Pirate stories!

Nora the cabin girl has sent us a book all about her that is called 'Mungo and the Picture Book Pirates!'  We have loved reading it so much that we are mapping the story out in pictures and then we will write our own stories.  We worked really well in teams to create our story maps then we told the story to the class using the pictures.

Lost Keys!

We received a poster for some missing keys and so we went exploring the school grounds to see if we could find them.  The keys were described as large, old and rusty.  After searching everywhere we eventually found some very large, rusty, old keys on the Key Stage 2 playground.  We think the keys might belong to pirates so we have written them a letter to find out!

Maths Week

Year 1 and Year 2 have had a very exciting morning with the founder of "Number Fun", Dave Godfrey. Our whole school maths week started with a Key stage 1 workshop, where the childen sang songs, used large numicon pieces and tested out their reasoning skills. A super morning and well done everybody.

Fire service visit!

The fire service visited Year 2 this morning and talked to us about what firefighting is like today.  We compared it to firefighting in 1666 (the time of The Great Fire of London).  Elissa got to try on the special firefighting clothes which fitted perfectly!  We then all went outside to look at the fire engine equipment and we even got to blast the fire hose!

A request from the Queen!

We have received a letter from the Queen asking us to research about The Great Fire of London and report back what we find out. We have thought of research questions and have used books as well as the internet to do research. We have started to make information books that we will send to the Queen. Ask Year 2 some facts about what happened!

Fire, fire!

Last week Year 2 started their new topic of 'Fire'. We have been ordering the story of The Gunpowder Plot and learning about how to keep safe on Bonfire Night. We created bonfire safety posters and bonfire collages. We have also written some bonfire poetry using our five senses.

Story Sharing!

Year 2 have been sharing their Star stories with Year 1 this morning. Year 2 were very proud of all their hard work and Year 1 listened fantastically to the stories.

Football Super Stars!

Year 2 have been working hard this morning on their football skills. They have impressed Jess from Manchester United Foundation with their team work and movement skills. Well done Year 2!

Twinkle, Twinkle

Year 2 have written amazing poems about the missing star! They used Twinkle, Twinkle for inspiration and then thought of some lovely adjectives to describe the star. We have created a Space display in our classroom with all of the fantastic poems and super space paintings.

Welcome to Year 2 - The Star Hunt!

Year 2 have been enjoying their new Space topic. We heard a report that a star had fallen in Dukinfield so we went to investigate. The children found a possible landing site on the school field and have been busy writing newspaper reports!
