrating World Book Day in school. Our novel study and theme for the week was The Wizard of Oz. At the beginning of the week, there was a huge storm and we found something very strange outside! We learned all about the characters in the story and even had a theatre performance of The Wizard of Oz. We have enjoyed reading and listening to our favourite stories. At the end of the week, we dressed up as our favourite book characters. What a fun-filled week of celebrating how much we love reading!
What's in the egg?
Tulips class had a shock when we came back to school to find an egg in our classroom! The children were very excited about their learning and became investigators to find out what we thought was inside. They had some fantastic ideas. At the end of the week, we found our egg had hatched and there were footprints in our classroom! The children worked out that they were dinosaur footprints and have been searching for the missing dinosaur ever since..
