Making rice crispy buns
We have made some delicious buns today! We are going to use these steps to inspire our instruction writing next week. We even got to taste them. They were yummy and went down well with tough critics.
World Book Day!
On Thursday, we all dressed up as our favourite characters from different books. We had lots of fun discussing our books, reading our books and acting out different books in drama.
Growth Mindset Week
As part of National Growth Mindset Week, Year 2 have been looking at how we can challenge ourselves and how our 'never give up' attitudes can help us succeed.
We enjoyed our team building building games which not only helped with our social skills but also our communication skills!
We especially enjoyed building towers with no hands!!!
They all floated! - Dahl class
We tested our boats today in water! We think Anka and Pana would be impressed with our designs!
Polar Bear Fact Files
Anka and Pana needed our help! The ice was melting around them and needed a boat! Today year 2 used our science knowledge on materials to build a boat.
On Wednesday we received an email from our Arctic friends, Anka and Pana. Their Grandma had told them that they needed to be very careful online because not everyone is who they say they are. We made our own masks to show how easy it is to pretend to be someone you’re not using a fake identity.
We have been looking at Arctic poems this week. We have been creating our own acrostic poems about the Arctic. Take a look at some of our amazing poems below...
