RE – Agreements and Promises

In our RE lessons this term we have been learning about Judaism and the agreements and promises that Jewish people make to themselves and those around them. We have also been thinking of good ways to help us remember our agreements and promises that we have made – especially the promises we have made at school!

We came up with some ideas as a class about promises we can make. We even remembered to link our promises to our Learning to Learn behaviours when we promised to listen like bats.

Multi-Skills Festival

Yesterday, Year 2 were finally able to go on their first trip out of school and we had a great afternoon at Billesley Tennis Centre taking part in a Multi-skills sports event.

We worked in teams and competed in lots of different sporting activities! We got to use tennis, basketball and rugby equipment and we worked on our speed, balance and throwing and catching skills.

Which was your favourite activity?

Wellbeing Day

Our first day of the Summer term started with lots of fun activities that focused on our well being and also taught us some team building exercises!

We had lots of fun playing games together in the classroom and also thinking about how we can be the great learners and a good friend to others both in the classroom and in the playground.

Carrot Award afternoon

2FD had a lovely afternoon yesterday to celebrate winning the carrot competition. We played lots of party games, danced till we dropped (we are very competitive musical bumps players!) and we even had time to decorate some Easter cards.

We hope you all have a lovely Easter Break and have a much needed rest!

Proud Moment

What a wonderful message for both Mrs Desborough and I to see when we finished our planning session on Tuesday afternoon. We know how much the children in 2FD enjoy the lessons during our PPA time and we are so proud of their effort and behaviour when working with other teachers.

You are all super stars….and excellent at Mandarin it seems!! Well done 2FD!

What does it weigh?

We have now started a new unit of work in our Maths lessons on weight!

This week we used the balance scales and counters and cubes to compare the weights of different items in the classroom. We really enjoyed our practical lesson and it was a great chance for some teamwork. Several children received one of our new learning behaviour stickers for their hard work in this fun lesson!

Science Week

What a wonderful Science Week we have had!

In our Science lessons this week we have been learning all about Growth and we have planned and carried out our very own experiment to investigate the impact of sunlight of the growth of cress.

Lots of children in 2FD have also been Super Scientists at home and have created wonderful investigations of their own for the Science Competiton. Check out our amazing entries…
