Weeks beginning: 5/6/17 and 12.6.17
In Maths we were split into teams and had to create patterns of symmetry. It was a competition and Miss Furlong had to judge the teams. The winner was Miss Curnock's team!
We had our own Roman elections. Four children wrote their own manifesto which they had to read out to the class. The class then had to vote in the polling station for the person they liked the most. Well done to Daisy who got the most votes!
Forest School Fun!
Look at our plants! The vegetables have been growing very quickly over the past two weeks. Class two are looking forward to picking the produce when it has fully grown.
Here are our Roman Mosaics which we have been making in Art with Mrs Danby. They look very colourful.
The children were set a Roman project for their homework. They had to create or design something to do with the Roman topic they have been learning about at school. The children have worked very hard on these and they all look fantastic. The projects are displayed in the library.
On Thursday we had a cultural diversity workshop where the children had the opportunity to do African dancing and African drumming. It was a great experience and gave the children chance to express themselves creatively through music and movement. It was fun celebrating different cultural traditions and encourages the children to value diversity, 'living together better'.

Class two have been watering and taking care of the vegetables that have been growing.
We picked some lettuce and raddishes and gave them to Julie the cook, she washed them and sliced them for lunch time. We were able to try some with our dinner. We also picked some strawberries because they were ready. They are red when they are ripe. It all tasted delicious! - Year three
On Tuesday afternoon it was Forest School but because it was so hot we stayed at school. We had water play! It was my favourite bit because we got soaking wet and we got to throw wet sponges at each other! - Henry
We could also make mud potions, target aiming with water bottles and animal homes.
"I made a nest for some birds using moss, hay and sticks." - Livie
"I enjoyed doing the water target aiming. I had to choose a spot to aim at and then try to hit it using the water by squeezing the bottle. I scored twice!" William
In History we made some miniature clay colosseums. First we thought about modern day buildings and compared them to Roman buildings. We had to plan how we would make the colosseum and how we would add the detail. Then we each had a ball of clay and tried to create our colosseum following our plan. My design went in a circle and grew bigger and bigger, if I could do it again I would improve it by trying to make it taller. - Livie
This week in maths we have been cracking number problems to solve mysteries and find a culprit. We were given codes to solve, we had to use lots of different mathematical skills, I found it really fun when I was crossing out the culprits and seeing who might of committed the crime! - Daniel
On Thursday in English we wrote our own Roman poems using the plans we made on Wednesday. We could choose what we would like to write about, I wrote a poem called Roman Battles. We had to make sure we included the features of a poem like verses, rhyming words and making sure it had a rhythm. - William

On Monday, Class two were very excited to find out that the potatoes they've been growing were ready to harvest! Miss Curnock tipped the bags of potatoes into the wheelbarrow and the children had to find the potatoes.
Everyone got the chance to dig some potatoes out! I found about four potatoes! Yum yum yum! - Daisy
Julie the cook is going to cook the potatoes for us on Friday so we can try them at lunch. - Iko
It was hard looking for the potatoes because we had to pull apart the compost to find the potatoes. The compost was very hard, this was to hold the potato plants in place when they were growing. - Kelsey and William
We had a very special guest visit the school, it was Clinton Purnell. - Lydia
He is a famous and very good gymnast who has competed in lots of competitions and the common wealth games - Kelsey
He represents Wales! - Lyida
He is an artistic gymnast - William
My favourite demonstration was the backwards somersault. When I was watching I felt very worried he might land on Mrs Price, but he didn't and I was relieved. - Iko
Our school manged to raise over £500 of sponsorship money for Clinton, which is amazing! The whole school has persevered! - Kelsey
With Miss Gibbons we created sunset colosseum pictures by cutting out some black paper into a 2D colosseum. - Kelsey
To make the sunset, we had a piece of paper and three different colours; red, yellow and orange. We painted the whole paper using the different colours to create a beautiful sunset. - Daisy
Next we had to glue the colosseum to the sunset picture. - Iko
I loved the sunset pictures - William
I liked my picture, the holes I cut out of the black paper made the colosseum look real. - Kelsey
The last couple of weeks have been very busy in Class Two!
Take a look at our photographs and see what we have been up too.
We were very excited to cook and try our potatoes we had grown.
Our potatoes tasted amazing!
We also got to share them with the whole school so everyone got the chance to try some.
I want to grow potatoes again next year. - William G
Class two have had great fun in P.E with Mr Alexander!
We have learnt all about cricket; how to play it, the rules and important skills.
One skill I have learned is that you have to keep your arm straight when you throw the ball. You must do an overarm throw. You use your other arm to aim and throw the ball in the direction you want it to go in.
We also got to play lots of fun games of cricket in teams and score points. If you were running and weren't in a safe spot then you would get run out if the bowler hit the stump.
I've really enjoyed it and I am going to play it at home as I have my own cricket set. - William H
One sunny afternoon we got to go outside for our Art lesson with Mrs Danby. We sketched one of our beautiful flower beds.
The flowers were pretty, some flowers we red and some were pink.
We only used a sketching pencil, we used our sketching skills we've been learning over the year. "Go light until you get it right" that's the rhyme that Mrs Danby taught us.
I enjoyed drawing all of it! - Year two
In R.E we draw what forgiveness looks like to us. I used the colours red, blue, orange and green to represent different things to be forgiven, like saying sorry. We then had to write what our picture shows and why we draw this picture. - Gabriella
I wrote the word sorry and created a logo with two people shaking hands in the middle. I draw this because when you shake hands and forgive its making up a friendship. - Alex
We have been learning about the story Peter and the wolf.
First we listened to the music and think about the different instruments being played. I could hear the clarinet and the flute.
After we listened to the music, we had to draw on a piece of paper what we thought the story might be about.
Then we were told the different characters and which instrument was which character. The bird was played by the flute, Peter was the strings, the duck was the oboe, Grandfather was the bassoon, the hunter was the timpani and the cat was played by the clarinet.
Next we were split into groups, and each group had a scene to paint in their group. I had to help paint scene four, this is where the hunter came and helped Peter take the wolf to the zoo. - Katie. S
I was in group 4 too, I enjoyed painting the outlines and the characters. - George
We also wrote the story of Peter and the wolf in our own words, this was very fun because I got to think about my own expressions and how I imagine the story to be. -George
During the last week we were allowed to make a project about anything we like. It could of been a hobby, something we are interested in or something we wanted to find out more about. I worked with Chloe to create a project about horses and ponies. We used the internet and some books to find interesting facts to write on the paper. Mrs Ellis helped us draw a horse, but it didn't really look like a horse! Haha! We also got chance to show the rest of the class our projects.
I enjoyed making the project and learning about horse and ponies. - Kelsey
I liked working with my partner Kelsey, we could share facts. Kelsey knew facts which I didn't know. And I knew things which Kelsey didn't know. - Chloe
