MINIBEAST MADNESS Topic Launch
Year Two have had a great first week, launching their new topic Minibeast Madness!
We leaned the words to “The Ugly Bug Ball” and added musical instrument to build up texture in our piece of music.
We made minibeast hats to wear in our final performance and then recorded our final performance for you to enjoy. Here it is!
We have begun to find to find out about minibeasts, habitats, life cycles and food chains. We are looking forward to our trip to Kingsbury Water Park this week, where we shall be minibeast hunting in meadows and woodlands and also looking for watery minibeasts when we pond dip!
We also welcomed some new arrivals to our class this week – Baby caterpillars!
We shall be watching them grow and change over the coming weeks, studying their life cycles.
They are teeny tiny at the moment, but not for long!
A visitor from the bird sanctuary
We had a very special visitor into school recently, and he brought along some of his feathered friends. We were very lucky to get the opportunity to hold the owl and find out more about their habits. Some of us were a little nervous holding the birds! We wanted to find out even more so we did some of our own research. We sketched the owls and wrote some poetry which we read to each other.
Easter Bonnet Parade
We all had a wonderful time making Easter bonnets and our parents came along to watch the grand parade. Happy Easter everyone!
Sharing our work.
In Hong Kong class (year two) we love to help each other improve our work. We share our work with each other and give feedback! We enjoy reading each other’s stories and sharing other work whenever we can! Well done everybody.
Our Trip To London
Hong Kong class had an amazing time in London this week when they visited the Natural History Museum and the National Gallery.
We enjoyed hunting for dinosaurs!
We absolutely loved the National Gallery, where we saw some very famous paintings.
Hong Kong Class enjoyed a fabulous Evacuee Day to celebrate the end of a brilliant topic. All the children dressed up as evacuees for the day, taking part in several different activities.
In the afternoon we held a tea party and enjoyed a good old English cup of tea, sandwiches and scones with jam and cream. But it wasn’t as simple as that! The children learned about rationing and had to choose the items they wanted for their afternoon tea, with only a small number of ration vouchers. They had to choose very carefully!
