Junaid and the magic mouse.
The little mouse did not listen to Mrs Spence. He climbed on top of the whiteboard and then began to swing on the silver shiny numberline. Suddenly he jumped on Shoaibís head . ď Aagh,Ē shouted Shoaib.
All the children screamed because he jumped on everyone. The children told him to listenand to be kind and then he remembered what Mrs Spence said.
Mrs Spence would turn him into a boy again. Shoaib said ďlím not going to be mean anymore. ď
Mrs Spence waved her wand and did a spell on him and he said ďWoW! Iím back into a boy again. ď
He was good forever and ever and he lived happily ever after.
Amaar and the magical mouse
It was a cold, windy, stormy Monday afternoon Amaar was not following the classroom rules. He was taking all Miss Fishers pencils, beads and pulling down the maths display. Then he threw the books out of the window in to the playground.
As Amaar was naughty Mrs Rehal came and put a nasty spell on him. She turned him into a dirty grey and white mouse, but the magical mouse didnít care so he ran out onto the field. When suddenly a big fat ginger cat chased him back into the classroom. Just then the mouse thought that he needed to listen to Miss Fisher and stop breaking the classroom rules. So he sat quietly and did is told and Mrs Rehal turned the magical mouse back into Amaar. From that day on would Amaar was the best he could be and never got into trouble again.
Asim and the magic mouse.
Once upon a time a tall boy called Idris came to school. He was very naughty and pulling peoples hair. Then the scary witch turned him into a furry mouse and then he ran onto the wall and jumped onto the teacherís head. Then he went to the Headteacher and he was told off so he hid in the spooky cupboard and nibbled Miss Browns cheese sandwich and left crumbs on the floor. Then he ran out quickly and made all the children scream loudly because he jumped onto the teachers hand.
Magical mouse stories.
We have used the idea of the story "Beauty and the Beast" and we are writing our own stories about a magical mouse. We have been trying to use adjectives, adverbs and connectives to make our sentences really interesting. In ICT we have been using Microsoft word to publish our work. Here is the beginning of some of our stories.

We have really enjoyed making beasts out of clay. In science we have been working on changing materials, so we have been interested to see that the clay was soft when we made our Beasts, but that now it is hard.
Today we have painted our Beasts and now they look really scary!
Beauty and the Beast.
We all went to the West Yorkshire Playhouse to see "Beauty and the Beast." Lots of parents and family came with us and everyone really enjoyed the show.
We have been doing some writing and making sure that we think and talk before we write. We have been writing super sentences, by making a word web first, so we have plenty of ideas to help us. Our sentences are super sentences because we have tried to use lots of adjectives and connectives to join two ideas together. We have also been learning about speech marks and using Word to print our work out on the computer.
Enjoy our work... how hot are our sentences?
Learning our 2x, 5x and 10x tables.
We have been working very hard learning our 2x, 5x, and 10x table. We have been singing fun songs, using bead strings, number squares, numicon, waving our hands and eating kit kat biscuits! Look at the super posters and displays we have made to help us remember our tables.
This week we have all enjoyed finding out what Sudoku is. We learnt how to play the game and them made word webs with lots of ideas to help us write an explanation of Sudoku. We tried to make super sentences using connectives, like and or because. We also tried to make our writing interesting by using adjectives. Have a look at some of our super sentences.
Anti bullying / Friendship posters.
We worked together in our rainbow groups, and with the help our some of our mums too, we made these super posters to remind us to be friends with everyone. These super posters are now up on display and we are trying to remember the importance of being kind to everyone.
Anti bullying / Friendship Week.
We used our computer skills to create posters on Revelation Natural Art. We have now learnt how to use a background from the clip art, change the font style and size and also flip the images used from the clip art. We are going to hang our posters up in the class room as we want to remember that friendships are important always ... not just in Anti Bullying week and we will continue to try and be friends with everyone.
How to make someone happy at school.
Anti Bullying week starts on November 19th, we have decided to focus on friendship, as we feel that if we could all be kind and friendly to each other then we would have less bullying too. We used our skills at writing instructions to think about how we could help others be happy at school.
Children in Need.
This week we have been thinking alot about "Children in Need." We made Pudsey bear lemon biscuits and enjoyed them on friday at our Teddy Bears picnic! We threaded very special 100 bead strings with a bear on it to help us in numeracy. In ICT we used Revelation Natural Art to make posters with bears in them! We have been collecting money for "Children in Need" too.
Steps to success for Instruction writing.
