Our Learning

The children enjoyed planting some spring bulbs and seeds. Fingers crossed they will grow!

The children had lots of fun raising money for Red Nose Day by wearing red, buying cakes and winning teddies on the teddy tombola.

In art we have been exploring textures through painting and collage using different tools and techniques .

Science - observational drawings

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. 

World book day. Year 2 have been very creative with their entries for the potato competition.

Golden mile.

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.  

Science - Healthy Plate

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.

Internet Safety Day

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.  



Football at The Venue

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.

The children have worked hard in their phonics and rwi lessons this week.

Library Challenge

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.
