We started the term off with an egg-citing project! Our aim was to keep our eggs as safe as possible and build a rocket that once launched into the air would protect the egg from cracking! We needed to think carefully about the design of our rocket, the materials we needed to use and where best to position our egg to keep it from smashing.
The children enjoyed reading the story ' Tea Party Rules'. We thought carefully about the rules we follow when having dinner at school and have made sure we were good role models for the new Reception children. At the end of the week we practised our rules by hosting our very own tea party! The children remembered they needed to eat daintily, use good manners and not chew with their mouths open.
This term Year 2 have experienced weekly yoga sessions! They have improved their posture, well being and balance and have had good fun learning new poses and games.
The children have taken it in turns to bring our book of the term 'Pumpkin Soup', home to share. We have learnt all about being a good friend and the importance of sharing and taking turns. At the book event day, everyone had the chance to taste and season different soups and create their own silly soups. The children showcased their fantastic ICT skills when they created digital art of the characters in the story! Niki the storyteller captured all of our imaginations with her fantastic, lively stories.
Next it was time to celebrate Harvest and the children loved performing their songs and poems in our special assembly. Look at all of the fantastic food that was donated to Studley Food Bank!
In P.E we have developed our skills in gymnastics and bench ball. We have worked on our balancing and co-ordination as well as our listening skills and team work.
Four Acres Care Home invited some children to visit them and play some games. The children and residents exchanged funny stories and spent time enjoying each others company.
In History we have been learning about and comparing old and new toys. We have discussed how toys have changed and looked carefully at how interests have changed. We were lucky enough to get to play with some old toys brought in. For reading roundabout everyone brought in their favourite teddy to share stories with.
