On Tuesday it was Pancake day and we had races in the playground.

On Wednesday our mums, dads and Grand parents came into the classroom to share books.

On Thursday we brought in our story boxes.

And on Friday it was our Book Week Day, we all dressed up as characters from our favourite books. Do you know who we all are?



Book Week

The first week in March was our book week.  We had lots of fun retelling the story of the Egyptian Cinderella.  We made pictures with moving parts in prepartion for making pop-up books.  On Thursday we dressed up as our favourite book characters – look how good we look.

Professor McGinty and Book Week 029

This year in Book Week we had a D.T. focus. We used our story of ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’ as the basis for our D.T. projects. We rewrote the story and typed it up each day.

Our D.T. focus was ‘Moving Books’. We learnt how to make different mechanisms for moving books before designing our own moving pages to fit in with our version of Cinderella.

We practised each mechanism before creating each page. We used a different mechanism on each page.

On Thursday we all dressed up for World Book Day- the costumes looked fantastic! This week we have been busy rehearsing for our assembly and finishing our books, we are looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday at 2:30pm.

This week at school, has been D.T. Book Week. Year 2 looked at a book by Oliver Jeffers called, The Way Back Home. In the story the small boy meets a Martian. We have been retelling the story in our special way using actions, acting out different situations the boy found himself in and doing different sorts of writing. The small boy also asked us to help him by designing and making a model of buggy he could use on the moon with the Martian. It was great fun sawing, cutting and gluing! And on World Book day we all came to school dressed as book characters. Our costumes were fantastic. We even had a few small boys, a penguin and Oliver Jeffers himself.

If you want to see what our finished moon buggies look like come along and see our assembly on Wednesday at 2.30pm.

Have a look at the pictures of our week’s activities.

World Book Day 004

During Book week we read another Oliver Jeffers story called The Way Back Home. In this story the boy travels to The Moon and makes a new friend ~ a Martian. As our Book week had a design and technology focus, we decided to design our own Moon buggies so that the boy and the Martian could travel across the moon. We had great fun making them, we had to measure, saw, glue and put them all together. Thankyou, Mrs.Harding and Mrs. Brown for coming and helping us. Have a look…

On World Book Day we all dressed up as our favourite book character, all the teachers dressed up too. Can you guess who we all are?
Don’t forget to come and watch our Book Week assembly on Thursday morning at 9.00am where we will tell you all about what we did.
