School Photographer - Tuesday 9th October 2018
The children had such a fun and exciting time today when two very talented scientists from
'Inspiring Science' came to teach the children the importance of hygiene and hand washing. The children were amazed to find out that a common sneeze can travel 7 metres, highlighting the way germs are spread so easily. The children made their very own 'snot' (ewww) and their very own germs to take home to show their families and discuss what they had learned in such a fun way.
This was a wonderful way to get the message of hygiene and how to stay healthy across to the children.
Luke was our merit winner today so he had double celebrations!
The children in Year 2 had a fantastic afternoon celebrating the Jewish Sabbath meal 'Shabbat'
According to the Torah, Shabbat commemorates the day that God rested from creating the world; the word Shabbat literally means “he rested.” Exodus 34:21 states: “Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest.” Shabbat is considered a day of peace and holiness. The children shared kosher food, prayer and holy songs to celebrate their learning and get a true understanding of this wonderful Jewish tradition.
We all loved having our special objects in school this week. The children really enjoyed choosing a book from the reading area and reading it to their special objects. Keep up the good work year 2!
We have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s this week and used the resources around us to help us count. Lots of practical activities this week in year 2 are helping us to build our skills!
We used hundred squares in class to count forwards and backwards in tens from any number. Eg. 16, 26, 36 etc.
We played splat, splatting a number and counting forwards and backwards in tens as quick as we could!
Throughout this week, we have been looking at counting in tens and recognising the importance of place value when we count forwards and backwards in tens. We used multilink cubes to make sticks of ten and then represented a number using different maths resources. Keep up lots of practice at home in counting forwards and backwards in tens!
