Caterpillars – Week 3
We’ve had a brilliant time in Caterpillars class this week!
In English we’ve had lots and lots of fun creating our own class story for Traction Man and his brother, Action Man! We’ve been thinking of new adventures the brothers could be having in school and then took lots of photos so we could write about them and improve our descriptive language. Each day, Traction Man has been spotted in a new position in Caterpillars class so see if you can spot him next time you pop in!
In Maths, we have been making our own 3D shapes and exploring angles, parallel and perpendicular lines and identifying shapes in real life. Throughout the week I have been blown away by the children’s understanding of shapes and excellent reasoning skills so well done Caterpillar class!
In Computing, we have been discussing E-Safety and how to stay safe online. We have had lots of healthy and mature conversations about what is appropriate on the internet and what to do when things go wrong. Once more, I am very proud of how respectful, sensitive and understanding the children have been with what can be a very serious subject.
In Science, the Year 3’s have been learning more about rocks through hands on experiments and investigations into how they are formed whilst Year 2 have been exploring UK habitats in the Forest school. Lots of reasoning arising once more in our discussions during these lessons which has been great to see.
Finally in Music, Geography and PE this week we have been exploring our Hawaiian theme by learning some more Hawaiian dance moves and practicing our Ukulele skills! We know can play a C chord and are eager to learn more! We were also ‘visited’ by an Alien who has asked us to create a brochure about Hawaii so the aliens can go there on holiday!
Next week we are looking forward to the Year 3 Gymnastics festival on Wednesday afternoon, Fire Safety talks for Year 2, learning more about our Hawaiian topic and a visit from Reverend Paul who is coming in to discuss the Bible and Christianity further with us and to answer some of our questions.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Joe Skinner and the Year 2 team.
