Delight in Effort, Acceptance and Achievement


  ๐Ÿฅž Pancakes! ๐Ÿฅž 


P2 made pancakes!
๐Ÿ˜‹ They tasted delicious!๐Ÿ˜‹ 


We don’t have any photographs of us eating them as they disappeared in seconds!

After we made our pancakes we wrote our own instructions “How to make delicious pancakes”.

 ๐Ÿฆ† Birds and Cheeky Squirrels! ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ 


As part of our current topic, winter and birds, we have been making bird feeders and taking part in the BBC bird watch.
We have lots of different birds visit our window during the day, however they are too fast for the camera!

The cheeky squirrels who like to pinch the bird feeders are not shy! They like to hang around during the day and even bang on the window! 

๐Ÿœ Making Noodles ๐Ÿœ 


As part of our Chinese New Year celebrations we made noodles!
We did not know how to make noodles, so we followed the instructions on the packet “Step by step”  

We discovered that instructions are ‘short and sharp’ and only give us the “Important bits of information”.
We ate our noodles with chop sticks, which was tricky!
Mr Bell thought our noodles were delicious! ๐Ÿ˜‹ 



โœ๏ธ Spellings ๐Ÿ”ก


In term 2 P2 start spellings in school.  
On Monday we are introduced to our new ‘sound family’ for the week. 

We explore our new sound family words (6-8 words), along with high frequency words (2-4 words) through a range of multi-sensory activities.
We practice our spellings everyday in our work books, ready for our word challenge on Friday.  
P2 are doing amazingly well with their spellings….they cannot be tricked during their word challenge!



๐Ÿ“ Measuring with Non-Standardised Units ๐Ÿ“


P2 have been exploring measuring with non-standardised units.  We have been busy measuring with cubes, paper clips, hand spans and even our feet! 
We only managed to capture a few photographs - we were having too much fun!

 ๐Ÿฒ Making Vegetable Soup ๐Ÿฒ


We have been enjoying reading ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ and discussing how it is good to try new things.  
P2 decided that they would like to be like Oliver and try new vegetables.
We wrote a shopping list of vegetables that we would like to try and sent Miss Murray to the shop!

We decided that the best way to taste the vegetables was to make vegetable soup.
We chopped the vegetables and put them into a pot.  

We dissolved stock cubes and poured them into the pot.  

We cooked the soup.  

The next day we ate the soup at snack time.
It was delicious! Even Mr Bell and Maja thought so!
They asked us how we made our soup.

We wrote instructions and gave them to Mr Bell and Maja so they could make soup at home.

๐Ÿ”บExploring Shape๐Ÿ”ธ


We have been having lots of fun exploring 2D shapes through a range of activities.  
We are busy reinforcing their names and properties.

๐Ÿ“ฑ Staying Safe Online ๐Ÿ“ฑ


We have been learning about how to stay safe online.  We are taking an interactive quiz about what information to share (arms open) and what information to keep safe (arms closed).


๐Ÿ“ฑ Sumdog ๐Ÿ“ฑ

We have had a busy morning completing our Sumdog diagnostic test๐Ÿ“ฑ

I am happy to report we are all finished and the children can play online in school and at home! ๐ŸŽฎ

 ๐Ÿ˜ˆ Name Monsters! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ


We enjoyed transforming our names into monsters!
We explored the different heights and shapes of the letters before carefully cutting them out and adding arms, legs and eyes! 

 ๐Ÿ”ข Exploring Number ๐Ÿ”ข


We are revising our number knowledge of numbers 1-10 through a carousel of practical.

 ๐Ÿ”  Exploring Capital Letters ๐Ÿ” 


We made our own salt dough to help us explore the capital letters on our names.  
We followed the recipe and mixed salt, flour and water together to make the dough. ๐Ÿฅฃ

We rolled the dough to form the shape of the capital letters in our name.

It was sticky!
