Minibeast Hunting

Today Year 2 had a fabulous time exploring our new forest schools area.  They hunted around to see what insects they could find and were delighted when they found worms, snails, lady birds, slugs and even the odd woodlouse.  We then made use of all the natural materials to create bug houses for any creepy crawlies looking for a new place to live.

WW1 Centenary for Kendal In Bloom

Year 2 have made a start on finding out about the vegetables that people were encouraged to grow during WW1.  While we are waiting for the seeds we have planted in the allotment to grow we are having a go at creating poppies.  This afternoon we had a go at crocheting poppies.  It turns out this is very tricky so we will have another go next week.  Thank you to Mrs Camilleri for being so patient with us.

3D Shapes

3D Shapes

In year 2 we have realised that we love learning about 3D shapes!  This week we have been learning quite alot.  We now know the names of lots of different shapes, that a cube only has squares on it and what the words faces, edges and vertices mean.

Boxes of Hope

Children receiving their boxes. Children opening their boxes.

A few weeks ago we put together a number of Boxes of Hope for children in Romania.  Today we found out that they have arrived.  It is great that at this time of Advent our children can think about those less fortunate than themselves.
