Silver - Year 2

Welcome to Silver Class! 


We hope you had a wonderful Easter break and that you all had lots of fun! Our topic this term is Homes and Habitats. We will be looking at our local environment and different places around the world whilst also thinking about the habitats of different animals.

Using the lions at Longleat as inspiration, we have learnt some lion poems by heart. We worked as groups or individually to recite a poem and then we used the ‘green screen’ to record, edit and add pictures to our performances. We had lots of fun and we are very proud of ourselves.

We had a fantastic trip to Longleat. It was brilliant to see so many different animals and learn about their habitats and adaptations. We enjoyed a boat trip, explored Koala Creek and Animal Kingdom, met animals in the Family Farmyard and drove around the Safari Park. It was a grrreat day!

We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas break. Our topic this term is Heroes! We are looking forward to some really exciting learning opportunities.

Mere School Book Day

For Book Day, Silver Class learnt and performed a poem. We learnt part of ‘The Dragon Who Ate Our School’ by Nick Toczek. We used the iPads to take photos from around school. Then we performed the poem in groups in front of the Green Screen. We put our performance and pictures together to create our amazing video. Please click on the link below to watch it. 
On Book Day, we also dressed as our favourite book characters and enjoyed a session with local poet Camilla Nelson. We shared books together in our class and Mrs Cocker came to read us a story too. In the evening, we came back to school for Bed Time Stories and enjoyed lots of stories, hot chocolate and biscuits!

Snuggle Up Stories


On Friday all of Key Stage One enjoyed our Snuggle Up Stories day. We all came in our cosy, comfy clothes and spent the day enjoying books. We mixed all of the classes up and took part in 3 different activities which included a snuggly story time, sharing books together and decorating our own book folders.

Each class has a selection of special new books which the children can choose from to take one home each week. We really enjoyed choosing our new books. At the end of the day, parents and carers were invited in to come and share stories with their children. It was a really special and enjoyable day! We hope you enjoy your Snuggle Up Story.
