In our PE lessons this term we have been exploring Dance. We have practised moving our bodies in different ways and making different shapes. We have been trying to learn the order we do each movement in and practise it to music.
Our dance tells the harvest story of growing grain. See if you can work out what each part is.
Today in Computing we discussed our new class charter for using the internet. We shared ideas about each rule and then signed to say we will follow them.
We then used 2Go on Purple Mash to practise giving instructions. The challenges started easy and then got harder! We had to persevere a lot with some of them to get them correct but we really enjoyed the challenge.
Today, during PSHE, Year 2 were discussing how to save energy around the school. The children watched a PowerPoint which explained how we need electricity for heat, lights and cooking but how we need to use it carefully to help save the planet.
In Music this week we started to learn how to play the glockenspiel. We learnt about the notes first and then listened to a song we have been singing. We learnt the pattern of notes we needed to play and then practised. It was tricky to play in time to the music! We are going to keep playing to get even better!
This week we are learning about instructions in our English lessons. We had two sets of instructions to use to make ourselves a toucan mask. We had to read and compare them and then decide which set to follow. We decided that one set was much clearer than the other and that made them easier to follow. We enjoyed following the instructions to make our masks and were able to start thinking about what instructions need.
In Art this week we have been learning how to draw and paint fruit. We have taken inspiration from Paul Cezanne and Guiseppe Arcimboldo to make our own Art. Look out for our work on display because it is fantastic!
