First Half term in Beech class

It has been a really busy half term in year 2.

We have enjoyed reading and writing about Traction Man’s adventures. In Science, we tested different materials and decided which would be the best one to design Traction Man’s cape.

Our Toys topic has  has taught us a lot about the history of toys – We brought in some old toys that belonged to our parents and grand parents, we ordered them on a time line. Mrs. Robinson has joined in with our Music lessons and taught us some lovely music to go with our toys topic.

In computing we have been using a Lego programme to build models that move, we loved doing this. We have been carrying on with our cookery each week. We have really enjoyed going in the forest this half term.

Hartlebury Museum

We had a fantastic day at Hartlebury museum looking at and playing with the old toys.

It was a very wet and  rainy day, but that didn’t stop us enjoying ourselves! We split into two groups – one group went to look at the old toys with David, who told us all about them. The second group went to play with the old toys in the Great Hall. Then we swapped over.

After lunch, we had a look at the transport museum – we loved the old gypsy caravans and wagons. Then we looked around The Bishop’s Palace, before going back to the toy museum to play with some more toys and draw our favourite ones.

Even though the weather was miserable, we certainly weren’t – we had lots of fun and our teachers were very proud of our beautiful behaviour!

Welcome to Beech Class

What a busy start to the year we have had!
In Maths we have been experimenting with different ways to make numbers to 100 as well as looking at the place value of each digit in the number.
We received a parcel in our topic lesson – it was wrapped in Christmas paper and contained a letter. Inside the parcel was a ‘Traction Man’. We are now finding out about his adventures in the story ‘Traction Man is Here’.
We have also carried out some Science investigations – comparing Seasons and planting bulbs so that we can watch then grow. A group of us baked muffins in our first cookery lesson; we are all looking forward to having a go before Christmas.
