‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Summer Term A

Week 6

This week we had a ‘Magic Box’ mysteriously delivered to school and it had some strange and unusual things inside, like the fire from the nostrils of a Chinese dragon. The children wrote their own ideas of what they would put inside their own magic box. Their ideas were super, some were so good that I had to send them to show Mr MingStones, who was very impressed. In art they enjoyed colour mixing and they can tell you which colours to use to make certain colours. 

Week 5

The children have enjoyed another great week, they have produced booklets about Kenya. 

Week 4

This week the children have begun a Geography topic. They have been learning the names of the 7 continents and 5 oceans. They enjoyed playing a 'Continent Beetle Drive'. Why not ask them to teach you the song. The Seven Continents Song | Silly School Songs - YouTube

Week 3

Another busy week in Year 2. The children enjoyed finding mini beasts in micro habitats, they have completed their African Leopard report and worked hard on The Tear Thief. 
In bushcraft, they had great big smiles on their faces as they worked as a team to move the bark into the allotment area. It was super to see them discussing the ways they were filling their buckets and helping each other.

African Leopard Reports

Week 2 

The children have worked hard this week writing their non chronological reports on African Leopards. Look back next week to see their final version. 

In Maths they have been looking at equal and unequal groups. 

In Science we have been learning about different types of habitats and exploring them to see which minibeasts live there.

The children have had a super week back after the Easter holidays, it has been lovely to hear their holiday news too.
