Here is our lovely Sophie making her cheese scones! They look delicious, Sophie!
Year 2 planted sunflower seeds a few weeks ago and wow look at how much they have grown! We will be bringing our flowers home so please take lots of photographs to show their progress!
On Tuesday afternoon Year 2 went on a QR code hunt! Children had to work in pairs to find different QR codes and retrieve information from different websites. They then answered different questions about Easter and different traditions. They used this information to complete a Kahoot! quiz.
Year 2 spent the morning looking at human and physical features of both the UK and Jordan. Some children evaluated the similarities and differences between the features.
Team work, communication and skill were all put to the test! Year 2 loved working in small groups to complete Mr Barron’s orienteering course. We developed both our map reading skills and grid references. Both the staff and children loved this new challenge.
Today in maths Year 2 continued to look at measurement. Some children worked with Mrs Foster to practise measuring different capacities. We had to accurately read scales on measuring jugs and carefully pour the water. We then compared measurements using >, < and = .
Today Year 2 created their own dream catchers in the nature garden. They worked together as a team and joined their stickers using a clove hitch knot. We were so impressed with the team work, patience and determination when things were challenging. Year 2 evaluated their dream catchers; identifying what went well, what was challenging and what we would do differently next time.
Linked to our Science topic and Hopes and Happiness theme, Year 2 planted their own sunflower seeds in the nature garden. We collected our own compost, planted the seed and watered them. We can’t wait to see if they grow!
Year 2 are reading the BFG and will be writing their own character descriptions. Today we read extracts of the story and used evidence from the text to justify our inferences about the different characters in the story. We used menti.com to generate our ideas.
On Monday 15th March Year 2 created their own pieces of Art using oil pastels to represent the sadness and joy of the Easter story.
