Healthy Living Topic

We looked at how to clean our teeth correctly. We improvised by covering some teeth in tippex and marmite. Using a toothbrush, we then had to use water to clean the teeth fully. We quickly realised that the tippex was hard to get rid of so we must clean our teeth properly 2x every day!

To finish our topic on Healthy Living, we tasted, designed and made our own healthy pasta salads. We used new cooking techniques such as dicing, slicing and cutting to prepare some of the food.  We tasted and added in cucumber, tomatoes, carrot, pepper, olives, sweetcorn and beetroot. We really enjoyed making our meals and described them as “tasty”, “crunchy” and “really yummy”.  The children commented on how they’d like to make the same again at home with their parents.

Exploring the School Grounds

To begin Year 2 we went for a walk around the school grounds. We used our senses to see what we could see, hear, feel and smell. We walked to the top playground and to the field. When we got back we planned a recount and used this to help us with our first writing pieces.

Music
 
We are very lucky this term as we have Mr Cook for music. He brought in two instruments for us to look at. He taught us all about them and the sounds they make, and then asked us to draw them.

Happiness Hippo Collages
 
As Happy Hippo was missing, we decided to bring a bit of happiness into our classroom. We thought of objects that bring us happiness, made a collage of them using cellophane, laminated and put them onto our ‘Window of Happiness’ display. It has really brightened up our classroom!

Honesty
 
In PSHE we thought about what ‘Honesty’ really means. We came up with lots of ideas which have been added to our Showcase book.

Famous People
 
In topic we have been learning about famous people from the past. We have learnt about Florence Nightingale and the changes she made to hospitals and nursing. We imagined that we were here and wrote about what she did and how she helped.
