Term 5- Killer Cat

Our book for this term is Killer Cat. The children are enjoying the story so far and find it extremely funny as Tuffy, the main character is quite the little rascal! So far the children have used adjectives to describe the characters and began to ask questions about the text. Recently, the children have explored the features of a non-chronological report, to enable them to write their own.

 

Mr Majeika

Today went finished our story Mr Majeika. We went outside and listened to the last remaining chapters as it was such a beautiful day! Most children rated the book at least an 8/10. We discussed the parts of the story we enjoyed and the parts we disliked. We spoke about how nice it would be if there were sequel books. Apparently, there are 6 sequel books and so we thought we could research into finding them. 

Term 4 - MR MAJEIKA 

During Lockdown 3.0 we started our book Mr Majeika. The children responded to the book really well over the live lessons. We have continued the book in class and the children are currently writing their own stories with a problem.

In class Mrs Unsworth and Mr Foley tricked the children ( and Mrs Bradley) into thinking there was a flood in the school hall. The children truly believed that their school hall was flooded and we needed to evacuate. The children immediately started to think of solutions to the problem. They suggested we called a plumber, phoned the emergency services and get a pipe repair kit. The children soon found out it was an excellent drama performance. We explained to the children we had given them a very quick role play performance to writing their own stories. We had created a Setting ( Bapchild School) Characters ( Year 2 children, Mrs Unsworth, Mr Foley and Mrs Bradley) A Problem ( the school hall had flooded) and some solutions to the problem. The children when on to create their own drama performances thinking of their own problems they could use for their own stories. Here are there freeze frame shots.

Our Book Corner

This term our book corner is linked to our topic of materials. We have given our book area in class a little update. We have tried to make this area topic related and a place where children can use the facts books to find out more information about their topic. We have different materials available for the them to experiment with too. We linked the area to the three little pigs, as in science we will be experimenting which material is best to make the pig’s house waterproof. The book area has reading for pleasure books as well as topic related books. We have also started a class library where the children can sign books in and out freely to take home and return. These are separated into fiction and nonfiction books.

The Day The Crayons Quit

Year 2 have enjoyed this story. They have worked hard writing letters to their chosen crayon pretending to be Duncan. 

The day Year 2’s Cheeky Chairs Quit!!!

Last Friday Year 2 came into class and were shocked to find their chairs were gone. They had nowhere to sit to do their work. Year 2 thought about the 5 W’s. Who? What? When? Where? Why? The class thought of reasons why their chairs may have quit, could they be similar to the reasons why Duncan’s Crayons quit? Year 2 are collecting information from Friday morning to write their own newspaper reports.
