On Tuesday 2 Whitebeam visited St. Mary Redcliffe Church. We went to answer our big question. What do Christians think God is like? We met Sarah who told us the parable of the lost son using puppets. We designed and created stain glass windows to show the story and had a treasure hunt around the church.

Write your own story about a Fox. 

 

Make a treasure map. Give directions to get the treasure (forward, backward, quarter turn, 3/4 turn, 1/2 turn, clockwise and anti-clockwise)

 

Design your own animal. Draw the animal then write a description underneath. What does it look like? How does it move? What does it eat? Where does it live?

Owl Man Visit

 

This visit was very exciting because we got to stroke and hold the owls.(Milo).

 

I am feeling happy because I stroked an owl called Basil who is a European eagle owl. (Michalina).

 

Amanda says 'When the big owl looked at me he looked adorable'.

 

Beth says ' I was surprised how soft Basil's feathers felt'.

 

Mubarez says ' Whizz was so cute and beautiful'. 

 

It was cool when the Owl Man came to visit because we got to see the largest type of owl in the world! (Walt).

 

Sammy liked the different colours of the owls eyes. They were yellow, brown and orange.

 

Iolo was amazed how still the owls stayed when we had our photo taken with them.

 

Phobe at first thought basil was a bit scary but when I stroked him I felt much calmer.

  • Find and read some poetry books. Which poem is your favourite?
  • Can you write a poem about an owl or a pussy cat?
  • Can you research about owls? How many interesting facts can you find out?
  • Find 10 things in the house and measure them with a ruler.

DanceFest at Ashton Park Secondary School

 

This week Year 2 performed dances at our dance festival. We watched 8 other schools perform their dances and then it was our turn. We were a bit nervous at first but once the music began we remembered our moves and had a great time! Amii and Keturah.

This week in Numeracy, Miss Stone set us a challenge to make 2d shapes from lollipop sticks. We had 18 lollipop sticks and had to make octagons.

 

Beth 'You can only make 2 hexagons because octagons have 8 sides and 8 + 8 = 16 and then you have 2 lollipop sticks left over.

Here are some things to try to extend school learning at home:

  • Visit the library and share stories together. Can you find any books to do with our topic?
  • This term we are learning all about materials. How many different materials do you know about? How many objects can you find made out of them?
  • Use the top marks website to play English and Maths games: http://www.topmarks.co.uk/
  • Use clocks around the house to tell the time. We need to know o’clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to.
  • Play dotty 6 dice game
  • Write a book review about your favourite story.
  • Write your own poem using adjective, noun, verb pattern.
  • Learn your times tables and spelling for your tests on Fridays.

The Great Fire Of London Workshop

4.10.17

 

We learnt a song called 'London's Burning' and we sang it together. We also learnt a new dance. It was called the 'Fire Dance'. Mary gave us either a red, yellow or orange ribbon and we swished it around to make the fire. There was music in the background which we listened to as we were dancing. We remembered how windy it was during the fire and it was really fun. Mary told us that the fire was huge and destroyed large parts of London and only 6 people died. Mary showed us pictures of King Charles, Samuel Pepys and Christopher Wren. We also looked at pictures of the fire. Samuel Pepys wrote a diary using a quill and that is how we know so much about the fire today. He also buried cheese, wine and his diary in a hole in the garden so that it would not burn. We did lots of acting and pretended to be a child, a butcher, an apple seller, a baker.

 

It was a great workshop and we learnt lots!!
