Goldilocks character profiles

This week, some of the year 2 children will be writing a character description about Goldilocks. They read the version written by Lauren Child, which is slightly different to the traditional tale of Goldilocks that they have read already.

Before writing this, they were asked to create a character profile plan using lots of different adjectives from a previous online lesson.

I was very impressed with their full sentences, beautiful handwriting and use of commas to separate their listed adjectives.

I’m really looking forward to reading your character descriptions at the end of this week children!

Wanted posters

Some children in Year 2 have read the story of Goldilocks by Lauren Child this week.

This is a slightly different version to the traditional Goldilocks tale.

I asked the children to create their own Wanted poster about this version of Goldilocks.

I was overwhelmed with how accurately some of the children used commas in their posters to separate the adjectives they chose to describe Goldilocks.

As you can see, Elliott L and Oliver J wrote so neatly on their paper at home. There were lots of different adjectives to describe Goldilocks’ physical appearance and personality.

Excellent work boys!

Artists at home

It has been fantastic to receive lots of pictures from the children of their drawings that they have been working on at home.

We definitely have some future artists!

Some of these drawings have been made from following on online art tutorial. You have been so creative Year 2!

Christmas performance 2020

This morning, we recorded our songs, dance and poem for our class Christmas performance, which will be part of the whole school video going live next week.

Year 2 have made me one proud teacher with their enthusiasm to perform.

Below are some pictures from our rehearsals in the hall.

We cannot wait for you all to see what we have ready for you!

Enrichment homework projects from Autumn 1

Last half term, I set the children a research task for their first homework enrichment project. They had to do some research about the famous inventor Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the telephone.

I was absolutely overwhelmed by how much effort and enthusiasm Year 2 children had put into completing this task at home. They also gained lots of new knowledge about the famous inventor.

It was up to them how they presented their research, with some children making posters and others making fact files to name a few.

Below are some pictures of some of the children’s research projects that were emailed in. Well done to you all!

Here is Oliver’s poster of Alexander Graham Bell.
Oliver put lots of effort into presenting his research on a poster, with the facts written in the shape of a telephone.
Elliott chose to present his research on a poster. He made such an effort to write down his research so neatly and in full sentences.
