Easter in Class 2

This week in Class 2 we have been exploring how materials can change when heated or cooled. We decided to make some Easter nests by melting chocolate and pouring it over some rice crispies. We put the buns in the fridge to cool and set the chocolate.

Alexander won the Easter egg character competition in Class 2. He made some ‘eggmazing’ Pokémon egg characters.

On Tuesday we walked up to church to participate in our Easter service. We did a brilliant performance of our song.

Have a wonderful Easter!

Sense of Sight

During our English lessons this week we have been learning how to use a dictionary and alphabetical order to locate a word and then find its definition. We have also been learning about our sense of sight and how we see. We have carried out a variety of activities this week to deepen our understanding. We have completed a reading comprehension about the eye and created some wonderful collages of our eyes. In our extended writing session we wrote chronological reports. We even have an opticians in our role play area!!!
