Autumn Term 2009 - Mrs Littler's Class - Room 13

We soon found out what an important year 1666 was in our history when "Samuel Pepys" came to visit us in person and told us, in dramatic form, all about "The Great Fire of London"  Some of our class had the opportunity to act out scenes and get dressed up in order to help put out the fire! We will always remember the words "Flap, Mr Farryner flap!!" "Samuel Pepys" was a great hit with all the children and adults and he really brought our topic to life and got it off to a great start.

As part of our "People who help us" topic, we have also had visits from Steve Bousfield, a modern day fire-fighter and Mrs Rook (an armed response officer). Mr Bousfield was able to answer many of the interesting questions we had ready for him and two children even had the chance to race each other  and dress up in his uniforms! (See the photo below) His balaclava was rather on the large side though!

In literacy, we have been enjoying the story of "The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark". Plop has kept us very entertained and we can't wait for the next chapter! We spent a memorable and enjoyable afternoon when Barn Owl Bill brought a small selection of his owls into our Arts Studio. Miss Watts was very brave allowing the very large European owl to perch on her arm!!


In Numeracy we have been partitioning 2 and 3 digit numbers and rounding numbers to the nearest multiple of 10.We thoroughly enjoyed problem solving week, learning to work as a team was great.

 The Year 2 playground is right next to the building site!  We all enjoy watching the many huge machines that visit the site each day as we play!

Our Christmas Production was performed in Liverpool Road Methodist Church and was called "The Magical Christmas Box." Our class were the crackers and snowmen and some were narrators. We all sang very loudly and had a great time.

In D. T. we designed and made Christmas Stockings using felt.  We could choose whether to glue, staple or sew the felt. Do you like the photos of our stockings?
