Year two have been enjoying reading Paddington Bear this term and completing reading and writing tasks based on the book. Today we were writing instructions about how to make a marmalade sandwich (Paddington’s favourite) but first we needed to make our own. Children couldn’t wait to tuck in to them and give marmalade a try.
A big, big thank you and well done for all of our fabulous flying machines in year 2.
Children enjoyed exploring different microhabitats in the Science garden this afternoon. We saw worms, spiders and ladybirds living in the soil and on the leaves.
Year 2 put their culinary skills to the test this afternoon by making some soup. We thought it would be the perfect dish to keep us warm on an Arctic expedition. Children peeled and chopped onions, potatoes and leeks and added them to hot oil and vegetable stock. Once the mixture had heated and the vegetables had softened it was time to blend to make it nice and smooth. It seemed to be a real hit with the children (and staff)!
Great work children!
Year 2 had a wonderful time exploring our local Tesco store today. We got to have a sneaky peek behind the scenes going to where the deliveries are kept and going in the freezers and chillers. We also got to try some of the bread, cheese and ham the store sell.
For Science this half term year 2 are learning all about animals and their habitats. We sorted different animals by habitat e.g. a shark in the ocean then went to see if we could find any animals in the school pond. Children were very excited to spot a frog!
Our topic this half term is The Arctic and The Antarctic so we started off the new school year with a description of an igloo. To get children to imagine a little about what they might be like, they tested out how ice cubes felt. Children worked well as a table team to come up with adjectives before turning them in to some super sentences! After that children were amazing at self assessing their work to check for those all important CL (capital letters) and FS (full stops). You have really impressed me.
If you pay us a visit on the next transition morning you may spot some of this fantastic work on display.
What a fantastic start to the year Year 2!
Year 6 were excellent representatives of the school when they took part in the Discovery Olympic Games this morning. They played basketball, queenball and learned a dance routine. Some children showed excellent teamwork skills and determination! Well done!
