This week, we would like you to accept two Voice Box challenges:
Learn a joke and tell it to the class.
Learn a poem and recite it to the class.
Please write your joke and poem into your book.
Here are some jokes and poems but we’re sure that you’ll have some of your own!
Why did the boy eat his homework? Because the teacher said it was a piece of cake!
Why was 6 afraid of 7? Because 7, 8, 9.
What do elves learn in school? The elf-abet.
Which flower talks the most? Tulips, of course, because they have two lips!
Why couldn’t the pony sing himself a lullaby? He was a little hoarse.
Alligator problem by Michael Rosen
If an excavator excavates
A motivator motivates
An activator activates
A rotivator rotivates
A cultivator cultivates
And an operator operates
What does an alligator do?
Squeezes by Brian Patten
We love to squeeze bananas,
We love to squeeze ripe plums,
And when they’re feeling sad,
We love to squeeze our Mums.
On the Ning Nang Nong by Spike Milligan
On the Ning Nang Nong
Where the Cows go Bong!
And the monkeys all say BOO!
There’s a Nong Nang Ning Where the trees go Ping!
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.
On the Nong Ning Nang
All the mice go Clang
And you just can’t catch ’em when they do!
So its Ning Nang Nong Cows go Bong!
Nong Nang Ning Trees go ping
Nong Ning Nang
The mice go Clang
What a noisy place to belong is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!
Rugby World Cup fever has hit and Owls class have had a lucky draw this week and picked out teams for the Rugby World Cup.
We’re going to find the countries and discover which continents they belong to. We’re also going to track who wins each match! Which team did you pick?
Thank you to all our parents who attended the read write inc. launch 😀
Both sessions were a great success and we have had some wonderful feedback.
For anyone who was unable to attend please find the information attached below. Links to relevant videos and further information can be found under the Read, Write Inc section down the right hand side of our blog page.
Your homework this week is to learn our Owl Poem below:
With a pointed nose,
He has pointed ears
And claws for toes:
He sits in a tree
And looks at you;
Then flaps his wings and says,
Can you remember all of the actions and teach them to your parents?
Welcome to Year 2 Owls!!
I hope you all enjoyed your first day back after the holidays, it was lovely to see you all again. I am very excited to be teaching you this year and look forward to hearing more about your holidays and starting all the fantastic work we will be doing this year.

Please check our ‘About Owls’ page for PE and Library days. This page will also contain information regarding upcoming trips and events.
I hope you are practising your lines for our Y2 play – Perry and Prudence Penguin save the world. You will be getting your costume letter on Friday so you can start getting your costume. When you go to Foundation Stage next week you will be making icy pictures for the backdrop and any other parts of your costume you need.
We will carry on practising the songs and acting in school and I will put the lyrics to the songs on here too so you can practise your singing at home too.
