Have a look at what we will be doing in Year 2.
Look at Year 2 learning new skills from their peers in Year 4.
The Year 4 Class taught us lots of different ways to skip. They were excellent teachers!
We decided to make pitta pockets filled with healthy fruit and vegetables. Every child in the class had a go at cutting or grating some food including carrots, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, grapes and peppers. We spread hummus on the inside of some pitta bread, then cut them into smaller pieces. We decided to have a picnic outside to eat them!
Look at us having fun and using our energy to climb, crawl, jump from and move across the bouncy castle!
Our latest Working Wall - we had to describe a scene from Anthony Browne's story "The Tunnell" using expanded noun phrases.
We listened to "Silly Billy" by Anthony Browne which is about a boy who receives worry dolls from his grandmother. We designed our own dolls then made them from dolly pegs. The materials used were string, wool, fabrics and paints. We are very proud of them!
In class we have a large selection of Anthony Browne books. We are learning about him as an author and discussing what we like about his stories. Here we are working in pairs to read various books and list the things we like and dislike about them.
Very practical lessons in Maths this week! We learned how to make clockwise and anti-clockwise turns, and to turn one- two- and three-quarters. We also learned how to move in steps of various directions, including forwards, backwards, left and right.
After listening to the story of Pentecost, we have re-enacted the account of the Holy Spirit. We wondered how the Disciples would have felt before and after they received the gifts of the spirit.
Whilst learning about this particular topic Year 2 went outside to explore the local environment. We were specifically looking at micro-habitats and the living things found there. We took our clipboards and used magnifiers to record our findings. We had a lot of fun using the pooters to collect the minibeasts! Parents also supported us as this was the afternoon where parents were invited in to watch our lessons. At the end of the session we went back to the grassy area outside our classroom and put our minibeasts into the bug hotels we had made alongside our investigating.
During our Science topic of Animals and Their Habitats we used reference books and search engines to find out as much as we could about different habitats. Then we created some dioramas of the different main kinds. We loved using all of the art resources and natural materials found around school. It took us several days to complete them from scratch! We worked together really well. See if you can spot arctic, rainforest, jungle, desert, ocean and field.
Whilst learning about The Mass we went to Holy Name Church to look around. We had already learned the names of some of the artefacts used, like chalice, altar and tabernacle. Today we went to find these things and also to look around behind the scenes.
Every time we did a lap on the field we picked up a token. We scored well over 200 laps altogether.
Here we are making our Chinese farmers' hats; and a picture of our completed Great Wall of China which we all helped build together from clay.
