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.
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!
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.
