The Magic E

silent e magic e song

We have found lots of Magic E words in our English books over the last few weeks. We have decided that he is almost like a bit of a bully because he always JUMPS BACK A LETTER AND MAKES THE VOWEL SAY IT’S NAME.

Can you think of any Magic E words? Here’s the song to help you remember some…..

Our Hibernating Hedgehogs

Second Class made clay hedgehogs and prepared a nest for them to hibernate in. We did a really good job because as you can see they CAMOUFLAGE into their nest. Can you think why real hedgehogs might do this too?

We have also spotted a squirrel in the garden outside our window preparing to hibernate!

Hibernation

As the weather begins to get colder, leaves start falling from trees and some animals start to get ready to go to SLEEP for the winter. Animals hibernate because in winter there is not much food to eat and it’s very cold.
The animals make nice warm places to sleep and have some food stored away for when they wake up in SPRING TIME.

Can you remember which animals hibernate? Watch this video to remind you which animals hibernate and where they hibernate!

Autumn

autumn 2

Today 2nd Class learnt all about Autumn and went on a short Nature Walk around the school observing the signs of Autumn all around us. Can you remember some of the signs of Autumn that you saw? What months are in the Season of Autumn?

On our walk we noticed that some trees lose their leaves in Autumn (Deciduous Trees) and some trees stay green all year round (Evergreen Trees). Can you name any Deciduous Trees? What colours do the leaves turn?
