Year 2 Visit to Kingsbury Water Park
Year 2 had a fantastic time on Monday at Kingsbury Water Park minibeast hunting!
The weather was kind to us and we enjoyed hunting for all sorts of invertebrates in different habitats within the park.
Have a look at our photos.

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!
Our Trip To London.
Mexico class enjoyed a fantastic trip to London this week.
We had a great time searching for dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum.
We went on a tour of London and saw some of the sights.
We viewed some of the most famous paintings in the world at the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square.
We looked at “A Roman Triumph” painting by Peter Paul Rubens. We shall be looking at this in more detail at school.
Back at school the next day, we enjoyed drawing some of the dinosaurs that we had seen, on the playground outside.
Mexico 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!
