Grasshoppers Year 2

Weekly spellings - 15.3.19 














Welcome to Grasshopper class.



Our teacher is Miss Barnett and our year group TA is Mrs Pitchacaren.

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. 


In Grasshopper Class we love listening to stories as well as reading with a friend or to ourselves. This term our class book is The BFG by Rolh Dalh. We are excited to for our school trip to see this too. Grasshoppers are encouraged to read 15 minutes a day, however, on Wednesday evenings, read as much as you can! Buster's Book club minutes are recorded and we would love to win the trophy in Celebration Assembly on Friday's! 

Making our Rascally Cake recipes in the mud kitchen!

Rascally Recipes 


We had a fantastic time using adverbs to describe how we added various disgusting, deadly ingredients to our rotten mixtures.  Along with adverbs, were used adjectives and time connectives in our recipes too. 



We went to Pizza Express, where we made the most amazing pizzas! Whilst the pizzas were cooking, we tried different ingredients such as: olives, mushrooms and tomatoes. 

Towers, Tunnels and Turrets

This term Grasshoppers will be exploring a new topic, Towers, Tunnels and Turrets. 


Do you know what a portcullis is? 

What about a moat? 


Let's find out and explore loads of different text types such as leaflets, novel and information texts. 

Challenge: visit a castle and spot what materials you can see. 




We are reading Micheal Recycle in Science this term, learning about what materials can and cannot be recycled. 

Can you make a table of items you recycle in a week at home? 



In maths, we will be continue to develop our addition and subtraction skills. 

Challenge: can you achieve a medal on study zone? Login in using the details in the front of your reading record to have a try! 


We STILL love reading! 

Miss Barnett and the whole class really want to win Buster's book club trophy on Friday's. Please help by reading for as long as you can and asking an adult to sign your bookmark in the front of you reading record.
