Christmas RE Day
In year 2, we have been finding out about the annunciation. We found out how angels are part of the Christmas story and discussed how Mary would have felt when the angel appeared in front of her.
Music - Call and Response
In our music this half term we have been learning about West African call and response songs linked to animals. We used instruments to represent animals, copied rhythms and learned traditional Ghanaian call and response songs.
PSHE - Tangram
Today we discussed what the word ‘cooperate’ means and what its role is in teamwork. We explored the importance of working together and cooperating with others and thought about the skills that we need whist doing this. We then practised these skills when we tried to complete a Tangram puzzle together.
DT - Making Spring Rolls
Year 2 have been busy making spring rolls. During this, we used cutting and mixing skills and also had to work well with our partner. We enjoyed making them. Most of us had a try of them once they had been cooked although I think we enjoyed making them more than we did eating them!
As a school, we have created a Remembrance Garden in memory of the late Queen Elizabeth II. We have planted lots of spring bulbs and a beautiful Queen Elizabeth rose in her memory.
Science - Habitats - Animal Experience
Year 2 enjoyed meeting and cuddling a real-life Meerkat during the visit from Animal Magic last week. Jabba the meerkat was happy to be passed around the group and even wanted kisses off the children. They also got to hold a giant millipede, giant African snail and stroked an owl during the visit. The children were brilliantly behaved and loved seeing unusual animals like scorpions and chameleons too. This helped all the children learn more about the habitats and adaptations of meerkats and other animals for their science lessons.
