Creators Class - Year 2
Welcome to Creators Class!
Welcome to our page! We are a very enthusiastic class of Year 2 learners. This term our topic this term is 'Tours with Trowbridge Ted' and we are learning all about Trowbridge and its geography, as well as the history of the woollen trade in the town. We have learned that Trowbridge Ted is the town mascot and he has been to visit our school - he was so cuddly and he taught us some great facts.
Learning of the Week
This week in writing we finished off our traditional tales and what fantastic tales they were! We have been focussing on using different sentence types in our writing and making sure that those sentences are correctly punctuated. Another grammar objective we have been working on is putting conjuntions into our sentences to join ideas or extend them.
In our art lessons have looked at the artwork of Jill Hillman, a local artist, who has done paintings of the nature she sees in Biss Woods.
In geography we learned to use maps and aerial photographs to find out what the physical and human features of Trowbridge are. We have also learned the purpose of a map key and how to use one to help use learn more about a place.
In maths, we have been learning about multiplication and have been amazing at learning our 2, 5 and 10 times table. Miss Perrett has been so impressed with the fact that so many of us have challenged our selves to complete additonal greater depth learning tasks.
Extra useful information:
- P.E. in term 4 will be on Wednesdays and Fridays, so please make sure children have their kits in with them on these days. Please can children have warm jogging trousers or leggings for the cold winter months, since we do still need to go outside for our P.E. lessons.
- Please can all children have an art apron in school to protect their uniform. Aprons can be old clothing such as oversized shirts or blouses (mum/dad/older sibling hand-me-downs) and if possible include sleeves.
- If you'd like to meet with Miss Perrett about anything regarding your child, please arrange an appointment after school. You can also speak to staff in the school office, who will jot down any messages and pass them on to Miss Perrett.
