During maths this week we have been learning about fact families. To do this we investigated
making different towers that had to cost a certain amount. To challenge ourselves we had to make a taller
tower that went over 2 cubes.
We had a fantastic time watching Stick Man at the Malvern Theatre!
During forest school we even created our very own stick man.
What do animals and humans need to survive?
To finish off our topic we shared what we had been learning in front of the
rest of the school and our family and friends.
We had a fantastic time at Aston Hall Farm this week.
We had a tour of the farm on a tractor ride, saw the cows and their calves, horses and their foals and
even some sheep.
Using our understanding of making a cat mask, we then wrote instructions on how to make another animal mask.
We then followed our friend's instructions to see if they'd work.
Do you know who took the chocolate and biscuits?
Well, we found out by investigating and measuring the teacher's feet in our school.
This week we have been learning about instructions.
We started by following instructions to make a cat mask like Mog from our story.
Before our food, from the harvest service, went to the food bank we learnt about different food groups.
For our harvest service, we all donated lots of different food to be sent to the food bank. Year 2 have
been writing acrostic poems for our harvest service where some of us read them out in church.
This week we have learnt how important it is to know our alphabet and how to put words in alphabetical order.
This has now helped us to become more independent and use a dictionary for our spellings.
This week we have been planning and writing our own alternative story for Mog and the Vee Ee Tee.
We will then be editing and writing these up to go in our first class book.
This week we voted for our school and eco council representatives.
This week we had lots of fun during arts morning. We learnt all about how to draw self-portraits
and the features of our face. Here you can see us trying surrealism style.
This week in Forest School we have been learning how to use pen knives.
We also really enjoyed using the extended mud kitchen!
This week we have been finishing of making and assembling our Pirate ships ready to paint next week.
Once finished we followed instructions to make a mini boat for our ship's crew.
We have had a super day dressed as pirates this week! We make a ravishing crew in Year 2. Oooooh Arrrrr!!!!
Take a look at what we got up to when our pirate visitor showed us all to know about pirates.
This week we have started to use our knowledge of pirates and have designed and planned how we're going to
make our very own pirate ship and flag.
This week for try it out Friday we joined the circus!
We had lots of fun and were given lots of circus props to practise with such as; feather balancing,
scarf juggling, cup and ball catching and even had a go on the mini bicycles and unicycles.
We have started try it out Friday and for this week we had the opportunity to try out Yoga.
It was very relaxing and helped us to listen to sounds around us, including our breathing.
To start of our topic for our last term we walked in to the classroom and found a pirate ship had taken
over our reading corner! All week we've been asking questions, wearing eye patches and completing
treasure hunts to find out more about pirates.
