MRS WEST AND MRS HOLMES SAY WELCOME TO TORNADO AND TYPHOON CLASSES.
Year 2 Tornado and Typhoon Classes
Welcome back to Term 2.
Yesterday the Typhoons learnt a traditional Bonfire Poem and our new classmate taught us some actions he had been shown at his previous school. Here is a video of us performing the poem.
Year 2- Tornado and typhoon classes
Welcome to the Tornado and Typhoon classes. It is lovely to see you all back at school and we are really looking forward to our learning together this year.
The Tornado class teacher is Mrs West and Mrs Wingfield and Mrs Bartlett support the Tornados with their learning.
The Typhoon class teacher is Mrs Holmes and Mrs Hart supports the Typhoons with their learning.
We use a home learning grid in Year 2. There are three regular literacy and numeracy tasks for each week which are: reading to an adult, practicing spellings and counting. In addition there is a choice of one activity from the grid each week. These are related to our current learning. Homework should be returned by Thursday each week.
Tornado PE lessons are on Monday and Wednesday.
Typhoon PE lessons are on Monday and Friday.
We have had a very busy term discovering the properties of different materials, building fire engines and finding out about London. We have really enjoyed writing letters to Paddington and to celebrate our amazing writing we will be enjoying marmalade sandwiches and watching the Paddington film at the end of the last week of this term.
Tornado Class's special visitor
Some of you may have spotted a special visitor when dropping your children off this morning. Paddington made the long journey from London to visit our class and taught them how to make his favourite snack...marmalade sandwiches! We made sandwiches and tucked into our tasty snacks just before play time. We were then able to write a class set of instructions for how to make marmalade sandwiches - please ask your children about these as I'm sure they will be excited to share them with you. Paddington had a lovely time visiting the children, although he wasn't very impressed with being left with the crust for his sandwiches!! We are hoping he will come back and visit soon as we have had a lovely day
Today we have been exploring wheels and axles in preparation for building our fire engines..
This week we have been learning about London and how it looked now and in the 17th Century. Here are some of our home learning models of current landmarks.
We have made a great start to our learning. Here are some of the Typhoons exploring materials to investigate their properties.