1. We need to use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces in sentences.
2. We need to make our writing neat so that others can read our instructions.
3. We need to try and spell words correctly - we sound out words to help us.
4. We need to make sure the title tell you what the instructions are about.
5. We need to list anything you need first.For the list we don't need numbers or full sentences. We put each thing on a new line.
6. We need to put instructions in the correct order. Number them and start each instruction on a new line.
7. We need to try and use "time connectives", like first, next and then.
8. We need to try and use some "Wow" words to make our writing interesting and exciting.
9. We must read it through and check it carefully.
Look at these instructions....
The steps to success have been used! Well done!
In Literacy we have been learning all about instructions. We have been saying, following, reading and writing instructions. We have learnt how to play marbles, written instructions for Marbles and Pass the Parcel, and followed instructions to help us make divas for Divali and also Snakes and Ladders boards for us to play with. We worked as teams to create the boards and then in Happy Hour we played the game with our friends. Some of us were not too sure about the rules, so we will have to write the instructions for playing the game and then we can also lend the boards with the instructions to our friends in Year 1.
When you enter Hovingham Primary School now, on a chilly Autumn day, you will immediately feel warmer when you see Year 2's fantastic display of our sunflower work in the entrance hall. We have finished our sunflowers models which we made with paper plates, tissue, paint and glue, and have put them together into stunning arrangements. We have put our paintings, computer pictures and sunflower poems together in our display. We have displayed the sunflowers which we made with a message on each petal of a positive action to take to make our class / school / world a better and happier place. We are all very proud of our work.
In the computer suite we learnt how to put text into our pictures on Revelation Natural Art. We decided to make some posters for Firework night to remind us all that we need to keep safe. In circle time we all thought of things we must do on Bonfire night to keep us safe. We talked about how we must stay close to our parents, or the adult who is looking after us and how we must never go near the fire or touch fireworks.
We love sunflowers!
With the class room full of vases of beautiful sunflowers we have enjoyed writing poems about them. We learnt to write poems using a repeated structure, in these peoms we started each line with the same words, and then tried to do a different last line. We had to remember to start a new line for a new sentence in our poems. We know that when we are not writing a poem we start the next sentence straight after the full stop.
More wonderful sunflowers!
We used Revelation Natural Art to paint some beautiful sunflower pictures on our computers. We used the fan brush and lots of different shades of yellow for the petals, and the circular fill tool to make the centre of the sunflower.
Our classroom is full of vases of fabulous sunflowers and today we have all enjoyed drawing, painting and do pastel pictures of them. We are going to put our pictures on display in the school entrance. We think that they will make all our visitors feel cheerful when they enter school. Click on the first image, and we hope you enjoy the slideshow of our art!
We have been busy this week reading and writing poems. We have enjoyed shaped poems, and have been writing our own rainbow poems on rainbow shapes. We worked together to think of lots of ideas that each colour of the rainbow made us think of, and then we wrote our own poems, finishing off with a wish we would make on a magic rainbow.
Wish upon a Rainbow.
It was International Peace Day on September 21st, and we thought about ways to make our class and school a peaceful place. We did a magic Rainbow Meditation, and made our beautiful rainbow collage pictures. In ICT we used our skills on Revelation Art to make a magic rainbow picture, and drew in the characters we have chosen for our story writing. We hope you enjoy looking at them, and that if you make a wish, it will come true for you.
We have made some wonderful pictures to put in our class windows. Each picture has one of our classroom rules in balloons floating across a colourful rainbow. The children took pictures of each other and helped to cut out the balloons on our Cricut Machine. Some of our Mums came in to help us make the pictures. We worked together as teams, and found that "Together everyone achieves more."
We also have made a special tree- on each leaf we all wrote something that we would do to help make our class and school special.
In Literacy we have been reading the "Golden Rules " books. We have been listening to stories about Miss Beanie's class and finding out what rules Elsa, Gino, Alfred, Zelda, Louis and Mona need to remember. We are learning the rules too and trying to follow them and be the best we can be.
We have been thinking of a sentence, then saying it, writing it and then reading it and checking that we have remembered a capital letter at the beginning and a fullstop at the end.
Numberbonds for 10.
In Numeracy we have been working very hard learning our numerbonds for 10 and we have been singing a song about a special bus, with 10 seats on it. In the computer suite we looked at the shape tools in Revelation Natural Art and used them to help us make pictures of the bus. We tried very hard to give our buses 10 windows and 10 people.....most of us did it!
Click on a picture in the gallery and it will open it up fully and then you can go through all our other bus pictures.
Welcome to Year 2.
We are all working hard and trying to be the best we can be.
We have started to learn how to create wonderful pictures using Revelation Natural Art. This week we have learnt how to change the tools. Look at the pictures we made using our names.
