ELM - Y2
Happy Easter from Elm Class
Our Spring inspired daffodil canvas art work.
Red Nose Day
We enjoyed sharing our jokes throughout Red Nose Day and hearing new ones!
Elm Class’ Science Week
We participated in the Science Farm Live STEM lesson on Future farming Robots. We found out about different types of soil and what autonomous machines were. By doing some precision weeding we were able to design a machine to weed a field.
We had fun with the Dyson science challenges and found out that yes raisins can dance! We also explored how ping pong balls can float in the air but unfortunately our floating paper clip investigation didn’t work!
Our second Science Farm Live STEM lesson asked the question ‘Which came first the chicken or the egg?’ We saw some chicks being born and then learnt how to tell the difference between boy and girl chickens.
We finished our Science week by designing our own Robo-bug. We thought about the amazing features that insects have and how we could use them to solve challenges eg. how to rescue someone or give someone medicine.
Wonderful Work - Lockdown Learning!
As part of the Christmas crafts funded by BEDSA, Elm class created these colourful reindeer by using decoupage
Elm class have enjoyed their lacrosse lessons, learning how to control, pass and score with the ball.
Hand Of Kindness
We have created our own heart of kindness since returning to school. We have also been practising Mindfulness every day, exploring different breathing techniques. We have found it makes us feel: calm, happy, relaxed and like we are at home!
Here We Are
We are using the book ‘Here we are’ by Oliver Jeffers for all our work this term. We painted pictures of what Earth looks like to us using watercolours along with writing guides about Earth for any visitors to our planet to read!
We enjoyed a forest school morning as part of finding out about our outside school environment. We explored, discovered and created lots of different things which helped us to understand the world we live in and the world around us.
