Freeing the butterflies

We have been very excitedly watching our caterpillars grow over the last 2 weeks! 

They came to us at a length between 5 to 7mm and this weeks are about that wide and twice as long (Tiger classes biggest was almost 3cm)!

We have discussed the life cycle of a butterfly and are aware that soon they will become chrysalis's, we are all very excited to watch and record the growth of the caterpillars over the coming weeks, some of them have already formed string inside of their special containers, since they've eaten so much food.

Pictures will be posted of our special butterfly homes when they are ready to leave their chrysalis.

This week has been very exciting, learning about inverse operations and developing our understanding of how to check our answers in Maths. 

In EPIC we have continued to explore the rainforest, having a good grasp of all the wildebeests we are looking in a new story- a jungle adventure!

We are especially excited for the end of this week when we have our lovely parents visiting to help create our shoe-box dioramas (which you've so generously sent in!) to show what we have learnt about the rainforest so far.

Thank you for all of your support and the reading you do with your children, they've worked really hard this term to be the best they can be!

This week has been very exciting, we've been practicing our £'s and pence and learning even more about the rain forest, discussing how we can protect it and what lives within it! 

Zoolab came to Year 2 and showcased some incredible rain forest animals from all around the world including a frog, corn snake, giant snail, and a scorpion! This was followed by a storyteller to furthur inspire us.

We finished the week with a bang celebrating World Book Day in a fantastic array of characters!

Thank you for all of your help towards making this week so exciting.

This week and last we have been practicing our Arithmetic and Reasoning ability in Maths and continuing our exploration of "The Great Fire of London" in an immersive story reading, writing and acting! 

Next half-term we will be learning more about money, adding and taking different types of coins. I'm sure they would like to practice this at the shops! Also, our Topic is expanding into "The Jungle is Massive" in which we are looking into the rain-forest!

Thank you for a wonderful half-term full of exciting fearsome fires. 

Year 2


Our Year 2's have had an excellent start to the year, exploring Fairy Tales in Epic (English and Topic combined!) with stories like Hansel and Gretel that led them on an adventure through the woods, and Billy Goats Gruff which saw them build their own bridges.

In Autumn our Topic, "P-P-P-Pick up a Penguin" really took off, helping us explore Antarctica and think like a penguin. We've drawn and written our own stories, making our own clay igloos and penguin friends.

Last half-term our "Fearsome Fires" Topic started with dangerous dragon stories, even making dragon eggs, and moved through to facts about English history. We have also looked at how 3D shapes are made!

We have really enjoyed our Topic "Butterfly Bedlam!" since we had REAL caterpillars living at school, we measured their rapid growth and have today released them as butterflies! We have introduced some new vocabulary surrounding these delicate creatures.

Our Values shine brightly in every classroom and our walls reflect the hard work we have done so far!
