Our seeds have germinated and so we are all very excited. We have discovered that plants can grow from seeds without any soil, but that it is not a healthy plant because they get extra nutrients from the soil to be healthy plants. We have started to measure and record our findings in our own books too.
We have all had a great week off and are ready for our final term in key stage one. This week we have been doubling and halving two digit numbers. It has been a little bit tricky but we have some real persisitent children who didn't give up.
We have also planted some been seeds to watch how they grow and trying to find out if seeds will grow with out soil and light. We cannot wait to see what happens there.
Massive well done to class 2 these last 2 weeks. they have also been doing SATS tests and I am very proud of how they have worked and completed them. They have done an amazing job, even though they had no idea they were doing SATs.
We have been doing some science work on habitats and food chains this week, understandinig where our food comes from too. We watched a video of how we get cheese from the milk from cows. Some of the children were amazed by this.
We have had a very busy week in class 2 for our first week back. We have been learning about division in our numeracy sessions and how it can be related to multiplication too. This week was also our first art session with Mrs Taylor. She was amazed at our skills and how brilliant we were in class. Miss Beecher and Mrs Cunningham were very proud.
In class 2 this Tuesday we had a visit from Steve and Ryan from Rawmarsh CLC. We had an amazing day with them programming and coding with the sphereos and drones, then we created our own poster using Comic Life on the ipads.
This week we have been learning more about jungle animals. We have reseached their life cycles and much more about their habitats too. We have tried to find the life cycles of different animals such as meerkats, snakes and one group even did a pirhana.
Did you know that a baby snake is called a snakelet, and a baby prihana is called a fry?
We researched tigers too and what their measurements are. We all drew one outside the classroom on the wall, we hoped we wouldn’t get told off for it but Mrs Birch was fine about it.
We also had a visit from a real life footballer. The children had fun asking him lots of interesting questions.
This week in class 2 we have been very busy. We had a fabulous day at EIS on Monday. We sprinted, did the long jump, ran 200m, played cricket, football and basketball, learned a dance, did some problem solving and ran some obstacle races. Phew!!!!
Our book day costumes were amazing, parents joined us for some reading in the morning and we did some wonderful work about Mr Twit and our favourite books.
We have begun learning about times tables and and statistics and we have made a great start with this too.

This week we have had some amazing learning in class 2. We have had a brilliant science lesson outside, discovering things that are alive, have been alive and have never been alive. Even Mrs Birch came out and joined in. It's amazing what we have found!
Our numeracy lesson this week was tough, but we have persevered and challenged ourselves and been very successful.

Another eventful week in class 2. We have been writing about the animals that we saw at the Wildlife Park, we have researched some very interesting facts about Meerkats, Lions, Polar Bear and Giraffes, for exmaple. did you know that a giraffe's tongue is up to 21 inches long? Also did you know that a polar bear's fur is actually transparent and their skin is black? So much information.
We have also been learning about Chinese New year, and even had a taste of some crackers and had a fortune cookie too.
A very special treat was to visit the Star dome we had in school this week too. We learnt so many facts about Space, even Miss Beecher was able to learn new things too. She was very suprised to learn that Saturn's Rings are actually water and ice.
