Mental Health Week 

The children enjoyed connecting with nature for mental health week. We discussed how it is good for your well-being to get outside and explore nature. We loved listening to the birdsong, and identfying different plants and fowers. We even spotted a magpie and lots of minbeasts. 

Designing a Vehicle

In Year 2 we have been designing and creating vehicles. We learnt skills like scoring, cutting and punching holes. The children learnt about how the chassis and the axels help the car to move. Here are some children with their finished pieces. 

Number Day 

We took part in NSPCC Number Day. This is  a maths inspired event and on this day the children took part in a number of different maths activities. The children had lots of fun invsetigating different maths challenges. 

Year 2 have been learning about the famous Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama who using dots to create her art. We used different media to complete work in her style.

Year 2 Art Yayoi Kusama

The children have enjoyed learning about the artist Yayoi Kusama this term. Kusama loved to piant pumpkins and used bright polka dots to create her work. The children have enjoyed recreating pumpkins in the style of Yayoi Kusma. 

Year 2 have been making musical instruments after researching which instruments could be plucked, banged, blown and shook.

Design and Technology - making a sandwich

Today, the children made a sandwich in school. They measured the ingredients carefully and practiced their cutting skills. I hope you enjoy eating your delicious sandwiches after school today. 

Being unique 

This term we have been learning all about being unique. We have learnt about what makes us unique - our hobbies, interests, feelings, family, friends and much more! Today, we wore clothes that show off our unique personalities. We hope you like the photos. 

We have being scientists by classifying how sound is made. we carried out their investigations through musical instruments. We had to identify how the sound was made, by blowing, hitting, strumming or shaking.

The Tiger Who Came to Tea
The children have been introduced to the story of The Tiger Who Came to Tea. Today the children have made up actions to help them retell the story in the correct order. The children have done a super job and wanted to share their story with you. The children will be retelling and writing the story later this week.
