Weekly Update (Week ending 24.5.19)
Well done to all the children for completing their Secret Agent Training (SATs) this week. The children all tried their best and seemed unfazed by them.
We finished off our topic this week by looking at different famous flower paintings. The children expressed what they liked and didn't like about each picture and seemed more keen on the abstract art pieces.
We also looked at different vegetables we can grow in our garden and made sandwiches with a range of healthy ingredients. We then enjoyed eating them on the field together. We used our new instructional writing skills to write up instructions on how we made the sandwiches.
I hope you all have a lovely half term break. I cannot believe it will be our last term together in year 2!
We are going to begin to 'revamp' the flower beds outside of the classroom. One will be allocated to each class in KS1.
If you have any unwanted bits and pieces at home we could use that you no longer need then please do send in for us to use.
Next term in Woodside
Science and Topic
Our new topic is 'At the seaside'
When we return we shall be discussing what aspects about the seaside the children know and would like to know. We shall be looking at what the seaside was like in the past compared to now.

Just enjoy your half term. Spend time as a family.
