This term we have been learning about China. Yesterday we explored Chinese culture and tasted some Chinese food!
Yesterday was our final forest schools session. We started our session by relaxing by Mother oak. We thought about what we could see, feel, smell and hear. We then went into the forest and learnt how to make a camp fire. We had to collect a variety of sticks to help Willow Watts build the fire. When the fire was ready we were able to toast marshmallows. We also had all of our favourite activities out: den building, clay and stick men.
We had an amazing last session and will miss the ladies at forest schools. Thank you for their amazing help. We can't wait to plant our own present from mother oak at school.
What an amazing day! I am so proud of my class for showing great perseverance and sportsmanship.
Well done to everyone for their hard work. Congratulations to the yellow team for winning!! 🏆
After another fab day at forest schools (blog post to follow) it seems lots of the class have a lot of bites. There were a lot of bugs in the forest and I apologise for the bites.
If you would like to bring cream or medicine into school to soothe the bites then please do.
I would advise getting some bug repellant spray for next session or using a suncream with bug repellant in it (I will buy some too!).
I am sorry again. Hopefully everyone will be feeling less itchy soon!
We had an amazing afternoon at Ipswich girls school.
We introduced ourselves and learnt the important rules for whilst we are in the forest.
We played some introduction games where we learnt the boundaries for where we could play in the forest.
Then we were allowed to explore the area, there was a range of activities:
We also had hot chocolate AND biscuits!!
We played another game where we had to listen very carefully to find who had the toy bird behind their back.
It was so much fun and we can't wait for next week.
The SATs are over!
I am so incredibly proud of each of the children in Year 2 for their hard work and determination during these tests. The children were not told that they were doing "the SATs" just more "special booklets" but they were amazing.
We will be having a whole day of History in preparation for our mini fair tomorrow afternoon. We hope to see you there!
Enjoy the beautiful weather! :)
