Welcome to our class page
The children have had a wonderful visit to St Matthew and St Luke's Church in Darlington. We followed the star on the Christmas journey. First we met the storyteller who told us how God had created the world and how it had been destroyed. We then met Mary baking bread where she was visited by Angel Gabriel. Some of the children dressed as shepherds and we then visited the talking animals in the stable, with baby Jesus. After that some of the children dressed up as Wise Men. Finally we visited the story teller again, who told us that God gave his only son Jesus to make the world a better place.
I am very proud of Class2G. Their behaviour and good manners were excellent throughout the whole visit. Well done!
In science this week, the children used magnifying glasses to observe different types of seeds. They noticed the size, shape and colour of the seeds and then drew them.
The children planted some bulbs in our school flowerbeds. We discussed how some bulbs lay dormant over the winter months. We are looking forward to seeing them grow in the spring.
This week the children have written their own similes about fireworks. They then wrote wonderful shape poems using the similes. Some of the children read their poems to the class.
Here is the homework for this half term.
This week in English we have been looking at instructions. We recorded the features of instructional texts and learnt about imperative verbs. Yesterday, the children made a picture with a sliding mechanism so that they could tell a story about Percy the park keeper. They then wrote their own set of simple instructions for others to follow.
Last week as part of our science work on microhabitats, we went for a walk around our school grounds. We searched for evidence of minibeasts living in the area. We looked around the flower beds, under the logs, rocks and bushes. We found cobwebs, snail shells, woodlice, worms, spiders, a slug, a bee and a ladybird.

Bowes Museum Visit
The children had a wonderful visit to Bowes Museum today. This morning, they looked at pottery, paintings, the Silver Swan and also saw some of their own art work displayed. Then this afternoon, they took part in a craft session where they made a small wooden doll, We found out about the history of the Bowes family and how the Museum began. Their engagement and behavior throughout the whole day was fantastic.
Well done 2G
This week the children developed their map reading skills by studying a map of Middleton St George. They used simple compass directions to describe the location of familiar features.
This is what we have been up to!
This week the children have investigated changing the shape of materials.
