2017/2018 Class Two
We have been looking at the book Awful Auntie in English and we will be using it to inspire our own writing about an awful character. Keep an eye out for all of our amazing work on the hilarious book!
Last week we were focusing on describing settings from Awful Auntie. We decided to try and sell Saxby Hall by describing it in a persuasive way. First we did some drama in groups to create a TV advert to sell Saxby Hall. Then we used these ideas to write a descriptive paragraph.
We have been very lucky in Class 2 and have had someone come to do some dance lessons to improve our skills. Take a look at us in action!
Here is an example of our drama. We were performing tricks on each other as the Twits. WE then used this to inspire our writing on writing our own nasty trick.
This week in English we have been looking at the text 'The Twits' by Roald Dahl. We were exploring the characters of Mr and Mrs Twit and to develop their understanding the children pretended to be the characters. See below for the children's best Twits impressions!
In maths we have been looking at different ways to represent 3 digit numbers. We have been very practical in our approach and used diennes, arrow cards and counters this week to deepen our understanding.
Our theme this term in collective worship is thankfulness. To explore this in our class assembly this week we created an acrostic poem, as a class, about the people and things we should be thankful for.
A big welcome to the new Class 2! All of the teachers in Class 2 hope that everyone had had a fantastic summer but we're sure that all of the children are now back feeling refreshed and ready for some super learning! We have had a great first few days back and we cannot wait to see what this year has to bring.
P.S. Over the summer holidays your class teacher got married! So just in case there is any confusion Miss Knowles is now known as Mrs Coleman.
2016/2017 Class Two
We had a fantastic day for the homework reward trip to Markeaton Park last week. Well done to all of the children who completed their homework and were able to go on the trip. Their behavior was impeccable and we are very proud of them all. Hopefully those that were not able to attend will manage to meet the criteria next year and won't be missing out!
We really enjoyed the celebrations on Friday and hope that those of you that joined us did too! Here are some pictures of the fun we had and our work proudly on display.
We have had great fun designing and making our models of the school in Class 2. I think you'll agree that the children have definitely been creative with their models and we are proud of them all!
We have started to make our models of the school building. They are now beginning to take shape and we can't wait to show off our finished projects at the the century celebrations!
This week we introduced our new topic, celebrating Woodville schools building being 100 years old. In year three we will be looking at how our school has changed and developed over the past 100 years.
Part of our work will include making a 3D model of the school building. We have asked the children to bring lots of different cardboard boxes of varying sizes to help us. A lot of the children have also designed their models to have chimneys therefore kitchen roll tubes etc. would also be appreciated.
Hopefully we'll have some lovely 3D models to show off to you for our centenary celebration day!
Thank you for your support.
Conkers crazy! All of class 2 had a brilliant time at Conkers. Their behaviour was excellent and we learnt even more about seed dispersal for our plants topic. Here are some pictures of our super trip!
Right angle monsters! We have been investigating angles so made our own right angle monsters to see how many right angles we could find (some unusual angles were found)!
Well done to all of the children for completing their homework last week. We have had some fantastic plant art work in which is now proudly displayed in the classroom.
Sunflower update! Some of our sunflowers are starting to sprout, some more than others though. Hopefully by the end of term they will all have started to grow.
Thank you to all of our parents and grandparents who joined us on our recent open afternoon. It was lovely to share our learning on plants with you.
We have been planting sunflowers this week and we're going to have a competition to see who's sunflower will grow the tallest! Also don't forget your homework this week! I want lots of lovely and interesting pictures of flowers and plants to go up on display.
This week in English we have been learning about the myth Theseus and the Minotaur. Here are some pictures of our superb acting skills!
All of class 2 thoroughly enjoyed our Roman topic last term. We especially enjoyed making some fantastic chariots and meeting a real life Roman soldier during our Roman day!
