In our topic we have been learning about the effects of global warming on polar bears. In PSHE today we explored where our food comes from. We were amazed to find how far some of our food travels around the world! We discussed how this contributes to global warming and ways in which we could avoid this.
In our Computing lesson this afternoon we practiced using 2Count on Purple Mash to make our own pictographs. We then had to use our Maths vocabulary to write facts about the graphs we made. It was great fun!
Today we finished our learning about poetry by writing our own! We wrote in the style of the classic poet Edward Lear. We took his Alphabet Poem and wrote our own. It was great fun making up nonsense rhyming words!
For the last few weeks we have been making our own books in English. We have worked extremely hard writing, editing, publishing and illustrating! Today we shared our books with year one – they thought they were fabulous.
Today in Art we practiced a learning objective we have focused on before; drawing with texture and shading. Miss Williams taught us how to draw a polar bear focusing on breaking down the shapes. We then tried our own and added detail using lines and dots to add texture. Look at our photos to see how we got on.
Today is the beginning of Safer Internet Week. In year 2 we are focusing on digital footprints. We learnt that every time you go online you leave a footprint wherever you have been. This footprint can’t be changed or erased so you must always be very careful about what you tell people online.
We practiced being online detectives. We had some clues containing screenshots of screens Penelope uses and had to find out as many facts about her as we could. We learnt a lot more than we thought we would! Later in the week we are going to be thinking about our own digital footprints.
This week in our science lessons we have been experimenting and investigating. Today we planned and carried out an experiment to find out what makes ice melt more quickly. We shared our ideas and in groups put ice cubes in 3 different places in the classroom.
We then observed them every 10 minutes to see how they had changed.
