This week in 2P, we have been learning about the ‘Man on the Moon’. It is about a man called Bob who is in charge of cleaning the moon and has to entertain the tourists who come to visit.
On Thursday we re-read the book and had to talk to our partners about everything we remembered from the story. Then we drew small pictures to help us remember and created the story map from these pictures. We found a different partner and told our story based on the pictures we had drawn. Jensen worked with Tommy and they both remembered parts of the story to put into their maps. Caleb liked that we could create the book again through our story maps.
Below are some pictures of the class sharing their story maps with their partners.
This week in Year 2 we have started a science experiment about growing runner beans. We are growing 3 beans in our classroom. One of the beans is in water and in the daylight. Another bean is in the daylight but has no water in the cup. The last bean has water but it is in the dark. On Wednesday, we made predictions about how we think the beans will grow. Leah thought the bean with the water in the light will grow the best because the bean need’s water to grow. Poppy thought the bean in the dark with water will grow because it has water to help it grow.
These pictures below show our beans as we begin our experiment.
We will observe the growth of the bean next Wednesday in our science lesson.
Cup 1 (left) has water and is in light.
Cup 2 (right) has light but does not have water.
Cup 3 has water but does not have any light.
On Wednesday 10th January, our School Council visited the Mayor of Havering, Councillor Van den Hende at the Town Hall. They sat in the Council Chamber and asked lots of questions about the role of Mayor and the way in which Havering Council operates. Then they had refreshments in the Mayor’s Parlour and had the opportunity to either try on the Mayor’s robes or carry her ceremonial Mace.
As part of our end of term assembly, some Year 2 pupils acted out the Russian folk story of Babushka.
