This week in circle time we discussed what it meant to have courage. We talked about the importance of having courage in everyday situations as well as different or new situations. In check-out today we shared some times when we had shown courage:
This week in English Year 2 have been learning the story of Scaredy Squirrel which is a tale of fear. We talked about other stories we thought were tales of fear and other characters who are usually scared or scary.
We have learnt the beginning and build up so far and are making our own story maps to help us learn.
In Science, Year 2 were asked to identify and name a variety of plants. They first had to give Mrs Knipe as much information as they already knew about plants and trees. Once they shared their knowledge they then learnt about evergreen and deciduous trees ( I wonder if you know what they are?) After that they went outside to try and spot the different types of plants, flowers and trees that are in and around our school. They found Clover, Daises, Ivy plus Sycamore and Oak trees along with other varieties.
This afternoon we had a wonderful party to celebrate all our fantastic learning this term. We played lots of party games and had some delicious food! Lots of children won prizes but the most enjoyable part was the lovely supportive atmosphere.
