Numbots

Year 2, I have something amazing to tell you! We have got a new maths resource you can try out!

Numbots is a bit like Times Table Rockstars, but it helps you to learn number bonds (like 3+4=7 or 8+2=10). It’s very fast though, and it won’t move you up to the next level until you are fast enough!

You can log in with your Times Table Rockstars login.

Are you up for the challenge?! Click the picture to try it out!

New Pets!

Hello Year 2. I hope you are all ok and you are keeping yourselves busy with all the fun tasks I have set for you.
On Thursday we had a special delivery of…..CATERPILLARS! I know we can’t be in school to watch them grow and change, so I will post updates every week whilst they are at my house. Let’s watch the miracle of metamorphosis with our Jiggly Family.
Here is the latest picture of what they look like.

How have they changed? How many cm long do you think they are now?

Keep checking in on the blog. Stay safe, love Miss Harrison ☺️

Drumming

Today we have been so lucky as we have been drumming all day with Mr Bamford. We learned how to keep a beat whilst Mr Bamford played the rhythm. The drums we used were from Africa and they are called djembe drums. After we had a turn on the drums we did some dancing and movement with Miss Vicky. We had to listen to the rhythm Mr Bamford was playing and move our bodies to match. It was quite tricky!

We then created a performance for our parents to watch at the end of the day. We have had such fun and we can’t get the rhythms and beats out of our heads now. Thank you Mr Bamford and Miss Vicky!

WHERE ARE WE GOING TO GO TODAY?

A F R I C A!

Fun Food Chef

This week, as part of our science learning, we have had a visit from the Fun Food Chef. We had a look at the different food groups and spoke about how much we should eat of eat.

We then worked in groups to create a variety of healthy meals. First we made dough for the healthy, vegetarian pizzas. Next we sliced fruit for our banana and strawberry smoothie. Then we put fruit and granola in our yogurt to make them healthy and delicious. The yogurt was sour at first so we added some honey to make it sweet.

We have all had such a great day making all these different meals. AND to think it couldn’t get any better….WE GOT TO EAT THEM ASWELL! Lots of us tried new foods from each food group and found out we liked them! Thank you Chef 🙂

PE

As part of our PE lessons this week we were recapping all the important ways to stay healthy.

Whilst doing PE with Miss Makin, she has told us lots of facts about our bodies. We learn a different muscle every week and we look at exercises that exercise that muscle. We enjoy learning new things about our wonderful bodies so we decided to share our learning with other children. We created posters to share with lots of fun, cool facts about our bodies and exercise.

Computing

This term in computing we have been practising our typing skills. We have been going up to the computing suite once a week and using Microsoft Word. We have been typing up all the facts we have learnt about the Royal Family. We have learned shortcuts for B I U, we have learned how to change the size, colour and font. Also we have learned how to insert a picture and a border!

To end the topic we created our very own fact files about an important person in the Royal Family. Here are some great examples!

Super maths!

This week in maths we have been focusing on position and direction. We have been pretending to be pirates and following directions to work our way around the treasure map. We have also been writing our own directions to direct our friends around our shape map. We looked at shape last week so this helped us to remember the names of 2D shapes.

Inclusion at Oxford Grove

At our school we include everyone in everything we do! The children in our class come from lots of different countries but we make everyone feel happy and welcome.

Can you think of some ways we make people in our class feel welcome?
