Welcome to the last blog of the academic year for Tigers! They have been amazing students and I'm sure they will continue to shine in year 3.

Tigers have had a wonderful start to the week with Sports day. We met the inspiring athlete Ezekiel Ewulo who put us through our paces with a short workout at the start of the day. We had an amazing time and learnt so much about diet and training to be an athlete. A huge well done to all our amazing students for participating in the scorching weather for sports day. Also, a huge thank you to parents who came to support on the day. 

We had a wonderful treat during the week with the Rock Steady concert. Well done to Ethan, Isla, Dylan and Caitlyn who showed off their wonderful talents in their different bands.

In English we have continued with our instructional writing and started to structure and plan our own writing on how to make a rocket. We have looked at all the key features of writing instructions and our model text on how to build a castle to support our writing.

In maths we have been revising measures and looked at telling the time and adding money. We have used money resources to make different amounts of money and used part- models to represent the different amounts of money.

In PHSE we created a timeline of our lives so far for our topic on growing and changing.

In RE we created a set of instructions on how to make a samosa which made us very hungry as they looked so delicious! This was part of our topic on Hinduism and Hindu food.

In Science we have identified the trees in our environment when we became leaf detectives! We compared the sizes of the trees and observed the similarities and differences between the different trees. It was great fun to discover the different patterns of the bark when we did some  bark rubbing.

I hope you all have a lovely summer!

 I am excited to be working with Tigers class until the end of term whilst Miss Dudley- Thomas has started her maternity leave after the birth of the wonderful baby Theo.

Tigers class have a had a wonderful week of learning as they started off their week with two transition days with their new teacher. They thoroughly enjoyed their time with Miss Sanders in the Year 3 classroom and it's clear that they can't wait to start Year 3! 

This week in maths we have been continuing to look at measures with time and money topics. 

In English we have continued with our topic of instructions and looked at interesting vocabulary in preparation for our writing.

In art we have completed our drawings of plants and went onto start still life drawings and adding details to those drawings. Children did an amazing job and we clearly have some budding artists in Tiger's class!

In PHSE we discovered how much we've grown. We estimated our heights and then measured ourselves to compare with all the children in class.

In Reading we have continued with our book 'The fantastic Mr. Fox' which is a thoroughly enjoyable read.

In Science we have explored trees in our environment and discovered how tall they can grow. 

In computing we have continued with our topic on programming using the Sprite resource. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

This week we have been reading the book 'Fantastic Mr Fox' by Roald Dahl. We have be answering questions about the first 3 chapters and asking meaningful questions to help us further understand the text. 

We have also been completing our 'Meeting Tale' stories. We are almost ready to hot write and share our creations. 

In Maths we are learning about measurement. We have been problem solving questions about mass in grams and Kilograms. Next week we are going to move on to Capacity. Over the weekend see if you can find any bottles in your house and put them in order of size. Can you tell which bottle has the largest capacity? How do you know? If the bottle is not full then what is the volume inside the bottle? 

 

Out of this world trip!

Year 2 travelled to Leicester on Thursday to experience the Space Centre. They learned about the incredible discoveries that have been made by mankind in Space.
