Recount the recounts!
Year 2 have been super-busy in English over the past few weeks learning all about recounts. They have written three recounts: one about their trip to St Aldhelm’s Church, one about their trip to Kingston Maurward, and their final one was about The Caterpillar’s Shoes. They have been learning all about time adverbs and sequencing events in chronological order. We are so proud of their amazing writing.
We have come to the end of our Science topic on Habitats and our Art topic about Henry Rousseau. The children have had lots of fun with both topics and have produced some super work.
Congratulations to 2MH who are the first class to have won the Radipole Bookworm Trophy. They won the trophy for having 85% of their class reading the expected five weekly reads. We are so very proud of all the children who have helped 2MH to achieve this award.
Next half term, we are starting our DT project on puppets. This will involve some sewing, so any practise that they can do at home will be truly beneficial. Look out for the helpful hints letter that will be coming your way shortly.
