In English over the next few weeks, Year 2 are exploring 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' by Lauren Child. Some of the children had already heard of Lauren Child as she is the author of the Charlie and Lola books. This book has wonderful illustrations and is a little bit different to the traditional tale we all know. Watch this space for some fantastic work inspired by this text including retellings, wanted posters, letters and more!
Year 2 had a lovely day visiting Chatteris Museum on Monday. They learnt all about the Great Fire of Chatteris and how life has changed over the years.
The museum also has a club for children on a Saturday morning - please see the leaflet below:
The first three weeks of term have flown by. We have all been so busy getting to know each other and establishing the expectations of being in Year 2. We are working hard, we are very eager and are particuarly trying to build up our independence.
In Maths, we have been thinking carefully about place value and in English we have used an amazing book about the Great Fire of London to promote discussion, writing and role play.
Keep it up Hawthorn, Ash and Holly Class!
Below are some of the activities from 2017-2018
Year 2 had a very busy time last week!
On Monday, Elys Dolan, the author and illustrator of the book 'Weasels' came to share her book with us and teach us how to draw our very own weasels!
On Tuesday, Gordon Thorpe from March Museum came to visit us and tell us all about the Soham rail disaster.
On Wednesday morning, we were invited by Mrs Horn to visit Cromwell Academy to take part in some dance and drama sessions. Afterwards we got to play on their huge field, have some juice and two biscuits!
Finally on Wednesday afternoon Quantum Theatre came in and shared a play with us all about habitats and the animals that live there.
Year 2 had a fantastic day at Hamerton Zoo on Friday. They loved seeing all of the animals and learning about where they come from.
During their teaching session the children learnt about how animals are adapted to their habitats. They especially enjoyed meeting Alfie the parrot, Stevie the skunk and holding Oreo the bearded dragon.
The children were very well behaved throughout the day and we even had members of the public comment on their fantastic behaviour!
