In Art, we have been having fun designing and creating our own carnival masks.
The children had great fun designing, using paper-mache to strengthen and painting their own carnival masks. With Obama class, we also created a giant mask that is currently on display in Bridgwater Library.
Using chalk to create a black-hole.
The children experimented using chalks to create their very own black-hole. They also gave the other Year 2 classes a presentation on Stephen Hawking.
In Maths this term, we have been learning to add and subtract using the column method. We are currently investigating multiplying using grouping and arrays.
The children have been using Drama to investigate how they can keep themselves safe on-line. We helped Smartie the penguin to make the right choices.
In Science, we have been learning about the difference between things that are alive, dead and never been alive. We then moved on to investigating the 7 life processes that all living things need to survive. Ask your child about MRS GREN and see if they can remember all 7!
The children have worked very hard to learn about the purpose of inverted commas and how to use them in their writing. We started by placing speech in a speech bubble, then wrapping what a character says in inverted commas. Finally, they wrote sentences independently using all of their learned skills.
In History this term, we have been 'Time-Travellers. We had a wonderful lesson investigating rationing, where the children were given different foods that were rationed in the war and they were asked to share them between the seven days of the week to feed their families. They had great fun trying to divide and egg into seven!
We then used more rationed food to create our own soup. They children had great fun preparing and cooking the ingredients.
