STEAM Week was very exciting in Year 2W! The children discussed careers that could do that involved Science. They were amazed to discover that Science is everywhere in the world. The children also found out that they could clean coins using tomato ketchup! They loved getting their hands all sticky.
The children moved outside to do more experiments involving water. I few people got wet but it was part of the fun.
During Multi-Cultural Week, the parents of some of the children were invited into the classroom to tell the children about their culture. Anas' mother came in and told the children how to count and write the letters in Arabic. Michael's parents told the children how to count in Mandarin. The next day, Kinjal's mother came in and told the children about her clothes and wedding.
The children of Year 2 donned their checked shirts and cowboy hats to have rootin' tootin' time during the school dance festival. They toe-tapped and grapevined along to 5,6,7,8 by Steps.
The children took part in a circuit to improve their fitness. They did a minute at each station and then finished off the session by running around the school grounds. The children enjoyed it but were exhausted at the end!
Golden Time - Finger Knitting
This term the children are learning how to finger knit! They found it a little tricky at first but hopefully it will get easier as the weeks progress.
All children who managed to get 95.6% and above were rewarded by going on the fantastic party bus! The children danced to classic party tunes as well as getting dressed up in various hats and wigs. Can you guess who the children are?
The children applied their fine motor skills to cut intricate shapes out to make a Mothers' Day.
Year 2W celebrated World Book Day by getting dressed up as their favourite book characters. We worked together to decorate the classroom door so it looked like the front cover of 'Six Dinner Sid'. The children also took part in a book swap where they were able to bring and swap a book with someone in the class.
Bring Your Parent To School
'Bring Your Parent To School' was a great success! The children showed off their artistic skills and so did the parents.
During Golden Time the children were taken to the school library by Mrs Cummings. The children were told about the library and how to find books. They were then set a challenge to find books by certain authors and topics. The children had a great time!
The children have been getting in the Christmas spirit. Last week, they had a delicious Christmas dinner and also made biscuits to sell at the school fair. This week the children have been performing their Christmas production, as well as making Christmas cards and calendars. Next wee,k they will singing carols and attending their Christmas party.
We had a special visitor for our Children In Need event. Pudsey Bear came to school to see all the children. The children raised money by coming into school in non-uniform and were able to win prizes. In the afternoon, some children from Year 6 ran a colouring competition with another chance to win a prize.
The children used their fine motor skills to make a variety of different poppies to mark Remembrance Day. They made poppies out of modelling clay, tissue paper, paper and also their hands.
