Welcome to the Double Basses class!
We are a class of 18 Year 2 children who enjoy every opportunity to work and play together. We share a classroom with Mrs Bruzzese, Mrs Wright and Mrs Bridge.
Our P.E lessons are on Tuesday and Friday, and sometimes on a Wednesday, so we need to make sure that our P.E kit is in school on these days. On Wednesday afternoon Mrs Bruzzese lends us to Mrs Wright and Mrs Bridge for the afternoon and we learn about ourselves and working together.
As a part of our Wednesday afternoon work we can bring something along for Show and Tell. We need to bring something which is important to us or special so that we can stand up and talk about it to our friends. This really helps us to practice our speaking and listening skills.
We try to read a few pages of our books every night so that we can become 'Super Readers!' and change our books ourselves when we have finished them. Our spelling homework is given out on a Friday and we have our spelling test on Friday morning each week. We each have a login for Timestable Rockstars to play games and learn our times tables.
We have an exciting year ahead and we look forward to learning lots of new things...
Wow Science Day 11.9.19
On Tuesday we enjoyed an exciting day! We watched an assembly with lots of bangs, pops and dry ice! We spent our day exploring bubbles. We made lava lamps, bubble snakes and Mento volcanos! We used vinegar and baking powder to inflate a balloon without our breath! We made water climb up our jar and made a candle float! Wow, what a day!
We went onto the field and looked for signs of the changing seasons.
The Place Where I live...
Our class went on a walk to Carr Lane playground to investigate the local area. We followed a map and drew sketches of the playground equipment to use in our art lessons next week.
We came back to school and looked around our school to find clues as to how old the building might be. We found chimneys, but no fires, boys and girls doors and different patterns of bricks. We were excellent detectives!
We then looked at old and new toys. We watched Magic Grandad who taught us all about toys in the 1950s. We investigated toys using our history skills and put them in a timeline.
We are authors!!
Over the last few weeks we have been studying the story of The Jolly Postman by Allan Ahlberg. We have created our own stories using his story as a guide. Some of our stories have been published on Pobble!
Please enjoy reading our stories!
The History Of The Place Where I live
Today we went on a treasure hunt to find out what we were going to learn about.
Then we began to write about our school in the past.
Printing in the style of Edward Bawden
Edward Bawden used printing techniques to create wallpaper. We drew simple shapes, using our sketches from our local walk, onto Quickprint. We used a ballpoint pen to press our design into the Quickprint, rolled paint on using a foam roller and pressed on really hard!
We hope you enjoy some of our work.
Hello Yellow...Mental Health Day 2019
Today we learned about looking after our mental well being. We created a well being calendar with ideas for each day to improve our own and everyone else's mental well being.
We created worry monsters, made yellow biscuits, created yellow masks and designed well being superheroes! We made enough biscuits for everyone to share and even sent some helpers around school to share our happiness with others. During the morning we even had a disco and did the Conga through the library!
