Lime Class Update - Spring 1
Year 2 Class update!
What a wonderful half term we have had in year 2. The children have thoroughly enjoyed their learning theme ‘Mix It Up’.
In English, we have read George’s marvellous medicine. We based our writing journeys on our book and have written instructions on how to make a potion and then stories about all the mischief we got up to in school when we drank our potion – very entertaining!
In maths, we have all enjoyed practical learning on measuring length in metres and centimetres and weight in grams and kilograms. The children particularly enjoyed measuring the distance from receptions classroom to our own!
In art, we have created fabulous pieces of silhouette potion bottle artwork by using our learning on tints and shades to create a gradient background. Our DT focus has been on healthy eating and the children all created their own wrap using food from the different food groups. The children under supervision used the appropriate knives, peelers and graters to prepare all the ingredients.
In history we have learnt about Florence Nightingale, Edith Cavell and Mary Seacole. We have made comparisons between the three nurses and discovered why they are significant.
We have also introduced a daily ‘mindfulness’ session which enables the children to acknowledge and work through all the different emotions that they experience.
Next half term we are beginning our ‘Ready Steady Grow!’ learning theme, where the children will learn all about plants within science, aerial maps in Geography and we are introducing a brand new unit on the history of our school, which will be very exciting!
Thanks for your continued support. We hope you have a restful break and we look forward to welcoming you back after half term.
