Week Commencing: 21.11.22

In Class 2/3 this week, the children have planned an exciting story named 'The Fisherman's Supper', inspired by “The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch”. They came up with some excellent ideas which they will use when writing their stories next week. In geography, we have been busy exploring different climate zones and investigating which fruits and vegetables are grown in each of the continents. During Thursday's Jam Coding computing lesson, the children enjoyed using the iPads and laptops to explore representing data in different ways. 

Week Commencing: 14.11.22

It has been another fantastic week in Class 2/3! In English, we have been working hard to master the use of inverted commas to punctuate direct speech. The children had fun developing dialogue for a scene from “The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch”. On Wednesday, the children enjoyed performing a Florence Nightingale themed class assembly to their parents. As part of our 'Food, Glorious, Food' topic, we have been thinking about the benefits of buying Fairtrade products. The children raised some interesting questions and are keen to learn more about where our food comes from. 

Week Commencing: 07.11.22

In Class 2/3 this week, we have started our new geography topic, 'Food, Glorious Food'. The children were keen to explore the journey that different foods go on to get from a farm to our forks. In RE, we have been thinking about the ways in which a child of the light would grow and show the light of Christ to those around them. We also enjoyed creating some Remembrance Day Artwork to honour and remember those who fought and lost their lives in the war. 

Week Commencing: 01.11.22

It has been another fantastic week in Class 2/3! In English, we have started reading “The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch”. Jubilant, concocting, varmints, brazen and ingenious are just a handful of the new words that we have discovered in the story so far. In R.E., we discussed the meanings of the symbols used in the Sacrament of Baptism. The children have been working incredibly hard with their French learning too—it seems to be a popular lesson of the week.

Week Commencing: 17.10.22

Class 2/3 have worked incredibly hard this half term, earning lots of Dojo points for following our school rules of 'Be Ready, Be Respectful, Be Safe'.  Well done, Class 2/3! This week, it's been Art week. Class 2/3 have studied the wonderful work of influential Victorian artist, William Morris.  After practising their sketching skills and techniques, the children are in the process of creating a repeating pattern template using a polystyrene tile to carve their design into followed by applying colourful printing inks. We are looking forward to seeing their final wallpaper prints. 

Week Commencing: 10.10.22

This week, Class 2/3 have continued their French learning about Les Vetements- Clothing. The children had a go at writing their own sentences in French to describe what items of clothing they wear to school. In RE, we have been thinking about the meanings of signs and symbols in our life. As a class, we planned a Collective Worship to reflect upon our previous RE topic of creation. We gathered for our Collective Worship in Forest School. 

Week Commencing: 03.10.22

In science this week, Class 2/3 have had lots of fun using play dough to explore the way in which different materials can change shape. We investigated which everyday materials can and cannot change shape when a force is applied to them. In maths, we are continuing to develop our addition and subtraction skills. On Thursday, we enjoyed an active morning of P.E. with Coach Matt followed by an exciting Jam Coding lesson.

Week Commencing: 26.09.22

Week 4, Wow! Class 2/3 have been busy as always. In history, we have been comparing Victorian Hospitals to modern day hospitals and nursing. In English, the children have each written a super story inspired by 'George's Marvellous Medicine'. On Wednesday, we explored a range of different everyday materials in science and discussed the suitability of these materials for different objects and different purposes. Miss Ollerton is very proud of our improved writing stamina this week. Well done, Class 2/3! 

Week Commencing: 19.09.22

As always, this week has been another busy week in Class 2/3. In maths, we are continuing to look at partitioning numbers in different ways. In English, we have begun planning our own version of 'George's Marvellous Medicine'. We are looking forward to writing our stories next week. On Tuesday, the Lancashire Fire and Rescue team came in to teach us all about fire safety. Miss Ollerton was amazed at how much we already knew about fire safety. We also enjoyed another exciting ukulele lesson and a fantastic Jam Coding computing lesson too! 

Week Commencing 12.09.22

We've had a very busy week in Class 2/3! We have enjoyed learning about the inspirational life of Mary Seacole and the amazing sacrifices that she made to save soldiers during the Crimean War. On Tuesday, we took our Collective Worship outside to Forest School where we reflected upon ways in which we can look after God's creation. We loved our Jam Coding and exciting ukulele lessons too! Miss Ollerton is so proud of our teamwork this week. We have earned lots of Dojo's for helping others. 

Week Commencing: 05.09.22

This week, Class 2/3 have settled into their classroom brilliantly! They have got stuck in with their 'Marvellous Medicine' themed topics. In history, they have enjoyed learning about the life of Florence Nightingale. They were amazed to discover the lifesaving changes that Florence made to hospitals during the Crimean War. In English, they have made predictions about what crazy ingredients could be in George's Marvellous Medicine. On Thursday, they enjoyed their first P.E. lesson with Coach Matt. Miss Ollerton has been very impressed with Class 2/3's lovely manners and positive attitude towards learning this week.
