First Week

14 Sep 2017

Hello,

2JB have had a fantastic first week back. Here is an update on some of our learning so far;

In English we've been reading The Promise by Nicola Davies. We've learnt all about a girl who changes her city for the better by planting acorns. We've started to write our own story about how we can change our city.

In Maths we've been practicing our 2, 5 and 10 x tables. We've also looked at the place value of 3 digit numbers. Yesterday we used Hit the Button to help us remember our times tables. You can have a go at home too. 

In Science we have started our work on Habitats and we'll be looking at the habitats of animals around the world today. 

In Forest School this week we had a lot of fun with conkers. We even got to collect our own and store them in our socks. 

Don't forget it's our class assembly on Friday 22nd September. The scripts will be given our tomorrow and the homework task will be to learn them. 

Thanks,

Miss Bowerman

Welcome to Year 2

07 Sep 2017

Hello and welcome to 2JB!

The class have had a fantastic start to the year and are enjoying being in their new classroom. This term our topic will be Rights and Responsibilities with a focus on how we look after our local area and the environment. Year 2 will be focusing on composting and how we cut down on our food waste. This leads on nicely from their amazing work on recycling. It also links to our topic in Science which is habitats. We'll be visiting the Wildlife Centre in Peckham to help with our learning. It should be a great term. 

Don't forget that Monday 11th September is our parent pop evening in until 6.30pm which will give everyone the chance to come and see the classroom and find out about our learning.

Thanks,

Miss Bowerman 

Summer Fair!

29 Jun 2017

Hi 1LJ!

We have had a super fun week of learning! As well as this, (in case you didn't know already) we have been watching caterpillars grow and build cocoons and yesterday, they all hatched out of their cocoons and are now beautiful butterflies. They are spending a bit of time on each table before we set them free. Pop in to see them after school if you have time!

Learning we have done this week:

English: Letter writing. We read the story 'Alfie Gives a Hand' by Shirley Hughes and wrote a letter to Bernard in the character of Alfie. We learnt about where we write our address and the date.

Maths: Multiplication using repeated addition and arrays.

Science: Describing different materials and their properties.

Art: Planning our weather collage using oil pastels and paint.

Geography: Learning about weather around the world

 

Golden Lotteries

CONGRATULATIONS to Jaiden, whose name got picked out of the Golden Lottery box for 'not giving up when faced with a challenge'.

Another congratulations to Benjamin who received a Golden Lottery this week for his AMAZING letter writing in English.

Summer Fair

Don't forget to come to Telferscot's Summer Fair this Saturday 1st July 2017. Thank you to the children who have returned their treasure bags. They all look like they are filled with lots of fun and exciting things!

Thank you to Kathy who has offered to help us out with our Library trip this Friday. If there are any other parents who are free between 12.45 and 2.30pm please let me know! If we don't have enough adults then we will not be able to go.

Telfer Gallery

Next Thursday 6th July, the children's art project will be showcased after school from 5.30-6.30pm. They will be working in groups to produce a 'Wild Weather' collage. Please come along to have a look at their creative work.

Show and Tell

Well done to Maia, who talked to us about playdough and its properties, which linked nicely to our science learning this week. 

Next Wednesday is Macaws turn for show and tell. Learning theme: Weather and collaging using different materials. 

Happy learning!

National Theatre and Coding

22 Jun 2017

Hi 1LJ,

It has been a sweltering week due to the hot weather, but despite this, we have been able to do so much learning AND go on two school trips!

'The Story Fisher's' performance at the National Theatre was a success and the children loved meeting Ted and Dom dressed in their fishy outfits! It was a wonderful experience and we can now all say that we have been on the stage of the National Theatre!

The children also loved their trip to the CLC and learnt all about coding and how computers need to follow precise instructions (algorithms) in order to work. If you would like your child to continue this learning at home and have an ipad, download the app 'Scratch Jnr'. It is very child friendly and it's FREE! Win win. 

Please don't forget that this Friday 23rd is MUFTI DAY! Please bring in something for the hamper prizes at the summer fair.

 

NEXT WEEK - We will be visiting Balham library on Friday 30th June. We need some extra adults to accompany us on the journey so if you are free from 12.45 - 2.30pm please let me know. 

 

Show and tell

Pandas

Learning theme: Multiplication (2's, 5's, 10's), letter writing to the character 'Alfie' from Shirley Hughes story, friendships, materials and their properties. 

Happy learning

Miss Jun-Tai
