Year 2 had a great day at Hamerton Zoo! The weather was perfect, and all the animals were out for us to see!
We had a close encounter with a camel, goats, a skunk, a snake and a tiger!! (The reptile house was being cleaned all day, so we could not see any of those).
In our workshop we listened to one of the zoo keepers explain to us about adaptation and habitats. It was very interesting, and we knew lots of the answers from our topic and science lessons!

What a week we have had! It has been World Book Day and International Women's Day, as well as all of our fabulous learning.
We had lots of fun on World Book Day dressing up and acting out scenes from Cinderella (Miss Allen's favourite book!) and performing them to the rest of the class.
On International Women's Day we learnt all about Princess Diana and Jane Goodall. We thought about the questions we might ask Princess Diana and then created a fact file about Jane Goodall. As a class, we also made a video about the important women in our lives.
It has been a very fun week!

We have had a very busy term in Koala class!
We have been busy writing stories, dividing, multiplying and learning about materials in Science!
Have a look at all the things we will be learning in the Spring term...
We will be looking at food chains! This links in with our Topic this term!
We start the Spring term by looking at measuring. Maybe you could get some practice in around your home before we come back!
Animals! I am really looking forward to learning all about this!
We are going to be writing stories and non-chronological reports.
I am VERY excited to seeing you all back in January!
Have a great Christmas!
We had a great WOW day last week! It was wonderful to see so many of the children dressed up in their costumes! We had lots of fun making candles, buttons, scent bags, sewing and we even made some medicine in the apothecary! We learnt lots of new facts, but we also showed how much we had already learnt this term! We can't wait till the next one!

Koalas have been super busy this term! I can’t believe how much we have achieved in the first half term!
We have been learning all about different scientists. We have made telephones, used our senses and even looked at the importance of washing our hands!
We have had lots of fun writing stories about The Great Fire of London. We then moved on to writing instructions. We pretended that we were bakers in Thomas Farriner’s bakery! The best part was tasting lots of different breads and making our own jam sandwiches.
Koala class have been learning all about place value, addition and subtraction! We have worked so hard – and we are all superstars at adding and subtracting! Come and test us!
We have LOVED learning about The Great Fire of London! You won’t believe all the facts we can remember! We are looking forward to our WOW day in November – which is a day full of The Great Fire of London activities!
Have a look at some of the photos to see just how much fun we have been having!
