Year 2 Kite Making!

During Design and Technology days we have been very busy designing and making kites! First we looked at different kites of all shapes and sizes. Then we got into groups and discussed ideas for our kite design. We worked together to design the kite and drew sketches to help us. After we had finished our design we made our kites using different resources such as wooden sticks, light fabric and string. We customised our kites using felt tip pens to create patterns. Finally we got to go on the field to test whether our kites would fly. We had so much fun and we have worked incredibly hard!

Sunflower Seeds!

During science days last week we worked in groups to plant sunflower seeds. This week we have been making sure we water our seeds, give them sunlight and air! We have been making observations this week and are seeds have germinated! We have also been keeping diaries to record notes and draw pictures. We have had to re-pot two of the sunflowers as the roots were getting bigger. We will keep you updated on the progress of our sunflowers. We are hoping they grow really tall!

Chit Chat Club!

Thursday Chit Clubs have been popular this half-term, myself and the children have really enjoyed having a chat and eating our lunch together in the classroom. The children love chit chat club and here are some of the reasons why…

“I like chit chat club because we get to listen to music”

“I love chit chat club because it is really calm and we get to talk”

“I like chit chat club because it is super fun!”

RE Week!

IMG_0002This week we have continued to learn all about Sikhism. We have learned about a very important festival called Vaisakhi, also spelled Baisakhi. It is one of the most important dates in the Sikh calendar and it is the Sikh New Year festival and it is celebrated on 13th or 14th April. We found out that Sikhs celebrate Vaisaki by wearing colourful clothing, by having parades, going to the Gurdwara and by singing and dancing. We ended the week by creating our own Vaisaki flags and having a celebration in our classroom. We have enjoyed learning and writing all about the festival and talking about how we celebrate different things!

World Book Day!

What a fantastic effort made by all! Everyone looked brilliant in their costumes for world book day, the school has been filled with book characters from so many different books! We have enjoyed listening to a range of stories and talking about our favourite books and characters! We have had prizes for the most creative costumes and the best story writers! What a great way to celebrate world book day! Reading is such a wonderful thing and it helps us learn so much as

Dr Zeuss says…

“The more you read, the more you know, the more your learn, the more places you will go!”

Have a lovely weekend everyone and keep reading!

Science Days – Habitats!

During our science days we have been learning about habitats. We worked in groups to recreate a habitat using a range of materials. We started by researching our given habitat, we used ipads to find out information and look at pictures. We also made notes, listed keywords and drew pictures to help us.

We were given key roles and worked together to create our finished product, they looked brilliant! After lunch we presented our habitats and all the information we had found out to our friends. We got to share our knowledge and learn from our friends about all of the other habitats.
