We love recorders!

We have been learning how to play the recorders in school! We have learnt how to hold it properly and we need to listen carefully to all the instructions so that we are all playing the same note!

 

We love Sudbury Hall!

Year 2 spent a beautiful sunny day visiting Sudbury Hall, Museum of Childhood on Thursday. In the morning we enjoyed a toy workshop and taking a look at the childhood Museum. Everyone got to have a go at climbing the chimney! They even came out with soot on their faces.

Without a doubt the best bit of the trip was becoming a child in the Victorian classroom. Children wore sailor collars and after paying a penny entered the classroom in silence to find rows of wooden benches and desks. The teacher who was in character got the children to do some reading, writing and times table work. They used a slate and chalk to write their name and when not writing had to sit with their hands behind their backs and sitting up straight. Any left handlers were made to use their right hand, poor Oskar and Mrs Baker!

We love learning!

The first full week of 2B has whizzed past! Using the computers we have been writing all about ourselves and learning all about each other.  Children learnt that sentences need a capital letter at the front and a full stop at the end. Our sentences were printed and children cut them out and put them on their own backgrounds. These are all now on display in the classroom.

On Tuesday we started recorder lessons! Everyone was extremely excited and couldn’t wait.

‘I like Year 2 because we get new experiences and we learn good things!’   Vismay

‘I just like being with Mrs Baker!’   Oskar

 

 

I love my new class!

It has been lovely to find out what all the children have been doing over the summer holidays. Welcome to CJ and Jonas who have made a confident new start in the class. We have had lots of fun already. Roll on next week!
