Autumn term's special interest week is all about newspapers. The whole school will be producing a school newspaper to sell and hopefully make a profit on for charity. Year's 2 will be creating 2 pages for the paper all linked around food. During the week, we have been learning to interview, looking at features of newspapers, looked at healthy breakfasts and reported on this in Science, interviewed the school cook and will attend the Cuerden Café in the hope of advertising their next event. We will also be writing a recipe to go in the paper.
What a bust start to the term! We have been enjoying reading Alice in Wonderland and completing lots of tasks linked to the text. In Year 2 we love to read so you should have noticed that we read every day with every child. Sometimes we will read 2 or 3 times on top of the reading we do in English. In Science, we have been sorting and classifying materials and designing hats with certain qualities. The children have all designed an Alice in Wonderland puppet and we'll start to sew them next week. In Maths, we have done lots of place value work to help children understand the value of numbers. We've built numbers with tens and units and used this knowledge to help us double and halve numbers. We're also trying to learn 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables off by heart.
Welcome to 'Wonderland'
Our new topic will be based on fantasy stories and Alice in Wonderland in particular. As part of our theme, we will be investigating materials for the Mad Hatter, planning and throwing a tea party, learning how to tell the time and making puppets, as well as undertaking many other exciting adventures. Keep checking our class webpage to see what we've been getting up to.
