Trip to Patchings

Today we visited Patchings Art Farm for our school trip. We met Liz the artist who told us all about aboriginal paintings. We all had a go at doing our own snake aboriginal painting using acrylic paint and cotton buds. We think our snakes and water holes are brilliant!

Thank you to Mrs Wagland for helping us today too!

 

 

Year 2 take part in the 500 words live lesson.

On Monday 16th January, the BBC streamed a live Creative writing lesson launching this years 500 words story writing competition. We all thoroughly enjoyed this fast paced and very creative lesson, sending in ideas and questions. Go to the 500 words website to explore more. Perhaps you could write and send a story in?

Fun Fractions in 2W

This week, 2W have been learning how to recognise simple fractions, create comparative fractions and find the fraction of a given number and they have all worked very hard on this tricky focus. We started, where any good lesson should start by eating cake! By working practically, the class gained a really good understanding of how to create fractions equally and had a treat at the end of the lesson too.
