Today was the beginning of our new topic ’Plants’. We had a selection of seeds and bulbs and studied them closely to see what they looked like and what they felt like. We made careful observations of them and then drew each one. We paid special attention to the changes in the bulb when it had germinated. We noticed that the bulb looked quite different as it had sprouted new shoots.
Our visit to Newark air museum kickstarted our history topic ‘The History of Flight’. We looked at many aircrafts some from as early as 1909. We were able to compare what they were made from and how planes have changed over time. It was a great way to begin our new learning.
Today we learnt about the different food groups and created our own healthy plate meals. Before we decided what we would have on our plates, we taste tested a range of fruit and vegetables. As you can see we thought some were yummy, others not so much! This was a great way of exploring new foods and introducing new healthy foods into our diets.
During internet safety day we looked at the story of Hanni and the Magic Window. Children discussed the positives of the internet and how they can be used for learning as well as leisure. They also discussed the negatives such as seeing things they shouldn’t and what they should do if this happens.
Today we completed our PE unit of invasion games with a visit to The Venue. We got to show off what we been learning about attacking and defending and putting our skills into practise with a tournament at the end. Everyone gave their all and showed what fantastic progress they had made this term. Thank you to The Trinitiy Foundation for having us.
During our reading lesson this week children were challenged to find as many books in our library from a range of authors. The children loved it! We then looked at the range of book covers and titles and made comparisons across the books.
Week commencing 21st November
In PHSE we discussed lots of fun activities we can do to keep our mind and bodies healthy. We had lots of great ideas like making pizza and cakes, playing with our toys, going to the park or the seaside and playing games and sports.
Our first celebration event as Year 2. What a fantastic turn out of parents and grandparents. Thank you to all who attended. The children were very excited to be able to share their learning with you all and challenge you to see if you knew as much as they did about Science and Geography as well as Art, Maths and English. We look forward to the next event…who knows what we may challenge you to next time!
