The grown ups in Year 2 have been overwhelmed by all of the hard work and effort that the children (and their adults!) have put into creating their marvellous Izzy Gizmo inspired inventions. The results have been fantastic. Take a look at the inventions below. Which one would you like in your home?
Once upon a time, Little Red set off into the woods to catch a wolf . . .
But the woods aren’t all they seem – and are there even any wolves left? Can Little Red help her new friends in need and recover the wild days of the past? You can find out by watching the video below of Daffodil Class reading the entire story! What fantastic reading the children did!
Take a look at the Incredible acting from the children in Daffodil Class as Miss McBarron reads them the story of ‘The Last Wolf’ by Mini Grey!
Over the past 2 weeks, the children have been reading the story of Izzy Gizmo by Pip Jones. It’s a story about a young inventor called Izzy who’s inventions are marvellous, magnificent . . . and often malfunction. Inspired by the book, the children went away and created some helpful home inventions of their own. If you could invent anything in the world, what would it be?
Today the children learnt some marvellous mathematical vocabulary. Their new words included ‘clockwise and anti-clockwise’. To understand what these words meant, we went outside and pretended that we were clocks!
One quarter turn clockwise
Half a turn clockwise
Three quarter turn clockwise
Full turn clockwise
We then put our outdoor learning into practice!

This week the children have been reading ‘Beegu’ by Alexis Deacon. Beegu is an alien who is lost. She is a friendly little creature, but the Earth People don’t seem very welcoming at all, all except the little people that is …
Today the children wrote some questions for Beegu that they would like to know the answer to. They then interviewed each other with one child taking on the role of Beegu, and the other, the role of interviewer.
If you had only one question to ask an alien, what would it be?
