Monday 5th September 2016 - Welcome back!

Welcome back to school and to Year 2!

We had a wet start to our term in more ways than one today as we were greeted this morning by drizzly weather as we walked in and then began our Love Every Drop! topic with a carousel of water activities throughout the day.  Here are some of our activities.


We made a boat to carry the animals across the water.

We fished for the days of the week and months of the year, putting them into the correct order.

We explored ways to find out which containers held the most and the least amounts of liquid.

We investigated how many 1p coins it took to sink a pot and then thought about what other coins we could use to have an equal amount of money.

In the process we also created many puddles which we thoroughly enjoyed mopping up afterwards!

Other Stuff

What a wonderful trip to Morrisons we had on Thursday morning!

We tried several Italian foods such as fresh Ciabatta with olive oil and fresh basil leaves, various cold pastas, Italian meats and cheeses including a blue cheese.

We tried Italian olives and Greek olives to compare them to.

The butchery department talked the children through the process of making minced beef, used for bolognaise and demonstrated making fresh burgers too.

Our children were also luckily enough to look at and touch various fresh fish including a squid!  We have since tasted some cooked octopus in school which got very mixed reviews!

In school we learnt about how olive oil is made and we visited the oils aisle to look at the various choices on offer.

Morrisons provided cookies and a drink each in the café to conclude our visit which the children (and adults) really enjoyed.
