Wren

Welcome to our new Wren Class page...
Please find below the Knowledge Organisers for Summer Term 1 which will show you what we are learning about.
Week ending 13th May
In science the children have been blown away this week through the discovery that the largest desert on earth is Antartica! It really fired up their curiosity and lead to them asking lots of their own questions. Their ability to use chalk and charcoal to create highlights and shadows has been developed through further work on the minotaur and they have loved creating a stop motion animation using iPads in computing. In RE we have been learning about The holy Qu'ran. We're always busy learning in Year 2!
This week please support your child to read as much as possible and talk about what they have read. 
Could you also support them in telling the time (analogue). 
Select your level of challenge 1. telling o'clock and half past times
                                                     2. telling quarter past and quarter to times
                                                     3. telling times in 5 minute interval past the hour and to the hour
We've only had a four-day week but it's certainly been a busy one! We have explored how Picasso used eye shapes to show the characteristics of the Minotaur from the classic Greek myth, Theseus and the Minotaur and used what we found out to produce our own sketches. We then drew on this, and our own imaginations, when we wrote a character description for a new 'beast' which will feature in a story that we'll write next week. Our visit to forest school in science last week helped us to write about microhabitats as we continue to improve our writing skills.
 
We also had a special visitor in Wren Class on Wednesday when Miss Donnelly came to see us. She helped us learn more about our RE topic of Islam. We have been finding out about where Muslims worship, what Muslims believe and about their prophet. 
 
We are pleased to welcome Miss Donnelly back to class from Monday 9th May. She will be teaching in the mornings and Mrs Kansu will be teaching in the afternoons for next week.
