What have we been up to in Spring?

Florence Nightingale Trip

On the 4th March, Year 2 went on a school trip to the Florence Nightingale Museum in London.  We met Miss Nightingale who told us all about her life and what she had to do when she got to Scutari Hospital.  We then had a chance to look around the Museum at all the different artefacts, including her stuffed pet owl Athena!  Some of us got to dress up as a soldier from the Crimean War and as a nurse from the Victorian time.  After lunch, we went and had a look at the River Thames, the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament before getting back on the coach to school.  We really enjoyed the trip to the museum and London!

World Book Day

For World Book Day on the 7th March we were allowed to wear colourful clothes because we were looking at the book ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’.  We read the book and did a variety of activities linked to it, including writing letters as one of the crayons.  In the afternoon, some of us had a chance to share our work from the day in the World Book Day assembly.

Science Day

On the 14th March, we all had a Science Day.  In the morning, we experimented with bodily functions and looked at how germs can spread using a spray bottle and some paper.  We were surprised to see how much difference there was between blowing your nose with your hands and a tissue. In the afternoon, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Science Oxford who showed us lots of mini experiments, including what material would be better for an umbrella.

 

Maths Day

For Maths Day on the 28th March, Year 2 had a go at Sudoku.  We started off by trying picture versions of the game before trying it with smaller numbers.  We had lots of fun working together to work out the combinations.  We also had a visit from a company who played some fun Maths games with us involving shape.  It was quite tricky but we all worked together to get the answers in the end.

 

 

What have we been up to in Autumn?

Safari

Our topic for the second half of the term has been Safari.  We first looked at the world map and identified the different continents.  We focused on Africa and talked about the climate and why most safaris are located there.  Kenya was the main country that we looked at but we also explored others like South Africa.  We learnt about the various different animals that you can find in a safari park, and Mrs Meyers even showed us some photos that she took when she went on safari. 

         

 

Farm

Our topic for the first half of the term has been all about the farm.  We learnt about the different types of farms and some of the animals that you find there.  We then got to visit a real working farm for ourselves and meet some of these animals.  Farmer Claire told us all about the different jobs that she has to do to keep the cows happy.  We got to feed some of the chickens and pet the sheep.  We were surprised at how their wool felt.

   

We had such a great day!

 

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

To tie in with our farm topic, we learnt the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff for English. 

 

We practiced it and rehearsed it before changing it into the Three Brown Mice. This was our first piece of writing for the year and we are so proud of how much we have written!

 

Harvest Assembly and One Can Trust

This year we were the first class to do our class assembly and it was all about Harvest Festival.  We used this opportunity to raise awareness of the local charity One Can Trust who provides support in times of crisis.  We asked all of the children in the school to donate various food items which will be made into food parcels for those in need.  In our assembly we talked about the work that we have been doing about farms as well as educating people on the different ways that people celebrate Harvest time.

Thank you to everyone for your donation of items for our charity.

What a great start to Year 2!
