Is it really half-term already? Where has the time gone!
This week, we had our last gymnastics lesson with Mr Carr using the equipment. The children really loved using it and demonstrated some great core strength, balance and movements! PE will go back to being on a Thursday and Friday after half-term so make sure you have your kits ready!
We have loved exploring poetry this week. We have spotted where the rhyme is in poems, any repetition, alliteration and talked about verses being a change of idea. We enjoyed sharing our favourite poems, and especially liked one of Miss Everett's favourite ones - Strict by Michael Rosen! It was very funny! We worked in groups to perform a poem today called The Mud-Maker's Rhyme by Janet Paisley. We had to use our voices in difference ways to show expression, include actions and use our faces too! The children did such an amazing job, I put them all on gold!
In maths, we have continued to explore division as sharing, answering word problems and making sure we could record our working out in a clear way and also be efficient with our method!
We have now finished our Great Yarmouth history topic and had fun learning about what the seaside was like 100 years ago and comparing it to now. We also looked at lots of books that had tons of old photographs of Great Yarmouth in. This helped us to really see what it would have been like when Great Yarmouth was becoming 'great!'
It was lovely to talk to all of you at parents' evening this week and I said that I would send home a recommended reading list for Year 2 of books that are appropriate for this age group. I have attached the document below should you want to head to the library over half-term to explore some of the titles!
I hope you have a great half-term and come back ready and enthusiastic to learn even more!
