Class 2 are our 'Hive of bees'. Just like bees they work hard, have fantastic teamwork and bring so many wonderful things to our world. 

In this section you will find regular updates of what we have been learning about in class and links to any home learning you might need. 

 

 

Week 7

   

   

We have made it to Christmas!  What a fantastic term we have had in Class 2.

This week we have fully embraced Christmas.  We have enjoyed the Christmas performance, Christmas fair, Christmas dinner and Christmas party this week!  We have also spent time in class making and decorating Christmas cards for the ones we love. 

Over the last couple of weeks Class 2 have loved making bunting, so we decided for our decorations we would have to incorporate our sewing skills.  All of Class 2 have worked really hard to make a hanging gingerbread man to take home for their tree.  They all look fabulous!

Thank you for a great term and have a well-earned rest this Christmas!

Merry Christmas from Miss Haigh. J

Week 6

     

  

We have started to see Christmas creeping into Class 2 a bit more this week. At the start of the week we had lots of fun making Christingles and attending the Christingle service in the hall.  Class 2 certainly enjoyed singing ‘Sing Christingle!’

We finished our bunting this week! It is now hanging, pride of place across our classroom.  We had some bumps along the way with tricky material and threading needles but we persevered and have a lovely end product.  Well done Class 2!

We have also had great fun learning some Christmas dances in PE.  We can’t wait to show off our dance moves at the Christmas party next week.

Here is our celebration bee for this week, who has been their Birdsedge Best! 

Week 5

  

 

Another week has flown by!  Yet again Class 2 have been busy bees. 

This week in Science we have been using magnets to create a game where the pieces are moved using magnets!  The children worked hard to design and make their games.  Next week we will be trying out our games and evaluating them.  Super work!

As part of our Home Front topic we have been learning about how people used to make do and mend.  As part of this we have imagined that we have gone back in time to VE day and want to decorate our school using bunting.  In order to do this we have had to use our sewing skills to repurpose old bits of material.  We can’t wait to have the finished product hanging across our classroom.

Week 4

  

 

This week we have been busy bees in Class 2.  We started the week by learning new vocabulary linked to the Blitz.  The children worked hard in pairs to match up words, pictures and their definitions.  They found it hard at the start of the week, but by Friday they were experts!

We have also been working on our Makaton in class.  We have done so well with ‘You’ve got a friend in me’ that we have now started to learn ‘Starry night’. 

A final picture I have included this week is of our topic homework display.  Well done to everyone who has completed a project on WW2 at home.  I have been so impressed with the effort taken.  I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the projects next week.

Week 3

  

  

This week we have been looking at magnets in Science.  We have been exploring the different materials to find out which are magnetic and which are not.  Did you know that some metals are not magnetic? 

We have also had our first ukulele lessons this week!  Thank you to everyone who has sent in a ukulele. We learnt four new songs; ‘My dog has fleas’, ‘Hey you’, ‘A sailor went to sea’ and ‘Row row row your boat’.

Here is our celebration bee for this week, who has been an inspirational role model!
