Angles, Adventure and Teeth!
Beech Class have been busy settling into Year 2 and have been doing lots of work! We recently had our Year 2 Adventure Evening where the children came back to school in the dark on a Friday night with the Year 2 Team. They did lots of outdoor activities such as den building and toasting marshmallows over a fire! The children had such a great time and were heard saying “This is the best day of my life!” We did an assembly to show the Year 2 parents and the rest of the school what we did and all the work we had done in English lessons about the evening.
In English we have been doing a variety of work around Adventure Evening such as writing poems and descriptive work. We have also been looking at BFI short films such as Tom Sweep where we explored adding speech marks, prediction and description skills. The children thoroughly enjoyed hot seating and pretending to be different characters from the short film.
In Cubes maths group we have been focusing on regular and irregular 2D shapes and their properties; including angles and lines of symmetry. The children have been doing lots of different activities such as sorting shapes into Venn and Carroll diagrams, folding shapes to find the lines of symmetry and going outdoors in the playground and looking for acute, obtuse and right angles!
In Science we have been looking at the topic of health and growth and part of that is about taking care of our teeth. We have been in ‘Tooth Defender’ training in class and are completing different challenges until the children reach ‘Tooth Defender’ status! Here are some pictures from our training lesson on how to brush our teeth properly!
