Year 2 Class News
Year 2 have enjoyed taking part in their cookery lessons this half term. The children learnt the best ways to be hygienic when cooking; washing hands, not licking fingers and equipment and the reasons why it is not good to do these things. We spoke about ways to stay safe in the kitchen, for eg. not using sharp knives or the oven without adult supervision.
In week two the children had the opportunity to make their own fruit salad cup, which they filled with grapes, strawberries, apples and satsumas. In week three, the children made pitta pizzas. They watched a video about making dough and how in some pizzerias they swing the dough in the air to stretch it out. The children also enjoyed making rice krispy cakes. We spoke about solids and liquids whilst watching the chocolate melt.
Autumn Term 2
Year 2 had worked hard every week in our wows and wellbeing sessions to learn songs and actions for our Christmas play. The children rehearsed their lines, thinking about how to project their voices and use some expression too. Groups of children worked incredibly hard to learn dance routines and be in time with the music. We are so proud of all their hard work and effort.
Autumn Term 1
This term In Geography we have been learning about the seven continents and five oceans.
The children solved jigsaw puzzles of world maps and were able to confidently name the seven continents and five oceans.
The children also have been learning a song to help them remember the names of each continent.
Summer Term 2
In Year 2, our community cohesion project is about donating shoes to the Sal's Shoes Project.
The children have learnt information about the project, who set it up and why. We decided to delay donating shoes until Summer Term 2 as most children will buy new shoes for September, so will be able to donate their shoes in July. The children have all designed posters to put up during this half term.
Summer Term 1
Year 2 have been super excited to make and bake some delicious food this half term. The children had the opportunity to use the cooking room in the secondary building where they have made; fruit kebabs, scones and pizza. Year 2 were able to discuss and learn about how to stay safe in a kitchen using sharp and hot equipment. The children were all excited to take their food home to eat.
