George’s Marvellous Medicine

This week Class 8 have been reading their class book George’s Marvellous medicine. It is about a marvellous medicine that George makes for his Grandma, which turns her very thin and very tall. On our topic table we have had a go at making our own Class 8 Marvellous Medicine and writing a recipe for it. We have also been acting out the story using puppets and spoons. How much fun we have had!

Today we have been writing our own noun-verb poems all about George’s Marvellous Medicine. Here is one that we wrote all together.

George grabbing
Medicine bubbling
Toothpaste squirting
Spoon stirring
Grandma growing
Mum moaning
Chicken clucking
We can’t wait to find out what happens at the end of the story!

Super 7

Welcome to Year 2's brand new blog! Class 7 are very excited to write the very first blog post.

We have begun with a very busy week at Ridgeway. We have been swimming, learned about the < and > symbols in maths and celebrated Roald Dahl day. Did you know he would have been 101 years old if he was still alive? We have also been drawing our own self-portraits and we're going to have a go at finishing them in the style of Pablo Picasso in the next few weeks.

< and > mean greater and less than, if you weren't sure. Charlie Crocodile helps us to remember where to put each number. 

For example:
 7 > 2, this means 7 is greater than 2.
2 < 17, this means 2 is less than 17. 

Our topic for this half term is George's Marvellous Medicine. We've been reading the book and so far we think it is fantastic! We very carefully designed and created some small artwork to go on our display. Soon we will be writing poems to go on to the shelves too. 

This year we are looking forward to pirate day, going to the places of worship, having a Victorian school day and lots of exciting school trips. We've heard about these from our friends and family who used to be in year 2 and we hope we get to do them too!

Make sure you check our blog regularly to see all of the exciting things we've been up to.
