This week 2T have enjoyed learning all about Poland. We have learnt how to say some simple polish words and found out a lot of information about the country itself. We really enjoyed trying different Polish foods, we had a class vote and the dumplings were the overall favourite. We have all made a Polish flag and completed a Polish fact file.
Even though it wasn’t about Poland we enjoyed a Chinese ribbon workshop earlier on in the week and we even performed a dance.
Today we enjoyed getting dressed up and representing our countries. At the end of the day we had a parade around the school. What a fun week we have had!
On Thursday 2T had a fantastic time visiting the seaside town of Whitstable. We were very lucky with the weather and the sun shone for most of the day. We saw so many exciting things. We started the day off with a slow walk alongside the harbour where we saw lots of fishing nets and fishing boats. We stopped at the fish market and had a look at all the fresh seafood for sale. We walked past the lifeboat station and saw a collection of small sailing boats. We ended up on the beach where we ate lunch. After lunch, the tide was out, so we got to explore the beach even further. We found shells, crabs, oysters amongst other things.
After Easter, we will be looking at TRADITIONAL TALES!
What is your favourite traditional tale? How many do you know? Over the Easter break, your task is to read as many traditional tales as you can. Think about who your favourite characters are and why. When we return to school we will be sharing our ideas.
This term our topic has been ‘Toys’. We have spent lots of time discussing and looking at old and new toys. Recently the children in 2T have worked really hard in English and DT in order to create a Jumping Jack, Spinner and and a non-fiction instruction book to go with the Jumping Jack.
This morning we set up the classroom like a toy museum. We carefully placed our items out on the tables and then enjoyed looking at each others books and toys. It gave us the opportunity to find out what each other had made and look at each others toys.
This week will be the last week that we post your home learning on the blog. From next week we will putting your home learning onto Microsoft Teams.
If you have not yet downloaded Teams onto a computer at home or are having difficulty then please speak to Mr Morris, our assistant headteacher.
When you open up teams and go into your class group, there will be a channel on the left hand side that says ‘home learning’. This is where you will find your homework.
Don’t forget we give you new maths homework on My Maths every week for you to try at home and you can always log in to Bug Club to practise your reading.
Back to this week.
We have been learning about adjectives and similes. Look at the powerpoint to remind yourself what a simile is and then have a go at completing the worksheet. If you can’t print out the worksheet then you could try writing some of your own down.
This morning Year Two enjoyed a visit from some staff that work in the Horniman Museum. They brought along with them lots of different types of toys for the children to look at and play with.
The children have been learning about toys this term and this workshop enhanced the children’s learning even more. We looked at different toys from around the world, we discussed the materials they had been made from and how the toys are played with.
