Fairies are Visiting our Classrooms
Year 2 are very lucky to have a fairy family visit us this term. Blossom, her little sister Raindrop and their large family have come to stay. We are helping to teach them how to behave in school. We have written our class rules for them to read and model each day how to be good friends.
Every day, the fairies leave us a letter to find. We read all about their lives and they ask us to complete challenges for them.
We have had some fabulous fairy houses created for homework.
Searching for Fairies in Forest School
We were lucky enough to start the year off with an adventure in Leighwoods Forest School. We had great fun building a shelter, lopping branches to weave a roof, cooking fairy pizzas, whittling sticks to roast marshmallows, creating mud faces, collecting fire wood, picking blackberries and playing games. We even had the chance to make our own forest sprites to leave in the woods.
Making Fairy Cakes and Fairy Jars
We spent time in the cookery room, making and decorating fairy cakes. We combined dry ingredients with liquid to bake our cakes. Weighing scales and measuring jugs helped us to practise our maths.
We all made fairy jars and put our wishes for the year in the bottom. We painted our own fairies, decorated the jars and sprinkled a bit of fairy dust.
St Peter's Celebrated their 10th Birthday
Year 2 joined the school in celebrating our 10th birthday. We had fun in the soft play, enjoyed the bouncy castle, made party hats and loved having a picnic for lunch. There was the biggest birthday cake we had ever seen and it was absolutely delicious.
Noah's Ark Zoo Farm
The whole school went to Noah's Ark Zoo Farm on Monday. We had a fantastic time looking at the animals, exploring the maze and playing on the equipment.
Team Building in PE
Year 2 have been working as a team in PE to complete challenges. We have had to cross the river using only mats, raced to pass a hoop over our team's linked hands, untangled ourselves, worked to build a structure and have worked as a team to collect treasure using compass points.
Owl Class will be performing 'Conkers' for their harvest song.
