Year 2 and 3 - Honey Bee class

Honey Bee Autumn 2 review

What a busy and festive half term we have had!

Our topic has been ‘Pure Imagination’ which the children have thoroughly enjoyed. They have imagined their own dragons and created a Non-Chronological Report all about their own creations. They all turned out brilliantly! We also explore the book ‘Leon and The Place Between’ which really enabled our imaginations to flow and helped us to learn new sentence types and punctuation!

November saw us finally receive our new cosy reading corner which we have loved using for reading sessions.


In Maths, we have mastered Addition and Subtraction using different strategies to help us answer problems. We then applied this knowledge when we learn about Money and have been able to add and subtract money! We have all mastered some new times tables and division facts this half term thanks to our hard work on TTRockstars.

In Computing, we have become master coders. Looking at how to write our own code and debug problematic code that had already been created. The children really enjoyed these sessions this half term and always looked forward to our weekly Computing lesson!

PE has been a busy subject as we have began practicing Basketball and then we moved on to Dodgeball which was a big favourite among the class. We have been very musical learning about pitch and how to play different instruments with Mrs Triggs.


Our Art sessions have involved looking at colour mixing and toning. We created our own art pieces using different shades of colours to create a beautiful scene. We also enjoyed a visit from some local Art experts where we recreated the painting ‘Surprised’. It was lots of fun!


Finally, Christmas arrived…… which led to some very festive activities! We enjoyed making cards, decorating our classroom, receiving a video from Father Christmas, and wearing our Christmas jumpers to school.

It has been such an imaginative and creative half term. I wonder what the new year will bring.
