Miss McGee and Mrs Blekinsopp would like to welcome you to class 2M.
We have had a great first half term learning about lots of new and exciting things!
This half term we are continuing our learning about pirates, visiting The Captain Cook Birthplace Museum to find out all about Captain James Cook and his voyages and writing letters to pirates. Our focus books for this half term will be The night Pirates by Peter Harris and The Stick Man by Julia Donaldson.
This page will be updated regularly to let you know all about the exciting learning we have been doing and update you on any important news.
We had a brilliant time learning all about bonfire night, Guy Fawkes and firework safety. We closed our eyes and imagined all the things we will see, hear, smell and feel at a firework display on the 5th of November.
We created fabulous bright and colourful pieces of firework writing and are very proud of them!
We had a great half term learning all about Peter Pan and his magical adventures! We described Peter Pan using exciting adjectives, imagined what it would be like to fly through the sky like Peter Pan and wrote our very own adventures to a magical world.
To finish off the topic we wrote book reviews for Peter Pan, letting everyone know how much we enjoyed the book.
This week we had a brilliant time beginning our learning in computing. We used the Bee Bots to begin to understand algorithms and coding. We learned a lot about how to give instructions and directions and had a great time using the treasure maps and building mazes.
