Our learning so far in 2022…

This week we have finally written our film reviews about Paw Patrol after going to the cinema in November to watch it! Here are a few great examples of what the children said.

Next week we begin our new unit about traditional tales.

We have also started our new learning about Data. We have been able to collect information using a tally chart and today we created a pictogram about the colours in a bag of skittles!

Next week we are creating block diagrams and answering questions about data.

We also named our gluesticks today in hope that we look after them as best of we can! Bill, Fred, Ron, Stan and Trevor are all relaxed now ready for the weekend!

 

Have a lovely weekend,

Our visit to Earlsdon Retirement Village

We had a lovely afternoon spending time with the residents at Earlsdon Retirement Village today. We played games, read with them and asked them questions that we came up with as a class. They really enjoyed it too!

Some children then went and planted in their greenhouse! We will go back in the summer to see how they have grown!

Finally we wowed them with our amazing singing voices! We sang a mixture of songs and the children did brilliantly! Miss Clarke was so proud.

Dear parents,

As we are going to Earlsdon Retirement Village on Wednesday 10th November, as part of the risk assessment we require children to do a Lateral Flow Test on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning if possible to ensure we are adhering to COVID-19 procedures to protect the vulnerable residents of the retirement village.

Many thanks for your cooperation in this,

Year 2 have raised an impressive £88.91 for Zoe’s Place today! A massive thank you to Aurora and her mummy for making some tasty biscuits for us too!

Year 2 updates

Dear parents,

1. On Friday 5th November we will be dressing up in our pyjamas to raise money for Zoe’s Place. The children discussed amounts for them to bring in for this and we decided on £2, however if they feel like they would like to donate more they can. Please could you send them to school with an appropriate coat and footwear for break and lunch time.. The children can also bring in a small teddy if they would like.

2. On the afternoon of Wednesday 10th November the children will be visiting Earlsdon Retirement Village to play games with the residents, read to them, ask them questions as well as performing 3 songs which we have been practicing in class. These are:

When I’m 64 by The Beatles

We’ll Meet Again by Vera Lynn

When I Grow Up by the cast of Matilda

I have sent home lyrics for these songs and would really appreciate some time spent with the children practicing these at home too.

As well as this, the retirement village have asked for us to support them in their recycling by bringing empty crisp packets, toothpaste tubes, toothbrushes, pens and bread bags with us so please do send these into school as and when you have any.

Thanks for your support!

Fundraising for Zoe’s Place

Dear parents/ carers

As a class we have decided that the first charity we would like to support is Zoe’s Place in Coventry. On Friday 5th November the children will dress up in pyjamas to raise money for the wonderful work they do for poorly children. We discussed how much the children think they should donate and they have decided on £2, however if they wanted to bring in more that would be fabulous! I have said that they can wear slippers in class however they need another pair of shoes/ coat for outside. I have arranged for a volunteer at Zoe’s Place to discuss what the money they bring in will be going towards to help to support families and children via a Zoom this Friday.

Many thanks for your cooperation in this and your continued support,

Miss Clarke

Year 2 trip to the Transport Museum

Year 2 had a good day on Friday at the Transport Museum.

First we did some activities where we compared bikes throughout time, looked at the structure of a bike and what makes it safe, had a go on a scooter with rubber wheels and with wooden wheels and then did a science experiment where we found out that rubber stops quicker than metal which is why they are good on tyres!

Then we walked around the museum and had a look at the different cars, bikes, buses and taxis!

Then we had some chilled time drawing some bikes!
