Get your passports ready…

Year 2 expedition morning video

 

I am blown away by the fantastic learning that has happened in year 2 this morning. Our second case study for our expedition is geography and the children got a chance to try a range of foods from different countries around the world. They explored the country’s flags and learnt how to say ‘hello’.

They also did some research on the countries to record in their own passports and created a mind map of words to describe the food they tasted.

Some foods were a hit like apples and maple syrup but the olives didn’t go down too well!

Super learning today year 2, it was so lovely to see!

Around the World in Little Bites

Wow! What an adventure Y2 have enjoyed this morning … we have been zooming around the world to learn about the different countries in our new English text, How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World. We even managed to do a spot of food tasting as well. The apples with maple syrup in Canada were delectable but we weren’t so keen on the olives from Italy!

WOW!  Well done to everyone who took the time to celebrate maths by photographing maths in our community!  We have some wonderful examples that I can’t wait to display around school.
Here are a few examples:
We will share more as the week goes on!
Wednesday’s maths challenge:
What does 100 grams look like?  Can you measure out 100g into a food bag and bring it to school?  Last year we looked at what 100 looks like and it will be great to compare 100 and 100g!
Don’t forget Friday’s maths challenge is our Maths Dress up day!  We are raising money for NSPCC and our target is £500!  We are asking for a donation of £1 (minimum).
Thank you once again for supporting our maths week!  We have started well!
