'Healthy Body, Healthy Mind' Week
In English, Year 2 have been learning how to write formal and persuasive letters. They have covered the different features of a letter and how it should be structured. The focus of the letters is to ask our Headteacher – Ms Shah – if we are allowed to get 2 Guinea pigs as class pets. The children have been doing lots of learning about Guinea pigs, to ensure their letters can be as persuasive as possible.
As part of our science focus on 'Living Things and Their Habitats', we looked into life cycles. To get a visualisation of a cycle, we got some class tadpoles. We watched them grow into froglets and a few into little frogs, this was very beneficial for Year 2.
Eid Celebration Party
On Friday 28th April, Year 2 celebrated the end of Eid with a party. During our celebration, we played party games like pass the parcel and musical statues, danced and tried some traditional foods.
We all had lots of fun celebrating!
Year 2 had lots of fun creating cars for our whole school 'create a car' competition. We used different materials to make our cars and tested them out to see which travelled the furthest distance. We were DELIGHTED to win! Our winning car travelled over 5metres! We were all excited to receive our prize of hot chocolate and marshmallows... it was delicious! Well done Year 2!
