September 2021 - Meet the Teacher Meeting

In Geography, we have been learning about our local area. We loved building Southmoor in groups and trying to place local landmarks on the maps we had made!

It has been so lovely getting to know all the children in Cherry Class this term. We started our Jolly Postman topic with a visit from our local postman, our year 2 children absolutely loved it! They were so excited to ask him all about what his job involves and how early he has to wake up in the morning.

Here are some snippets of learning from this term:

English

We have really enjoyed reading and learning about 'The Jolly Postman' by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. In particular looking at the different types of mail people might send and receive. One of our writing focuses this term has been informal letter writing, we wrote letters to our local postman before walking to our nearest post pox to post them to him.  

 

Maths

During this term we have been practising our place value by partitioning numbers into tens and ones. We have enjoyed using a range of manipulatives to help us understand what these numbers look like. We have also been counting in groups of 2's ,3's and 5's.

Harvest

We really enjoyed learning and performing 'October Party' poem during our Harvest assembly. This lead on to us exploring and writing our own acrostic poems. During our art lessons we have looked at colours and how we can use these to create masks for the characters in the poems. We have also thought about harvesting food, which lead us to making some amazing observational drawings of oranges. Have a look at the tones Cherry Class managed to create with drawing pencils...
