Year 2 News – Spring 1 – Week 5

Week commencing 06.02.23

This week we enjoyed making our dragon eyes using clay. We used the joining and modelling skills we have been learning to add detail and to make sure our designs hold together. The children also explored using the clay tools and the effects that can be made with them.

In English, the children have written diary entries in the role of Zog the dragon and then followed instructions to make a paper plate dragon. They really enjoyed making them and then wrote their own instructions for someone else to follow!

In music, we learned another note to play on the recorder and had fun putting three different notes together in a tune. We also thoroughly enjoyed applying our knowledge of music in computing, using different tools on computer software.

Have a look at the website if your child would like to try it at home:

RSPB’s Great British Birdwatch

Today the Eco warriors took part in the RSPB’s Great British Birdwatch. We located ourselves near the allotment beds because we’ve heard lots of chirping there before. We only saw one little sparrow making the noise but we did see a lot of pigeons, one blackbird, 2 crows, 1 magpie, 4 black headed gulls and one red kite.

It’s not too late for you to take part at home too – you have until the 19th February!
