Data collecting!

We went out into the school grounds to collect data of the colour of cars that staff have as we will be looking at pictograms, tally charts and bar graphs further in our Maths learning. The children really enjoyed it and we found out which one was the most popular...have a look at the different representations of the pictograms the children created.

Islamic Teachings

This term in Year 2, we have been learning about the Islamic religion. We looked at what type of food is considered halal, what rules Muslim people have to follow in order to make sure the food is halal and also what clothing different Muslim denominations wear and the different ways the head covering can be displayed. We tried to portray this using our own scarf-like material to see how their lives differ from our own.

Jaws and Claws!

On Friday 7th February, Year 2 were lucky enough to meet Phil from Jaws and Claws who taught us all about the different animals that you can find living in the Rainforest. This is linked to our topic for this term, Contrasting Locations where we have been looking at the hottest parts of the world and why certain animals adapt to hot/cold environments while becoming aware of how we can look after our world. He brought in a very friendly tenrec called Tina, some African snails, hissing cockroaches (that ended up on Miss Haxhiu's head), Buster and Elvis the tree frogs, a milk snake, two tortoises and a tarantula! The children were very brave, excited and listened very carefully to his amazing facts whilst having the opportunity to hold the animals if they wanted to. Below you will find a mixture of photos!
