As part of our science topic, year 2 investigated the different habitats that are in our forest school area. We found a range of mini beasts along with several plants. It was a fantastic closure to our topic and the sun even shone for us!
Today year 2 did some orienteering on our yard. We have been learning about position and direction in our maths lessons. We used the language of direction during our orienteering task! It was so much fun!
The children planted some fast germinating cress seeds. Can you spot a few shoots appearing?
Our site manager, Gary, brought us some visitors he found hiding in our school. The children were very excited learning all the facts Gary had for them. Did you know some newts have speckled bellies?
This afternoon year 2 have been making fruit and salad kebabs in our design and technology lesson. We designed our kebab last week which included which skills we would need to use to prepare the food. We made sure that our hands and the surfaces were clean before we started. We grated, peeled and cut the food. The best part was eating them at the end. They were delicious!
This morning year 2 have had a fabulous time at forest school.On our walk down we looked for signs of Spring. The blossom is starting to bud on the trees and the daffodils are in full bloom. We were so lucky that the sun was shining for us too. We have climbed a tree, swung in hammocks, played in the mud kitchen and lit the campfire where we toasted marshmallows!
Today we have celebrated world book day in school. We have had a fun day dressing up as our favourite book characters, reading stories and taking part in some World book day activities. We love stories in year 2!

We had an excellent trip to Thorp for our Sports Festival. We developed our skills in throwing, catching and balancing, as well as working as a team. We had a fabulous time and cannot wait for the Summer Festival!
