Dahl class had a very fun maths lesson today filled with lots of treats! We used buns and skittles to demonstrate how to recognise and find a half of something and then a quarter of something.
Dahl Class had the most amazing day at Yorkshire Wildlife Park last week! The sun was shining and all of the animals came out to see us and say hello. Our favourite animals were the giraffes, lions and of course, the polar bears!
We all looked amazing for World Book Day!
We had such a fun day visiting the pond and learning all about the animals that live inside it! We especially enjoyed helping to clean the pond and fetched fresh water to put into it to help the animals that live inside of the pond!
Yesterday in Dahl class we met Olympic medalist Lizzie Deignan (Armistead) who told us all about winning a silver medal at the London 2012 Olympics in the road cyclist race. The children got to ask Lizzie some questions about her career and they were super excited to speak with her!
During our Arctic WOW Day, we learnt all about the northern lights and made our very own northern light pictures - they are amazing!
Our amazing Arctic displays!
Science Day was so much fun as we built our own boats from materials that we brought in from home. We looked at what materials would be best to make a boat including materials that are waterproof but also strong.
We had a fantastic day yesterday on our trip to Middleton Railway and even ticked off one of our experiences to ride a train as part of our KS1 journey. The children also went on a lovely walk through Middleton Park and they learnt all about the Bell Pits and what they were used for. The children were amazingly well behaved and we all had a really lovely day!
As part of our journey back in time, we had lots of fun looking at how toys have changed over the years. We compared our own toys to toys from the Victorian era and had lots of fun playing with them.
This week, we went on a walk around our local area as part of our geography lessons to see what human and physical features we could see around us.
Here are some of the children in Dahl class that have planned and written up in neat their acrostic poems about autumn. They all worked very hard on these poems and they have turned out great!
This week is National Poetry Week and in year 2, we have been looking at acrostic poems. This is the poem we wrote as a whole class and later in the week, we will be writing our own acrostic poems about autumn.
In year 2, we made clocks last week to help them with their understanding of how to tell the time - They looked great!
