Welcome to Grasshopper class.
Our teacher is Miss Barnett.
Welcome to our class page. Grasshoppers are keen learners and we always try our best! We are looking forward to lots of learning in Year 2!
Topic - Towers, Tunnels and Turrets
Our topic this term is Towers, Tunnels and Turrets. We have been learning about castles through the ages as well as the Channel Tunnel. We have really enjoyed using the building blocks to create different castles and forts.
Science - Materials
We have been learning about different materials, and which materials can make the best tunnels. During this term, we will be making our own castles, thinking about what materials is best to keep unwanted geusts out.
We LOVE reading!
In Grasshopper Class we love listening to stories as well as reading with a friend or to ourselves. So far we have used 'The Real Story of the Three Little Pigs' as well as 'The Tunnel' as our class books in Literacy. Next week, we will be writing our own tunnel adventure story!
Our trip to Dover Castle
We had fun at Dover Castle. We went up to the top and saw the battlements and the view - some of us could see France!
Then we out to the Education Centre where we dressed up as knights and princesses, or sat down and read a story quietly.
We've made a radio show about Dover Castle, which will be added to our class page soon.
Please see our radio page to listen to our radio broadcast about Dover Castle.
Muck, Mess and Mixtures
Don't forget to wear non-school uniform on 30th October. We will be getting messy inside and outside so don't wear anything you don't want to get messy!
Ice Painting in Art
We took our inspiration from fireworks and used melting ice-cube paints to create amazing artwork. Take a look below!
