We would like to wish you a very warm welcome to the Tigers Class 2019-2020. We are a mixed Year 1/2 Class with 3 adults. Miss Reid is the class teacher, Mrs Kurn is the teaching assistant and Mrs Sprack works in the class as a 1:1. When Miss Reid is out of class she is covered by Mrs Compton (PE specialist) and Mrs Simmonds (Science Specialist). We are all very happy to be working with your children, please come and say Hello when you can.WELCOME TO THE TIGERS!
P4C - Philosophy for Children! This week we established our ground rules and then started on our first big question. This was linked to our topic on the Titanic. The children were brilliant and so thoughtful with their responses. We can't wait for our next session!
Boats with Moving parts. We have made boats with 3 or 4 moving parts using a flap, a pivot, a slider and a spring.
Maths - Please ask me what the commutative law is !
Class Collective Worship - We hold our crosses when we are thinking about God and saying our prayers.
How did they stop the Titanic Disaster from happening again? Today, we acted out the story of the Titanic but added in all the safety devices that are now found on ships that save lifes. We went to our muster stations, put on lifejackets and climbed into lifeboats. A final end to our topic!
We needed a hat to wear for our Christmas Lunch - so we started to tackle "Repeating Patterns" in maths!
Our Amazing Titanic Trip - What a great ending to our history topic!
Wow look at our Kenning Poems - with a Christmas theme!
Be Bright Be Seen Day - we made posters to help us keep safe on the roads
As part of our Science lesson and with the help of The Woodland Trust, Tigers have been able to plant lots of sapling trees this afternoon. They have made a little hedge around the pollinator patch they helped grow last summer. Everyone was brilliant at digging and planting their sapling with care. Well done all tree planters! Mrs Simmons was really impressed with you all!
Bingo - We played BINGO today to help us with number recognition - who knew the Tigers would love it so much!?
Help with spelling - why not try rainbow writing? Ask a grown up to model the correct cursive writing for your spellings first. Then add your rainbow colours. Need help? Just ask! Thank you, Miss Reid x
In Maths we are using numberlines to add two numbers together. Here are some examples of how to do this to help you at home:
Peter Rabbit Party - we had a wonderful time tasting parsley, lettuce, radishes, french beans and current buns. This was all washed down with some lovely chamomile tea!
As part of the end of our Peter Rabbit topic we made Apple Crumble - some children also added Blackberries, just like Peter Rabbit's Mummy!
15.10.19 Today in maths we have been counting in 2's, 5's and 10's. The year 2's have been thinking about much larger numbers and considering whether those numbers would be reached if we were for example counting in 10's. For example: Would we get to 223 if we counted in tens? No - because if we count in tens from 0 all the numbers end in 0!
Every week we have a collective worship in our class. The children have a cross to hold which they made. They also hold a special stone which helps them feel calm and focussed. This week our big question was: What would you do with the power of invisibility? The children had some lovely ideas about how they could do nice things for other people which would be a lovely surprise for them!
14.10.19 Today some of the Year 2's used a thesaurus to find better words to describe how Mr McGregor was feeling!
RE Day Creation Concept: Thankfulness Linked to Harvest. Here are a few pictures of our RE day on Friday.
3rd October 2019 Tigers have spent several weeks learning to identify the trees in our school grounds using Identification Charts from the Woodland Trust. We have thought about the shape of trees and their leaves. Everyone has enjoyed spotting signs of Autumn!
