Year 2, your amazing weather homework has brought a ray of sunshine to the school office this week- thank you so much for bringing it in to show us! Mrs Howard had a look at it when she came in to school to visit, and was amazed at how hard you have all worked.

low-res4THE GREAT YEAR 2 BAKE OFF!

Yesterday children from Year 2 took part in their very own bake off. The challenge was to make 90 cupcakes in just 90 minutes. Before they started their bakes, each class had to go through their ingredients list to decide how much of each ingredient they would need to make their delicious chocolate chip cupcakes. Following the rather messy task of measuring and mixing the cakes were baked in the oven, and after giving them a little time to cool down, the children headed out to the Chill Zone to sample their culinary creations. Well done, everyone- you’re all star bakers for this week!

2SF BLOG POST: BOATSIMG_0986- website and newsletter only, not social media

On Wednesday and Thursday last week our class made boats. Our mission was to design and make a boat that would float on water and carry a Lego figure as a passenger. We had to think carefully about what we used to make our boats. We thought about what we had learnt in science when we learnt about the properties of materials. Most of our class used plastic for the base of their boat.

Plastic was a good choice because it is waterproof and it floats on water. Most of our boats had a mast and a flag. We filled a paddling pool with clean, transparent water and tested our designs. We were pleased with the results– 2SF

UPCOMING TRIP: SEA LIFE CENTRE

As part of our ‘Under the Sea’ topic, we have arranged for the children to visit the Sea Life Centre at the Trafford Centre. The classes will visit on different days so that they have opportunities to ‘see’ everything and take part in some exciting workshops. 2KW will visit on Tuesday 24th May, 2SF will visit on Wednesday 25th May and 2FM will visit on Thursday 26th May. We will be travelling there and back on the bus and will leave school after morning registration and return in time for the end of the school day.

UNDER THE SEA!2016-05-04_09.16.18

Year 2s have really been enjoying their ‘Under the Sea’ topic, and have created some fantastic pieces of homework to show it.

One of the highlights was a life-size poster of an orca, which was painted by Evan from 2FM. The poster was so big that it took ten children to hold it up for a photograph!

Other fabulous creations included a scrummy ocean cake, which was baked by Luke from 2SF, and an impressive hammerhead shark, made by Connie in 2SF.

Great work everyone, you really brought the magic of the underwater world to life!
