We had a fantastic beach trip this week! We measured and estimated using centimetres and metres. In class we were even measuring with decimetre strips! How lucky are we to be able to do our Maths on the beach? In Science we were thinking about the human lifecycle and the skills we have now as 6 and 7 year olds compared to when we were babies. Baby Freya and her mummy came to visit us so we could see what she could do and ask lots of questions. She loved her time in Lobster Class!
Enjoy a very happy half term everyone!

This week all of Year 2 were lucky enough to work together in the hall using music and movement to inspire their creative writing. They found different musical instruments for the different parts of their Egyptian story and came up with lots of fantastic adjectives to use in their writing next week. We also had a double birthday this week and enjoyed our Geography lesson on Egypt too!
Monday 2nd October - Friday 6th October 2017
This week in Literacy we have been using our 5 part story frame and 'Peace at Last' to help us write our own stories. Each day we have written a part of our story as emergent writers trying to use lots of descriptive language and WOW words.
Look at the fantastic Nile we set up in Geography, we followed the journey of a little boat sailing along the river. Can you remember what we saw?

This week in English we have been improving our sentences to make them more exciting. There were some fantastic sentences! In P.E and Science we have been learning about the effects of exercise on our bodies. We could feel our hearts beating faster pumping the blood around our bodies. What clever bodies we have!
We thought you might like to see our finished jean art too! Thanks for everyone's donations.
Monday 18th September – Friday 22nd September 2017
We have had lots of fun in Maths this week! We used pegs and coat hangers to practise our number bonds and used Sid the spider on 'splat square' to count on and back in 10's.
Our still life sketches of fruit and vegetables were fantastic and this week we are going to use some watercolours. Have a lovely weekend everyone!
We enjoyed looking at and discussing the different food groups in Science this week. We had a big picnic (with pretend food!!) and had to put all of our food into the right groups. Can you remember the different groups? We just wanted to share our lovely lobsters too. We have had lots of comments on fantastic they look round the entrance to our classroom.
Wow what a busy first week in Lobster Class! We spent the first few days thinking about ASPIRE and our school rules. We wrote about the Summer holidays, completed some addition, subtraction and some Lobster art! We even celebrated a birthday! I think we all need a rest over the weekend!
