Year Two loved taking part in a teddy bear tennis taster session this morning. A very big thank you to the coaches from Lostock Tennis Club, who came in to deliver the sessions. We learned how to use the racket to hit the ball using a Molly Volley and a forehand swing. We all aimed high and had lots of fun learning Tennis.
Year Two have had a fabulous World Book Day. We want to say a big thank you to our parents and grandparents for coming and reading with us this morning.
This afternoon, we have enjoyed taking part in lots of story activities. We wrote book reviews, character descriptions, designed new book covers, went on a book scavenger hunt and played character heads up. What is your favourite story book?
This half term Year Two have started a new creative curriculum topic. Our topic this half term is castles. This week we began to research medieval castles and their features. In our creative curriculum lesson, some of us chose the making challenge. We used junk modelling materials to make our own castles. Once our castles were complete, we labelled the different features. Can you name the features of a medieval castle?
This morning Year Two had lots of fun at Forest School! It was very wet but we still took part in lots of activities. In the reflection at the end of the session some of us even said that the best part of the session today was getting wet!
This week Year Two have been on the Interfaith Trail. We visited a Mosque, a Mandir and a Church. We loved learning all about the different places of worship and listening to the leaders. We found out lots of interesting facts.
We had a fabulous day learning about different cultures and religions. What was your favourite part of the day?
