We are trying to encourage drama as much as possible throughout the curriculum. On Tuesday Miss Beverley disappeared and became Farmer Giles. She spoke about her problems at her farm and wanted to know if anyone else had any problems at their farms. We acted our problems/successes out and we are going to write a letter to Farmer Giles telling her about farm life over the past year.
We then received a letter back from Farmer Giles and we found out that he had moved to Australia and bought a new farm with two cows. He sent us a video link and told us about an enormous turnip that wouldn't budge from the ground. We then wrote another letter back to him explaining how we would solve his problem.
Healthy Humans (Science)
This half term we have already learnt about how to keep our bodies healthy. We studied the main three areas of living a healthy lifestyle: A balanced diet, exercise and good personal hygiene. We discussed these areas and did some experiments to test our knowledge.
We then planned, drafted, edited and wrote a non-chronological report on 'being healthy'. Here are some of our drafts and our final pieces.
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas holidays. Thank you for some of the generous Christmas gifts.
This half term our topic is 'Healthy Humans'. To find out what we'll be learning about this half term, read the newsletter below.
Our PE lessons are now on a Tuesday and a Friday
Investors in Pupils
We recently achieved our class target of 'being quiet in the cloakroom'. As our reward we watched a film and ate popcorn. We all brought a film in and voted upon the film that we would watch...just like we do when we vote for a prime minister!
Our new class target is...
To make sure our tables are kept tidy.
It's a good job our table monitors are helping us with this target!
Alive and Kicking visit
We had a visit from John Mee at Alive and Kicking. He introduced us to some drama based on the story of Rapunzel. We all had great fun and enjoyed watching Miss Beverley act as well.
Thank you all for the wonderful Christmas performance 'Christmas with the Aliens'.

Our Year 2 welcome meeting is on Tuesday 12th September at 2.30pm. It would be brilliant if you could all attend. I will send out the powerpoint slides with the children if you missed it.
In the meantime, here is some important information:
I look forward to meeting you all.
