Welcome to the Rabbit Class page, here you will find information on all of the fantastic learning that has been happening in Rabbit Class this year!
Since we have returned from the Christmas holidays Rabbit Class have been incredibly busy both in school and at home. We have been introduced to our new class topic of ‘The greatest explorer’ and we have completed some fantastic work looking at Neil Armstrong along with designing our own space rockets! In English we have been looking at the story of Meerkat Mail. We have completed some amazing writing which we are incredibly proud of. In maths we have just started to look at money and the children have done a fantastic job at recognising the coins and notes along with counting in pounds and pence. We have shown fantastic perseverance when getting used to a new way of working and the class have really enjoyed seeing each other on TEAMS! See some pictures of our fantastic learning so far below!
What a busy start to the new term Rabbit Class have had! We have engaged in lots of different experiences across the curriculum along with celebrating bonfire night, remembrance day and children in need. For bonfire night, we were inspired by fireworks and created some fantastic art work using marbles. On remembrance day we took part in a two minute silence and also created our own wreath to place on the war memorial- the children showed fantastic maturity when discussing why this event is important. For children in need, we dressed in yellow and spotty clothes, discussed the importance of the event and created our own Pudsey bears- See some pictures of our celebrations below.
In our maths learning we have been focusing on addition and subtraction and we have been introduced to the concept of the bar model- the children have shown fantastic perseverance when being challenged with this new concept. In English we have been looking at the text of ‘The Magic Paintbrush’. The children have written some fantastic innovations of the story using some lovely adjectives and similes. In Science we have been investigating the parts of the plant and created some lovely flip books showing our learning. In computing the children have used algorithms to complete levels of the ‘Fix my factory’ game. The children worked really well together and supported each other when they got stuck. It certainly has been a busy couple of weeks! Here are some photos of the fantastic learning we have done.
As we approach the end of our first half term in Rabbit Class we have had another fun and busy couple of weeks! We have been doing some amazing learning across the curriculum and I have been really impressed by the children’s enthusiasm and perseverance when attempting new concepts. In Maths we have finished our learning on place value and began our learning on addition and subtraction- The children have worked really hard to use their knowledge of number bonds to 10 and 20 to support them in their learning. In English we have been looking at the text of ‘How to trap a storybook wolf’ and had a visit from a classroom gnome, which we created traps to catch! We are now working towards publishing our own class book of instructions. In Science we have looked at the human body and our senses and in computing we have learnt all about algorithms and created our own! We have done some fantastic art work based on UK landmarks and learnt all about the four countries of the United Kingdom and in Jigsaw we have discussed positive and negative learning behaviour and our class charter. We hope you enjoy seeing the photos of our amazing learning below.
We have had another busy couple of weeks in Rabbit Class and lots of fantastic learning has been taking place! The children have worked really hard in all areas of the curriculum and have shown a fantastic growth mindset to challenge themselves in their learning. In English we have been innovating the story of Little Red Riding Hood along with creating our own warning tales. In maths we have been learning all about place value- the children have become experts at using the language of tens and ones and showing numbers in different ways. We have also been on an autumn walk in science, explored our use of technology in computing, learnt about the Jewish new year in RE and created maps of our local area in geography- we certainly have been busy! We hope you enjoy seeing some photos of our recent learning below.
All of the children have had a fantastic start to year 2, they should feel really proud of their positive attitudes to learning and it has been fantastic to see them all show such an enthusiasm for learning new things! We have had a busy start to the year and the children have got stuck in with learning in many different areas of the curriculum. During our mark making week we spent time learning our new routines and developing our class community through lots of fun activities- we also introduced our topic of ‘Where in world are we?’ and completed some fantastic observational sketches of our school grounds. In our English we have been learning all about our text of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We have used our story map to create actions to the story along with sequencing the story events and sharing our opinions. In maths we have been learning about place value and we have shown fantastic growth mindset skills when representing numbers in different ways. We have also investigated the four seasons in science and discussed our responsibilities in Jigsaw. It certainly has been a busy first couple of weeks!
