WOW!  What a beautifully sunny start to the new academic year !  It was a pleasure to be back in the classroom with all your wonderful children.  We've had a busy week that was made even more exciting on Thursday as we welcomed two new students into our St Paul's family.

 

Take a look at how our learning journey in Year 2 has started...

Our focus school value this year is THOUGHTFUL.  On Monday we used the book Together We Can.. as a stimulus to consider how we can be thoughtful in our everyday actions and words.  We created a class display from our work entitled Together We Can ... Be Thoughtful.

 

Together We Can - Listen to the story here...

The perfect picture book celebrating friendship, compassion, diversity and togetherness in the world. Our friends are all different, but one thing is true, each one is quite precious and that includes YOU! .

In ENGLISH, all classes in school have been looking at What We'll Build by Oliver Jeffers - a great way to start a new year, fostering the sense of belonging and community in the St Paul's Family.  2C have been building structures, considering what makes a house a home and discussing how we all help to build each others futures.  We've talked about the importance of having dreams and goals to aspire to.  Your children already have BIG plans to be scientists, astronauts, teachers, a Formula 1 driver, a deep sea diver, the lead dancer in Swan Lake, a vet that takes care of Dalmatians and a chocolate delivery man !   I hope I can play a small part in helping them in their quests smiley.

 

 

MATHS has been mainly outdoors rolling the giant dice to recall basic facts such as the number, is it odd or even, 1 more, 1 less or 10 more, it's number bond to 10 or 20 and double the number or half the number.  Great fun in the sunny weather !  We have also looked at number squares and how we can use them efficiently to help us, moving on to recognising, reading and writing numbers with a partner.

In our THRIVE sessions, we have done lots of work on recognising and naming our emotions and how they make us feel this week.  After making different emotion faces from paper plates, we acted out some scenarios using them to show what our reaction might be.  We discussed how others may experience different emotions to ourselves. We explored our class emotion monsters and the class emotions thermometer and know how to use them so we can all feel happy and safe.
