As part of our Skellybones topic, Penguin Class visited Pizza Express. As well as creating our own pizzas, we also learnt about a balanced diet and the healthy ingredients that we could chose to add to a pizza.
Peacock Class will be visiting Pizza Express soon. Keep checking the website to see their photos added too.
Clever Never Goes
Clever Never Goes replaces Stanger Danger has been developed to give children practical safety skills which they can use now and as they get older and become more independent .
Today, the children have had an opportunity to create a "Go Spotter" to help them make safe decisions about keeping safe.
If you choose to read at home each night, show the teacher your signed reading record the following morning and your name will be moved up on to the shooting star.

Have you returned your slip with the time you are available to come in?
Our Writing Journey
We have been reading the story of Hansel and Gretel, in readiness for writing our own fairy tales. We are looking forward to you reading them when you come in to parent's evening.
We are becoming math's experts using money.
How can you help at home?
Encourage your child to read prices when you go to the shop. Can they identify pounds and pence? How could they make the total cost using coins and or notes? Can they calculate the change?
Could they set up a shop at home, label the items for sale and identify which coins could be used to buy them?
We always welcome any home learning to be brought in to class.
DID YOU KNOW...?
Reading your library book at home counts as a read in the reading record.
Every Tuesday, it is year 2's opportunity to visit the school library. Children have an opportunity to change their library books and learn new library skills. So now it's the time to look at home under beds, behind curtains and in bookcases to find that lost library book ready to exchange for a new book to enjoy.
In gymnastics this term, we are looking at how our bodies move and are looking at how movements can be linked together smoothly. In addition, we are composing a short, simple sequence of two or three body shapes from the straight or tuck family. The children are also enjoying using the apparatus to extend their learning of how their bodies move and how they transition on and off the equipment.
Maths in Year 2
Are you ever puzzled by how we support the children with their maths learning? The children have been busy creating examples of what we use in class to solve maths problems. If you would like to know more, come in and ask a member of staff for more information. We are very soon going to be launching an exciting new resource that your child can access at home so keep an eye on the website for further updates.
Our new topic this term is Skellybones.
Do you have any skills or resources that you would like to share with the children. Please see the class teacher for further information.
Welcome back after the New Year!
The children have come back enthused after the Christmas break and have got stuck straight back in to their learning.
