Science - Healthy Living
As part of our topic on Survival, Year 2 have been finding out how to stay fit and healthy. We have learnt that you should be active for 1 hour every day! You could do lots of types of exercise like cycling and swimming. We completed a round robin of exercise and thought about how our bodies changed from the start of the session to the end. Do you do enough exercise?
DT - Pizza making!
This week, Year 2 have been making Pizza characters for a new Traction Man story. First we designed our character, then we worked in groups to make the dough. After it had risen, we learned how to use a knife safely to prepare our toppings. We then added them to our pizza base before cooking them in the oven. It was great fun!
Maths - Place Value
This term we have been thinking about the place value in number. We have learned how to use dienes to show how many tens and units are in a number, and we used our understanding to work out which number was greater than, or less than another. We have to remember that the crocodile always eats the BIGGEST number!
For our first WOW day this term we spent the day learning survival skills in the woods. We learned how to clean dirty water, we went on a deadly 60 hunt and we even ate bugs like worms in mud! Check out some photos from our awesome day!
