It's '6 Ways to be Smart' time....
Phase 2's '6 Ways to be Smart' work from the Spring term has looked amazing displayed on our corridor. Just a reminder that this Summer's tasks are due in on the week commencing 24th June. To give everyone a chance to contribute, we will be looking at the homeworks later on during the week.
Our indoor PE session will focus on Athletics skills this term. We began with the standing jump, using a 2-feet launch and landing, and using our arms and body to give momentum. Watch them fly...!
To launch our new Summer topic of 'Tails and Tales', Year 2 made Gruffalo puppets to help them retell the story as a group.
In the Summer Term, Year 2 will be developing skills to support them playing rounders! We began in the sunshine this week, learning about underarm throws and catching.
During this half term, Year 2 have learned to play Boccia during PE. This is a form of bowls specially designed to be accessible by all. It is a game of hand-eye coordination and strategy, and a lot of fun!
We have been sharing our 6WTBS homework this week (Thank you for your patience!). We have loved seeing the poems, the vehicle designs, and a full serving of crepes! Thank you to everyone who has guided, assisted, filmed, cleaned up and helped in any way to make the homework task such a success.
Forgiveness on our RE days
On our RE days, we focused on stories from the bible that featured forgiveness. We learned the story of 'The Prodigal Son' and thought about forgiveness in our own lives and our classroom. Here are some examples that the children thought that they might need to admit to...all for fun though!
Talking about saving with Leek United
On Monday, Carol and Di from Leek United Building Society visited to talk about saving. They were joined by their mascot, Humphrey the Camel, who liked to spend his money on ice cream rather than saving it. The children listened to Humphrey's story, and played a game matching coins to the price of items. The children took home a piggy bank to help them save their money.
