Sandhopper Class Weekly News

 

Monday 12th October 2020 – Friday 16th October 2020

 

This week we have been finding out about Charles Macintosh. He invented a process that made fabric waterproof- thank goodness! The weather this week has been very wet!

 

Our English has continued to focus on poetry and the children have enjoyed creating their own seaside poems using adjectives, nouns, verbs and adverbs!

 

Alma Woodsey Thomas was an African American artist who used colour and pattern to represent images. Her work has inspired us to create our own masterpieces!

 

                                                         

 

Monday 5th October 2020 – Friday 9th October 2020

 

This week we have been studying poetry and looking at two performance poets in particular- Michael Rosen and Benjamin Zephaniah. We have really enjoyed watching them perform some of their poems.

 

In Geography we have found out the names of the 7 continents and the 5 oceans and in Science we have investigated which coat would be the best for Mrs Middleton to wear in the rain - quite apt given the copious amount we have received recently!

 

Have a (hopefully) dry weekend!

 

 

 

                                                        

 

Monday 28th September 2020 – Friday 2nd October 2020

 

 

We have been very busy writing our stories this week and the Sandhopper team have all been very impressed by the children’s enthusiasm, perseverance and determination to finish their wonderful stories! The children have also practised editing their own work, not only to correct any mistakes but also to think how they might improve their story.

 

In Geography we have looked at Google Earth and zoomed in on an aerial view of our school, in particular the KS1 playground. The children enjoyed making their own maps and adding a key.

 

 

Have a super weekend x

                                                    

 

Monday 21st September 2020 – Friday 25th September 2020

 

Another action packed week in Sandhopper 2!

 

We have enjoyed a music lesson with Mrs ‘Music’ Brown, we have investigated the absorbency of different materials and celebrated our first 7th birthday! 

 

Happy Birthday Freya!

 

Have a lovely weekend!

 

 

                                                        

 

Monday 14th September 2020 – Friday 18th September 2020

 

 

Another action packed week in Sandhopper 2! The weather has been beautiful and we have made the most of it by enjoying some stories outside.


Our Science topic is Everyday Materials and their uses and this week we have carried out an experiment to find out if water can walk! The children were very excited to observe the changes in the experiment over 2 days.

 

Have a super weekend and fingers crossed that the weather continues to be glorious!

 

 

                                                      

 

Monday 7th September 2020 – Friday 11th September 2020

 

What an amazing week we have had in Sandhopper 2! The children have impressed us by settling in to our new routines so quickly and sensibly.

 

Their Year 2 journey is underway!

 

On Monday we had our first PE session with the ASSA team- these will continue until half term out on the Astro.

 

                                                        

 

Thursday 3rd September 2020 – Friday 4th September 2020

 

Welcome back! It was wonderful seeing all the children’s smiling faces and looking very smart. We have really enjoyed seeing the children communicate and support each other during our ‘Learning to Learn’ days and it is great to see our ASPIRE values in action! We have been particularly impressed at how quickly the children have settled into the new routines and are looking forward to a lot of exciting learning this year.
