Yr 2 - Wonderful Wisterias

Welcome to Wonderful Wisterias!

smiley Hello all of you Wisterias! This will be my last message to you before the summer and sadly my last message because this will be my last week here at Gladehill. I am so sad that we didn't get to be back in our lovely classroom and that we didn't get to say a proper farewell, but I have passed on all your wonderful work on to your new teachers and they are all looking forward to meeting you in September and they have really enjoyed looking at your books and wonderful work! As you know some of you will be meeting new friends in September but I know you will all settle in very quickly and try your very best to SPARKLE! If you have not already collected your books you will be able to ask your new Year 3  teachers  for them, because they have been passed on to them for you to collect. PLEASE take them because there is some beautiful work to show everyone at home and for you to look back on when you get older. I hope you all have a wonderful summer and a great time in your new classes. Bye for now.....and keep safe! Ms Moore

21st June 2020

Hi Wisterias.....I hope everybody is ok and keeping well. It has been lovely to see some of you coming back to school, but also it's lovely to also know that some of you have been trying hard at home to complete the tasks from either the packs or choosing activities from the web page. Lets hope everything gets back to how it was in the near future. At school we have been working hard to make our new classrooms bright and cheerful and this week we are going to do some Andy Warhol art and looking at how we can keep our bodies really healthy with different exercises. I call this the 4 S's- strength,  stamina, speed and suppleness, so each week before the summer holidays we are going to work on one of these. smiley Bye for now Ms Moore

It's the final Summer term and we are excited to share all your learning with you!

 

There has been lots of 'superheroes' helping us in our communities at the moment... which made us think about a very important BIG QUESTION...

 

Do all superheroes have special powers?

 

This half term we are going to be exploring 'Superheroes', thinking about what makes them special and what powers we each have in order to be superheroes ourselves.  We will be thinking about how to keep ourselves healthy and also finding out about 'Florence Nightingale', who was a famous nurse from many years ago... We hope you enjoy!  Mrs Moore & Miss Lee x

 

Summer 2

 

Hi everybody..as we all know, this term again will be different, as different year groups will begin coming back to school. I am really missing everybody in our class so I know you must be missing all your friends and your routines too! Sometimes that horrible feeling in your tummy is what it is! Nevertheless myself and Miss Lee are working hard on the home curriculum again trying to keep it as close as we can to what you would be doing in school. I am getting better at working on the computer all the time!

Ms Moore

In science

This term we looking at what makes a healthy, balanced diet and food groups such as protein and carbohydrates. We could begin by making a list of our favourite foods and dinners first and then compare them to the groups to see how healthy they are.

In Maths

We are going to continue working on set work from My maths but at the same time work hard at learning new times tables like the 3's and the 6's. I am going to attach some word problems linked to all the maths we have done this year so you will need to think carefully about which calculations you will need.

In English

Our book this term is Traction man and our writing themes are about superheroes. You will be inventing your own superhero and writing a descriptive story describing your superhero's super talents and powers and all the events in your story. I will write one too as a model for you to use. we will also write some non-fictional reports too about famous heroes such as Florence Nightingale.
