Continuing on our theme of Percy, the children became their own park keeper. We started off with a walk around the school to find areas of the school ground which could be improved on. We came up with the mound, the outdoor classroom, under the trees and the field. The children first designed their new and improved area, we had ideas of a tree house, trampoline park, a slide and zip wire! From this, the children wrote some persuasive letters to Mrs Hinstridge about the new changes.
In music, we have been looking at percussion instruments: the symbol, tambourine, rain shaker and wooden blocks. The children created a soundscape of a storm using these. It was very loud! We worked together to create a class soundscape.
In maths, the children have been recording time using a stop watch. We used our learning power of collaboration to work together to think of activities to time. We timed 10 star jumps, running to the fence and back, taking our shoes and socks off and running around the trees! Did you know your children can take their shoes and socks off in 18 seconds!
We would like to say how proud we are of all the children and how much they have achieved over the year. We wish them all the best of luck for Year 2. We would also like to say thank you all so much in supporting us and the children over the year.
We wish you all a safe and happy summer holiday.
