Year 2 have had a busy spring term.
In January we were lucky enough to have a day out at Chester Zoo. It was freezing and it even started to snow but we managed to have a fun day. We saw lions, penguins, elephants and lots of other animals. The butterfly house was fantastic!
In music we learnt a song called Kye Kye Kule. We worked in groups to come up with actions. Two people sang the song and the other children echoed them. We had a great time learning our sing up song ‘Eye of the Tiger.’
We have been really busy in Art and DT. We have learnt about Joan Miro, a famous sculptor. We used different painting techniques to create pictures in his style and then copied his ideas to create our own magical realist sculpture.
For World Book Day we came to school dressed as our favourite book characters. We had a class full of Harry Potter and superheroes!
As part of our geography work on China, the children finished the topic with a food tasting session. Most children loved the rice and sweet and sour chicken, but the spring rolls didn’t go down well!
We have started to use Power of Reading for our English lessons. Our first book we have focused on is called The Dark by Lemony Snicket. The children loved the story and produced some amazing writing including arguments for and against the dark, a recount of the story from a different point of view and a set of instructions. The instructions informed people how to make a glow jar. We decided to use our instructions to make our own glow jars.
