I am writing to let you know I am back! I am sorry for being away from school for so long. I had an injury and I had to let it heal before I could return. I am healthy and looking forward to seeing you all again when this is all over. Remember to stay at home where you can keep safe.
Because I have not seen you all for a while, I wanted to challenge your memory and see what you can remember from what we have done together so far in 2020. Keep an eye on the blog because I will post some things to talk and write about that you can do to impress your parents. It might be about our History, D and T, Music, Science or more so don’t forget to check here every few days.
Today we celebrated World Book Day. The children have been very excited to share their costumes with their friends. We have all taken part in The Big Read this morning and the children enjoyed listening to different stories being read to them.
Thank you to all the parents for the amazing costumes
Today, 2 Pankhurst visited Salford Quays. We were all very excited to travel on the school mini buses, as it was the first time for some of us. We got to explore Media City, The Blue Peter Garden, The Lowry and we walked past the Imperial War Museum.
The children are now looking forward to compare Salford Quays to the African cities and towns they have been studying during our skills lessons.
Yesterday 2 Pankhurst went into the Forest School to see why shelters are important to help animal and humans survive. First we watched Mr Lowe build a shelter using a tarpaulin, with help from Sophie and Austin. After that we collected our own materials to build shelters, for the animals who live in the forest. We look forward to seeing what 2 Armstrong create next week.
This half term 2 Pankhurst will be learning about how exercise helps us keep healthy. During our science days we conducted an investigation to see the effects exercise has on our heart beat. We used Mr Bean’s Fitbit to measure our heart beat before and after we had completed our Daily Mile, to see the difference exercise had made. We discovered that when we do exercise our heart beat increases. The children are looking forward to doing other experiments over the half term.
On Wednesday Year 2 performed our Christmas Show, Gnome Alone. All the children were fantastic to perform a flawless performance. Thank you to everyone who came to support the children and those who helped the children learn their lines and the songs.
A belated post to say thank you to all of the children in Year 2, we have made many memories this year and you have been a wonderful class. You have worked incredibly hard all year and I am so proud of you all and everything you have all achieved! Your new teachers are very lucky! Good luck in Year 3, Miss Harrison has already told me how fantastic you are all doing! Also a huge thank you to all the parents, you have been a great support this year and is appreciated!
