Hello and welcome to the 2nd half of the Autumn term.
We have had a very exciting start to our Jurassic Park topic. On the first day back at school a discovery was made in the school playground!
This caused much excitement across the school as you can imagine and provided a great 'hook' for our writing and topic work. We started off by creating a time line of the Mesozoic Era (ask the children, they can tell you all about it!). We then learnt all about Mary Anning, the famous palaeontologist (fossil collector. The children have learnt all about her life and produced some wonderful written work.
Then on Wednesday something really exciting happened! We received a visit from Milly the dinosaur. It was fantastic and the children were very brave!
Hello and welcome to 2TV.
The children have made a fabulous start to year 2. They have quickly settled to the routines of the day and their own unique little personalities are beginning to shine through!
To help us settle and become more independent in our play and in our learning we have been learning about Kelso's Choices. Kelso helps us to decide if it is a small problem or a big problem that we may be faced with and gives us some strategies and choices to help resolve the problem. The children have responded really well to this. You can watch a short film about Kelso on the following link:
See Kelso's Choice in Action! Short, true-to-life vignettes help students see how kids just like them use Kelso's Choices to solve everyday problems.
2TV have had their first swimming session. It was lovely to see the children rising to the challenge and, for some, facing their fears. They were a credit to the school.
Thank you for your continued support with listening to your children read at home. Our class is quite motivated to beat the other year 2 classes and reach the sun first in our reading challenge. Just a little reminder that children need to read 4 times at home during the week and once at a weekend to receive 5 ticks!
