Year 2 Singing Festival
For the last month, Jays have been practising singing songs from around the world for our Singing Festival. Today, Burrington School joined us for a fun singing session - and we got to play some musical instruments. I was really impressed with the children's costumes too!
Jesus once told the story of the mustard seed:
The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches.
We had a visit from a storyteller who worked with each class to re-tell the story using drama. After, we made a painting inspired by the story.
Mad Science Day!
We had a super science afternoon today. First, we noticed some chemical changes when we mixed different chemicals together. Then we learned a new word - sublimation - which means a solid has turned into a gas. At the end, we had fun with dry ice!
Which is the deadliest place to explore.........?
Our project this term is to find out the most dangerous places on our planet....and beyond! Is it the cold, icy Polar regions? Is it deep at the bottom of the ocean? Jays class are going to find out!
To launch our project, we dressed up as explorers!
