Sizewell beach trip

Yesterday, we had a fantastic trip to Sizewell Beach. When we arrived, we were met by our leaders who were running our trip. In the morning, we had two activities to do. One activity was a scavenger hunt. We had to find lots of things which made nature beautiful on the beach. When we had collected them, we looked at them carefully through magnifying glasses. We loved exploring and asking questions about what we could see! After that, we then did a litter pick. We all were given a grabber and we went around the beach collecting items that shouldn’t be there as they may cause harm to the wildlife. It then poured it down! Whilst we were waiting for the rain to stop, we sat in some survival shelters. After lunch, we then took part in some craft activities. These were: Making a fish, creating a beach scene, sketching of the beautiful objects we had found, colouring and some¬† word searches. We had a fun filled day!¬†

Science Week

Science week was great in Year 2! We worked with SuperNova Science to complete tests to see if different liquids were acid or alkaline. We loved wearing the lab coats and goggles!

Pirates!

This morning Pirate Peg left our treasure chest for us to look after. Unfortunately, the treasure was stolen and we had to go on an adventure to the Island of Doom to find it. We had great fun doing pirate training for our adventure!

We love to write!

Today in Literacy, we did a shared piece of writing. This week, we are writing a letter to Greenpeace to tell them about the plastics in the ocean! We generated our ideas together as a class that we wanted to include to make sure they would listen. In pairs, the children came up with sentences based on a criteria on what they needed to include.Miss Clark really struggles with writing so she has to magpie the children’s brilliant ideas to create her own. The children thought it would be a great idea to share our writing with you!

I strongly believe that we should stop putting sharp, poisonous and nasty plastic into the trashed ocean because sea creatures are dying quickly which could make them extinct. My first reason is that people shouldn’t throw the powerful plastic into the glittery ocean as animals find it difficult to swallow or digest it. How would you like it if you had to eat strong and harmful plastic all the time? My second reason is that plastic bags look like jellyfish and some types of fish eat them. Animal’s brains are not very clever and they cannot tell the difference between scrumptious food and enormous plastic when they are hunting. In 100 years time, the funky creatures will have died and it’s your responsibility to stop it now!

Music!

This week, we got to have a very special music lesson. We spent some time with some trainee teachers and explored an aspect of music. Using different sounds, we became fish. We had to tap our instrument and have a conversation with each other. We then had to decide whether our fish voice had a high pitch or a low pitch. We had lots of fun exploring the different pitches on the instruments

1,2,3 Throw!

In PE, we have been practicing our throwing skills. To be able to throw accurately, we must be able to aim. We have been exploring different ways of aiming. To help us aim we have too look at the target, position our body correctly and then throw when we are ready. We have got very good at hitting our targets!

The Easter Experience!

Last week, we went to the church to explore the Easter Story. Reverend Margaret started our visit reading the beginning of the story. We then did five different activities which helped us explore and understand what happened. The activities were: writing our hopes and dreams on pebbles, drawing a cross on our hand using water, eating bread and grapes, thinking about a time alone and looking at words that Jesus might have felt during the time of crucifixion. We had an enjoyable time.

Science Week!

We became scientists! During Science Week, we had some real scientists come and visit. We explored what science was and how science helped the world. We conducted our own experiment which we all found very exciting! We had to put an indicator into a tray. Then we had to add another liquid which meant that the indicator changed colour. This helped us work out whether it was an acid, alkaline or neutral. It was fun experimenting and questioning what was happening!
