Odd sock day – Class 2

On Monday afternoon Class 2 did an absolutely amazing job of delivering an whole school worship based on Anti Bullying week!

The children explained what bullying was and also showed an experiment we had completed in class.

We used two apples which looked exactly the same on the outside. To the first apple we only said kind things like ‘You’re so shiny’ or ‘You look strong’. When we cut it open the inside looked normal.

With the second apple, even though it was hard, we said some not very nice things like ‘You’re all squishy’ or ‘You’re too soft’. When we cut it open the inside looked hurt showing that even if things don’t show on the outside mean words or actions can hurt us on the inside.

Finally on Tuesday,  we encouraged everyone to take part in Odd sock day, to celebrate that everyone is different!

A big thank you to everyone who took part!

Outdoor Learning – Class 2

This afternoon Class 2 have been exploring the forest school area and completing activities linked to our science topic.

Firstly we were looking at seasonal change and used colour catchers and Autumn checklists to find a range of signs of Autumn.

We also used animal cards to make our food chains

 

Exotic Zoo – Class 2

On Monday 21st October Class 2 visited Exotic zoo in Telford as part of our rainforest topic!

When we arrived we had time to freely explore the zoo and see the animals being fed.

After that we had a very exciting lesson in which we had the opportunity to met and hold (if we wanted to) a range of animals which live in the rainforest.

We met Gary and Little Gee who were Giant African Land Snails.

Jabba the Giant African Bullfrog

Rango the Chameleon

Sweet Pea the Boa Constrictor

Melon the Armadillo

After dinner we had another explore before getting the bus back to school

We all (adults included) had such an amazing day and all the children were brilliantly behaved, even our guide for the day said that they were one of the loveliest classes he had ever had!

Frida Kahlo – Class 2

Class 2 have been looking at the life and works of Frida Kahlo!

We finished our topic by creating our very own self portraits inspired by Frida Kahlo and the rainforest!

They look fantastic!

 

Newspaper reports – Class 2

Here are just some of our amazing newspaper reports following the stampede last week!

They will all be available to look at during parents evening.

Shocking stampede causes chaos! – Class 2

This morning Class 2 were shocked and amazed to find this clip on the school CCTV footage!

You won’t believe what happened over the weekend!!

Class 2 will be writing a news report based on this footage this week!

Roald Dahl Day – Class 2

We had so much fun in Class 2 on Roald Dahl day! We read parts of lots of different Roald Dahl books, we learnt about Roald Dahl and wrote our own fact files, we even played Roald Dahl games in our P.E. session.

Look at our amazing costumes!

Class 1 and 2 – Golf Session

On Friday afternoon Class 1 and 2 went out onto the field to try their hands at golf!

They were lucky enough to all have a coaching session from Tom.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it!

Class 2 – Visit to the British Ironworks Centre

On Wednesday 26th June Class 2 visited the British Ironworks Centre!

We did lots of great activities!

We all created our own pebbles to go on the wiggler path. We even made one for the whole of Bryn Offa!

We also went on  a tour of the showroom and hunted for as many different materials as we could find. We found rubber, plastic, metal, fabric, leather and wood.

Over lunch we completed a drawing competition! We had to draw our favourite sculpture from the day. They were judged by members of staff at the centre. A big well done to George (1st), Maddie (2nd) and Alfie (3rd).

We visited a potter called Georgie who showed us how to make a bowl out of clay.

We completed the safari quiz going through all the incredible animals and finding the answers to some very tricky questions! Of course we took Safari Bear with us!

Finally we had a really special treat of ice cream pots!!
