Year 2 have recently been using the athletics equipment to master the basic movements of running, jumping and throwing as well as developing their balance, agility and co-ordination.
Friday 30th April - School Library
Today we were able to visit our refurbished school Library during our reading session. We really enjoyed looking at the selection of fiction and non-fiction books on the shelves and discussed what we would find in each type of book - we can't wait visit again!
Our Class Maths Ambassadors have been helping to lead a "Big Maths" Class session. They chose Maths Challenges for the class to complete, modelled their chosen strategies on the class board and invited other children in the class to share their strategies too. A great opportunity for the children to learn from each other.
Earth Day 2021
What a fabulous day Y2 had celebrating Earth Day!
Joining a whole school effort, we went out into our school grounds picking up litter, whilst Green-Team member, Millie, led a group of children in planting some lovely flowers around school.
In the afternoon, we took a walk to investigate a local habitat - Stubb's Pool. Armed with our clipboards and pencils, we walked all the way around the pool, stopping at various points to observe, draw and label the different forms of life we spotted living in the pond habitat, we could not believe how much we spotted!
A big discussion we had was the problem of litter in all different types of habitats, particularly at the pond - we actually saw a moorhen trying to eat a plastic bag, We discussed our role in helping natural habitats stay litter free.
