Chaffinches - Year 2

Welcome to Chaffinch Class.

The first term has got off to a great start with our theme 'Walk the Plank.' The children have taken part in a pirate-tastic launch day and are very much looking forward to the exciting times ahead.

Look out for our first piece of homework coming home on Friday.

What an amazing RE lesson!

Today in Religious Education we were thinking about how Christians say thank you for creation. We decided that one way was to say grace before meals. We made up our own thank you prayers to say before meals and performed them to the class. Some groups even sang them or made them rhyme. Over the next few weeks we will choose different thank you prayers to say before lunch.

 

 Well done everyone for a super lesson.

What amazing homework! The children worked so hard on their pirate ships and here are just some of the amazing work that was produced! Well done.

As part of our topic we made pirate ships. We then made predictions about if they would float or sink and tested them outside. We had great fun!

We wrote messages pretending to be one of Blackbeard's crew marooned on an island. We put them into bottles, hoping people will find them!
