Year 2 Hedgehog

We have been doing lots of work on measuring.  The year two children in Hedgehog and Badger have been working on practical measuring outside in the playground.  We have also been estimating as well.

Badger, Squirrel and Hedgehog all enjoyed the outdoor maths learning. We did a maths trail in the junior playground. We timed ourselves doing lots of PE activities and we also measure leaves, including finding the area of a leaf.

We have been doing some exciting learning in maths.  Most of us can tell the time to the nearest quarter of an hour on an analogue clock.  We are also able to check our work by using the inverse of addition and subtraction and the inverse of multiplication and division.  But most exciting of all we had an outdoor maths learning afternoon.  

We made careful observational drawings of the fruit. Then we used the fruit to create pictures of faces. Our next step is to draw these fruit faces in pastel, pencil and paint.

For our topic on Rio and Carnivals we drew a variety of fruits, made masks and also made music.  We even made some of our own instruments after we had had a go with the percussion instruments in school.

Some of our amazing masks and art work based on fruits.

We had a great time when we all had a go at archery in the hall.  Some people were really good and were able to hit the targets every time.  It was a bit tricky but great fun and we all learnt a new skill.  Bradley got a certificate for his great archery skills.  We all really liked the game we played at the end and everyone worked well in their teams.

In the week beginning Monday 8th February the whole school took part in the big bird watch.  Mr Hibbert organised the event and needless to say Hedgehog Class were very keen to take part.  We already knew how to use the binoculars as we had used them on our night time experience.  Fortunately, the weather was good so it was good for spotting birds.  However, with lots of children outside the birds were a bit shy!  We did, however, spot some gulls.  See if you can do some bird spotting at home during the half term holiday.

We wore some amazing costumes for our space day.  We had astronauts as well as aliens.  Some children even came in dressed as planets and the solar system.  A big thank you to all of the parents who ensured that their children were in such amazing costumes.

Here we are all dressed up - even the staff! We are just all out of this world!

We have some pictures of our night time experience.  Although it was very wet we had a wonderful time.  The clouds did mean we didn't see any stars, but Mr Madgett told us where we needed to be looking.

Some of our space learning.  We have had lessons from Tim Peake this week, from space, and from Mr Madgett who is a computer scientist but who also has a real interest in astronomy.
Mr Madgett (Luke's Daddy) came into school and gave us a talk about what we could see in space.  We had a look through the telescope and found out about some of the constellations and planets.  We are going to be having a 'Night Time Experience', with star gazing, on Friday 5th February.  We hope the sky is clear and it does not rain! 

Learning about the sky at night. We hope it is going to be clear for our star gazing night!

This term we have been doing lots of learning on space for our topic Moon Zoom!  We have made a range of space models at home and we have them all on display in the KS1 street area.

We also have some new space toys which we can play with and learn from.  The rockets have need lots of power and energy to be able to go into space and escape the Earth's gravity.

Welcome to Hedgehog Class.  We have been doing lots and lots this term and here are some pictures of some of the activities we have been up to.

In our science we have been learning about materials. We have used clay to model and have learnt how clay changes and becomes hard when it is left to dry.
