On Wednesday this week we had our Transition day. We all went into assembly to find out who our new teacher was going to be. At New Cross StreetÂ 2SG will become 3BB with Miss Birch, 2CL will become 3JB with Mrs Beckett and at Usher Street 2TM will become 3TM with Mrs Marson. We spent the the morning in our new classrooms getting to know our new teachers and letting them get to know us.
Challenge: What was your favourite part of Transition day? What will you miss most about Year 2?
On our trip day we walked to the orchard with our teachers.Â Â When we got thereÂ weÂ hunted for minibeasts, made leaf rubbings and did pond dipping. We had some bug viewers and Julia showed us how to catch minibeasts inÂ a net. We saw lots of different wild plants and flowersÂ growing and talked about different habitats called a meadow and a hedge. We saw tiny baby apples on the fruit trees. They will be ready to pick and eat in the Autumn when you have all moved into Year 3.
Challenge: What can you remember about a meadow habitat?
Do you know how to plant a seed? We have been writing instructions this week and planting seeds in class. 2CL planted sunflowers, 2TM planted cress and 2SG planted peas. Over the next few weeks we will be watching them grow and learning how to take care of plants.
You could have a go at this Let Me GrowÂ game and help the plants get water to grow strong.
We have been learning about instructions this week.
We have been reading instructions and learning how to make a paper hat, wrap a present, draw a frog and brush our teeth. We looked at recipes andÂ we made our ownÂ healthy pizza.Â Can you write a sentence for each picture to describe what we are doing?
