This week children heard the story ‘The Dot’ by Peter Reynolds. In this story a pupil is challeneged to make her mark and see where it takes her. She ends up turning dots into wonderful artwork. The story encourages children to think about what they are good at and persevere at what they are not so good at.
I challenged children to turn a dot into some wonderful artwork of their own.
I think we have some future actors and actresses in Year 2! Everyone put in so much effort to their retells of Little Red Riding Hood. Children remembered lots of little details from the story and included them in their role play. We are hoping that this understanding will help us to do some super writing tomorrow!
During Eco Day Year 2 learnt about plastic pollution in our oceans. It is thought that by 2050 there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish! To try to represent this we made our own ocean.
It appears that all of your hard work with the missing posters has paid off Year 2 as Granny has been found! Little Red contacted the school after you had left today.
What would you ask Granny if you could see her?
Year 2 have been ever so concerned about Grandma since finding out the big bad wolf has taken her. We thought we’d help Little Red by creating missing posters. If you see her please let us know.
Year 2 really enjoyed using their symmetry skills to create a flag ready for the match tonight!
Thank you to all of the family members that came and supported the transition morning this morning. I was very impressed with all of the children’s self portraits and can’t wait to put them on display ready for September.
Year 2 have had a fantastic afternoon using collage to create our seaside inspired art. Great work!
Year 2 have enjoyed working with a partner this morning to create symmetrical patterns along a vertical line of symmetry.
Children enjoyed learning a range of new skills today such as using a golf club, running in the ladders, how to hula hoop and how to jump the hurdles.
Everyone was fantastic at the hurdles – not a single hurdle was knocked over in our races at the end.
