In order to prepare for our tests this week, we took to the outdoor classroom and put our maths skills into practice on the new chalk boards. Using the super chalk pens donated to us by the PTFA, we worked out halves, quarters and solved missing number problems whilst working in small groups.
After watching out caterpillars munching their way through a week’s worth of food and crawling around their special house, we finally saw them create cocoons and emerge as butterflies this week! We had a lovely afternoon in our school grounds as we set them free to flutter through the trees and bushes yesterday. However, there were a couple that just didn’t want to leave us – they hung around for some photographs before disappearing on the summer breeze…
Before our special tests this week, we had a lovely breakfast of hot chocolate, biscuits and fruit. It set us up well and helped us concentrate to the best of our ability. All the children in year 2 worked hard and performed brilliantly!
This is one of our favourite games at the moment! We love working as a team to dodge the opponents ball and rescue our own players from being caught. We can follow the rules and think tactically to secure a win for our team!
Each week Jill from Blackburn Rovers comes in to teach us gymnastics skills. This week we have been learning about ‘basic stance’ and the ‘straddle position’. We used a range of apparatus to practise them!
