Healthy Living Week 2019

This half term, our focus has been on Healthy Living.

Did you know that there are lots of different ways to live a healthy lifestyle?

  • Be physically active every day
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Brush your teeth at least once a day
  • Visit a dentist regularly
  • Drink lots of water
  • Get at least 8 hours sleep a night
  • Look after your mental health and well-being

In school, we have been completing lots of different activities to help us to do this.

We kicked off the week Active Mission and Errol and had 3 minutes on each activity. It certainly got our hearts racing by the end!

Dr. Hobbs came into to do an assembly for us on how to live a healthy lifestyle too!

Our activity was with the St. John’s ambulance team and they taught us how to make an emergency phone call.

Mrs Murch taught us about PANTS and we had fun with Pantosaurus.

P – Privates are private

A – Always remember your body belongs to you

N – No means no!

T – Talk about secrets that upset you or make you feel uncomfortable

S – Speak up, someone can help.

If you would like more information about PANTS and the Underwear Rule from the NSPCC, click here.

We finished off the week with some yoga to relax and chill out.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to a brand new academic year! We are super excited for all of our new adventures and learning that is going to take place this year. Keep your eyes peeled to our class blog to find out what we get up to.

The tabs at the top of the page will keep you up to date with our half termly newsletters and homework.

Homework is given out on a Thursday and due back in on a Tuesday.

Reading records also need to be handed in to Miss Varley on a Tuesday. Please feel free to change your reading book as often as you wish.

PE days are FRIDAYS and we are learning how to play tag rugby with RuggerEds. Please bring an outdoor kit to school and you can leave this on your peg.

After school club with RuggerEds is open to Y2 as well on a Friday – see Miss Varley for more details.

TASC: Lifecycle of a Butterfly

In science, we have been busy learning about lifecycles and we enjoyed it so much that Miss Varley set us a task and we used TASC to help us to do this.

Task: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding about the life cycle of a butterfly.

Here is what we did:

We were so proud of each other for the work that we had completed that we invited Onyx class to come and have a look as we know that they have been learning about life cycles as well.

We even displayed our work in the classroom for our adults to see in a morning when they came into the classroom.

Y2 Class Assembly

Last week, it was our turn for the Y2 Class Assembly.

We told our audience lots about what we had been learning about in class, including Ramadan and Eid, the artist Kandinsky and our residential trip to Whirlow Hall Farm.

We would like to say thank you to all of our parents and carers who took the time to come and watch us. We really appreciate it!
