Year 2 - Class 5 Otter

Welcome to Otter class, we have been busy settling into Year Two. Here are some of the exciting things that we have been doing.
Morning work- When we arrive at school, we are encouraged to put our things away, change our reading books, hand in any letters and then get busy with some jobs. Our jobs change every day so that we get a chance to do everything.

Power Of Reading- We have been exploring the text "Orion and the dark". When looking at the book, we have discussed characters and made our own puppets. This has helped us pretend to be those characters and imagine how they think and feel.
