After half term our PE days will be Mondays and Wednesdays.
The children have started their journey in year 2 and are very excited about all the things we have planned. Please keep checking our class page for updates and our Twitter feed to see what we've been up to.
You can find out more information about what we will be learning about this term by clicking on the Project icon above.
In the autumn term we will be launching our Create Project. Our BIG QUESTION this term is 'Can you create the feeling of Hakuna Matata?' Our learning will focus on the arts and we will also be linking to other areas of the wider curriculum including geography, history and science! Reconnecting with one another after a long time away for some, will be a priority and our PSHE lessons will support us with well-being and that 'no worries' feeling.
Year 2 have had a lovely morning at their Christmas party, playing lots of of Christmassy games. They have enjoyed musical statues, wrapping paper game, Christmas corners and sleeping children waiting for Santa!
We have been learning dances to African music with a coach in PE. We put all the moves we had learnt together and performed them this week. Can you guess what animal we are at the end? Go to video resource center to see them all.
As part of our Create project we have been looking at the continent of Africa. The children were given photos of different settings and had to decide whether the picture could be found in Africa or not. Once they had sorted all the pictures the twist was revealed that all the photos were of places, people and buildings in Africa!
We have watched Disney's the Lion King in our create sessions and looked closely at the animals that appear in the film. We chose an animal to have a go at drawing. What do you think to our efforts?
Physical or Human Features?
We have been looking at the physical and human features of Africa. We watched a video which explained what these geographical terms meant. We then put our learning into practise and sorted photos of famous places in Africa into physical and human.
In Maths we have been looking at place value. We used some of our resources to help make two-digit numbers. We recorded how many tens and ones were in our numbers.
In English, we've been inspired by the story of Meerkat Mail and decided to become wonderful writers to write our own stories. The stories are all on the theme of journeys and we worked hard to plan, edit and publish our story ideas. It's been amazing to be real authors!
Here are some pictures of us being storytellers and sharing our stories with a friend.
Our science unit has been looking at animals. We have learnt the term offspring and looked at life cycles of different animals. We played a game, matching the animal to it's offspring.
