Second class have been busy learning about the origin and customs of Halloween. We also learned how to keep safe at Halloween around fireworks and bonfires. For art, we constructed super spooky castles and Halloween characters to inhabit them. We played some Halloween games like bobbing for apples, telling the future and we made some chocolate apples. Happy Halloween everyone from second class!!
Every Wednesday Mr. O'Bric comes into 2nd class and we do Maths for Fun. We split into four groups and complete practical and fun tasks created around the topic we are learning . This week we were learning about 2-D shape. We played a shape board game, completed shape activities on the laptops from topmarks.co.uk, identified 2d shapes in the school environment in a shape hunt and everyone created own shape pictures. Finally for art, we created some scary 2-D shape monsters. Lots of learning happening through fun!
2nd class were busy discovering all about minibeasts. We learned about some different types of minibeasts and then we went on a minibeast hunt. We found lots of minibeasts living in our school grounds especially spiders...Mrs. Corrigans favourite...NOT!! Pearl shared a wonderful minibeast exhibition with the class and we sketched a minibeast each for our art lesson. Finally we wrote a report about a minibeast. We hope to build a minibeast hotel in the next few days... watch this space!
