I would just like to say thank you very much to you all for making me so welcome in class 2. The children have been wonderful and I will really miss them. It seemed really strange to say goodbye to the children today knowing that I won't see many of them again.
I hope you and your families stay safe and I would like to wish all the best to the children over the coming years - they are a credit to you all.
Please see below work for Home Learning as from Monday 23rd March 2020.
Mrs R Wilson
Welcome to Class 2
I hope you all had a relaxing break and have done some fun things with family and friends.
Last half term we had a great time and the children quickly made me feel welcome. The children amazed me at how many facts they could tell me about China after our learning was completed. This half term our topic is ‘How Great is the Sea?’, this will culminate in a class trip to ‘The Deep’ at Hull – which I am sure will be a fantastic day out to celebrate all the learning achieved.
Please see more information below about our learning this half term.
PE will be on Mondays and Wednesdays
Homework will be handed out on Wednesdays and should be returned the following Monday. Reading Diaries must be in school each day.
Class 2's MUGA day is Monday.
'How can we return the penguin to its home?'
At the start of the day we read the story 'Lost and Found' so we could base our day around finding out about the continent of Antarctica and animal habitats.
We first realised that we needed to have very warm clothing to go to Antarctica so we devised a fair test to find which material would be the best insulator. We discovered that cotton wool was the best but then realised that this was not waterproof so we would then wrap ourselves in clingfilm to stay dry.
We then looked at how penguins adapt to their climate. We found out how they keep warm, how they move on different surfaces and how they catch their prey. We liked how penguins tend to work as a team.
In the afternoon we made penguin masks and designed a boat that would get us to Antarctica quickly. We had great fun testing the propellers in the water trough.
