The last 2 weeks we have been thinking about serving others for our value. We thought about how meerkats serve each other by having a sentry who keeps watch and alerts the rest of the mob when danger is coming. We acted this out and then thought about how we serve each other in our class. Continue reading
This week we created pencil drawings of insects. We gave each other feedback of how to improve and then did a second drawn. What amazing improvements we made!
This week we have been working on our new Topic about Meerkats. We created sunset pictures with pastels and then used paint to add silhouettes of different animals and trees.
We had a great afternoon with Katherine from the RSPB. We learned all about different habitats. We wanted to discover if our school was a good place for wildlife so we went on a habitat hunt all around the grounds. We stuck a sticker on the map to represent all the different environments we found. We decided that our school is an amazing place for wildlife.
what an amazing week we have had! We have really enjoyed our science week learning. We carried out lots of different investigations such as setting up a tube with food in to try to attract nocturnal animals to walk through paint on to paper to see what type of animals visit our school at night. We hoped they would leave footprints but they were to sneaky for us! We also looked closely at the grass around our school trying to answer the question ‘Is the field just grass?’ We found that there were many different plants within the blades of grass. We also found a bush baby in our playground. We found out all about them and wrote amazing non chronological reports. Well done year 2. What a busy week we have had!
We had an amazing, fun filled, muddy day at Nell Bank. We learned lots of new things about nocturnal animals. We played lots of different games and did exciting activities such as following a rope blind folded or chasing each other as if we were rabbits and foxes.
We had a great day for world book day this week. We all dressed up as Roald Dahl characters and had a bo quiz in house teams. It was so much fun!
In RE we were thinking of the 5 Pillars of Islam. We also thought about how are school rules hold up our schoo. We chose children to represent these rules that hold the school together and then saw what would happen if they weren’t there.
As part of our new Owl and Pussy Cat learning we investigated different things they could use for a ring and thought about why they would be good and why they would not be good. Which ring did you think would be best?
This week we have started new learning about The Owl and The Pussy Cat. Today we spent time orally rehearsing the poem and we really enjoyed putting actions to it as well! We also thought about what we would take with us if we could only take one item on a trip and why we would take it.
