Scootering

For 2Feet spent the day in school working with Years 1 and 2 on Scooter Safety.  The children received 45 minutes of training – 20 minutes in the playground and 25 minutes on the pavements around the school.  The training included a safety check of equipment, scooter control games, hazards they may encounter while out scootering and safe places to cross the road with a scooter.  All children who took part enjoyed their session and came back full of enthusiasm and knowledge of scooter safety.

Gardening

Year 2 have starting gardening in their outdoor area.  First we had to take out the weeds that had grown over the winter and add more soil to the pots.  We planted tomato, sunflower and pea seeds inside as it was still too cold for them outside.   They will soon be ready to transplant outdoors.  We are looking forward to seeing the results of our work in the near future.

Wonderful Weaving

Year 2 are weaving this term.  The children began by using a paper frame and weaving a selection of paper through it.  They have now moved onto making their own frames and weaving with wool.  We will soon be weaving people and weaving on different shapes.

The effects of exercise …

As part of our Science unit, Animals Including Humans, Year 2 investigated the effects of exercise on their bodies.  After a period of rest, children observed the state of their heart, breathing and skin.  Then they exercised and observed the changes in their bodies.

Here me roar…

Year 2 visited the Natural History Museum as part of their Science topic, Living Things and their Habitats.  They experienced an earthquake simulation that shook them up and gave them a sense of natural disasters.  The mammal room provided a sense of size as the children viewed a blue whale, a giraffe and an elephant amongst other life sized animals.  The children then turned into explorers in the wildlife garden as they put on  safari hats and binoculars and went in search of minibeasts and plants.  It was then a quick trip to the past to see some of the many dinosaur skeletons on display throughout the museum.    A highlight of the trip for most of the children was seeing the moving, roaring model of the T-Rex.  At the end of a busy day, the children were full of enthusiasm for the  new things they had learnt and had found some new interests.  Thank you to our parent helpers.
