Your learning challenge for today is linked to the 3D shape work that we have been doing this week. I would like you to create 3D shapes out of resources that you can find at home or in your garden. For example, with marshmallows and sticks like the picture below or with sticks and blue tac. Can you also write a description of the shapes you have created including the number of faces, edges and vertices please?
In Year 2 we have been reading all of the books that have been entered into the picture book category of the Rotherham Book Awards. After reading 'Herman's letter' we wrote a letter back to his best friend Henry. We have all created and described a new monster to join the zoo in 'Do not enter the monster zoo!' and we have also written book reviews for our favourite one. If you scroll down to the Summer term 1 photo album you might find some of our book reviews to read.
We have cast our votes and you can see for yourselves that in our eyes, the winner of the Rotherham book Awards should be Do Not Enter the Monster Zoo!
Can you use your data handling skills to answer these questions about our bar chart below?
- Which book was the most popular?
- Which book was the least popular?
- How many children preferred 'Herman's Letter'?
- How many children took part in the survey altogether?
Wow! Year two have produced some fantastic home learning about nocturnal animals over half term. Have a look in our spot tray area where you will find some of their fact files.
Dance showcase at Wales High School
Well done to all of the children who took part in the dance and gymnastics festival at Wales High. You did a great job and should be feeling very proud of yourselves!

Which superhero are you?
Spring term 1 topic
On Friday 10th January the Year 1 and Year 2 children became a superhero for the day. They made super energy bars and superhero masks, they took part in superhero PE and wrote some fantastic descriptions of the character they were dressed as.
In Y2 we have begun learning how to sew. Mrs Eddershaw came in to visit us and helped us make a superhero finger puppet each. Take a look at the pictures below!

This year enterprise is based on 'Going Gaming!' so all classes have been busy creating games this week. In Year 2 we have set up a company called Harthill Hollywood Bowl. We have split up into five teams to create our own bowling alley; skills assessment team, accounts team, design team, sales team and manual team.
We have focused on teamwork and positive attitudes this week. The skills assessment team have seen lots of teamwork every day and we even received a special award from Mrs Williams! We have shown positive attitudes towards our challenge this week too.
