We had a wonderful June. It was such a lovely end to the school year. Ms Darcy is super proud of all the hard work which 2nd class have demonstrated this year. Best of luck in 3rd class!!
Rice Krispie Buns
We practised our procedural writing in such a fun way. We made delicious rice krispie buns.
Keeping active is not only good for the body but also for the mind. We did lots of activities in June including a sponsored walk, litter picking, using the active walkway, dance with Zoe and many other activities during our sports day.
Ms Darcy was really impressed by the persuasive language which 2nd class used when discussing many topics in class. One of the discussions which we had was the benefits and drawbacks of homework.
We learnt all about the incredible life of Nelson Mandela who became the first black president of South Africa. He spent 27 years in prison for protesting against apartheid. We thoroughly enjoyed reading his autobiography.
We had such a pleasant surprise when we found out that we were going to have the opportunity to meet and pet the alpacas.
We made a May alter as May is the month of Mary.
Materials and their properties
We went on a scavenger hunt around the school and looked at different materials and investigated their properties. A window is made of glass. Glass is transparent, smooth, hard, breakable and waterproof.
We had an amazing active week which included walks, relays, throwing, fun and run, dance and circuits.
We really enjoyed learning about data in Maths. We went outside to ask our classmates questions so that we could complete our block charts and pictograms.
We weaved flowers through our wool loom. They are all so unique and such special gifts for our loved ones.
We had such a fantastic time learning about Italy.
Leonardo Da Vinci, who was born in Italy, painted the Mona Lisa. We followed a step-by-step video to help us draw the Mona Lisa.
Romulus and Remus
We read the legend about how Rome was founded. After that, we went outside to perform the story.
Zoom call with Patty
Patty told us interesting facts about Italy. She told us that Ciao means both hello and goodbye in Italian. We were so interested to find out what our names were in Italian, Jack is Giacomo in Italian.
Ms Darcy was incredibly proud of 2nd class’ projects on Italy. We learnt so much from each other.
