Welcome to Year Two!
This year we have been thinking about keeping ourselves healthy so we have doing a 'Daily Mile' where we all go outside onto the playground each day and walk around as a class.
In Maths today we explored odd and even numbers using a range of resources.
As part of Chinese New year, we participated in a special Chinese New year dance workshop. We were taught about how new year is celebrated across China and learnt some Chinese dancing. We were also able to see and wear some Chinese dragon costumes and use Chinese fans.
As part of Remembrance Day and Anti-Bullying Week, (which was covered in SMSC and History,) we participated in a workshop about a soldier in the First World War. We learnt what life was like in the trenches. We discussed its importance and how we might prevent conflict in the future. Although it was a difficult topic for us to understand we still had some fun following drill instructions and holding the enormous, wooden rifle!
This term we have been reading 'A Bear Called Paddington,' by Michael Bond in-line with our topic 'Maybe It's Because I'm A Londoner!'. As part of our initial engagement process with the book we made bread in D.T. The children thoroughly enjoyed the bread with marmalade on top, as eaten by Paddington. We later wrote instructions for making bread and had the opportunities to measure quantities and scientific discussion about the changes in properties along the way.
We attended a special assembly this half term to remind us how to keep healthy.
We were reminded of the importance of having a balanced diet, sufficient sleep and exercising.
The presenter gave us tips on how to keep our minds healthy .
Year Two children have been trained in basic first aid by an external agency.
Year Two children are engaged in their Mastery TimesTable activity.
An external company called 'Splatz' came in to teach the children circus skills and support our cross curricular learning.
During our recent challenge and support day Year two children planned their own circus equipment. They used a range of materials and the most efficient ways to join these materials.They also evaluated their work and discussed how these skills might be used in the real world.
At the end of half term we celebrated harvest with a special assembly in key stage one. Children from reception, year one and year two joined together for this celebration. The children sang songs and shared harvest art work they had created themselves.
