Class 2 Blog
20th September 2019
Class 2 have settled into their new routine. They are grouped for either phonics or spellings and Year 1 Maths is taught by Mrs Marsh and Year 2 Maths is taught by Mrs Langton. At the moment, we are doing our mile a day run, mid-morning. The children are encouraged to drink from their water bottle straight afterwards, which is positioned adjacent to the classroom entrance. In Literacy, we have been reading The Tiger Came to Tea and Dogger. The Year 2 children have been retelling the story and editing their writing. The Year 1 children have been focusing on using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. Some children have been using a conjunction in their sentences too. In Science, we’ve been learning about how we use our five senses. In Geography, we have looked at a map of Rettendon, locating the school, Little Darwins and the church. We have also written about the different types houses we live in or have visited.

This week, Year 2 have been learning to add in tens and ones, using the column method.
In PE, we have loved our football lessons with the coach and practising catching skills. In Art, we’ve been painting beautiful starry skies, in the style of Vincent Van Gogh and in Geography, we’ve enjoyed using compasses to find North, South, East and West.
Class 2 are still running everyday but due to time restraints we do not have time to change into running shoes, so the children have been able to take them home.
