Our visit to Earlsdon Retirement Village

We had a lovely afternoon spending time with the residents at Earlsdon Retirement Village today. We played games, read with them and asked them questions that we came up with as a class. They really enjoyed it too!

Some children then went and planted in their greenhouse! We will go back in the summer to see how they have grown!

Finally we wowed them with our amazing singing voices! We sang a mixture of songs and the children did brilliantly! Miss Clarke was so proud.

Year 2 trip to the Transport Museum

Year 2 had a good day on Friday at the Transport Museum.

First we did some activities where we compared bikes throughout time, looked at the structure of a bike and what makes it safe, had a go on a scooter with rubber wheels and with wooden wheels and then did a science experiment where we found out that rubber stops quicker than metal which is why they are good on tyres!

Then we walked around the museum and had a look at the different cars, bikes, buses and taxis!

Then we had some chilled time drawing some bikes!

We have had a brilliant morning in Year 2.

We learned about St Francis and then did a reading comprehension about him. Then we thought of ways that we could be helpful like him and wrote 5 things down. After breaktime we had a party to celebrate him! Thank you parents for sending in some yummy snacks!

We are published authors!

Here are just some of the stories that the children in Year 2 have published this week. They have worked so hard to include exciting vocabulary in their adventure story and I have LOVED reading them all! I’m very proud of them and they should be too!

Y2 at the Walled Garden!

We finally managed to get to the Walled Garden today! First we listened to find out how to plant potatoes. We needed to space them out evenly and then cover them with soil. They will grow over the summer so we are really keen to check on them to see how they have grown! Then we planted them and covered them using a trowel.

Next, we walked around the garden looking at some of the other plants which have been planted there. There were tomatoes and turnips as well as lots more vegetables!

Miss Clarke thought it would be very cruel to take us to Allesley Park without having a play so we walked down to the park and had a short go on the swings and equipment. We had a great time!

Boat making!

Firstly I just wanted to say a huge thank you for sending in the plastic bottles and egg boxes! The children had a great afternoon designing, testing and evaluating their boats. Some were more effective than others but we talked about what we would do differently next time! Here are some pictures of our creations.

Science afternoon fun

Here are some pictures from our fun afternoon of Science activities. If you forgot to bring in your £1 yesterday please send it in ASAP, we were raising money for CAFOD. Thank you in advance!

Brightening up the forest school!

A huge thank you to Mrs Elkins who has helped the children in Year 2 create this beautiful mural on the fence in the forest school. The children have added their own mini beast to the fence which will hopefully be there for years to come. It has brightened up the forest school area and we can’t wait for the other year groups to see it!

Listening to Jesus’ instructions

This week in RE we learned about the Wedding of Cana. We learnt that Jesus gave instructions to people which they were surprised by, but they did it and a miracle happened. Then we thought about what Jesus is asking us to do. Here are some of the children’s responses.

Consolidating our maths learning in Forest School

Year 2 used their forest school slot this week to recap the things that they have learnt in the classroom. First, we went on a numbers hunt to find odd and even numbers.

Then we made 2D shapes out of sticks and stones. Do you recognise some of these shapes?
