This week, during English lessons, we have been learning about Cinquain poems. This type of poetry uses syllables in a pattern of 2, 4, 6, 8, 2 and is written in five lines in the shape of a diamond. The children have worked together to write, rehearse and perform their own Cinquain poem linked to Spring and Easter. We hope you enjoy the poems.

Geography - Fieldwork
Today we used our new map skills to follow a simple route around our local area. The children used a key to identify human and physical features in the surrounding environment. They also improved their maps by adding on additional features they spotted. It was a lovely sunny walk!

Tuesday 15th March 2022
Today we have the pleasure of attending a zoom meeting with Dermot O'Leary to talk about his new book 'Toto and the Ninja Cat and the Legend of the Wildcat'. The children listened as Dermot talked about his new book and then got the chance to follow along with the illustrator and draw Toto! Have a look at some of their amazing drawings below.
Week 2 - World Book Day
Thursday 3rd March
Today, Penguins celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as a character from a book. We have read a lot of penguin themed books in Penguins so the adults joined in and dressed up as penguins! We were absolutely amazed by the children's wonderful costumes. During the morning, we completed book related activities. The children enjoyed solving clues to find a code to open the cupboard full of book tokens. They tried very hard to solve them carefully.
Afterwards, Penguins designed their own book token for a national competition.
What a wonderful day we had!
Today we celebrated it being Tuesday 2nd February 2022 or 22.2.22 and being in Year 2! We made crowns, completed a 2x table space race, made 2x table fortune tellers and danced along to some fun songs with the number 2 in! We had lots of fun.
