This week we have been reading a fable from Ghana about a spider called Anansi and today we made our own Anansi spiders. Listen to the song we learnt about Anansi.
We have been looking at art work by Kandinsky and tried to do some of our own in sketch books and as a class in his style.
This week we have been making Arrays.
Do you know what the multiplication and repeated addition is for these arrays?
Year 2 worked very hard learning about their topic last term and on Friday they finished their topic by recreating the Great Fire of London with the 17th century houses they had made.
This afternoon we went into the hall and thought about the dilemma that the girl faces in our story, ' The Tunnel'.
We decided to make noises with our voices that we might hear inside a tunnel.... dripping noises, spooky ghostly sounds, tapping noises. Then, we introduced some instruments and used them to make different sounds too. It was rather noisy and loud in the hall!
Afterwards, we couldn't believe it when Mr Williams told us he had found a tunnel in the corridor! We had a dilemma.... do we go through it or not? All the Year 2 children were very brave and fearless, and crept through the tunnel whilst others made noises outside.
We got a real feeling for what it might've been like for the two characters in our story to enter the dark, mysterious tunnel .
What an exciting day we had in 2P ! Today, two Paramedics came to school to tell us all about their job and to answer our questions. We had the opportunity to get inside the ambulance and to see some of the equipment that they use in an emergency. We got to put on special gloves , have our heart rate checked and sit in the bed! We even got to go on the lift at the back! What a fun day we had!
