In Science we have been learning all about germs and how to stop them spreading. We carried out an experiment to find out how far germs spread when you sneeze!
We used a water sprayer as a pretend sneeze!!! It was VERY funny! Then we measured how far the germs travelled. Some went more than 200 cm! Now we will always cover our mouths when we sneeze!!!
This week in PE we have been creating weather dances. We have to make ourselves into particular shapes to represent different weather types. Can you spot a whirling tornado, snow flakes drifting, spiky ice, gently blowing wind and shining sunshine? See if you can guess which shape we are making?
Yet another busy week in 2D! Our brains have been zap, zap, zapping! We have been persevering with some VERY tricky maths. We needed to remember our place value, partitioning AND empty number line skills! Here we are hard at work!
Last Tuesday we visited Christchurch Park as part of our Geography topic 'weather experts'. We all had a wonderful time and it was sooo exciting! We learnt to use a real compass and gave each other directions to move around the park. Then we made 'leaf art' pictures with conkers, twigs and leaves. Finally, we had great fun in the play area! Have a look at our photos:
This week we had a very special visitor. To link with our Science topic of 'Healthy Me' and our termly career visitor - the school cook came to visit us in our class. We asked her thoughtful questions using loud, clear voices.
Here are some facts we learnt:
This week we have been reading Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson. We have been thinking about adjectives to describe the dragon. We had to write a letter to the witch to warn her about the dragon! We have been sharing lots of other stories too with our reading buddies. We just LOVE stories! Which is your favourite?
We have been REALLY challenging ourselves this week with some super tricky maths work. Can you explain to your families all about partitioning? I bet your grown ups won't believe how hard you have been working. I wonder if they know all about 100s, 10s and units?
Well done 2D for a fabulous assembly! I am sure your grown ups were all VERY proud of you. You were all very brave and independent. We hope you all enjoyed hearing our monster adjectives and adverbs? Remember children - now we are in Year 2 we make sure we think of extra exciting and unusual vocabulary! Have a look at our monsters to remind yourself of our ideas.
Thank you to all of you who came to our Meet the Teacher meeting. We hope you found it useful. For those of you who were unable to attend here is all the information we shared:
After only 4 days in Year 2 we are feeling VERY grown up and independent already! Well done 2D. Mrs Dunne is very proud of you!
