Our topic this term in DINOSAURS.
The whole school curriculum skills focus is now DT and British Values.
This half term, we will be exploring how and why Mary Anning is one of our BRITISH HEROES. As we get closer to our Charmouth visit, we will be finding out more out her and the work that she did to help us understand more about Dinosaurs. We are very lucky to live on the JURASSIC COAST, so we're looking forward to exploring this more!
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN YOUR PERMISSION FOR THE TRIP AND PAID YOUR £4 TOWARDS ENTRY TO THE HERITAGE CENTRE.
During this time, please do feel free to add to our classroom exploring areas with artefacts, toys and books that you might have at home. Please do ensure that they are named so that we can return them!
Look out for our persuasive writing displays! Last term, we had the opportunity to consider our Rights Respecting properly with our African theme. The children were really able to put this into context when we studied Article 24. They felt so strongly about the injustice of how some African children do not have the same opportunities as us. The children have written letters to important people to show their concern. We are so proud of their writing- we hope you are too. What fabulous citizens of they world they will become! (Article 24 (health and health services) Every child has the right to the best possible health. Governments must provide good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food, and a clean environment and education on health and well-being so that children can stay healthy. Richer countries must help poorer countries achieve this.)
This page will be updated every month. We endeavour to keep you as up to date as possible and will also communicate via ParentMail. This term will be a busy one; especially with arrangements for Special Agents Training School. If you have any concerns or queries, do contact any of the team via the usual methods please and not social media.
My FUN blog.
This month, Bella is trying to get her computer badge for BROWNIES. Here is her blog to show you what she's been up to recently.....!
Hi my name is Bella.
Year 2 is really FUN!
Our topic is dinosaures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We have a book of the month it is called 'Lost and Found.' and it's written by Oliver Jeffers.
How many characters are in the book?
Dino Dig Day.
We made poo, footprints, eggs, teeth and bones out of saltdough. We went to the sandpit and found old dinosaur objects like a paleantologist (scientist who explore ecxtinked things). Lets see us having fun!
(also for Bella's brownie badge; she has learnt how to upload photos, so she has put these on our website! Mrs Stiles x
