It has been a busy week in Base 2!

In our literacy lessons this week we have started reading our new class text, Stanley's Stick. Before we even opened the book the children came up with lots of great ideas about the adventures they thought Stanley might get up to in the story. After reading the first part of the book and learning about all of the amazing things Stanley's stick can be, we went outside in search of our own special stick that could be anything our imaginations wished it to be. Our sticks have now been given names and described using interesting adjectives, and we have started work on some descriptive writing about our sticks and what they can be with just a little help from our imagination.

In maths we have been continuing with our place value work and consolidating our knowledge. The year 1 children have been doing lots of work on 1 more than and 1 less than whilst the year 2 children have been using their place value knowledge to help work on more than, less than and equal to problems. We have also been practising reading and writing numbers up to 100 in both numerals and words.
Well done to those children who have already completed their MyMaths activities, I have been very impressed. A little reminder — you have one more week to do this as I will be setting a new maths activity to be completed at home every other Monday. If you need to complete this in school, please do let me know.

We have spent lots of time learning outside this week. In our science lessons we were learning about different habitats and went searching for some in the school grounds. We found lots of creatures hidden away under rocks and leaves, as well as some birds nests high up in the trees and even some mole hills! We took clipboards and drew pictures of those we found which we later used to think about why the animals would choose to live there.

In art we were learning about the sculptor, Andy Goldsworthy. We looked at some of his artwork and talked about our likes and dislikes before going outside to create our own Andy Goldsworthy inspired artwork. The children all worked really well in their teams and created some fabulous artwork using natural resources we found around the school grounds. Whilst we all had to start our piece of artwork with a hole through to the ground, we finished with a lovely selection of sculptures as everyone had thought to use pattern and colour in a different way.

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend — see you on Monday.
Miss Pitchford

I would like to share something that happened yesterday in school...something that went beyond 'We all matter' in my eyes.It was Alesha's birthday. She arrived in school with a big, birthday badge pinned to her uniform sweatshirt and with a birthday balloon. I assumed it was Alesha's balloon. It wasn't. Alesha had brought in the birthday balloon to give William, in her...
