Here is some of the fabulous writing we did yesterday! As we will be visiting Year 3 on Thursday and Friday morning this week, we wont get a chance to use the computer suite to blog – so we have written our posts, and today we will illustrate them as well.
What a fantastic – and very busy week we have had! Our Gruffalo wood, looks splendid with your tree sculptures and all the members of our Gruffalo family!…. but we better let people know that the dinosaurs are coming now!
Your character descriptions were fantastic and everyone really tried their best, and remembered Mr Perfect’s tips for character writing – can you spot all the adjectives and similes we have used?
Then we took our writing to the computer suite and used Purple Mash to publish and illustrate our Gruffalo descriptions! Can you spot all the exciting vocabulary we have used?
What a great week back we have had! Everyone has really enjoyed reading the Mr Men books and with the help of Mr Perfect’s Top Tips for writing book reviews – you have all done some super work. We will make sure everyone has time to finish it off on Purple Mash and then we can put it up in the classroom and on the blog!
We all enjoyed our walk to the library. Now remember you can use your Breeze card and go there with an adult to borrow books and take them home to read. Here we are at the library!
Next week it is World Book Day on Thursday March 1st! You will all be getting a copy of a special book – ‘Winnie the Witch flies again!’ and we will all be dressing up as ‘Witches and Wizards’ for a really magical day!
My goal is to be fit and be a policeman.
Did you know the mother penguins spit out the fish? Did you know when the mumy has the egg she gives it to the dad? The dad looks after the egg for 2 months. did you know the penguins favourite food is fish, squid and krill? Emperor penguins can go for up to 120 days without food.
What a fantastic time you all had at ‘The Deep’. Everyone had lots to say about all the amazing sea creatures that you saw. You took lots of photographs and used the Flip to record these videos. Can you spot the sharks and ray fish? What else can you see?
This week we continue to read stories about the Rainbow Fish and we will be acting out the first story. We can invite our parents in to watch us performing the story when we have practiced it together! We will also be continuing with our collages of the Rainbow Fish and the seascapes. Wednesday is International Day of Peace and we will be thinking about how we can help make the World, Harehills and are school all peaceful places to live in.
Everyone has made a great start on Mathletics and lots of us have already achieved certificates. This week have a look at Spellodrome and you will see that I have set up games with our spellings too! Just click on Spellodrome on your Mathletics page!
Hope you have had a happy weekend, and I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow! Don’t forget the Mathletics after-school clubs all start this week!

On Thursday we celebrated more of our achievements on Mathletics. Lots of parents came to celebrate with the children who achieved Gold Awards, and Lucas the Kop Cat from Leeds United, and Danny Buderus from Leeds Rhinos came to help give out the certificates, along with Chris Edwards and Deanne and Suzy from Mathletics.
Next week I am going to the Mathletics Conference and I will be talking about how Hovingham Primary has become the 1st Centre of Excellence for Mathletics – in the world! So this a short video I have put together to show them – and to give everyone an idea as to why the children at Hovingham are so great at Maths and love it so much! Well done everyone – keep ‘Aiming High,’ get a certificate every week – and try and be the Mathlete of the week with the highest score.

I’m so sorry that I wasn’t able to join you yesterday, and I won’t be in today either – but I know you are doing some great things with Miss Friday and all the great Year 2 team.
First, let me tell you about my day in London, meeting a lady called Rachael, who works for Mathletics in Australia! She wanted to know all about how we do our Maths and all the things we are learning, so she can design some new games to make the site even better for you. She loved your story about Mr Mathletics and Little Miss Perfect! She showed me the latest, exciting things that have happened on Mathletics – there are some new amazing workbooks, that we can print out and use – so even if you don’t have a computer you can still enjoy Mathletics. I know that Miss Friday is going to give you some booklets from the Mathletics workbooks for you to take home for the holidays! I was also shown the new changes on Spellodrome, and now I can set you special spelling lists – so if you have the internet at home, log on and see the changes in Spellodrome too! Well done too, to Chelsea for getting her Gold Certificate this week, and to the children who did the quiz I set up on Mathletics for you yesterday.
The next exciting thing - The Bug Club! I have set us up a 30 day trial of the Bug Club. It is like an online library – but even better! I have set all of you up with some books which I know you will enjoy… Miss Friday will give you your passwords and show you how it works.
So here are links to keep you busy over the holidays! Please also blog and tell me what you are up to – I will blog to you all over the holidays too!
