In Science, our topic is Animals Including Humans. We have learnt all about how animals have offspring which grow into adults and we looked in detail about how birds change and grow. We have also found out that we need air, food and water for survival and created informative posters to show our learning. We enjoyed classifying foods into healthy and unhealthy categories using Venn diagrams. We now know all about balanced diets and designed our own healthy meals. In addition, we have been exploring the importance of exercise. We took part in a carousel of fun physical activities to learn about what happens to our bodies and the health benefits of staying active. The children have been asking lots of great questions in their science lessons and show great enthusiasm in every task. Well done!
The children have had a brilliant first full week in Year 2! The class have come back to school with lots of enthusiasm for learning and they have wowed me with their super listening skills and fantastic manners!
In our English lessons, we have been reading a traditional tale called Rapunzel to kick off our unit 'Once Upon a Time'. The children have written down their opinions of good and bad characters from the story including Rapunzel's father and the wicked witch. Every lesson, we act out what has happened in the story using lots of actions and repeated phrases. This has helped us with remembering each stage of the story and also with our writing as we get a chance to rehearse our ideas before we write them down.
Please take a look at the photos below which show our drama lessons and the writing we have produced so far!
