    The Sun

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We have been thinking about why Australia has seasons at different times of the year than us. This has led us to lots of interesting learning about the sun. We have been learning to observe how shadows move throughout the day, that the Earth takes one day to spin on its axis. We have learnt why we have seasons and why there is different weather in different parts of the world. It has been really interesting and the children have shown great curiosity.

    WALT Compare measurements and solve problems.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    The children showed amazing team work this week by solving lots of measurement problems. I observed excellent communication and sharing. We focused on length and height on Monday and will be doing lots on capacity/ volume tomorrow.

    The Woods

    The children had a lovely play in the woods today. They explored a den and tunnel they found, there was lots of imaginative play and some children decided to create beautiful pictures using natural materials. (This is a bunny.)

    WALT Add different media to our art.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    In geography, we have been looking at physical and human features of Australia. They have described and labelled the beautiful physical features such as rainforests and mountains and created a map full of drawings of human features. We then used this knowledge to add details to our large art work using pastels and collage. The results look amazing, the children did so well.

    WALT Look ahead.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Year 2 had the opportunity to ask visitors from Year 3 lots of questions about next year. It seems that they are looking forward to a new classroom and new teacher. However, whilst some are looking forward to the challenge of harder work others are a little curious about homework, times tables, division and what topics they will have. The Year 3s answered absolutely brilliantly reassuring the children that you get used to the harder work, that teachers make things fun and my favourite quote, "It may be harder but if you try hard you can achieve anything!"
