Visits since 5th November:
Today the farm came to Oxford Grove for our Autumn 1 smiley reward! We saw alpacas, sheep, chickens, goats and ducks! Farmer David told us all about the animals at the farm and we got to stroke and feed them! We had lots of fun! Thank you Miss Harvey, we can’t wait for the next smiley reward!
In Science we have been learning all about materials.
Some of the materials we have been investigating are:
Glass, fabric, metal, wood, wool & plastic.
All materials have different properties and uses and we have been thinking about which materials would be good for different things.
Glass is transparent and smooth- it would be good for a window.
Wool is soft and warm- it would good for a jumper.
Can you think of any other material properties and uses?
Today was our class assembly all about reading! We love to read in year 2 and we shared all the different ways you can enjoy reading in school, at home and when you are out and about. We talked about our class author ‘Anthony Browne’ and our class poet ‘Dr Seuss’. Parents came along to watch and they were very proud of us!
Well done 2B!! Miss Bimson is very proud!! 🙂
This morning we took part in a Diwali Workshop. We listened to a story and made it come to life with movement and music! We had lots of fun!
Over the last half term we have been learning different movements, balances and jumps in gymnastics! We have been using the mats and benches to then put all of these together. In gymnastics we need to remember to bend our knees to take off and land from our jumps. We have been working very hard!
This week in our Geography lesson we have been learning all about the UK. We used play dough to make our own UK maps and locate the countries, as well as where we live in Bolton!
Can you remember any other places in England 2B? Can you remember the capital city of England?
Today is poetry day and we have been learning one of our class poems ‘One Fish Two Fish’ by Dr Seuss! We have been thinking of actions to help us remember the lines. We will be performing our poem to Year 1 tomorrow in the hall, we are very excited!
In our classroom we have a reading area where we can explore different books. We have a selection on fiction, non-fiction and poetry books! This week we have been enjoying spending time reading with our friends on the comfy cushions!
This week in maths we have been learning how to add in different ways. We have used practical objects and number lines too! We have even moved onto adding up to 3 tens and ones drawing our own number lines! We have been working very hard!
