Welcome to Classes 5 and 6
Mexican Hat Dance Performance
Year 2 were very proud to perform a Mexican Hat dance to parents at the end of Term 1. We thoroughly enjoyed learning the dance and giving the different moves super names - jumpity-jump, dosey-doe & skippity-skip!
In Year 2 we have been using equipment (Numicon & Dienes) to complete subtraction number sentences.
Science in Year 2
In science Class 5 have been searching for bugs and their homes. Using our brand new magnifying glasses we spotted woodlouse, ants, spiders and slugs hiding around our school. Afterwards we made bug house to take home.
As part of our topic on Mexico we made and tasted salsa. It was so delicious that we shared with Class 6. In return they shared their scrumptious guacamole!
Autumn Art on Durdham Downs
Year 2 had a wonderful morning exploring natural art on the Downs with the Avon Gorge and Downs education team. We created our own sculpture from leaves and berries. We also made clay animals using natural resources.
“It was the best trip I’ve ever been on!” Aaron
“I liked making art like Andy Goldsworthy. It was fun!” Danny
“I was amazed to find out that Jays can hold 8 acorns in its mouth.” Noah
These are some of the clay animals that we made on our trip to Durdham Downs.
This year our whole school metaphor is boats. We read ‘Little Boat’ by Thomas Docherty. We created stormy pictures using pastels and watercolours. Then we wrote a kenning to describe the boats journey. We are so proud of work that Mrs Simmonds has displayed it in the KS1 corridor – come and have a look!
Here are our Class Charters for the new school year.
