In English we have been learning about Paddington Bear and all about instructions. What better way to combine the two than making some marmalade sandwiches – Paddington’s favourite. Unfortunately, some of us weren’t as keen on the marmalade as Paddington is.
Children have worked incredibly hard this half term to improve their sewing skills. We have worked on threading different sized needles, tying knots and running stitch. To end our unit we have created Christmas cards. Well done Year 2!
We had some very confused Year 2 children this morning! Eric the Elf had paid us a little visit. He moved our tree from one side of the classroom to the other but in the process tipped it over! He left a trail of decorations and crackers all over the classroom. Eric seemed very happy perched in the toppled tree with his Christmas hat and cracker joke. Luckily Year 2 had some very helpful children to tidy the mess…and we learnt a new joke. Who hides in bakeries at Christmas? Mince Spies!
Year 2 have shown some fantastic concentration and perseverance whilst sewing over the last two weeks. We have recapped threading a large eyed needle and tying a knot. We’ve also used a template to complete a running stitch. We’re very excited to use our skills to make a Christmas card in a few weeks time.
Sali was very pleased to share her First Aid Awareness certificate with the class earlier this week. She has learnt how to dial 999, what the recovery position is and all about CPR. Fantastic skills to learn. Well done Sali!
