Caterpillars – Week 3

Another lovely week in Caterpillars class!

We’ve had lots of active fun in PE using the apparatus and taking part in a football workshop with Mark on Thursday. We’ve learnt lots about kicking a football with the six different areas of our feet and can’t wait to learn more in the following workshops to come this term!

In English, we’ve been getting to grips with the terminology for Years 2 and 3 and learning more about different types of conjunctions (e.g. and, because) and using adjectives to describe in noun phrases.

In Maths we have been exploring numbers further and learning more about adding and taking away 10 or 100! Brilliant explanations of how the numbers are changing from all and great pictures to help us understand how the amounts change as well.

In Science we have been learning about the different types of skeletons and were very lucky to have been visited by Mr Bones (As lovingly named by Caterpillars class!) Can I also say a big thank you to Charlie and family for bringing in ‘Billy Bones,’ Mr Bones young son! The children thoroughly enjoyed exploring how bones work and how there are different types in the animal kingdom.

To follow up on our Science work, we also had a visit from Chantelle for our Gardening workshop where we learnt more about caterpillars (because it’s our class name of course!) and how they pupated before turning into butterflies. We also have our very own caterpillars to take home (me included!) so I hope you all enjoy your new pets!


In Computing we have discussed how to be safe online and how we are going to be using our new tablet computers safely and sensibly. Sadly we ran out of time to fully explore this week due to our Football workshop but next week we are raring to go and explore how our new gadgets work!

Next week we are looking forward to exploring how our organs all work together in Science, writing our own versions of No Bot, learning more about sequencing numbers and working on our new tablet computers.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Best wishes,

Joe Skinner and the Year 2/3 team.
