We have had a fun start to the school year with our new theme ‘All About Me’. Over the term, we will be learning all about the human body, including body parts, how we change as we grow and how to keep fit and healthy.
We are very excited that we will be having a visit from the Science Explorer Dome after the half term break, where the children will get to learn even more about our Science in a very exciting environment.
We have also been using the story Funnybones in our English work, which the children have very much enjoyed and they have been producing some great writing from it as well!
We have already produced some lovely work about ourselves and the human skeleton. Some examples of this are below. We look forward to lots more fun as the term goes on.
Class Two had a fantastic visit to the Masjid E Noor Mosque in Gloucester and Gloucester Cathedral today.
We have been learning about Christianity and Islam over the year so it was wonderful to see these two beautiful places of worship in real life!
At the Mosque, we had a very interesting talk from the Imam, heard some prayers in Arabic and even got to try on some Muslim clothes and experience how Muslims wash before praying!
In the Cathedral, we looked at some of the features of the building as well as creating some lovely arts and crafts, including candle holders, chalices and stained glass windows.
Check out our pictures below for a peek at our exciting and informative day!
Class Two had a fantastic time today on our trip to Copsegrove Farm, as part of our theme Island Life.
We took part in lots of brilliant activities, including identifying different trees, recognising human and physical features and pretending to be trees!
The children especially enjoyed toasting marshmallows and wraps (which were delicious!), creating their own dens, making ‘tree trolls’ (clay faces on tree trunks), and setting and following treasure trails.
Our photos of the day are below:
We had a brilliant time on our trip to Sudeley Castle on Tuesday this week! We saw lots of features we have been learning about and loved seeing Henry 8th and his six wifes!
A definite highlight was the Castle Adventure Playground and the Maze! See our photos below for a sneaky peak at our fun!
We have had a great start to our new theme, where we will be learning all about Castles in the past.
We had a fantastic Castles workshop, which involved lots of role-play and the children learnt lots of new facts! See the pictures below for a little sneaky peak at what we did!
We are looking forward to learning lots more and becoming brilliant historians in the process!
Well. it’s been an exciting start to the new school year in Class Two!
We began our new theme with a fun afternoon outside testing out which forces are used to move ourselves or different equipment, making use of the Trim Trail, Adventure playground and lots of PE resources.
We also had a brilliant day where the children brought in their bikes, scooters or skateboards and had lots of fun riding them around the playground or the roundabout. We thought carefully about how the ‘pushing’ force was the main way we made our vehicles move.
Our PE this term is run by Atlas Sports and we are concentrating on improving our Gymnastics skills through playing lots of fun games and activities.
We are looking forward to enjoying lots of interesting activities and learning experiences as the term goes on.
Well, our busy term has continued with lots of exciting learning and activities going on! The children have found out lots of information about animals, compared features and life in the UK and Africa, and are creating some lovely pieces of art! The children enjoyed a walk around Bussage to explore the different physical and human features, which they then compared to a village in Kenya.
We had great fun at our inter schools sports afternoon where the children competed in games and activities with pupils from several other schools, and despite the extreme heat, they all had a brilliant time!
We also had a fantastic time at the Mosque and Gloucester Cathedral this week where the children learnt lots about the religions of Islam and Christianity, how they worship and live their lives, as well as of course exploring the impressive buildings themselves!
We finished our week this week with a fantastic class assembly where the children all performed amazingly well, showing off to parents, friends and the school all the things we have been learning about! Well done, Class Two!
Well we’ve had an exciting start to our Summer term theme with a fabulous visit to Cotswold Wildlife Park today! It was brilliant to see all the very active animals and we had a very interesting and informative talk about ‘Animals of the African Savannah’. We were extremely proud of how well-behaved all the children were and everyone seemed to have a fantastic time! A big thank you to all our parent helpers as well! Check out our photos below for a few highlights.
Our theme this term will be focusing on, of course, animals – those found in Africa and the UK. We will be exploring life in our school grounds where we often find lots of minibeasts! We will be particularly exploring the different animal groups and their habitats.
We’ll also be finding out about life in Africa, in comparison to life here in the UK and are looking forward to a talk from Mr Ferguson in the coming weeks about his experiences in Kenya!
We will keep you posted with photos and news on all the exciting things we learn about as the term goes on.
We had an exciting start to our Spring Term theme, Fire! Fire!, with a workshop where we went ‘back in time’ to 1666!
The children learnt all about the people involved in and events of The Great Fire of London, through brilliant drama activities and role play. The children also took part in a wonderful ‘fire’ dance! Check out our pictures below for a sneaky peak at our activities!
We are also having Ninja Kids for our PE this half term and the children thoroughly enjoyed their first session, learning some new moves, names and how to use control in their movements.
Welcome to the new Year Two class of 2017-2018!
We are looking forward to an exciting term, full of lots of different activities whilst we are getting to know each other! Our theme this term is ‘All About Me’ and we have already been finding out lots about our bodies, including some of the internal organs humans have!
We will be thinking about growing up and how to stay healthy, and are especially looking forward to a visit from the Explorer Dome – a huge dome set up in the hall which the children go into – the theme of our session will be about healthy bodies.
After the half term, the children will get to design and make their own fruit salads, in between practising for the Christmas Play!
We will keep you updated as the term goes on with all the brilliant things we do!
