On the Move – Autumn 2018

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.IMG_5204 IMG_5205 IMG_5207 IMG_5208 IMG_5209 IMG_5211 IMG_5215 IMG_5220

 

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.

Walk on the Wild Side – Summer 2018 Update!

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!

Walk on the Wild Side – Summer 2018

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.

Fire! Fire! – Spring Term 2018

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.

All About Me – Autumn 2017

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!

Copsegrove Farm Visit

Class Two had an absolutely fantastic visit to Copsegrove Farm!! We spent the day in the woods, looking at geographical features and plants, as well as engaging in a whole variety of wonderful, inspiring activities! These included setting and then following treasure trails, cooking marshmallows and wraps by the fire, den building and one of the most favourite activities – making ‘tree trolls’ (faces made out of clay that the children pasted onto tree trunks!).

The children were all brilliant and all got fully and enthusiastically involved in every activity! It was fantastic to see how much they were enjoying their learning in a different, outdoor environment. A big thank you to all our adult helpers too, who also got fully involved in the day, especially with the den building, as well as getting messy making tree trolls!

Check out our photos below for lots of images of the children having a great time!IMG_3683 IMG_3694 IMG_3697 IMG_3699 IMG_3708 IMG_3710 IMG_3712 IMG_3713 IMG_3714 IMG_3715 IMG_3717 IMG_3718 IMG_3719 IMG_3722 IMG_3726 IMG_3728 IMG_3730 IMG_3731 IMG_3732 IMG_3733 IMG_3738 IMG_3739 IMG_3740 IMG_3741 IMG_3744 IMG_3745 IMG_3746 IMG_3748 IMG_3749 IMG_3752 IMG_3754 IMG_3760 IMG_3761 IMG_3762 IMG_3763 IMG_3769 IMG_3770 IMG_3771 IMG_3772 IMG_3774 IMG_3775 IMG_3777 IMG_3784 IMG_3785 IMG_3787 IMG_3790 IMG_3792 IMG_3796 IMG_3797 IMG_3799 IMG_3802 IMG_3804 IMG_3805 IMG_3813 IMG_3819 IMG_3827 IMG_3828 IMG_3829 IMG_3831 IMG_3832 IMG_3834 IMG_3835 IMG_3836 IMG_3837 IMG_3838 IMG_3839 IMG_3841 IMG_3843 IMG_3845 IMG_3847 IMG_3848 IMG_3850 IMG_3852 IMG_3854 IMG_3857 IMG_3858 IMG_3859 IMG_3863 IMG_3864 IMG_3865 IMG_3868 IMG_3870 IMG_3871 IMG_3873

Island Life – Summer 2017

We have had a busy time during this half term. Aside from learning about our new theme, the children have been busy working very hard to complete their SATs. They have all tried their best and showed a fantastic attitude and great concentration throughout. We are very proud of them all!

Our theme this term is looking at the United Kingdom, the geography of it, as well as its physical and human features. The children have so far enjoyed several outdoor activities, exploring plants around our school with our ‘scientist’ hats on. They have also enjoyed working with Y1 partners to explore the different human and physical features around our school (attached are photos of this session). The Year 2’s have also been on an exciting walk (in the pouring rain!!) around Bussage village to discover the different features we could see around there. Considering the amount of rain we experienced, the children were brilliant and kept up very high spirits throughout!!

We are looking forward to our visit to Copesgrove Farm just after the half term break and our Class Assembly, which will be later on in June.IMG_3636 IMG_3629 IMG_3625 IMG_3620 IMG_3618 IMG_3617 IMG_3616 IMG_3615 IMG_3614

Trip to Sudeley Castle

Class Two had a brilliant day at Sudeley Castle on Tuesday! We really enjoyed seeing lots of the things we have been learning about, such as arrow slits and battlements, but especially the models of Henry VIII and his six wives. We were lucky to meet Catherine Parr (Henry’s 6th wife) who lived at Sudeley Castle and who is buried there too – her tomb is in the Chapel in the castle grounds. The children also particularly enjoyed exploring the maze and the very large castle adventure playground! Thank you to our adult helpers, too, for giving up their time and who (hopefully!) enjoyed the day as much as we did!

Spring Term 2017 – Once Upon a Time

We are very excited to announce our Spring Term theme is ‘Once Upon a Time’! We will be using lots of different skills, especially how to be a good Historian, when researching all about Castles and life in the Medieval and Tudor times. We will also be learning all about Traditional Tales (which often begin ‘Once upon a time….’) as part of our English over the next few weeks.

We started our theme work with a fantastic workshop, run by the Freshwater Theatre Company’, which involved lots of drama, movement and fun! It was based around Castles and some of the different people that lived in Medieval Times. All the children thoroughly enjoyed it and we’re looking forward to lots more fun as the term continues! Please enjoy looking at some of our photographs from the workshop.
