Autumn 1 Learning - 2018

What a great start to Year 2!

We started with drama, by acting out living our Golden Rules at St. Teresa’s. Father Dominic has been in to see us twice for Rejoice sessions. He showed us the Monstrance and then taught us many interesting facts about St. Teresa. Many thanks to Father Dominic for the Rosary Beads. The children enjoy this calm part of our day, praying the rosary together.

The children have shared their Summer Reading Challenge Awards in assembly. Dressing up for Roald Dahl Day was great fun! We really enjoyed sharing The Enormous Crocodile story. We are still waiting to hear about our entries to the Poetry competition.

In Maths we have been ordering numbers, working on mental arithmetic, times tables, place value and regrouping tens and ones.

We met our Year 4 Buddies and look forward to seeing them again soon. We really enjoyed our trip to the R.A.F. museum and working on our Remembrance Day poppy.

Mr. Lofting came and showed his medal from the Chicago Marathon. Congratulations Mr. Lofting! He talked to us about his training schedule, the types of food he needed to eat and how resilience from growth mindset really helps. He then led us in our Daily Mile, which was much harder when jogging!

Well done Year 2!
