This Week In Year Two
Nativity



Hey Ewe!

Taking the lead role in the Nativity is one of the highlights of being in Year Two and being a Year Two teacher and this year has been no exception. All the children were very excited when they learnt the parts that they were going to have just over three weeks ago and couldn’t wait to start rehearsals. Once we were under way there were plenty of opportunities to add their own parts into the performance, including sheep jokes and dabs! I was really impressed with how the children learnt their lines, when to come on and off stage and how they slowly learnt to make their characters come alive for the audience. All the children worked together as a fantastic team from start to finish, encouraging and supporting each other right through to the final performance.

I was so proud of each and every one of the children during our performances and could see from the smiles on their faces how proud they were of themselves too. Well done Year Two!!

Here are some quotes from Year Two about their Nativity:
I enjoyed doing the Nativity, saying my lines and being a sheep.  – Thomas T
I loved it because everyone was watching it and I really liked the angel dance – Erin
I really liked my character although it was hard to learn all the lines - Heidi
I really liked doing the Nativity because I enjoyed learning my dance and being on stage – Charlotte
When I was first on stage I was nervous but by the end I was really excited – Maddision
I liked learning my dance and lined – Charlie
I was nervous at the start of learning it the Nativity but by the end it wasn’t so bad- Jack
I was excited at the end singing Away in a Manager – Hettie
I liked learning all the songs and all the dancing – Nell

Nativity really is team effort so there are a few people Year Two and I would like to thank.

Thank you to Mr Simpson for putting up the stage and helping us with the backdrop. Thank you to Mrs Dowson, Mrs Booth and Mrs Fielden for helping with the backdrop. Thank you to Mrs Lee, Mrs Colclough and Mrs Booth for helping Reception and Year One to be a superb choir of sheep. Thank you to Mrs Ward for helping us learn all the songs and for playing the piano at our performances. Thank you to Mrs Thornton for taking photos which you can see on our class page on the website. Finally thank you to parents who came in to help with the face painting each day so that we all looked so professional on stage.

I wish you all a merry Christmas!
Mrs Bailey
Arrays

This week we have started learning about multiplication. As part of our learning we made our own arrays and found arrays in our classroom environment.

Year Two Skipping

Last Friday Year Two had a skipping morning in preparation for the Skipping Festival in February. All the children were shown and had the chance to practise a range of skills including the double bounce, side swing and face to face pair skipping. I was really impressed with how all the children persevered with their skipping skills and tried their best and we are looking forward to taking part in the competition.

It was very fun and we learnt different skipping skills.- Honour
I really enjoyed it but I found it quite difficult- Cameron
I found skipping a bit hard but I am learning it- Erin
It was quite hard but I am getting the hang of it – Ella
It was so fun my favourite skip was the side swing- Thomas T
It was really good and I liked the big skipping rope – Zack
I liked doing face to face in partners – Anum

Halloween and Bonfire Night

This week we have been exploring which materials are the most absorbent as a naughty witch spilt her potion in the classroom. We have also been reading poetry and writing our poems about Bonfire night. To accompany our poems we made fireworks pictures using salt and PVA glue to make them sparkle.

Instructions

This week we have been making marmalade sandwiches for Paddington and writing instructions to go with them. We had lots of fun.

Paddington character descriptions 

This week in English we have been writing character descriptions of Paddington Bear.
Before we wrote our own we read examples written by other children in different schools and highlighted the bits we wanted to ‘magpie’ to put in ours.

Autumn Walks

This week we have been walking around our school grounds observing all the different signs there are of Autumn. We have really enjoyed looking at the different colours on the trees and collecting different things to display in our Autumn interest tray.
