Dodgeball and presents 🎁

This morning all of KS1 took part in a house dodgeball competition. This was lots of fun and we’re looking forward to seeing who the winners are next week after KS2 have played their games.

In the afternoon we opened our special deliveries from yesterday. We all inferred that our class book was about Santa and we’re excited to begin reading How Santa Really Works this term.

Smarties and a Special Delivery

In maths we recapped finding half of shapes and then we started to find half of numbers.  Some of us used Smarties to help us and it was lots of fun.

In phonics we learnt about the er suffix. We were challenged to add the suffix to different words so we really had to think about what we do to the root word first.

In English we looked at the Year 2 Common Exception Words and which ones relate to our topic. Here are some of our sentences.


In reading we had a very special delivery from the North Pole!  We had to infer what our new class book is about and then we designed what we think the front cover looks like. Tomorrow we will open them to find out.
