Mad Hatter Inspired Hats

This half term Year 2 have read a version of the classic ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Lots of our learning will focus on the story and we started by taking inspiration from the Mad Hatter and made our own hats. As you can see children are very pleased with their creations.

Year 2 Learn To Ride

I hope Year 2 enjoyed their time improving their cycling skills earlier this week. I was very impressed with children’s determination during the sessions and it was lovely to see their smiles as they mastered pedalling! Hopefully we will get cycling again soon!

Floating Fun

We enjoyed making and testing our own boats this week to learn a little more about forces. Children worked excellently as a team and made fantastic predictions about which boats would float.

Spellings on the move!

Children enjoyed completing our ‘Crack the Code’ mission for our Phonics this afternoon. All of the letters of the alphabet were given a number and hidden around the outdoor area. Children were then given a selection of numbers to hunt. When they found all of the numbers a spelling was revealed.

Spring has sprung!

Today was the first day of spring and what a lovely sunny day it has been! Children have once again enjoyed our outdoor area for both learning and play. We used the area as a stage to be news reporters reporting on the Great Fire of London and in Phonics hunted for words with e-e. Children have also enjoyed making superheros and practising their scooting skills.

Measuring Fun!

Well the weather might not be as sunny and warm as last week but it hasn’t stopped us enjoying our outdoor area. The maths area today was set up with measuring jugs and scales with challenges encouraging children to measure different quantities. Children made some excellent measurements – even calculating what the amount was when there was no number e.g. If the water reached between 50ml and 60ml children understood it was 55ml.
Super work children!

Pancake Day

Children enjoyed making a pancake with their favourite topping on earlier this morning. Which would you choose: golden syrup, chocolate spread, strawberries, bananas or sugar and lemon?

We also enjoyed our pancake races.
