After two months of home learning, it was such an amazing day on Monday to welcome the super Sparrow class back to the Year 2 classroom. Sparrow Class have returned to school full of enthusiasm and have been fantastic ambassadors of the schools 3R's, modelling them at every opportunity.
We will update you with what Sparrow Class have been up to below. Check regularly to see our updates.
Welcome back Sparrow Class!
Week commencing 29th March
This week the children have been busy completing assessments in maths, reading and SPaG. The children have all worked extremely hard and to celebrate we enjoyed hot chocolate served with marshmallows and biscuits as a treat – Yum!
We enjoyed another week of learning about 2D and 3D shapes.
Using our learning from last week, many of us returned to school this week sharing our findings of 2D and 3D shapes in our homes and in the local environment.
Using different categories, in groups we sorted 3D shapes. We used shape vocabulary to discuss the sorting methods, for example - faces, shapes of faces, edges, vertices, if they roll, if they stack…
Week commencing 8th March
What an unusual start to the week! – on Tuesday we received an unexpected letter from Mrs Bayliss, asking us to solve a riddle she had received. We used our inference skills to help solve the riddle, to answer the question - Where am I? After lots of discussion and reasoning we decided to explore the Marsh. So off we went to see what we could find…
When we arrived in the Marsh, we looked for the canopy mentioned in the riddle. We couldn’t believe our eyes, under the canopy were lots of candles and a beautifully wrapped parcel addressed to ‘Sparrow Class’. We were so excited!
We returned to our classroom and opened the parcel... to find our new text for English – Space Tortoise by Ross Montgomery. Sitting in front of the fire, in our dimly lit room, the flickering candles providing us with our only source of light we listened to Mrs James read Space Tortoise.
Thank you, Mrs Bayliss, for sending us the riddle to solve.
We’ve had lots of fun exploring 2D and 3D shapes.
In groups we sorted shapes into 2-D and 3-D shapes and matched them to their name. We went on a shape hunt around the school to identify different shapes and created a tally of the shapes we saw.
