BUTTERFLIES IN P2 πŸ¦‹

Today was a very special day as we got to release our class butterflies.  We have been observing them closely for weeks, growing from tiny caterpillars into beautiful butterflies.  It was a very special moment when we set them free! Check out our photos to see the amazing butterfly life-cycle.  Well done to all in P2 for being excellent butterfly keepers πŸ‘πŸ¦‹

 HOLIDAYS πŸ˜Žβ˜€οΈ
Our new topic in P2 is Holidays.  Check out some of the fun activities we have been doing in play recently.   

 2D and 3D shapes 

We rotated around the classroom engaging in lots of shape activities.  These included making 2D shapes with lollipop sticks, sorting 2D shapes on a Venn Diagram, listening to Talking Tins to hear a description of a 3D shape then we had to find it, and sorting 3D shapes for different criteria.  Practical maths is fun! πŸ”ΊπŸŸ§πŸŸ‘πŸ”Ή

Our spring and minibeast topic continued through play

P.e. - working on our core muscles and balance

Planting Seeds!
As part of our instructional writing, we made and followed a set of instructions to plant sunflower seeds.  πŸŒ»  We can’t wait to observe them closely and watch them grow πŸ˜ƒ
Spring has sprung in Play Based Learning! 🌼

INSTRUCTIONAL WRITING 

 

Today we followed a recipe to make Rainbow Kebabs.  We looked at the ingredients and then the method which told us what we had to do. We also discovered that instructions tend to have lots of ‘bossy words’ in them. The best part was getting to eat our kebabs after! πŸπŸ“πŸ‡πŸŒπŸŽ

WELCOME BACK P2! 🌟😁

 

Today we started our new topic on Spring and Minibeasts by going on a hunt for signs of Spring β›…οΈπŸŒΌπŸŒ·πŸ¦‹

Sorting 2D shapes on a Venn diagram

Using a tree diagram to sort objects

WAU

Today we acted like scientists and observed how two materials can react together.  To so do we added vinegar to baking soda (along with some glitter!) and made Christmas explosions!  It was great fun watching them bubble and fizz. 

Exploring Christmas through Play
ODD SOCK DAY

TOY SHOP 

Buying toys using 1p, 2p and 5p coins. 

ANTI-BULLYING WEEK

Today we tried an experiment where we squeezed out toothpaste, then we had the challenge of trying to put it back into the tube. This was very difficult!
The fact we weren’t able to to put the paste back in reminded us if we say rude or hurtful words to our friends, we can’t take them back.  We must always think carefully about what we are going to say. 

REMEMBRANCE DAY 2020

This week we have been making poppies during play.  We have painted them, made them with dough and constructed them with Lego.  We also watched a lovely video explaining why we wear poppies. 

LITERACY - ROAD SAFETY

STOP! LOOK! LISTEN! THINK! 

MONEY

This week we have been learning to recognise and name coins up to 20p.  

DITCH THE DARK DAY!

Dave from Sustrans provided us with a virtual assembly explaining the importance of wearing  something bright.  Everyone looked great in their bright colours! 🌟

CAPACITY

Recognising amounts and using mathematical language associated with capacity. 

HANDLING QUOITS IN P.E.
LEARNING THE ALPHABET

FAIRY TALE TOPIC CONTINUED DURING PLAY...

Using play dough to make and weigh gingerbread men then taking these to sell at our class bakery...Watching sand “go through” the water wheels, just like the mills in the story of the Little Red Hen...threading shoe laces through 2D shapes and building shoes at the construction area like little elves from the Elves and The Shoemaker...And making ‘Silly Soup’ at the water tray with spiders, skeletons and other halloween objects!

VEGETABLE PRINTING
RE/ART
We have been learning about Harvest and how thankful we are for all the fruit and vegetables we receive.  Today we decided to observe and draw a range of fruit and vegetables using pastels. 
Weighing objects and discussing which is heavier or lighter 

NATIONAL POETRY DAY

Looking for signs of Autumn to help us write a poem.

Practical addition within 5

World Around Us

This week we’ve been looking at the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and how the giant lived in a castle.  We then looked at the features of a castle and built our own using 2D shapes. 

PLAY
 
P.E. - developing our handling skills using beanbags

Fairy tale castles 

We used chalks to create a castle outline then sponge painted the walls.  To finish, we cut out 2D shapes and stuck them down as windows, doors and towers. 

Invisible Sounds

Learning to read and write our spellings this week using chalks, water and brushes. It’s great fun watching the sounds disappear!

WAU - The Three Little Pigs Experiment 

Today we worked in teams to build houses made from straw, sticks and bricks.  We made predictions and then tested the strength of each material using a hairdryer as The Big Bad Wolf. It was interesting (and exciting) to see which material could stay standing!

Hairy Letters

Today we worked on our letter formations and sound recognition using the iPads. 

Fairy Tales 

Our new World Around Us topic is Fairy Tales.  We love incorporating it into our Play!
