    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Have a wonderful half term and a break from home learning. I am so impressed by how many activities you have completed and how much home learning you have done, so time for a rest and some fun! If you do need any ideas to keep you entertained Mrs Court has emailed you some challenges today. Of course, reading is still very important. Take care everyone, stay safe and enjoy yourselves.

    Geography

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Today's challenge was geography: LP To ask and answer geographical questions. Year 2 were asked to pick a country that you would like to know more about or even visit when this is all over. Then they were asked to try and think of some questions they would like to find out about that place such as: What is this place like? What or who will I see in this place? What do people do in this place? Where is it? Etc. They then had to research to find the answers. Some children presented their findings as posters such as Isaac and Harry!

    Year 2 were asked to explore texture today. Their first challenge was to create a pattern on Purple Mash using the different textures. Texture is the way something feels. The children were invited to watch an online video and look at the Tate kids website page for a bit of help too. They found out that artists have to try and make something look like it feels a certain way. They do this using shading and different strokes with a pencil or brush and by using different tools. Here are a few Purple Mash patterns by George, Owen and Hugo.

    Teddy and Amelie choose to find texture in their environments. Teddy has taken rubbings from grave stones to discover the pattern and texture and then used pencils to make the patterns stand out. Amelie has completed some leaf rubbings and shown these lovely shapes.

    Freyja explored texture by using different objects to paint with and also by applying the paint in different ways. If you would like to get more ideas like Freyja you can explore this website: https://www.tate.org.uk/kids/make/paint-draw/have-fun-textures

    Finally, Isaac did a texture hunt around his home and garden and then created this beautiful masterpiece! He used different tools to create the different textured paint such as bumpy rollers. He also added extra materials like bubble wrap. It is amazing!

    PSHE

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Today year 2 have focused on our PSHE learning. One activity was to think about a conflict we have experienced and how to resolve it in a positive way. Year 2 wrote about arguments with siblings when something happens that they don't like or they want the same toy. They also spoke about being blamed and how adults, speaking calming and sharing can help.

    LP To understand how it feels to trust someone. Another activity was to draw themselves in a circle. They were then given lots of pictures of different kinds of people. They were asked to place inside the circle any of these people that they trust and place the others outside the circle. Closer if they think they might be able to trust them but are unsure and further away if they would definitely not trust them. Their answers were really interesting. Well done Year 2.

    We have also been learning about plants and those that are evergreen and deciduous. Year 2 were asked to spot plants on their walk or in their garden and list them. I have had some beautifully written and illustrated work handed in. Josh decided to type his and include photos. Awesome!
