We have all settled well into Owl Class with Miss Lloyd. This term we have Mrs Foxwell, Ms Sharif, Mrs Hopkinson-Hassell and Mrs Hutchings working with us. We are also very lucky to have Miss Macey who helps us practise our reading.
Our topic started with a set of footprints leading into a cupboard in our classroom. The police had been in and discovered we had a strange creature living in our classroom.
When the creature left it gave us a story map and book of the story "Where The Wild Things Are". We also had a challenge to find out about different materials in order to build a shelter for Max. We had to test whether materials were strong, waterproof, opaque or transparent so we could choose what to build the shelter out of.
This term we have enjoyed a whole school trip to Westonbirt Arboretum. We walked across the treetop walkway and made dens using materials from the forest. After lunch we enjoyed finding out facts and information about different trees from a Forest Ranger.
In Year 2 we have key word spellings sent home to practise and reading books to share at home. It’s really important that we remember to practise our reading every day at home.
