Next week we will be thinking about our time in Year 2. We have had a fantastic year full of learning, new experiences and wonderful memories.

Have a think about your time in Year 2. Can you draw a picture to show one of your favourite memories from this year.

Perhaps you could write a riddle and we could guess your favourite memory?

This week we have been thinking about how we keep our bodies healthy.

We looked at diet and nutrition and designed a healthy snack. Our snacks were delicious! You could find or design a healthy recipe and bring it in to share with the class.

Image result for balanced diet

Next week we will be looking at growing and changing. Bring in a photo of yourself from when you were a baby. Then as a class we will try and guess who the baby photo belongs to.

We have also been learning about how exercise is important to keep healthy. As next week is sports day you might want to practise some skills. Can you balance? Can you pass a ball to a friend? How many start jumps can you do in 1 minute?

DT-Healthy Eating

This term in DT, 2T have been learning all about eating healthily. We have learnt about how important it is to have balanced diet and that food can be grouped into proteins, carbohydrates, fats, dairy etc.

We went on to design our own healthy snack. We thought about having some protein in our snack and mixing it with food from the other food groups.

As we prepared our snacks today we practised cutting, grating and peeling. We then got to choose from lots of healthy options what went into our healthy snacks. We finished off by taking our snacks outside and having a mini picnic.

I hope you all enjoyed eating your healthy snacks!

Whitstable

Today, 2T visited the seaside town of Whitstable in Kent. It was our memorable experience this term, as we have been comparing urban cities to the countryside and seaside.

First we had a look around the harbour. We could see some fishing boats with fishermen loading and unloading their special equipment. We saw lots of nets, equipment for catching oysters and anchors.

Next we went inside the fish market and had a look at all the different kinds of seafood that was for sale.

Then we walked along the coastal path alongside the beach. We saw lots of boats, fisherman’s huts and colourful beach houses.

Next, we walked along the path some more and stopped to have our lunch.

After lunch we explored the beach area. The tide was out so we could look and see what had been left behind when the water had gone out. We found lots of oyster shells, normal shells, seaweed and crabs amongst other things!

We hope you had a great day 2T. Let me know which bit was your favourite part of the day.

Next week in Maths we will be looking at data collection and analysis.

Can you create your own tally chart at home?

You could count the cars that go past your street and take a tally of the colours. Perhaps you could ask your friends and family their favourite chocolate bar and make a tally of that?

You could think about the minibeast walks we have been on this week. Go on a minibeast walk and create another tally. Is it similar/different to the results we collected?

You might want to choose your own categories.

Minibeasts

In our English and Science lessons we have been learning all about different types of minibeasts.

For your homework this week pick an activity from the list below, don’t forget to bring it in and show your teacher what you have done.

  1. Draw and label a picture of a minibeasts habitat.
  2. Go on a bug hunt in the park or garden and see what minibeasts you can find.
  3. Draw and label a life cycle picture of a butterfly, ladybird or beetle.

We were really impressed with all the home learning we saw last week, so are looking forward to what we might see next week!
