Year 2 - France
Welcome to France class. We are in Year 2 and our teacher is Mr Bamford. Mrs Peel and Mrs Rix are our Teaching Assistants.
We certainly hope so… it gives us the opportunity to take our learning outside of the classroom, like yesterday when we worked together to form an extra-large analogue clock on the field! This helped us to collaboratively revise our time telling to half past, quarter past/to, while interactively following the story of Tiddler.
We’ve also been learning about to how to stay healthy by doing lots of exercise, eating well, sleeping well and staying safe with medicines. The children have been creating information videos advising people how they can stay healthy which we will share when they’ve finished filming and editing them on the Ipads!
In forest schools this week we have been using team work and co-operation. We had to lead our partner around the wildlife garden safely while they were wearing a blindfold
We also enjoyed looking in the pond. The tadpoles have now changed in to frogs. There are lots of them!
In Year 2, we have been getting ‘hands’ on with some learning about time (the children are now very good at spotting when lunch time is coming up!) Last week we had a really nice time reading stories and making our own analogue clocks out of paper plates to take home and practise with. Thanks to all the Mums, Dads, Grandparents, younger brothers and sisters for coming in to help us make our clocks over a tea, coffee and biscuits, and special thanks to parents who helped with the tidying up afterwards! I think the children all had a good time and got some great learning out of it!
