Class 2 - Mrs. Hul

This term our topic has been chosen by the children.... SPORTS!
We have been getting into the spirit of the Women's World Cup by making our own football tables. The Year 3 England team are playing Argentina and the Year 2 England team are playing Japan!

The Year 2's have had such a fun morning with Year 5's today, we watched the official trailer for the Women's World Cup by Ms. Banks. We joined in with learning the chorus and then worked together on our own rap verses!

We then performed these! 

'This is ten percent luck

Twenty percent skill

Fifteen percent concentrated power of will

Five percent pleasure

Fifty percent pain

And a hundred percent reason to remember the name'

We had our very own 'Unbirthday' tea party like the Mad Hatter on the last day of term. We had to wear a hat and we all enjoyed tea and cakes, especially the jam tarts!

As part of our topic 'Under the Sea' we have investigated rocks and how they are formed. We made our very own rock buffet to show the processes then we got to sample them!

We have spent the last two weeks planning and writing a diary entry for Alice when she met the Cheshire Cat.

Today we have been finding out about St George and celebrating St George's Day. 

We have discovered what it means to be a patron saint and we have had a debate about whether England should celebrate St George's Day with a bank holiday. 

Here are some of the points that were made:

 

'Since he saved us we should celebrate!'

'Not everyone knows about St George!'

'The celebrations could include a feast on the day or a party and you could wear red and white, like the flag.'

'George saved us and the villagers!'

 

'He only did one thing for us though!'

'I don't think we should have a bank holiday and that you should go to school and learn about it!'

 

What do you think?

We used this picture of the dragon to create our own poems about the dragon St George defeated! 
Picture 1

He has a big wing

But don't forget his spiky chin.

He has an eye that is blazing

But you have to run because he might like chasing.

Wings as big as an elephant ear

He might have ate a deer!

 

Wings as big as an elephant's ears

Saint George will soon get some cheers!

As scaly as a fish

The sheep were his dish.

The scaly skin

Matches his forked chin!

 

The dragon's eyes are glazy

When I look into them they are blazy.

Golden like the sun

The princess is going to have fun.

The dragon is fierce

But he is going to get a pierce! 

This term our topic is 'Around the Globe'.

 

We have been looking at London over the last two weeks. We have looked at the tourist attractions available and we have designed and made our own.

These had to be fun and unique to attract tourists.

What do you think? 

We have also been in the Tardis and travelled back to the Industrial Revolution where we met Richard Trevithick and learned about the first steam locomotive.

This week we learnt about Italy and we had a pizza 'Bake off'. We designed and made pizzas based on a celebration. They were very tasty!

We discovered lots of facts about 'The Great Wall of China', including that it was built in sections. We had a go at building sections in small groups and then put it together in the same way except ours was built using.... SUGAR CUBES!
Our topic this term is 'Weather' 

Over the last two weeks we have looked at the different components of weather. One of these is the wind:

This week we followed our designs to make our very own weather vanes and we have started using them to collect data on the direction of the wind.
