Our Beautiful World!

CASE - Today was our last CASE session with Mr Fowkes and he presented us with our graduation certificate. We have learned so much about safety in the home, around school and when we are out. We know who to call if we are in trouble and we understand that there are many trusted adults we can speak to if we are unsure. Thank you Mr Fowkes!

Here we are sorting 3D shape and here are some of our amazing 3D shape creations!

On World Book Day we became prop-makers, making plates of dinner to go with our poem 'I've Got a Ball of Pastry' by Julia Donaldson. We will be performing our poem at the upcoming Poetry Festival on 25th March

Food Chains were our next stop on our animal adventure. We learnt all about the different elements of the food chain including the producer, primary consumer secondary consumer and thought about which animals prey on other animals. We also considered which animals in the food chains were herbivores, carnivores or omnivores.

Look at our perfect penguin Christmas cards! We had great fun making them slide across the snow!

In Art we have sketched some pictures of Victorian toy soldiers. We looked closely at the detail on the soldiers and used different pencils and effects to create our sketches. We then made a duplicate sketch and collaged it with different types of paper.

In PSHE we have been reading a book about a well mannered crocodile. We thought about the things we can do to show good manners and made a big spider diagram of them. Next we worked as a class to create an acrostic poem to reflect good behaviour choices.

We were invited to Newstead Abbey to celebrate a Victorian Christmas with Mr Webb and the staff of his great house. There we made gifts, played games, watched a magic lantern show and even sang a Christmas carol! We had a fantastic time!

RE - In school this week, we have been preparing for our Harvest Festival. Continuing on our theme from transition week in the summer, Year 2 researched the crops grown in Russia and in Spain. As you can see from the first photo, we found quite a lot! We then decided to make a potato salad using some of these ingredients. We also found out that potato salad is a traditional dish of Russia!

We have been busy making our superhero accessories this week in DT. We designed and made cuffs, capes, masks and badges for our very own alter-ego superheroes. We will be using these later in the term when we have our superhero day!

In English this week, we have explored the use of commas when writing a list. We did this practically using a list of equipment we would need to make a superhero accessory, inserting the commas and one and on whiteboards.

Science

In science this week, we have been exploring materials so that we understand why objects are made from specific materials. This will help us to make decisions in DT next week when we will be designing and making a superhero accessory.

First we went outside to look at the materials of the objects on our playground. We discussed the suitability of different materials and why they had been chosen to make the object. After this, we handled different material samples and came up with words to describe them.

English

In English this week we have been looking at vocabulary. We started with 'boring' words like 'big' and 'good' and used thesauruses and of course our brains to think of better words for them. Look at our ladders.

PSHE

Our talking point this week centred around the book 'I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato' by Lauren Child. We looked at the different foods that are healthy and tried some different fruits: pomegranate, apricot, figs and kiwis.

Geography

We explored the seven continents of the world this week in our Geography lessons. We listened to a fabulous song and played a game with a blow up globe!

Could you be a superhero?

This week our topic kicked off with a visit from some real life superheroes in our community. The local PCSOs and members of Blue Watch at Mansfield Fire Station came to talk to us about the personal qualities and attributes they must demonstrate in order to do their jobs. We then thought about our own personal attributes and the qualities we posses and wrote them inside a person outline. We had a great afternoon!

Maths - Place value

This week have been learning all about the tens and ones in a 2 digit number. We have partitioned 2 digit numbers using equipment like dienes, numicon and place value counters. We have also used the part whole model and place value charts to help us.  We also wrote number sentences after partitioning and demonstrated how to recombine the number.

Communities and Belonging

We started the year by thinking about the different communities we belong to, whether it be at home, at school, as part of a club or a religion.
