On Thursday we developed our conceptual understanding of counting in steps. The children used lots of practical activities to explore the concept and then have since applied it to maths star challenges! I am so proud of them!
This afternoon we have had so much fun during our learning mission provision session! The children have been sketching suffragette medals and our hero from history Emily Davison! The children mixed colours in order to make purple and then improved their sketching by using a portrait sketching tutorial!
This week we have published our writing! The children produced amazing fact files about Rosa Parks! They used all of their new knowledge and skills to produce some fantastic year 2 writing! I am so proud of you all!
This week we have been learning about the importance of exercise! The children learnt about the effects of exercise on our bodies and then took part in a whole class experiment. The children completed 2 attempts of 5 different movements. They then measured their heartbeats! We concluded that the harder the exercise the more our hearts beat!
This week we enjoyed our music session with Haley! We were learning about different patterns and pitches of music! We really enjoyed experimenting with sounds in our group.
This half term our PSHE question is: How can we recognise our feelings?
This week we focused on happiness! We learnt what happiness means and how we can show happiness in different ways. The children acted out in front of the class different scenarios where they have been happy in their own lives! We then completed a happiness journal!
Hazel Class had an amazing time at our fun run today! I am so proud of all of their achievements and hard work! You all showed our sports values and cheered everyone on! Well done!
We had a fun first Forest School session with Madeleine! We learnt different ties and knots and we practised on our own ropes. Then, we worked in groups to create dens. We had to make dens that were waterproof. We showed amazing communication skills with our friends and then we tested our dens! No one got wet! Then, we learnt about fire safety and then made fireside porridge. We also had a go at creating our own sparks using flint and steel.
This week in music we have been learning to identify different percussion instruments and using them to create our own sounds. We worked in groups to create our own sound patterns and performed them using our hands and feet.
This week we learnt how to tie different knots and their uses. We had so much fun practicing and then using them in our den building.
