The Sett

We will remember.

Welcome back to term 2!

We have had a really busy first week back. On November the 5th, we spent time learning about Guy Fawkes and fireworks to launch our ‘Shine a light’ project.
As well as our usual jam packed schedule of English and maths, we created three different pieces of poppy art which contributed to a gallery display at the end of the week to help commemorate Remembrance day. We also learned about remembrance day and why this years remembrance was especially significant.

Thank you to all the parents who came to see our fantastic art.
We will remember them.

Well done year 2! A fabulous performance in the church today.

Many many people have told me how impressed they were with year 2 and 3. You are super stars!

Marvelous Maths!

This week we have been practicing our number bonds.

Badgers have enjoyed using this game to practice:

Today we have been learning about number lines and trying to estimate where numbers would go.

We have used this game to help us:

Making our own Supertato!

SUPERHEROES

Our new project is superheroes!

This week we have started designing our own superhero capes.

Digby was really proud of his. He coloured it in really carefully.

We ended the week with some superhero themed dancing where year 2 were very creative! Well done!

Have a great weekend!

Oh no! An Evil Pea!

This week we were soooo shocked because our classroom was completely messed up by some evil peas! While we were outside playing, the peas escaped from the freezer and threw pens on the floor, knocked over chairs and made all of the maths equipment go flying across the classroom!

Badgers class, after getting over the shock, tidied up the classroom and Macey took the peas back to the freezer where they belong!

After that, Badger’s wrote some brilliant recounts of what had happened.

I apologize for any year 2s who now don’t like eating their peas because of this! It is linked to our key text this term which is Supertato by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet.

I will put a copy of the text we are learning in the files.

Tour of Britain comes to Timsbury

Welcome back Badgers and thank you for making my first week at St Mary’s so lovely!

We have had such an exciting start with the Tour of Britain passing through Timsbury on Tuesday.

Badgers have been really busy learning about how to read maps and how to use a key. They have successfully plotted the Stage 2 route of the Tour of Britain and added other important land marks to a map of Devon.

They have also worked as a class team to write a fantastic senses poem all about the tour.

Tour of Britain Poem

 Engines roaring like lions

 The smell of the new tarmac road drifting through the thin air

 Police cars beeping loudly like fireworks

 White and blue smooth safety tape like soft guinea pigs

 Cheering people as noisy as excited elephants

 Speedy colourful cyclists passing as fast as a spotted cheaters

 Children chanting like friendly dinosaurs

 Fast speeding motor bikes like rockets around the bend

 Different coloured cars zooming past like rainbow parrots

 Loud clapping like a rumbling tummy

 Squeaking chains like little mice

 By Badgers Class

 

Thank you for all your hard work!
