We have grown our own potatoes and beans this year. We harvested our beans and potatoes and decided that it would be lovely to cook some recipes with the beans and potatoes we had grown. Mrs Greenwood found some recipes for bean pesto and potato curry. We helped to prepare and cook these recipes and invited our parents into school to try them. They were delicious!
8 children from our class were invited to attend a festival competing against other Year 2 teams from local schools. We had to compete in lots of different events such as hockey, golf, jumping, running, throwing, frisby, rugby and football. We worked really well as a team and were very pleased to win 2nd place. Mrs Smith was really proud of us!
Mrs Garside visited our class to talk to us about seaside holidays in the past. We all dressed up in old fashioned clothes and she brought lots of interesting objects for us to look at. We learned about the different things that people enjoyed doing at the seaside in the past. We also had the opportunity to play with lots of old fashioned toys and to watch a Punch and Judy show. It was really interesting and fun morning!
We designed, constructed and painted our own model steam trains. Here are some photographs of our finished trains.
Mr Scott set up a dig in the school grounds. We were invited to the dig and used lots of tools to carefully remove layers of soil. We discovered clay and small pieces of pottery.
We all enjoyed performing a play about Ancient Egypt for our class assembly. Everyone had an important part in the assembly and we all had costumes to wear. We sang songs and performed a dance together at the end. Mrs Smith and Mrs Mitchell were really proud of our performances!
We had a wonderful time visiting the railway. We travelled from Keighley to Oxenhope on a fantastic steam train. At Oxenhope we were very lucky to be able to visit engine and climb into the cabin in small groups. The guides explained the different parts of the engine and the different jobs they do. It was very hot and steamy!
In the afternoon we visited Bingley. We split into groups and completed lots of activities. During the first activity we visited the Kennet boat. On the boat we learned about how locks work and the history of the canal. We also learned about what life was like for people working on the canal and we were able to see their living conditions on the boat.
The second activity was a lock side walk. We were told how locks work and had the opportunity to see a boat travelling through the lock. It was really interesting!
The third activity was a nature walk around the canal and The North Blog.
The Dogs Trust visited our class. Our visitor talked to us about how to look after pets, animal care and safety around dogs. We really enjoyed meeting Oscar the dog. He was very well behaved.
In D.T work we have been busy designing and constructing our own model steam trains. Here are some photographs of us at work.
