Class 2- Homework Talk

Class 2 were issued with a new homework project this week to write and deliver a talk to the class. The children should base their talk on someone who inspires them.

The homework task is a 4 week project.  The children may use the timetable guidelines below to ensure they produce a quality piece and manage their time effectively.

Wk1 – Discuss with parents/ carers and form a list of possible people who they may choose.

Wk2 – confirm their chosen person and begin researching some background facts about the person.

Wk3 – begin to write and give opinions about why you have chosen your person.

Wk4 – rehearse your talk. It should be between 2-3 mins. Use your homework sheet to meet your success criteria.

Good luck everyone.

Final February Five Star Gold Award

Congratulations were in order today for Archie, Daniel and Skye- this week’s Five Star Gold Award Winners.

Archie and Daniel received their awards for showing determination and great team work when coding the BBC microbit with Evelyn.

Meanwhile, Skye got the award for impressing Mrs Reid last week during her numeracy session. Skye used her number skills to work out some tricky problems involving money.

Well done to all three winners!


BBC Microbit session

Class 2 had a super session with Evelyn today learning about the BBC microbit. The children enjoyed using block code to make a game of rock, paper and scissors.

She has even left a few with us so we can continue to develop our coding skills.  We hope to showcase some of these new skills at our STEM evening in March.

Well done boys!


No Toast- Friday

Mrs Beattie is out of school undertaking some science training on Friday. Class 2 will be taken by Mrs Reid and Mrs Shepherd.  Therefore, there will be NO toast on Friday.

Class 2 will have tennis as normal and I believe this will be the last week.
