Stick insects and 3D shapes

It has been so wonderful to have the children back in school this week and they have showed just how resilient they are by getting stuck straight into learning. This week we have enjoyed learning about animals and how they adapt to where they live – below are some photos of our camouflaged stick insects! The children really thought about the mix of colours they used, instead of one block colour. We have also been learning about 3D shapes and had a go at making some, using straws to help us to count the edges.

Making shapes

Year 2 have been busy learning about the properties of shapes. We saw so many wonderful photos from the children at home and here are some photos of the children at school creating shapes. They were being brilliant mathematicians by explaining how to count the sides.

We are so excited to welcome all of you back into school next week for lots of fun and learning and time with your friends and teachers!

Super Science in Early Years

We have really enjoyed our first two ‘super science’ assemblies exploring ways to make ice melt the quickest, and exploring properties of materials and how to make things ‘go’. The children showed real grit and determination to keep trying, even when they weren’t getting the results they wanted!
