Red Nose Day in Y2

 

Thank you to everyone for their generosity to CAFOD and Comic Relief today.

The children enjoyed hearing from our CAFOD speaker how our donations make a difference to real people in need in our world.

Y2 Class Assembly for St Patrick’s Day

First of all a huge thank – you to all the mums and dads who sent in costumes for the play. The children looked fantastic and they really enjoyed it too. Well done to all the readers, dancers, singers and actors who took part. It is always lovely to see the children’s confidence increase, and the assembly has certainly helped to do that. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all. Have a great weekend.

Great narrators!

St Patrick and friends!

Fearsome pirates?

Dancing sheep!

Science Week in Y2

Collecting observations by the pond

What a sunny afternoon!

By the field.

What is growing?

During science Week in Y2 we went out and gathered information about living things in our pond and field habitats and we have considered why certain plants and animals live in some habitats but not in others. We are going to draw this together with some thinking about the scientist Charles Darwin and the way in which he kept his study notebooks as he travelled around the world, and the great discoveries this led him to make.

Thank – you to Zuzanna’s and to Emily R’s mums for giving us an excellent afternoon on Friday. We learnt about caring for animals as Zuzanna’s mum is a vet. We were visited by Pepsi the dog and some sweet little guinea pigs too!

We learnt about radiography as this is ¬†Emily’s mum’s job. We carried out a really interesting experiment with light sensitive paper to see how images can be created. Which objects did we use to make our shapes?

 

Health and Hygiene with Florence Nightingale

On 9th March we really enjoyed our day at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet finding out about health and hygiene at the time of Florence Nightingale. We heard all about Florence’s inspirations and achievements and we acted out going with her to the Crimean War. Once there, we were either wounded soldiers or nurses.

It was a beautifully sunny day which added to the enjoyment for all. Well done to the children for asking great questions to help the learning, and thanks to all who helped!

The story of the injured dog.

What should Florence take to the Crimean War?

Off to the Crimean War!

More wounded soldiers!

What’s wrong with this soldier?

 

Horrible Science – update

We found out that the bacteria from our hands had turned the oranges blue, green, black and white with mould over the two weeks they were in the bag. Our conclusion is that there are always germs and bacteria on our hands and we should wash them carefully before eating!
