Year 2 - scavenger hunts, weaving and celebrating differences

What a jam-packed week it has been! We have celebrated two really important events. The first was Remembrance Day on Wednesday, when we listened to some poetry about poppies and then observed a two minute silence. Then, on Friday, we enjoyed Children in Need Day when the children have been ‘going dotty’ for spots. We joined in with Joe Wicks’ 24 hour work out and had a great time, raising our heart rates and getting fitter for Children in Need.

On Thursday afternoon, we had a lot of fun in Forest School. The children enjoyed creating head-dresses out of natural materials and then went on a scavenger hunt around the field and woodland area. Art projects outside included creating imaginary creatures made out of leaves, painting with leaves and making a Forest School crown.

In the classroom, the Year 2 children have continued to work hard. In Learning for Life, we have been considering how we are similar and how we are different. When asked why it is good to be different, Dylan and Eleanor said “the world would be boring if we were all the same”. We have continued to think about Katie Morag and the Isle of Coll. As part of our topic, we learned about the traditional craft of weaving. The children had a go at weaving paper, and the results are beautiful and bright!
