  Merry Christmas from Year 2!πŸŽ…πŸŽ„
Christmas themed fun! Santa was too busy to visit this year but he had time to video call us which was very exciting.πŸŽ…πŸ» We loved our yummy Christmas dinner and enjoyed dancing and playing lots of games at our Christmas party! πŸ½

πŸŽπŸŠπŸ‹ Fruit Kebabs  πŸŒπŸ‰πŸ“


Our DT unit this half term was Fruit Kebabs. We planned, designed, made and then evaluated our Kebabs! 

Healthy Humans! In Science we have been exploring what a healthy and balanced diet is. We learnt about the different food groups, the benefits of each food group and how much of each food group we should consume to achieve a balanced diet. We created our own eat well plates and designed our own well balanced lunch boxes πŸŽπŸŒπŸ‡πŸ“πŸ₯•πŸžπŸ§€πŸ³πŸ—πŸ°

We are super bakers in Year 2! πŸ‘¨β€πŸ³ πŸ‘©β€πŸ³ In literacy we have been learning about instruction texts - so we made our own blueberry muffin and then we are going to write our own set of instructions!

After eating so much chocolate in Autumn One.. we are focusing on healthy eating in Autumn Two. We have explored the artist Arcimboldo who uses images of fruits and vegetables to create his pieces of art. We recreated his art work using real fruits and vegetables... Look how amazing they are!

We have been developing our ICT skills this half term. πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’» πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’» We can now create a PowerPoint, copy and paste images and change the size and colour of the text.

In our Drama sessions with Miss Dabbs we have been thinking about how we can change our body and facial expressions to show different emotions. Can you guess which emotions we are showing here?

Messages in a bottle.... Today we pretended we were stuck on a desert island. We wrote a letter asking for things that we thought we needed to survive. We then discussed the basic human needs and classified the things on our list into 'needs' and 'wants'

Children in Need! This year for St Augustine's it was all about Kindness! We brainstormed different acts of kindness we could do throughout the day and then made sure we completed them!

You won’t believe what happened in Year 2! An Oompa Loompa brought us a special package and letter from Mr Willy Wonka. He sent us lots of chocolates to review - ready for designing our own chocolate bar 🍫 we were so so excited!

We enjoyed tasting the yummy chocolate Willy Wonka sent us! We used this as product research - gathering ideas for our chocolate bars we are going to design and create!

Here are some of our chocolate bars! We planned, created and evaluated our products. Now we are going to send our designs to Mr Willy Wonka!

Look at all the wonderful, colourful art work we have produced this half term! We learnt all about primary and secondary colours, and studied the art work of Piet Mondrian and Andy Warhol! πŸ’› πŸ’™ πŸ’—

We are becoming fantastic scientists in Year 2! πŸ”¬πŸ“ so far we have been exploring different materials to see if they are absorbent or repel water. We discovered that paper was the most absorbent material, so then we tested different types of paper to see which was the most absorbent. πŸ“ƒπŸŒŠ

We are taking part in a virtual Athletics tournament with our PE coach Denise! So far we have competed in the long jump, chest past and speed jump! πŸƒ

The last day of this half term was a VERY fun one! We designed and created a sweet and chocolate room 🍭 🍬 - just like from the film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

The we had a cinema afternoon with some yummy chocolate milk πŸ₯›πŸ«
