Telling The Time
To help with our maths learning, we made our own clocks. We have been testing each other on making and showing the times o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.
As part of our topic we have been cleaning teeth. We were given teeth each which were disgusting! They were covered in marmite and really stunk. We learnt lots of facts such as needing to brush twice a day for at least 2 minutes, and changing our toothbrushes every 3-4 months.
In RE we learnt all about the Jewish Faith and why they have Mezuzahs on their doors. We made our own Mezuzahs to put in our trays and wrote some promises. Our promises were things like: “I promise to be kind to my sister, even if she is annoying”, “I promise to be an aspirational ant”.
Cleaning our hands properly is really important! We became scientists with the superpower of being able to see germs. We were quite disgusted at how far one little sneeze could travel when he don’t wash our hands.
What a start to our ‘Healthy Living’ topic!
On Friday afternoon we took part in a series of activities, introducing us to healthy living. We had a yoga instructor come and visit from ‘Once Upon The Mat’ which we thoroughly enjoyed. We learnt about how important it is to exercise and keep ourselves healthy.
When we returned to the classroom we took part in giving each other hand massages and then relaxed using cucumber eye masks – some of us were so relaxed we nearly fell asleep!
Finally, we tried some different vegetables from the salad bar.
Welcome to Year 2!
Exploring the School
We kicked off the year by heading out on an adventure. Loyalty class decided to explore all the places in the school which we don’t normally see, he headed outside and went to lots of different places using our senses to focus on what we could see, hear, smell and feel. As you can see we had a really good time and saw lots of things to inspire our writing.
A plan quickly followed, we used adjectives and pictures to help us decide which was the best order for our writing and I think you’ll agree our writing is going to be spectacular!
