Beautiful Handwriting in 2B!

This week in year 2 we have all been trying really hard with our joined up handwriting! We have been working on an explanation text and then editing and improving for our final draft. We have been making sure our writing is neat and joined up so we can earn a pen! Lots of children have earned their pen already! I wonder who will be next?!

At Oxford Grove we all try really hard to get along and be nice with our friends. We have been thinking about how we can be kind to each other and how to help friends in need.

In class we have a new ‘good friend’ award which is given out each day to someone who has been a good friend. The good friend of the day gets to have a special chair cover for the whole day! If you get the good friend award lots of times you can get a special kindness coin from Miss Harvey.

I wonder who will win the good friend of the day next!

Poet- Bernard Young

Today we had a very special visit from Bernard Young who is a children’s poet. We had an assembly in the morning where we listened to some of his poems and got to join in even with the guitar! After the assembly we went back to class and had a poem workshop where we created our own poem all about food and drink! It goes like this…

Food, food we like food

We eat strawberries, we eat grapes.
We eat blueberries, we eat pears.
We also eat bananas and oranges too.
We love mangos, how about you?

 Food, food we like food

We eat pizza, we eat fish.
We eat burger, we eat chips.
Sausage casserole is great for tea.
Why don’t you just sing with me?

Food, food we like food

 We eat cotton candy and carrot cake.
We eat haribo and jelly on a plate.
We eat lollipops and ice cream.
Popcorn and chocolate are in my dream.

Drinks, drinks we like drinks

Tea and coffee, water and milk.
Hot chocolate and orange juice.
Coca-cola and lemonade.
Tango, vimto and Lucozade.

 Drinks, drinks we like drinks.

Image result for science materials

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?
