Welcome to Year 2
Welcome to year 2
Our class teacher is Miss Hulbert.
Our teaching assistant is Mrs Walsh.
We have 22 delightful, hard working, well behaved and fun loving children.
We have a class puppet called Alfie too who is very excited about coming home with us.
In Year 2 we also have Give Up Gerald the giraffe who always gives up and Work It Out Whizz who always tries his best and learns from his mistakes. We all want to be like Work It Out Whizz!
Here is a picture of us learning to be like Work It our Whizz. Look at our happy faces.
We thought about how to be a really good friend and wrote friendship rules for our class.
Our topic this half term is Lets Explore. We answered the question: What would Explorer Bear find interesting around our school? We also used directional language like next to and opposite and used compasses to find north, east, south and west.
We worked together to understand place value of numbers.
In phonics lessons we have been learning alternative spellings of phonemes. In week two we were learning the ee sound so we decided to interview a tree. We got some rather unusual answers to our questions. The tree told the children that during it's lifetime it had, amongst other things, been reading with a chimpanzee and leaping on a trampolene. In the future the tree would like to meet the Queen.
We enjoyed our first music lesson in Year 2.
