Robin

Welcome to Robins.

Our new reading area...

Mrs Singh and Mrs Garvey have been working hard over the summer to update the reading corner in the Year 2 shared area. We think the children will really enjoy using this area.

Name the fish competition.

Winner!!

Well done to Jenson for choosing the winning fish names Ben and Rosie! These names were selected by a class vote. 
 

Our writing polished pieces. 

Purpose: to write a character description.

In year two we have been reading the story of The Princess and the Wizard by Julia Donaldson. As part of our first writing sequence we have been learning about adjectives and nouns. The children developed the skills to enable them to write a character description of the wizard/princess in the story. All of Year two have worked immensely hard to complete this piece of writing. I am very proud to say that all of the Robins have used all of Willow’s ASPIRE values when writing their character descriptions! Please find below some of our character descriptions. Enjoy reading !!! 

The Princess and the Wizard

Light  bulb 💡 moments!! 

In year two we want the children to be able to express and share any ideas they have. This could be in the class or out of school. We celebrate these ‘light bulb moments’ by giving the child the opportunity to explain their idea verbally and the also receive a light bulb 💡 that they keep at their table. This is do they can be recognised for having a good idea and adults in our class can ask them questions about their new idea. This will improve independence, communication, self-confidence and more!! You might like to talk to your child about this at home.

Remembrance Day  

The children created their own poppies using different materials to mark this important day. We talked about what Remembrance Day was and why it was celebrated. We also took part in a 2 minute silence to show that our thoughts were with those who fought for us. 

 

Senses Poems

In English the children have been working on poetry for the last two weeks. They have learnt about what poetry is and have been looking at the different types of poems. 
Using all of the poetry skills they have been taught, the children have created their on senses poems based on bonfire night. 

Here are some examples. Enjoy!

Castles and the Sun

The children have been working on an Art project this term which has been based on the work of the very famous Artist Paul Klee. We started off by using different art techniques with oil pastels and then went on to investigate what would happen if we painted over the oil pastels with some water colours. 
Next we used shapes to build our own Castles in and the Sun art. I am so proud of the final outcomes of our art masterpieces! The Robins worked incredibly hard to create their art. 

REINDEER SURPRISE!!
The children had a magical surprise this morning...REINDEERS!! We were all very lucky to be able to see these beautiful reindeers. The children had no idea and when they all saw the reindeers the look on their faces was priceless! We got to find out lots of facts about the reindeers and the children had the chance to ask questions. It was truly magical.  

Design and Technology 

Year two have worked in collaboration with a partner to create their own castles as part of our Kings, Queens and Castles topic. The have used various boxes, tubes and paper to make the different features of a castle. First the children had to make a plan of what they wanted their castles to look like and had to then label the different features they had included. They were all resilient and produced some super models. 

Christmas Performance 

We have been practising our Christmas performance. Thank you to all the children for practising their lines independently. They all were fantastic at acting out their parts. This performance will soon be ready for all grown ups to watch on our school website, look out for the details which will be communicated soon. 

Christmas Jumper Competition

Well done to Nyal for winning the Christmas Jumper competition. There was one winner per class. Thank you to everyone who entered. 

Christmas Message 
The children have enjoyed the last day of term. We have had lots of fun, I just  wanted to say a massive thank you to all our parents and pupils for working with us so well this term. I hope you all have a great Christmas/break and I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year!! Have a good one !
