  • Magnificent Multiples in Year 2

    Published 30/11/23

    This week in Year 2, we have been learning about making equal groups and multiples of 2, 5 and 10. Today, we made arrays to prove the commutative law; that 5 x 3 is the same as 3 x 5.

    Keep practising counting in 2's, 5's and 10's at home- counting in multiples as you climb the stairs, walk to school, brush your teeth and so much more!

  • Creative Home Learning Projects

    Published 30/11/23

    The children in Amazon Class have blown us away with the effort they have put into their creative home learning projects this term. They have loved sharing their London buses, black cabs and telephone boxes with the rest of the school.

    Well done Amazon Class!

  • London Day!

    Published 23/11/23

    Amazon Class started this week by taking part in London Day!

    It was our mission to bring London to Stanton and enjoy lots of super, hands-on learning about our 'We're off to London' topic.

    We came to school wearing the colours of the Union Jack flag- red, white and blue, or a London themed costume. We started the day with a London song before learning about different London landmarks. Outside, we took part in a London landmark hunt, reading and following clues, followed by ‘stepping into’ a large London map and using a compass to give directions to reach different landmarks. After exploring the book ‘Pop-Up London’, we made our own 3D maps to show the location of landmarks in our capital city.

    During the afternoon, we shared the story of ‘The Naughty London Bus’ and enjoyed retelling the story in our small world play. Some children even innovated the story and told the story of the naughty black cab! The buses and cabs particularly enjoyed the baked beans!

    It wouldn’t have been London Day without some Paddington themed activities so we finished off our day by modelling our very own Paddington Bears and a whole class Union Jack.

  • Who's been visiting Amazon Class?

    Published 12/11/23

    This week, Amazon Class have launched into their topic, ‘We’re Off to London’ whilst in English, meeting a very special and lovable character who is rather familiar with our capital city.

    The children arrived at school to find sticky paw prints, and after close inspection using our eyes and noses, we deduced that the classroom visitor must have had marmalade covered paws! 

    A little later on, we discovered a ‘London Station Lost Property’ box had been sent to our classroom. We had been asked by the station master to help return the contents to its rightful owner- a pesky character who kept losing his belongings.

    Excitably delving into the box, we identified; a London map, wellington boots, stamps from around the world (including Peru), a Union Jack flag and a jar of the finest marmalade.

    In groups, we used our talk sentence stems, together with our Class Talk Rules, to discuss our predictions for who the mystery character might be.

    Our talk focus this week has been ‘taking turns’ by using a visual talking stick to help us. 

    After sharing lots of interesting predictions, we explored our new book. The final piece to our mystery puzzle- Paddington by Michael Bond.

    We are very excited to be using this wonderful story to inspire our reading and writing this term and can’t wait to share this with you over the coming weeks.

    This week, Amazon Class have enjoyed learning the poem ‘A Tiny Burning Flame’, practising their performance, articulation, rhythm and volume.

    We were inspired to then write our own Great Fire of London poetry.

    We hope you enjoy our performance, which can be found here:
