Oak Learning Blog – Spring 2 week 2

By Debbie Barlow on Sunday, March 11, 2018 in Year 2. No Comments

Hello everyone,

Welcome to this week’s Oak Learning Blog! It was a bit of a strange week last week with snow and parents meetings meaning everything was out of routine. I’m pleased to say that the children coped well and have been learning lots too and this week will return to normality! Read on to find out what we’ve been up to this week.

In English we have concluded our work on ‘The Dark’ by Lemony Snicket. The children seemed to have really engaged with the book, and have written some fantastic stories of their own at the end of the week. We will shortly be commencing our learning about The Great Fire of London, which should be equally as exciting!

In Maths we have been looking at statistics and interpreting data. The children have constructed and answered questions about a variety of tally charts, block diagrams and pictograms. Towards the end of the week we began our new unit of work on 2D and 3D shape, using the shape names and properties such as sides and corners (vertices) for 2D shapes and faces, edges and vertices for 3D shapes. We have also been practicing our mental maths targets in class – see if you can practice yours this weekend!

We have also been up to lots in the afternoons. In art, we looked at ‘The Scream’ by Edvard Munch who will be our inspirational artist for this half term. In Computing we looked at binary questioning which will help us to make our own branching databases. And in Jigsaw we have been learning about which medicines help to keep us healthy.

On Thursday, I  handed out to the children their speaking parts for our upcoming class assembly on Thursday. Please can you help your child to learn their lines  to help them to give a fantastic performance! The children are keen to wear their own clothes so if you could send in a set of clothes by Wednesday it would be much appreciated. For boys any dark clothes or a shirt, jacket, waistcoat or flat cap if you have them. For girls any darkish coloured clothes like a dress/skirt/ trousers. If you have a pinny that would be great but please don’t go to any trouble or expense.  Its to fit a Lowry theme if that helps.

It was lovely to meet with you all during the last week, and even better to share all of the children’s fantastic progress with you as well! Thank you for your continued support, greatly appreciated. I hope you all have all had a lovely weekend, and see you on Monday!

Love Mrs Barlow xxx
