We all enjoyed wearing our Christmas jumpers and having Christmas dinner together.
We introduced the class to mindfulness activities. The children had to focus their attention on the fruit pastilles and notice the texture, smell, shape and then finally, the taste. They also watched a video clip called 'Taming the Beast' which was all about how we experience negative emotions and ways in which we can control them. Finally, we listened to some relaxing music and did some mindfulness colouring.
In Geography, we have been learning about plan view. We used Lego bricks to represent features of our classroom and created a key.
We have been learning and reciting poems by heart using our text maps as a guide.
Anti-Bullying Week- Year 2 Looked at the school box where they can report any bullying and also made personal pledges to show how small acts of kindness can really make a big difference.
