A big thank you to all of you who have remembered to bring your phonics folders in with you each day. A gentle reminder that it's super important to bring your phonics and reading books to school each day, so that grown-ups are able to read with you and keep helping you learn!

Last week we had so much fun re-creating The Great Fire of London! We thought we'd share some pictures of what we saw!
The houses were made from cardboard because it burns easily like wood! We crowded them together just like the houses were in 1666 and we set fire to them. We pretended that the fire was started by Thomas Farriner, who forgot to turn the oven off!
We sang "London's burning!" as we watched the fire spread quickly because of the strong wind and hot sun. We spoke about how the fire also spread at speed because of the materials the houses were made of. Just like after The Great Fire of London, all that was left of our houses was ash, rubble and mess!

Myself and Miss Norris wanted to share the fabulous learning that the children have done so far this week.
In Discovery, we have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. In class we had lots of fun re-enacting the fire starting on Pudding Lane, escaping on the river Thames in boats and feeling upset as we watched St Paul's Cathedral burn! We then had a go at putting the sequence of events in chronological order!
In maths we have been practising place value. Class 5 and 6 have been working super hard on using tens and ones to partition whole numbers!
Myself, Miss Norris and Mrs Scanlon just wanted to say a HUGE well done to each and everyone of you for your first two weeks in Y2. We are all SO impressed with how well you have all settled into your new classes and classrooms!
You should all be very proud of yourselves, as we know that it might have been a little bit nerve wracking leaving Y1! We can't wait to start sharing all the wonderful work you have been doing at school and we promise it won't be long until we do...
But for now, another HUMUNGOUS thumbs up!
