Emerald Class (Year 2)

Welcome to Emerald Class! The children have settled really quickly into a new school year and have showed fantastic learning behaviours. We got stuck into our learning straight away, thinking about our feelings at the start of a new school year. The Colour Monster had a mixture of feelings and so did we! Look at our colour monsters that we created to show how we were feeling!


 Forest School Fun 

The children have loved Forest School this term. They have enjoyed playing on the rope swing, building dens and creating their own tie dye cloths. The children have been learning to follow the Forest School rules and have developed their independence and problem solving skills. 



In computing we have been learning how to code. We created our own snail races and learnt how to use random numbers.

How did Florence Nightingale and Edith Cavell help to improve hospitals?

In History this half term, we are going to be learning about two very important women who changed healthcare for the better. We have learnt about the different ways we can find out about the past. We now know the significance of Florence Nightingale and Edith Cavell and can explain why they are still remembered today.



 Christmas Fun!

 We have absolutely loved getting ready for Christmas. We have been to watch Peter Pan at Ormiston Rivers, made reindeer cards, eaten a yummy Christmas dinner and even had a visit from Father Christmas! 

 DT: Creating Ferris Wheels

In DT we have been designing, making and evaluating Ferris wheels. We now know that different materials have different properties and are therefore suitable for different uses. So far we have created a strong frame for our wheels and have begun to create a wheel using an axle to move. 



Congratulations to India-Rose, Freya and Georgie for achieving theory level 1 in piano. 



 RE: How do Christians belong to their faith family? 

In RE we have been learning about how Christians belong to their faith family. In our lessons, we looked at different religious symbols and artefacts.
