As part of their Phonics session, some of the Year Two children wrote their own frog life cycles. The children looked at the features of an explanation text and had to include: technical language, conjunctions, adverbs of time and information about the stages of a frogs life.

On a lovely, sunny Thursday morning Year Two enjoyed taking part in our sponsored circuits session. We had 6 activity stations that the children were able to work their way around with the rest of their team. I was very impressed with the team work and perseverance from lots of the children. Great work Year Two!!
In Science, Year Two have been learning about food chains. In groups, we had a go at creating our own.
"The food chain starts with a producer." Kathryn.
"The consumer eats something else to give them energy." Alex.
"At the top of the food chain, it's the predator. The predator doesn't get eaten. " Freddie.
"Prey is something that is eaten by a predator." Isabelle.
"The predator eats it's prey." Agatha.
"The energy passes from animal to animal." Albany.
Year Two have been enjoying learning about an Orchestra and have been following the work of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. The children were able to find out about the different families within an orchestra and were then able to join in with some body percussion of their own.
Year Two thoroughly enjoyed watching William's bike riding video, that he made after his recent trip to the Forest of Dean!
