Settling back into school...
This week we have been looking back on the amazing topics we were taught last term. We remembered sculptures, talked about materials they can be made from and our favourites. In PSHE we focused on being healthy and safe. We talked about being healthy and safe at home and school, then discussed and wrote about the importance. In computing we are continuing to use the iPads to create animations. For DT we also looked at being healthy and created tasty fruit salads. We remembere
Our first STEM club
Today was the first STEM Club in school. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. We will be exploring interesting activities covering all of these topics over the next two terms. Today we discussed chemical reactions. We used Mod Rock and talked about how it makes the cold water warm. We then created a volcano (for a later date - watch this space) and then made our very own chemical reactions outside. STEM Team
26/4/22 - Oak Afternoon
This afternoon we've had a lot of fun in PE and PSHE. In PE this term we will be practising the skills of sending and receiving. We are practising this by playing games like catch. Today we focused on rolling as a way of sending an object, and receiving it as it rolled along the floor. This is the first step in our PE skills development and the children had lots of fun practising. We took these skills to play a game, 'Clean The Garden'. In this game our class was split in hal

The end of Spring term...
This week has been so fun! We made Rice Krispy cakes to help us write instructions. We orally rehearsed our sentences before we wrote them down. We used imperative verbs and time connectives. In Numeracy we've been exploring numbers to 5o, using equipment to support our learning. In Art we looked at religious art. Some classes created a stained glass window. Others took this idea and made their Easter card a stained glass window. In RE we looked at - What matters most at East
We have been preparing for Easter!

On Wednesday we made Easter Cards as a class and the children flexed their artistic abilities, creating a fantastic chicken card! Looks awesome guys! As a nice end to the term we have spent today making and decorating Easter baskets and having a celebration assembly all to
Fun learning in Hazel class.
We had a very busy week in Hazel. We worked hard on learning the words to poems and then adding some actions to accompany them. We later became poets and added some of own lines to poems. In Maths we are learning about time to the hour, half hour, quarter to and past and intervals of five minutes. We were very creative when designing and making Easter cards and baskets. Happy Easter to you all.
This week in Year 2 we have been reading, sharing and enjoying poetry. In Rowan we chose a poem called 'Say how you feel' and we performed it in our outdoor classroom, adding actions for each verse. We then took photographs of each other during our freeze frames. Can you guess by looking at each freeze frame which emotion we are showing? It will be either sadness, nervousness, happiness, anger or excitement.
This term in PE we are developing our creative skills. Our learning goals are: I can explore and describe different movements. I can begin to compare my movements and skills with those of others. I can select and link movements together to fit a theme. I can make up my own rules and versions of activities For the last 3 weeks we have been focusing on counter balancing. We have learned that a counter balance is a weight balancing another. We have used a partner to help us main
