We have got stuck in with our new topic this week on nocturnal animals. We have enjoyed reading books and finding out facts.
On Wednesday we had a visitor from Wildlife Aid. They look after wild animals that have been hurt. They told us all about nocturnal animals and even shared some stories about the nocturnal animals they are looking after. We have been watching the webcams on their website to see some of the animals but of course some of them are asleep during the day!
In Literacy we have been writing nocturnal animal riddles and reading them to the class to see if they could guess. We began by writing our clues and then putting them into order, beginning with the trickiest. Next we improved upon our clear speaking voices by reading them to the class.
Later on in the week we read 'Oi Frog'. Using the rhyming pattern to help us, we planned and wrote our own. On Friday we began to illustrate it and we will hopefully finish these next week! We came up with some great sentences like foxes sit on boxes, moles sit on bowls and owls sit on towels.
In Maths we were recapping on all of our Year 2 learning so far, in particular our understanding of place value and using this to solve problems. We will continue this next week.
Next week is Arts Week so it will be a full week of designing, drawing, acting and music. We will also be continuing our papier mache nocturnal animal masks which are looking great so far!
For next week, Henry was chosen by the class to be our V.I.P. Well done for all your hard work this week, Henry!
Izzy, for her consistently brilliant home learning.
