After a quick trip to the field, 2C enjoyed some zumba! We waved our arms in time- some of us, moved our legs and shook our bottoms to the music. A fantastic effort shown by all the children!
FInally, 2C finished off the day with a healthy, competitive game of dodgeball with Mr Sims.
2C had a fantastic time with Aspens and the smoothie bike. They learnt about some fruits and then made weird and wonderful concoctions for the smoothies. We needed some strong legs to then ride the bike and blend the fruit into smoothies.
Year 2 starting off with some hooping this morning for Health Week.
2C incorporated their Music curriculum with Health Week and the World Cup by listening to some examples of World Cup songs and then writing their own rap; just like John Barnes in the ‘World In Motion’ song for the 1990 World Cup. They wrote their rap songs, thinking carefully about rhyming words and the beat, and then played musical instruments when performing. Well done!
What a way to start Health Week! 2C had a fantastic time practising their skipping skills. Excellent teamwork really impressed the adults when it came to one particular trick.
2C enjoyed using the NowPressPlay headphones to follow the story and rescue their sister from the dragon. They had to use three different maps, follow compass directions to find a way to the dragon’s lair and draw their own to enlist help.
They were all successful, phew!
Today, 2C used the beebots to follow instructions and find out where they led. We used a range of mats and programmed the beebots showing that we can read directions.
We then used an app on the IPads called A.L.E.X. We had to write a set of directions for the robot to follow and get him from A to B.
A very enjoyable math lesson!
Last Friday, Key Stage One led a beautiful liturgy to celebrate the love shown by Mary. We remembered who she is to us, how she protects us and how our mothers do the same. Excellent reading and lovely singing. Thank you to Father John and all the parents who joined us.
