Weekly News

At the start of the week, we watched the Year 3 and 4 Christmas show ‘Bah Humbug’ that was enjoyed by all.

In English this week, we have been working hard to edit and improve our Storm Animal stories. The children are SO proud of their writing, as are we! They have made their stories into little books and wrapped them in an envelope to give to you as a Christmas gift. We hope you enjoy reading these over the holidays.

In Maths this week, we have been looking at drawing arrays to solve multiplication problems. For example, 4 x 6 means we can draw four crosses, six times. Please reinforce this method with your children at home whenever possible.

In Art this week we looked at the illustrations from our class book ‘The Storm Whale’ and watched a video of the author/illustrator Benji Davies draw one his characters. The children then copied and sketched a page from the book and added watercolour paint to finish.

In Spanish, we have been learning about Christmas in Spain and made Spanish Christmas cards. The children love learning a new language and we are very impressed with their enthusiasm.

Just a reminder that the first Friday back is our trip to the castle and your child will need a packed lunch.

Have a very merry Christmas and Happy New Year
The Year Two Team
