We have been thinking of similes and using these to reassure Silly Billy.
as thin as a pencil
as hot as lava
as fluffy as candy floss
as vicious as a dinosaur
as soft as a pillow
as nervous as a deer
as big as a giant
Can you think of any more?
In English we are reading the book Silly Billy. Billy is rather a worrier - can you remember all the things he was worried about? I wonder why he thinks hats are frightening? Luckily his Grandma helped him by giving him some worry dolls. Can you explain what happened at the end of the story?
Year 2 have had an exciting week, heading out on their first Year 2 trip to Christchurch park. We feel incredibly lucky how dry the morning turned out and we were able to participate and enjoy some fantastic outdoor learning.
We enjoyed using compasses putting our knowledge of North, South, East and West to use, looking for key landmarks and looking new ones. We have been learning about compasses in Geography and using the map of Christchurch park to identify landmarks, the children were surprised at how much bigger the pond was compared to on the map!
We then used the opportunity to explore forest schooling, for Art we scavenged for interesting Autumnal objects to create pictures and nests for animals.
we have continued our learning of Christchurch park in schoola and have completed arial view drawings of the park and in our sketch books continued drawing from a picture taken on the park. Please take a look at our work below.
We would like to thank all the parent helpers who attended the trip and helped make it very successful.
