Our Year 2 and 3 class is called Squirrels
I hope you all had a super half term keeping safe. We are now in our final term of this school year and hopefully the last few weeks of our unusual way of receiving and doing our learning.

I have sent out links so that you can listen to further chapters of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. You may wish to just listen rather than watch because the sound and filming do not match up which I find very distracting! I will try to find out why this is happening and sort this problem out!
Some of the learning you have been doing at home. Well done everyone!

More pictures of what you have been doing at home.
Thank you to all of you that joined in the meeting and those of you that have sent pictures of what you have been doing at home.
Usually we have an Easter bonnet and Easter garden competition at this time in the term. I thought you might like to make these at home and send photos in that I can share on our Squirrels page. Maybe you could make Easter cakes and send a photo in?
Please continue to use the links below from 23rd and 30th March. Also continue to look at the Noticeboard on the homepage where Miss Priestley will add other links and ideas. The Care homes have been delighted to receive our letters and these are cheering the residents up when they can’t have visitors so keep up the letter writing!
Please all have a happy, safe Easter!
Home learning from 30th March
Please continue to use the links from 23rd March and look at the Noticeboard on the homepage of our website.
Please make sure you can say the alphabet in order, know the names of all the letters as well as the sounds they make and recognise all lower case and upper case letters.
Maybe you could learn to tie your shoelaces – a really useful life skill to learn.
If you can please write to a care home. The residents have loved receiving the letters and pictures from us. The addresses are in the link below:

Spring Term 2020
Our topic this term is Wonderful World. Please see topic plan below.
World Book Day
We all dressed up as our favourite book character.
Then we looked at the book The Lost Words. We chose our own creatures or plants from nature and, based on the book, wrote our own poems. After that we did our own illustrations for our poem.
In English we have done some hot-seating. We were reporters interviewing someone who had seen an alien landing!
This year we counted the different coloured sweets in a packet and made graphs to show how many they were. We also made tessellations. We had a small square that we cut across the middle and reassembled by putting the straight sides together. We then repeated this to make a shape which we drew round to make the pattern.
We have been learning about 2d and 3d shapes. We made 3d shapes out of straws and playdough.
This term we have been learning to do gymnastics
Autumn Term 2019
Our topic this term is Here be Dragons! Please see the topic plan below.
We designed our own Christmas plates.
We made our own hanging decorations for the Christmas tree. First we had to find the best way to join fabric together – we all agreed that we would need to sew! After designing our decorations we used blanket stitch to sew them together.
We made magic calendars to make home!
We made Christmas biscuits. We worked in small teams, reading, measuring and following the recipe. The adults were only there if we needed extra help and to put the biscuits in the oven!
We did our own research on a historic local figure – Cecilia Fiennes. We presented out findings in many different ways and shared them with the rest of Squirrels Class before showing Badgers Class what we had found out.
We made our own Viking boats. First we had to think about how to make the frame of our boat, then papier mache it before painting. We also designed our own shields and sails to add. We all did a fantastic job!
Odd Socks Day
What is bullying? We made a class bullying definition which we have displayed in our class. We wore wearing Odd Socks to celebrate Anti-Bullying Week this year. We are celebrating what makes us all unique. We all coloured our own odd sock to put on a display to remind us of this message.
Fire service visit
We had a visit from the fire service to teach us what we need to do in the event of a fire in our own homes. We learnt rhymes to help us remember, used puppets, played games and dressed up in some firefighting clothes.
The Bridge and the Lost Sheep
The Bridge visited Squirrels class to teach us about the lost sheep. We heard the bible story and then used puppets to retell the story. We all made our own sheep to take home.
We have been planting bulbs outside the front of the school.
We made a bread wheatsheaf for our Harvest Festival.
