The Week that was ...

Published Friday, March 01, 2013.

Although this week has only contained 4 days, we have managed to fit a lot in! 

At the beginning of the week, we started to look at poetry, and the children used the iPads with Mr. Andy to go on a Poetry Walk. The teachers have all read a poem of their choice and then, using an iPad App called Aurasma, have been recorded. This has made an "Aura" which the children have been able to watch and listen to whenever they have pointed the iPads at the poems in the Year 2 corridor. As you can imagine, they have really enjoyed listening to different styles of poetry being read by their teachers.

One of the poetry styles we have used to write our own poems in has been Acrostic Poems. The children were wonderful and managed to write at least one each! Here is one for you to read, written by Ken:

Pirates like to kill people for treasure.

Lonely pirates sail their ships with no one!

A pirate knows how to use coordinates on a map.  

New pirates don't know how to act like mean and nasty pirates.

Kind pirates don't steal treasure, they protect treaasure and fight bad pirates.

Data Handling has been the focus in our Maths sessions this week. We have collected data, collated it, drawn graphs about it and then answered questions about it. We have also sorted it using complicated Venn diagrams with 3 circles! The children have done a great job.

At the end of the week, we all went into the Theatre to watch a preview showing of the "Race to the Treasure" Pirate DVD that many parents have bought a copy of. The children enjoyed seeing themselves on the big screen and all joined in with the finale. It was a lovely way for them to 'see' the show for the first time!

We look forward to seeing lots of you at the Patana FUN DAY tomorrow - it is one of the biggest events on the school calendar and there is always lots to do and see.

Have a great weekend.


Kind regards,

Mr. M.

The following photos show the children in the theatre - having a great time as the audience!

2S Superstars on Show!

We had a wonderful Sports Day, which the children thoroughly enjoyed! They were able to showcase all of the skills they had learned in their PE lessons over the course of this year and did a really good job of encouraging each other in each of the activities. It was fantastic to see the way in which they had a go at every event and loved their successes.

Our Chinese New Year Assembly last Friday (the 8th of February) was a wonderful occasion, which the children thoroughly enjoyed. It was an excellent way to bring the half term to a close.

Have a wonderful week with family and friends - I look forward to seeing you all back in school on Monday 18th February.


Kind regards,

Mr .M.
