Handling Data in P2
HOORAY... At last our BUTTERFLIES have arrived. The excitement in P2 has been priceless!!...
Spring has sprung....at last! Have you got your wellies ready P2? This term we plan to regularly venture into our eco garden to explore new life outdoors. We will be learning all about growth, life cycles and various minibeasts as well as their key features. We aim to visit the eco pond to observe the frog spawn and record their growth over the next few weeks. We will also become minibeast detectives, each completing a minibeast trail and recording our findings... busy busy bees!

Life Cycle of a Caterpillar

Our Rocket Balloon Experiment
This term we have been busy learning all about the planets, discussing what it would be like to live in outer space, to be an alien or an astronaut blasting into space. We also learned a lot about the first moon landing by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin which the children really enjoyed. Over the last few weeks we had a lot of fun reading and writing space poems and stories, painting space scenes, making rockets and playing imaginatively in our role play space centre. The topic generated a great deal of purposeful class discussions and helped the children formulate some fantastic questions which enhanced their understanding of the topic.
Massive congratulations to Ryan, Chloe, Gabbie and Katie - our little super star dancers in P2. Fantastic achievement everyone!
What more could we wish for 😁 in P2!
This term in P2 we have begun our new topic - Night and Day. We will be learning all about the solar system and how the earth spins on its axis. We hope to carry out lots of fun light experiments and predictions using torches and various materials.
Digraph Games - what a great way to develop the children's listening skills, as well as how to work and negotiate as part of a team.
