Year 2 Scientists
The children have been Scientists this week, investigating the properties of materials by planning and carrying out some fair tests. They have used great teamwork, made thoughtful predictions and worked carefully to find out which materials to use in the design of a new flask.
KS1 Nativity- what a show!
The children gave two wonderful performances this week. They worked hard to learn the songs, words and dance actions to this year’s nativity ‘Whoopsie-Daisy-Angel’.
Year 2 said their lines with confidence and enthusiasm to tell the story brilliantly.
As their teacher I am extremely proud of all of them, what superstars!
What an exciting week!
The children enjoyed a fantastic drama workshop on Wednesday afternoon. They joined in brilliantly with all of the fun activities form the adventures of King Arthur and his knights of the round table.
Today the children learned about Hinduism in a series of great activities. Susmita Roy, our Hindu lady from Bengal shared her experiences with the children, developing their understanding of beliefs that may be different from their own. The children loved dressing up and dancing. The rangoli patterns they created with rice, pasta and lentils were amazing. The children listened carefully as Susmita explained about the special artefacts she had brought to share and then created some detailed observational drawings. The children shared books written in Hindi, Bengali and Urdu before enjoying a story and some drama based on the story of Diwali.
The children were amazing, they listened carefully and with real interest. They all took part enthusiastically and Susmita commented several times throughout the day about their fantastic attitude to learning. Super proud of you year 2!
Drama and Hindu day
Wow what an amazing start back to school!
The children have started an investigation into the 'missing underpants of Wellow', we think aliens are the culprits and are busy writing descriptions for the police to find them!
We also had our very own museum this week with artefacts that Florence Nightingale may have worn and used in her life time. The children studied them, asked questions and thought carefully about what these interesting, old items might tell us about this famous historical character.
