Hello Tigers! smiley

How are you all? I hope you and your grown ups are all ok and staying safe and well.

Just a little note to say I'm really missing you all and can't wait for us all to be back in Class 7 together again.

There are some new learning tasks below for you to complete at home, some fun activities based on our new topic and some well-being activities to help you all relax and have fun too. I have also added some extra maths challenge problems to really get you thinking!

It has been so lovely to chat to so many of you on the phone and all of your grown ups say you are doing so well at home, working hard and being really sensible about this strange situation we are in, as well as having lots of fun and learning new skills. We are all incredibly proud of you and you should be very proud of yourselves too! 

Stay safe, look after yourselves and hope to see you soon.

Lots of love heart and hugs

Welcome to Class 7 - Terrific Tigers

 

We are the Terrific Tigers and we are very excited to be in Year 2.  Our teacher is Mrs Yates and we have help each week from Mrs Palmer, Mrs Hamm and Mrs Robey.

We do P.E on a Wednesday morning and a Thursday afternoon when we also try to visit the library. Our homework and spellings are due in on a Friday each week.

Autumn 1 2019

 

Last term our topic was 'Me, Myself and I'.  We learnt all about being healthy and how to look after our bodies. Did you know that we should eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables every day, do 1 hour of exercise and get 10 hours of sleep each night?

Amazing Maths! We did some super maths last half term. First, we learned all about the tens and ones in 2 digit numbers. We practised making 2 digit numbers in lots of different ways. Then, we used tens and ones to help us to add two digit numbers.

We did some work with 2D shapes. We sorted them in different ways and we played a game where we had to describe their properties using the correct maths vocabulary, including how many sides, corners and lines of symmetry they have. Did you know that a rectangle has 4 straight sides, 2 lines of symmetry and 4 vertices?

Autumn 2 2019

 

We have a new topic this term and we're very excited about this one!! It is.....

 

CHOCOLATE!

On the first day back after the holidays, Mrs Yates asked us this question... 'What maths can you do with a tube of Smarties?' Well, we sorted them, counted them, used them for adding and taking away, made graphs, created 2D shapes. We were amazed to find that Smarties are great for helping with our maths!

Remembrance Day 2019

 

We made special boats for an exhibition at the National Memorial Arboretum to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.  Our painted boats will make up part of a special tribute to the almost 7000 vessels and 156,000 troops who sailed to the beaches of Normandy on 6th June 1944.  We decorated our boats with poppies and camouflage designs.  At the Arboretum they will be added to the other boats in the exhibition to make a total of 6939 wooden vessels - 1 for each of the ships which sailed that day. 

Happy Christmas! Look at all our beautiful tree decorations...

Spring 1 2020

 

Our new topic is 'London's Burning!' We will be learning all about the Great Fire of London including what London was like in 1666 and how it was different from London now, where and how the fire started and why it spread so quickly.

We had fun making treasure maps on the maths open morning. We were very good at writing directions using different vocabulary like right, left, clockwise, anti-clockwise, North, South, East and West.

P.E In PE this term we have been doing fencing and archery with Christian. We have had lots of fun and learnt some new skills!

In March we had eggs and an incubator delivered from Living Eggs. We only had 3 chicks hatch this year, but they were very cute and we loved stroking them and watching them run around.

World of Work Week

 

Our World of Work Week in March was really interesting and informative. We were very lucky to have lots of visitors who came to talk to us about where they work and what they do. We asked lots of questions and found out about a range of different jobs. A big thank you to all the grown up who came in to speak to us! 

In English, we are going to learn how to write a non-chronological report. We had to be detectives and examine lots of evidence to help us find out more about dragons so that we can write a report about them.
