Welcome to our class page of the school website
This week we have taken our maths learning outside.
On Monday we had different challenges to complete using natural objects only.
We learnt lots about Space and the Planets. Please open the link below to see just what we learned.
Y2 Science Week
Year 2 have been out and about around the school grounds looking for different habitats. They found big habitats like the school field where grass and daisies grow and bumble bees visit. They also found smaller habitats like a log where slugs and woodlice live.
Why were there elephants in Leamington Spa?
On Thursday, Year 1 and Year 2 went on a trip to Royal Leamington Spa, as part of our topic on ‘Why were there elephants in Leamington Spa?’
We started in Jephson Gardens, where we were given a tour of The Glasshouse – there are plants from every continent apart from Antarctica, and then we crossed over The Parade to The Pump Rooms. We had so much fun learning about what life would have been like for children growing up in Leamington in the Victorian times.
We spotted lots of Leamington’s famous landmarks, and we were even given a tour of the old court room in The Town Hall. We were very disappointed that the tap wasn’t working for the spa water though – maybe next time!
After learning about healthy eating and the importance of having “5 a day”, Year 2 designed and made a healthy snack. Some groups made smoothies and other groups made fruit kebabs. We would like to say a massive thank you to Southam Tesco for giving us the fruit.
This week we have been learning how to be journalists! We have identified the main features of a newspaper report and have come up with our own catchy headlines. Today we found a shoe in our classroom. We used our journalist notepads to ask lots of questions about the shoe. Tomorrow, we will begin to write a newspaper report about it.
Year 2 have been learning about Christingle. Christingle means ‘Christ Light’ and is used to celebrate Jesus Christ as the “Light of the World”.
