The children have been investigating the Jewish festival of Sukkot. As part of the festival they found out that as part of the celebration Jewish people build sukkahs or temporary shelters. Here are some of the sukkahs that the children made using a variety of resources.
The children have been busy in their mantle groups performing a range of Jack and the beanstalk themed songs and rhymes.
Children have enjoyed looking at the work of
artist Paul Klee. They used their Welsh language skills to describe the colours and shapes they used in their own interpretations of ‘Castles in the Sun’
The children enjoyed a variety of activities to support them in learning their spellings.

This work can also be completed if our class bubble has to be closed. More work will be posted within 72 hours of the closure.
Mathematics and Numeracy
- Collect a range of different sized sticks in your garden. Can you measure them in standard units such as centimetres? Can you measure them in non-standard units i.e using pieces of pasta to measure?
- Can you draw around your hand? Pretend it’s the giant’s hand. Estimate how many kidney beans the giant could fit on his hand?
- Can you log on to TTRockstars and practise your times tables?
- Can you practice writing your number formation 1-20?
- Can you learn your number bonds to 10? I.e. 0+10=10, 1+9=10, 2+8=10, 3+7=10, 4+6=10, 5+5=10, 6+4=10 etc.
Language, Literacy and Communication
- Write a diary – think about what it may be like to be a giant for the day. What would you do? Who do you live with? How might being a giant be different to being a child?
- Draw a picture of Jack and colour it in neatly. Think of as many different adjectives (describing words) as you can to describe Jack and write them down. Can you do the same for the giant? How are they similar and how are they different?
- Questionnaire – Think of questions that you would like to ask the giant if you were to meet him. Write each of your questions down or maybe an adult could scribe them for you. Don’t forget to use a capital letter to start your question and a question mark.
- Create a map of Jack’s village, where the house was, the market and the beanstalk.
- Could you also create a map for the land of the giant and include your own key features.
- Create your own beanstalk. It could be a painting, a collage or even a model. Be as creative as you can!
Health and Well-being
- Play a board game with a member of your family. Maybe you could create your own game?
Well, what can I say? The children certainly did come with a smile to our end of term party. The chose to play sports, build dens, make campsites or to just simply chill in the sun!
Well done to all the children who took part in todays Sports Day. You all tried your best and we are very proud of you all!
Thank you also to the friends of school for the delicious ice cream.
Year 2 children enjoying their Tric a Chlic reading.
We spent the afternoon outdoor learning. We went for a walk and in our groups we carefully picked a selection of interesting leaves. We used our classification sheet to identify the leaves.
When we came back inside, we created some beautiful pieces of artwork by painting our leaves and printing with them.
The children enjoyed using their reading skills to follow instructions of how to make a symmetrical butterfly. They chose the shapes that they were going to use and cut them out carefully.
