Victorian Wash Day
In class we have been learning all about the Victorians and Queen Victoria. We have been comparing life then to now. We had a go at a Victorian Wash Day, we all thought it was VERY hard work but enjoyed trying out the washboard and dolly!
Victorian Dance Workshop
Sharn from South Ribble Sports Partnership came in to work with all of year two. We learnt two Victorian themed dances. First of all we worked on a Polka, it was tricky moving around the circle with our partner but we mastered it by the end of the lesson. We then learnt a dance to the song 'Consider Yourself' from the musical Oliver. We had a great time.
Creative Arts Week - Chameleon
We enjoyed listening and then working with a woodwind quintet called Chameleon. We all learnt the names of different woodwind instruments. We then created our own group compositions.
We have been busy using the ipads, books, leaflets and magazines to find out facts about different nocturnal animals. We then used these facts to help us write a report.
Year two all really enjoyed their visit to Hothersall Lodge. During the day we did a range of activities, we did rock climbing, den building and team challenges. We all learnt lots of new skills.
We have been walking round the school grounds looking for different signs of Autumn.
Maths - Partitioning
In our maths lessons we have been looking at how you can partition numbers in a variety of different ways. Here are some examples of our work.
In our English work we have been reading and following instructions this week, ready to write our own next week. Here are some photographs of us following instructions to make a handprint witch.
Fire Safety Talk
The children had a visit from three firefighters from Bamber Bridge fire station. The firefighters talked the children through what they should do if there was a fire at home. We also acted out some scenarios and took part in a question and answer session. The children came up with some super questions for the firefighters!
New Technologies Week
During new technologies week year two had a great time developing their control and programming skills. The highlight of the week was a visit from Stephen the Lego man. The children created their own Lego house before joining together to make a Lego city using lights, roads and even swimming pools!
A Midwife Crisis
Year two participated in this years nativity 'A Midwife Crisis'. The story involved a very busy midwife who was desperate to get the Bethlehem Palace to help with the delivery of a very important king. However, her journey did not go smoothly. All of the children sang, danced and performed brilliantly. Here are some photos of us.
