Welcome to Wallaby!
I am Mrs Sanderson, class teacher of this incredibly friendly, hard working class of Year 2 children!
Keep checking back on our page to see what we have been learning!
The children began their day with an assembly, where they listened to the choir sing 'Amazing Grace' and 'Let is shine'. They then spend an hour as a phase, working with the choir learning the song and actions to 'Let it shine' before having a 'sing off' to see who's version was the best! At the end of the day, we had a whole school assembly where the children came together to perform the songs that they had worked on throughout the day to create one HUGE concert!
'Today was awesome' (William)
'That was fabulous!' (Raysa)
'I loved it when they all sang different parts' (Levi)
The children in Wallaby raised money for Children in Need by having a non-uniform day!
In star assembly the children learnt about where the money raised is spent and how important it is those receiving it.
This half term, in topic, we are learning about castles! We have learnt the different features of a castle and why they were important. We used this knowledge to begin to build our own model of a castle, using the appropriate features, from junk! Today we began to select what junk we wanted to use and discuss the best materials that we wanted to use.
'We could use this egg box to make the draw bridge because it moves up and down.'
NRM Locomotion, Shildon Visit
On Thursday 24th October 2019, Year 2 visited Locomotion, Shildon as part of their 'Journeys' topic! The children excitedly travelled by coach and were keen learners throughout the day. We took part in a tour of the museum, made our own locomotive and looked at artefacts from the railways. We were able to touch a piece of coal (It was heavy!) and we saw, and got to wear, the hats that the engine drivers would have worn! We had a fantastic day and learnt lots!
Australiasia Mini Topic
As part of our mini topic, we have focussed our learning on New Zealand. We have spent a lot of time looking at where New Zealand is in the world and some of the traditions. We have also researched our class animal - the Wallaby! We found out some fantastic facts before we wrote a non-chronological report about wallabies.
