We wrote questions that we wanted to ask the local people to find out what they liked about Bishops Lydeard. We were very confident at asking our questions when we went into the village.
To link our Topic to our Outdoor Education, we collected sticks and made stick houses using wool to bind them. It was quite tricky but we’ve all learnt a new skill!
In RE, we have been looking at Gospels and ‘Good News’ This week we focused on Forgiveness and its importance. We acted out different scenarios where we forgive people and how a lot of the time, we must remember the phrase ‘Accidents Happen’
Hunting For Gold!
We had so much fun going outside in the sunshine this week. We had received a letter from a cat, a snake called Bramble and a Heron who had lost their gold so we had to go out to look for it. We think we have collected it all up for them.
Science-Testing Our Senses
We had so much fun smelling and tasting different flavours and trying to guess what they were. We also played games to test our sight, hearing and ability to touch and feel but not look.
Outstanding Outdoor Education
Today, we took part in our first Outdoor Education lesson of 2019. We discussed the rules of Outdoor Education and completed a quick activity of making a Stick Human to link in Topic of labeling Body Parts.
We have been having so much fun predicting, observing and investigating in our Science lessons this term.
Our Prince/Princess Day
We all enjoyed getting dressed up to come to school dressed as a prince or princess. We made and tasted pea soup and we learnt the story of the Princess and The Pea.
Music and Art Week
This week has been a busy one! We have had our first Music and Art Week of the year and have been very creative in Rabbit Class. We created Firework Art, Diwali Art, took part in a Drumming Workshop, did an African Dance, paraded in the School Carnival and finished the week creating Poppies on the iPads as part of our Armistice Day work.
Rabbit’s Reading Raffle!
Today, we had our first reading raffle. Each week, Mrs Foster-Burnell checks our reading records and if we have read the expected 5 times, we get a raffle ticket. At the end of the term, a raffle is then drawn with lots of prizes to be had. Well done to all the lucky winners this term!
Last week, we won the attendance cup with the highest attendance. We were rewarded with some extra time on the Trim Trail. This is us enjoying the sunshine and our reward today.
Poppies and Parents!
As a school we are lucky enough to be involved in creating a display at Wells Cathedral for Armistice Day. On Thursday we invited parents in to make individual poppies for the display using cupcake cases and different media to decorate them. It was a real success in Rabbit Class; in fact, it was so busy we had to find 20 extra chairs to make sure we could seat everyone!
Place Value in Nature
The unit we are currently working on in Maths is Place Value. We are using lots of different resources to help us know what each digit is worth. We used our Outdoor Learning lesson to take Maths outside and use nature as our resource to represent two digit numbers. Can you read the numbers we have made?
We hope you’ve had a fantastic summer and are ready for lots of learning in Year 2. We will be using this page to showcase our learning and give you all an insight in to what goes on in Rabbit Class.
