We're going on a bear hunt! Today in school, we went to the wild garden area and bird hide to hunt for clues to find the names of teddy bears that were hidden.
We have been working so hard designing, making and evaluating our own vehicles this half term. Here we are with our finished models

Re-enacting a wedding! We had great fun today when Reverend Tanner came to school to help us to re-enact a wedding. We chose children to be the key participants and staged a Christian wedding outside in the outdoor classroom as our church. We discussed vows that the bride and groom take and what they mean. After our 'ceremony' we played party games at the 'reception'
We had to estimate how many smaller containers it would take to fill up a larger one. Having fun learning about capacity outdoors .
We have been exploring weight and mass in our maths lessons. Here we are using the balance scales to compare the weights of objects around the classroom.
We all had a great time visiting Crich Tramway Village!
History - this afternoon Year Two made their own timelines of different transport through history. They then completed a jigsaw of a transportation timeline. The children used words like 'past, centruy, decade, before, chronological, and time' to describe their timelines.

Christmas Party Fun!
A Victorian school day - On Tuesday, we had some first hand experience of being in a Victorian classroom. Miss Mumby was very strict! Our hands were checked to see how clean they were, we had to write with chalk and some children were made to wear the Dunce's hat, standing in the corner. Girls and boys had separate lessons and we did drill outside. We finished by reciting the Lord's Prayer. We are not sure if we would have liked to have been at school in the Victorian times!!
Children in Need! The children had a fabulous day, supporting Joe Wicks with his 24hr PE challenge and taking part in a range of activities which supported his 'Five to Thrive' campaign
Superhero Day! We have had great fun today during our superhero activity day. We have been superhero training, we wrote secret codes and even made up our own jingles! A fabulous day|!
Stags Football Training!
We had an exciting morning on Monday when the Stags came to do a football training workshop with us. We had so much fun dribbling a ball, practising our shooting skills and we even got to have a mini game! We are looking forward to our penalty shoot out session next week!
Maths - Place Value
In maths we have been making 2 digit numbers using tens and ones. We have done this in lots of different ways but here we are using place value charts to distinguish between the tens and ones.
Abbey Values - Respect
During our values afternoon we worked on the value of respect. We thought about ways of showing an apple respect and ways which didn't show the apple respect. When we cut into the apples, we saw that the one we respected was good and the one we didn't respect had gone bad. We then discussed this in relation to how disrespect might make someone feel inside.
