The last few weeks the children have been busy answering their Big Question, “Is anybody out there?” We have made clay aliens, designing and evaluating our end products. We have learnt about the planets through song, fact finding and designing our own. They even created their own music to represent the planets using a range of percussion instruments.

In English, we’ve written some amazing three-part narratives about our clay aliens. The children used their new learning to include expanded noun phrases, conjunctions and really tried to remember their punctuation! Some of their fabulous pieces are displayed on the KS1 corridor.

In Maths, the children have been focusing on place value, using concrete materials and recognising the HTUs of a number. They are now moving onto using a number line to add, subtract and estimate.

It has been a fantastic start to the year and we are so proud of their hard work. They are showing brilliant independence and are rising to the high expectations of Year 2. Well done class!!
