Happy Easter Year 2! I hope you're having a lovely Easter weekend and that the Easter Bunny has come and delivered you some treats.
During our last week together of the spring term, we were very busy. One of the fun tasks we did was food tasting. As part of our DT project, we tasted different types of fruit to see which ones we would like to include in our fruit salad. The fruits included: bananas, satsumas, apples, grapes and a grapefruit. The grapefruit was a little bitter so only a few of us chose to include this in our fruit salad. The next day after tasting, we made the fruit salad. Exciting times! We had to learn about food hygiene and how to correctly cut a piece of food. This involved paying attention and working as a team to do a good job. Many of you chose to save your fruit salads to take home. Hopefully, they were tasty and you enjoyed eating them.
In maths, we practiced our arithmetic skills. We recapped the different strategies we have learnt for the four calculations, and we set ourselves a challenge of counting down from 100 in the quickest time possible. We worked on being maths machines and found that listening to each other and paying attention were very important. We set a record of 1:20! We will continue to work on breaking this record when we return. Let's see if we can get below one minute. I think we can. Get practising at home to sharpen your skills and help us beat our target.
In English, we carried on learning our story based on cave baby. Then we planned our own and had a go at writing too. The writing we did was wonderful. You used great word choices, strong sentences and it was a pleasure to read them. Well done team.
This week you also continued learning about the ukulele. This was great fun and you learnt a new cord. Your skills are increasing. You'll soon be professionals. Art was another one of our afternoon lessons. Drawing a scene from the Stone Age was our focus. We developed our skills to create cave drawings. It was great to find out why cave drawings are important and what tools a Stone Age artist would have. We talked about how the Stone Age people inspire us to use chalk, charcoal and other types of nature to draw and we produced some lovely artwork as a result.
Finally, we finished our recordings for the Easter Service. We enjoyed watching it in school, and we hope that you have enjoyed watching it too.
Have a lovely Easter holiday,
