Year 2

26th April 2021

Year 2 have been making micro habitats in Forest School. They also made spiral Rainbow snakes after reading the traditional Aboriginal creation story of how the world began. On Tuesday, the children found warning signs around the classrooms alerting us that Blue Beauty is in danger. They had to investigate and decipher who Blue Beauty is by using the clues in our classroom. They worked out that Blue Beauty is Earth and Earth needs our help! They wrote pledges that explain how they will help the planet. In Maths, the children have been focusing on measuring. They have been busy comparing and measuring objects in metres and centimetres. Finally, in English they have been learning about the Aboriginal story ‘Rainbow Serpent’ and created their own colourful Rainbow Serpents. The children will need a cardboard tube (as in kitchen towel or wrapping paper tubes) for art on Tuesday 4th May. If you have any, please send them in.
