Great Learning

We love learning all sorts of new things in Room 2. This is just a few things we have done this term.

Be safe at Guy Fawkes

It was a great idea of the bigger students to share their firework safety presentations with us. Everyone liked sharing their learning and felt safer about sharing what they have learnt with their families when doing fireworks. Mrs Millward also let us read a story online. You can read the story here.: http://www.welephant.co.uk/Bonfirestory001.htm

Guy Fawkes

The senior students came to help us learn to be safe when watching fireworks on Guy Fawkes. Thank you for helping us Teinera.

Firework Safety with Candice

Candice came to our class to help us learn about being safe at Guy Fawkes. It was fun having her share and help us. I hope she comes again.

Math - sink or float

In math we had water play and we were learning about what objects float and what objects sink. Light objects float and heavy objects sink. We had to write down the first phoneme for the object that sank and the object that floated. It was fun!

Another collage by Smilebox
We read the story How the kiwi lost his wings and made the forest that no other bird wanted to look after. This is how we made them. We painted half of a page green and the other half brown. We had to paint both sides.This was done to 5 pieces of paper. Mrs Millward showed us how to roll the paper and add a new sheet of paper half way through. Then we cut the top into strips and made it curly. The last part was to pull the inside out to make our tall forest trees.

Thursday, September 6, 2012

We are learning all about myths and legends. In maths we decided to use all the things we know to make wings just like in the story Icarus and the sun. We watched a movie and listened to the story. Then we had to think about how we could measure, the shapes we know and what half is to make the wings. To decorate we used a pattern with colours and had to remember that the one wing should look the same as the other.
It was fun making our Icarus wings.

Keep Trying.


Our shared book was all about working hard and never giving up. We read the story about Keep Trying by Jane Buxton. We think the athletes at the olympics worked very hard and never gave up.

Our class had to look for different shapes at the olympics. My teacher told us about 2D and 3D shapes. These are some of the shapes we saw and made.

The Olympic Race poem


Last week our poem was all about taking part in the olympics. We had to pretend we were standing in a stadium. It was fun learning this poem.

We have a mini olympics everyday before we go home. The winner gets to take a gold medal home.

They have different sports at the olympics. It is about trying to be the best.


There is so much to learn about the Olympics! I know all the colors that are in the rings.
