We were so lucky to have Haroon's parents come in to talk to us about Ramadan. They read us a lovley story and we got to take part in a fantastic Oreo challenge. We carefully broke the Oreo in the middle and used spoons to scrape out the filling to create one of the phases of the moon. What a brilliant activity!
In STEM week we met up with our Buddy Class. One half made some bouncy custard balls and the other half used the laptops to do some plastic tagging. We looked at lots of pictures of beaches and had to identify the plastic and select which type of plastic it was. The children now know how important it is to dispose of plastic properly and more importantly to re-use plastic when possible!
During STEM week we had a special visit from Soly and his team at the Francis Crick Institute. They told us all about germs and viruses and how diseases are spread. We got to have a go at using microscopes and we tried on a scientist coat and goggles! We had so much fun and there may be a few budding scientists among us!
We have produced some amazing artwork using our photographs and oil pastels!
A big welcome to the new Otter class. We have had a busy but fun first couple of weeks in year two. We have been doing some fantastic writing about our summer holidays and we have been learning to count in 2's, 5's and 10's! We have explored our emotions and produced some fantastic oil pastel portraits. Stay tuned for photos.
