Yesterday we invited our parents in to see all our topic learning and to take part in our exit point. The children had designed and made their, ‘Guess Who’ boards so all that was left to do was to play, play, play!
A massive thank you to the following parents/carer(s): Laila’s mum, Harvey’s mum, Rijja’s mum, Fraya T’s dad, Isabelle’s mum, Ethan’s dad, Alan’s mum, Brooke’s aunty, Kayla’s mum and dad, Joshua’s mum, Angela’s mum and Etinosa’s mum for taking the time out of their busy day. We’re super glad you came and hope you had fun!
We loved your feedback about what went well:
“Listening to the children asking and answering a wide range of questions about each character.”
“Children played nicely, excellent way to learn.”
“The kids did well describing each child and had fun.”
Even better if:
“We had bigger chairs!” – I promise I’ll get more next time!
We are working hard to learn our times tables but we need your help! We need to recall them super quickly, not just counting up in multiples. We need to learn our 2s, 5s and 10s. We love using songs to help us learn, listen to us go!
Since September, we have been learning about ourselves. We have celebrated our similarities, differences and learned that we can belong to different groups. We even learned how we are similar and different to children around the world.
For our exit point, we are inviting parents in to learn all about us in a special game of ‘Guess Who!’ To do this, we had to put our creative DT skills to the test to make our very own boards. We even wrote instructions on how to make the boards. Take a look at our hard work:
Making the game:
Fancy a unique sandwich? One you’ve never had before? Well look no further because we’ve found you one! Just joking…. Have a look at the truly disgusting ones we’ve looked at ready for our new English genre, instructions.
We then made videos. In our videos we used adjectives to describe the sandwiches! Take a look:
This week we have been learning about editing and how to be good editors. In Year 2 we need to suggest changes to work and correctly errors. We used the book, ‘The Very Little Red Riding Hood’ and edited it! We changed the incorrect speech because Very Little Red Riding Hood doesn’t speak properly and we added some time connectives to make it more exciting. Some of us even added exciting adjectives to engage the reader even more. Take a look at some of the work we’ve done!
