21.10.21- Forest School and Maths
Today we went to the Pumpkin Patch Shop as part of our Stewardship of God’s creation week. We used our maths skills to add up how much the vegetables were and we weighed them on the weighing scales. We had so much fun at the shop outdoors appreciating nature and God’s Creation! 🎃🥕🌽
19.10.21- Science and RE
As part of our Catholic Social Teaching- Stewardship of God’s creation, we sowed seeds. Growing our own food helps reduce pollution as it then does not need to be transported. We took action this afternoon as Stewards of God’s earth. We then wrote psalms about how thankful we are for God’s creation and how we can be stewards of the earth.
Today we did some role play based on making the wrong and right choices on God’s planet. We were given three different situations: dropping litter on the floor, not looking after God’s animals and breaking the branches off trees. We acted out the wrong thing and changed our actions by acting out the right thing to do. We loved watching each other’s performances.
As part of our Stewardship of God’s creation week we did some yoga to natural sounds of the earth. This allowed us to reflect and appreciate the world God has made for us.

Today in EBL we wrote a summary of what we learned last week. We remembered lots of information about fire. We really enjoyed doing our first long write in EBL. 📝
Today we practised our dribbling skills by dribbling a football between tightly spaced cones. We learned that we had to control the ball so that it didn’t go everywhere and we were very good at this!
Today we had our first EBL lesson. We are so excited about our fire topic! We all had so much information to share from our research homework and we can’t wait to learn more. Today we learned about the fire triangle and then we went outside and built a campfire with the help of Mrs Morris. We talked about the wood that we needed for the fuel, the heat and the oxygen. If one of these parts is missing we can’t have a fire. Mrs Morris showed us how to put out a campfire safely. We had great fun in EBL today 🔥
In class today we launched Numbots! We absolutely loved doing our maths work on the iPads and we learned lots too! We were able to upgrade our robots as we went through the levels and collected lots of stars!
As it was Mary’s birthday today we did some map work exploring where she lived and the journey she went on to give birth to Jesus. As part of Family and community week, we used a world map to find out where we lived and where other family members come from. We found it really interesting hearing about the different cultures within our class. 🌍
Today we had our first PE lesson of the year. We learned about the importance of warming up and why we warm up. We also did some throwing and catching and finished with a fun game of duck duck goose. We have some very fast runners in year two! We had great fun in the sun and we are looking forward to next week. ☀️🏃🏼🏃🏻♀️
