Welcome to Cedar!

 

 

AUTUMN TERM 2018

Our topic this term is ‘Victorians.’ We had a great time on our school trip to Colne Valley Railway. We got to watch a Punch and Judy show, ride on a steam train and even meet Queen Victoria herself! We think we looked fabulous all dressed up in our Victorian costumes too! 

When we got back to school, we got to continue wearing our costumes for the rest of the week and had lots of different Victorian style lessons. 

In ICT, Cedar class have been practising logging on to the computers using their own username and password, learning keyboard skills and having a competition to see who can locate the letters quickest.

Child Safety Week - Monday 4th to Friday 8th June 2018

 

As part of child safety week we had a visit from Abbeycroft Leisure to talk about the importance of water safety and how to always following the SAFE code -

Spot - spot the dangers whenever you're near water

Advice - take advice, read the signs, ask a lifeguard or adult for help

Friend - always go with a friend or family, its more fun, and they can help in an emergency

Emergency - know what to do in an emergency

 

The children perform some rescues using jumpers, balls, ropes, paddles and woggles.

Our local area

 

As part of our topic work this term, we have built our own version of Horringer village and made up characters that live there. We have thought about what would happen if a supermarket  was suddenly built near our school. We thought of lots of pros and cons but most of us thought it would be a bad idea. We wrote letters to the council to tell them what we thought and why we would or wouldn’t  like the idea.

Leaf printing

For art this term we are learning about different ways of printing, so today we went outside to paint leaves and print them onto paper. We worked in partners and used lots of bright colours to represent spring. 

Summer term science

 

For science this term we are going to be comparing lots of different plants and finding out how they grow. We had lots of fun looking for different plants on our school field and finding out about the different parts of them. 

WORLD BOOK DAY!

Cedar class looked brilliant in their world book day costumes. We had lots of fun sharing books, writing book reviews and discussing our favourite characters :)

Science

We have been testing different types of gloves to see which material is best for different things. We have been experimenting to see which gloves keep you warm, which are the strongest, which are waterproof and which are best for picking up tiny things. 

Literacy

 

Cedar class and Beech class have been helping each other to research facts about grizzly bears as part of our Alaska topic. We used QR codes and the iPads to get our research from different websites. We are going to use our facts to do some super non fiction writing! 

Maths puzzle day!

 

We have had great fun doing lots of puzzles as part of our maths problem solving day. Some of them were quite challenging but we all worked well as team to be able to solve them! :)

Year 2 PE

 

Year 2 have been enjoying practising yoga moves as part of our PE lessons. We think that it helps our muscles to stretch but also makes us feel relaxed and clam :)

Topic

We have made some fantastic Anglo Saxon Brooches out of salt dough. We had lots of fun kneading the dough and making the patterns. Then we had even more fun painting them!

Topic

 

We had a great time on our school trip to West Stow Anglo Saxon Village! We got to explore lots of different Anglo Saxon village buildings and look in the museum at all of the artefacts. 

Science

 

We have been learning about the changing seasons and have been exploring our school field and playground for different plants and animals. We are going to do the same in winter, spring and summer to see how our environment changes over time.

Autumn 2017

 

For literacy this term we are learning about Myths and Legends so we have been searching for dragons around our school! We found lots of evidence that there had been a dragon on our playground and on our school field. Mrs Skippins made sure that we were protected with fire proof spray and we made sure we collected as much evidence as possible. Take a look at our pictures to see what we found.
