Dads, Magic Boxes and Sports Day!
Beech Class have been extremely busy in the last few weeks with the days being filled with a variety of fun activities. We have had our Year 2 trip, Dads into School day, Sports Day and swimming lessons just to name a few!
In English the children have written some amazing and imaginative poems, inspired by Kit Wright’s ‘The Magic Box’ poem. The children were encouraged to think of abstract and concrete nouns and came up with items they could put into their magic box. Some examples included: the magic from a beautiful unicorn’s horn; old, metal armour from World War 1 and secret spells whispered from a wizard’s tongue!
In Maths the Cubes group have been recapping their knowledge on making amounts of money and finding change. They have also been revising adding and subtracting 2 two digit numbers and proving their answers using the inverse operation. We are going to take advantage of the lovely, hot weather and do some practical capacity activities.
Dads into School was full of fun and lots of learning. We did a History lesson that involved orienteering and a quiz, we also did some Maths as well as English! We looked at the book ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ by Drew Daywalt. The children pretended to be a crayon themselves and wrote a letter to Duncan about whether they were happy or not!
Finally the children thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Look Out and learnt a lot about insects and minibeasts!
