Transition Morning (Wednesday 21st July 2021):
We were incredibly lucky to be able to have a wonderful transition morning before we broke up for the summer holidays. All of the children got to meet their new class teacher and the lovely LSAs who are going to be supporting us in Year 2. The children talked about where their new classroom was going to be, asked lots of questions, and discussed how they were feeling. We managed to play lots of fun games which helped us to get to know each other. The sun shone down on us and everybody left with huge smiles on their faces which was lovely to see!

Every Monday in Year 2 we go swimming! Each class takes it in turn to spend an hour in the pool. We are put into little groups (for our safety) and then we have great fun gaining confidence in the water and learning how to swim. It is such a fantastic time, we all love it and wish we could stay all day!
In our Science lessons, we have been learning all about how animals and humans need food to survive. We had learnt that there are different types of animals (carnivores, herbivores and omnivores) and that these animals all eat different types of food. We were all interested to know what food dinosaurs ate many years ago. Mrs Milsom was very keen to show us some dinosaur poo (playdough) that she had discovered. We were able to examine the poo to find out what the dinosaurs had eaten. We found that some had eaten meat (there was remnants of food in these) and some had eaten plants (there were shredded leaves in these). What a great Science lesson!
In Year 2, we are exploring story writing using the theme of pirates! The children have been very creative with their vocabulary and have thought really hard about their word choices. The children have worked incredibly hard and we can't wait to read their finished stories. Here are some examples of our preparation work...
In English this week, we have been focusing on the story 'The Bridge'. In the story, there was a dilemma between a grizzly bear and a grumpy elk! First, we had to sequence the events in the story. Then, we wrote key vocabulary to describe the characters and used conjunctions to connect sentences before finally re-telling the story in our own words.
In English this week, we have been focusing on the story 'The Lion Inside'. We have been making predictions based on the front cover, writing key vocabulary to describe the lion and the mouse, acting out scenes from the story and sympathising with character feelings.
