Deepdale Class

AUTUMN 1

Deepdale Class have made a fabulous start to Year 2. I have been so impressed with how quickly they have settled in to their new classroom and new routines. They have all impressed me with how hard they are working and the learning that has already taken place. I am sure that it is going to be a fantastic year!

The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch

In class we have been reading the story 'The Lighthouse Keeper's lunch', the class have enjoyed learning lots of new vocabulary such as  ingenious and industrious and have been trying to use these new words in their writing. I have been very impressed with their character and setting descriptions and I look forward to reading their own versions of the story that they have been planning this week.

Keeping Healthy

We have been thinking about how to have a healthy lifestyle in both PSHE and science. We have tried some different healthy foods and planned a healthy meal. We have also thought about how much exercise we do and have started doing a 10 minute run or walk at least 3 times a week to help us to build up our fitness.

Recorders

Deepdale Class have started to learn the recorder with Mrs Bedford on a Monday afternoon and I have been very impressed with the sounds coming from the classroom.

Maths

In maths we have been looking at place value and learning to partition a number into tens and ones. We have also been practising our counting in steps of 2, 5, 10 and 3 so that we are ready for times tables later in the year.

The Titanic

This week we have been learning about the Titanic. The class have really enjoyed learning lots of facts about the Titanic, what it was like to be a passenger, how it sunk and even the size of the iceberg.

In science we made iceberg and looked at how they sat in the water, particularly how much of an iceberg hides underneath the water.
