Visit to Paddington Children's Library: Monday 17th January 2022 

Kingfishers had a fantastic visit to Paddington Children’s Library on Monday 17th January.  The librarian read us two stories then we got to choose two books each to borrow for our classroom for the term.

"My favourite part was when the librarian read the Blue Penguin story" - Shagaf

"I liked the trip, I found a really cool book about space!" - Sienna

“I liked all the books in the library. I found a book about Floella Benjamin who we learnt about in Black History Month" - Florence

"It was fantastic because there was a book all about LEGO!" - Sebastian

Our next visit to the library is on Monday 28th February. We can't wait but in the meantime we will have lots of fun reading the books we have borrowed.

We had a fantastic time at Paddington exploring our local wildlife. We had a tour around our forest school, looked at different types of leaves and even played a few team work games.

Good morning Kingfishers!

Happy international space week! We've had a blast learning all about the different planets. This Thursday we also celebrated international poetry day, I was so proud of your performance in front of the school! You all performed with confidence and with a smile on your faces. 

In maths this week, we have been busy starting our new topic: Addition and Subtraction. If you would like to practice this at home you can recap your number bonds to 20. We have also been busy creating our class display for our topic 'Growing Together'. You all did an amazing job with your writing. Check out the pictures to see some of your brilliant work!

Finally, a massive thank you to everyone for taking part in the School marathon. We have raised lots of money for our school and the children had great fun getting involved.

Take care,

Miss Pike

Good afternoon!

We have had a mystery to solve in Kingfishers this week. We came into school on Tuesday to find that all of our books had mysteriously disappeared. Luckily, they left some clues to help us find out books. After, some brilliant detective skills we found out that Anansi the king of stories had taken our books!

In maths, we have been practising counting in 2s, 5s, and 10s ready to start learning how to count in 3s next week. If you would like to get a head start with this you can watch the video here:

Finally, this afternoon we have created some beautiful painting of flowers inspired by our book 'The Secret Sky Garden'. Have a look at the pictures below to see our masterpieces!

 

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Pike

Good afternoon Kingfishers!

It has been another busy week in Kingfishers class. We have worked very hard in our writing this week and have created some fantastic information texts on why green spaces are so important. You should all be very proud! In maths, we have been practicing our place value to 100 and learning all about how to represent numbers on a place value chart. Then as a special treat at the end of the week, the year 6s came down to be our buddie readers. We had a lovely time reading with them.

Please also see the curriculum newsletter attached below for more information on what your child will be learning about this half term. 

 

Have a lovely day,

Miss Pike

Hello Kingfishers!

 

What a brilliant week we have had in the Kingfishers. We have been working hard and doing lots of things. Our story this week was 'The Secret Sky Garden' where we taked about looking after the environment we are in and by doing so we feel so much better about things. In maths we have been learning all about place value to 100 and comparing numbers.

We've also been thinking about our families and the ways we show love and kindness to each other. Please find attached the presentation that we shared in our Welcome to Year 2 meetings this week.

Reminders 

PE is on Monday and Thursday.

The children were sent home with Log in details for Seesaw and Bug club. If you have any issues logging in please do not heistate to contact me via the office and I will do what I can to support. 

 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Miss Pike
