    PE - explore medium level shapes

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Today the children moved their low level shapes into medium level shapes. We also made our bodies into cat poses and we played a new warm-up game called Toilet Tag! The children showed very good reflection on their learning by explaining what they could do to improve on their actions next time.

    Class 2 are learning how to make low level shapes with good posture and balance. They have been putting the shapes together in a sequence using a start and finish position and have mirrored a partners shapes. So far we have worked on; straddle, pike, tuck, arch and dish. Fantastic effort everyone.

    PSHE recognise that working together can help me learn

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    The children were set the challenge of moving a hoop around a circle of friends without letting go of hands. They had to share ideas, negotiate and show respect to each others ideas. All the groups were successful and then chose a member of the group to award a certificate to. A lovely way to end the session with a lovely celebration.

    Year 2 built the 2 x table. We used bricks to count in 2s and make steps. We then used these steps to answer multiplication questions. Well done Year 2.

    Art

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We continued our learning in art by looking again at Aboriginal symbols and art. We then designed a tile and showed pattern and texture by adding dots and lines to a clay tile. It was a very calm and peaceful classroom whilst they all focused so hard.

    Maths

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    LP To interpret and devise instructions for following a simple route. Year 2 are trying very hard to learn words to help with directions. We are very good at left, right, middle, up and down. However, quarter turns being the same as right angle turns and then clockwise and anticlockwise are proving a little trickier. We went outside to help direct children around a hundred square. We will continue to work on this.

    PSHE

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    In PSHE this term Year 2 are learning all about goals. We started with creating a treasure chest and filled it up with the achievements we have made so far. This could be things like learning to swim or being a good friend. We then thought about what we haven't achieved yet but would like to. We each choose a goal and then thought about the steps we would have to take to achieve this goal.

    Art

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Year 2 created lots of dots and lines in different colours and shapes. First, we looked at lots of Aboriginal art and described the work of the artist to each other. Then we used some of the ideas of artists studied to create pieces of Aboriginal Art. We will then choose one of our designs to recreate on rain sticks.
