This week P2 have welcomed Miss Wood and Miss Notman into their classroom. Miss Wood worked with the boys and girls on Monday and Tuesday and Miss Notman on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
They have been very busy this week learning about doubling to 20, revising the oi sound and writing sentences.
P2 learned all about dinosaur fossils this week and had a go at making some fossils from play dough. We used the play dough to make imprints of dinosaur footprints as well. (Pictures below)
With Miss Notman we made dinosaur masks. Can you guess who’s behind the masks? Which dinosaur do you think looks the scariest? (Pictures below)
Finally this week the boys and girls made Mother’s Day cards with Miss Wood. Hopefully yours from your child.
Another one of our STEM advent challenges was to use chromatography to find out what colours were in the colour black. We had some interesting discoveries. Once we had set up our experiment we had to be patient and watch the water separate the colours. There was blue, purple, brown, green and a little orange all in the colour black. We then experimented with different colours.
This week we were challenged to construct 3D snowflakes! We worked in pairs and made 6 circles, 12 triangles and 1 Square before sticking them together to form our snowflakes.
For the first day of our STEM advent calendar we were challenged to see how long a paper chain we could make using only one piece of A4 paper each! The longest 2 chains were both 180cm! When we attached them all together they made it round half of the classroom.
This week we were looking at the ‘oo’ sound. Everyone had a great time searching in books to see what ‘oo’ words they could find and writing them on the board. We also did lots of other activities with ‘oo’
We went outside to explore the playground to see how many different habitats we could find for nature. It turns out there are lots of places for insects to hide!
It was a very spooky day in p2 today. Everyone enjoyed making their masks and treat bags, then playing Halloween twister and pass the pumpkin!
Before the October break we created our own sock puppets. Since then we have been using them to make stories and put on shows.
