4W 2019 - 2020
We have had a great first term in 4W ranging from creating and writing about our own dinosaurs to visiting the pantomime. We really enjoyed learning about the Ancient Egyptians and were fascinated by the mummy on our trip to Derby Museum. In maths, we are trying really hard to improve our speed and accurate recall of the times tables. What a great start !!
CLASS 2M 2017-2018
Welcome to 2M!
Weird and Wonderful Plants!
In Science we have been learning all about weird and wonderful plants.
We have become experts, we know what plants need to survive and how important they are in the food chain.
We have planted our very own magic beans in class and have been busy researching and finding facts about the deadly Venus Fly Trap plant!
We even have two Venus Fly Traps in class named Snappy and Happy!
Take a look!
This term we have been having so much fun reading super silly nonsense poems.
We have learnt fabulous songs and poems written by Michael Rosen who we think is
hilarious, the poem ‘ Chocolate Cake’ is our favourite.
We have also learnt and performed some amazing poems from the book
‘The Booktime Book of Fantastic First Poems!'
Here are some of our own silly poems based on the poem ‘ My name is…’ by Pauline Clarke.
Have a listen we think you will find them very funny!
We have been having lots of fun in Year 2 learning all about our local environment in or “Welcome to NG5“ topic. We have been busy learning all about different types of houses, studying maps of Sherwood and designing our own maps. The children have created some awesome structures of their homes for their homework project too. Take a look!
In literacy we have been reading lots of fabulous books based on letters, we have read "Dear Greenpeace" by Simon James which is all about a little girl called Sophie who finds a whale in her pond.
Earlier in the week, we had a mysterious creature of our own appear in the school garden and they left us some clues. After investigating, the children worked out it was an elephant called Edward that Mrs Mason has been feeding. He’s a very messy elephant and he left lots of nouns, proper nouns, verbs and adjectives in the garden for us to find. We had great fun finding them and using them to make silly sentences.
