As part of our current Science topic, we have been learning about how having a balanced diet and exercising can help our bodies to be fit, strong and healthy.
We tried different types of exercise and thought about the effect it had on our bodies.
We looked at the Ten Commandments in RE.
We acted out the story of Moses being given the Ten Commandments by God.
In Science we worked in groups to match animals to their young.
We learned the names for many baby animals, including some we had never heard of before.
In Computing we used information on a website to answer questions.
We looked at an online animal encyclopedia and found out lots of fascinating facts.
In Music we are learning how to play simple pieces of music on tuned percussion.
We are working hard to improve our reading and comprehension skills.
One of the ways we do this is by reading books and answering questions about them using Reading Bug.
In Maths we have been looking at 2D shapes.
We sorted them in different ways according to their properties, including curved sides/straight sides, line of symmetry/no line of symmetry and vertices/no vertices.
We had a great time performing a dance for Black History Month.
As part of the whole school RE day about Co-operation, we worked in pairs and small groups to act out different scenarios where co-operation was needed to resolve a problem.
We had so much fun working together when practising and performing our role-plays!
This week we learned about the next Jewish celebration in this term’s RE topic: Sukkot.
We found out that at this festival, Jews remember when God kept their ancestors safe when they were in the desert by making sure they had enough food and water.
We learned that at this festival, Jewish people build a Sukkah Hut, where they eat their meals for seven days and spend time with family and friends.
We worked in pairs to build and decorate our very own Sukkah Huts.
Matthew Cornish, our school's ICT support teacher, came to talk to us about being safe when using the Internet. We learned that we must not share personal information, like our full names, addresses and passwords.
This week we began learning about the Jewish New Year festival,
We found out that Jewish people celebrate by eating apples dipped in honey, because they hope that the coming year will be sweet, happy and full of good things.
In maths we have been ordering and comparing numbers.
We had fun playing a game to help us identify numbers that are in between a pair of numbers.
Welcome back to a new school year and to our class page!
I am pleased to be teaching Year 2 again this year.
