Welcome to our new page! We are the Exceptional Elephants, also known as Class 5.We decided to call ourselves the Exceptional Elephants because during transition week we really enjoyed reading Elmer the Elephant and it reminded us that we're all fantastically unique! (Just like Elmer)
Our teacher this year is Miss Millard, and we are very lucky to have Miss Hill and Mrs Price with us too.
Keep checking our page for regular updates on all the exciting things we've been doing!
Happy new year and welcome back to school! This term our topic is 'Here, There and Everywhere'. In this half term, we are going to be looking at Cudworth and then finding out more about the United Kingdom. We are also going to be locating other counties in Europe and particularly France. If you have ever been to France or have relatives with photos of famous landmarks, please do bring them in!
Don't forget tomorrow (Tuesday 7th November), is our Year 2 sharing assembly. We hope to see you there!
This week, we have been working towards making our own healthy vegetable soup. At the start of the week, we tasted and evaluated different tinned soups. This gave us ideas of ingredients we wanted to use in our own soup including potatoes, lentils and onions. We developed cutting and peeling techniques to prepare the vegetables for our soup. On Friday, we then had the chance to taste the soup we'd made. It was very tasty!
This week, The Elephants have been learning to apply paint using printing techniques. We have used a wide range of vegetables that we cut first to create the correct shapes for our farmyard pictures. Take a look at us in action!
On Friday 22nd September, Year 2 visited Cannon Hall Farm to find out more about farming. In the morning,we had a guided tour of the farm and we met loads of different animals including the pigs, cows and sheep! We even got to stroke Peanut the guinea pig as well as a huge rabbit! Just before lunch, we had a tractor ride around the farm. It was so much fun singing Big Red Combine Harvester during the journey! After lunch, we went to the Reptile House and got to see up close reptiles such as lizards. We also explored Cannon Hall's huge adventure playground before going back to school. What an amazing day we had at the farm! Here's some of the photographs taken during our visit.
