Your home learning this week is to look round your home for 3D objects!
Bright sunshine and lots for Year 2 to see at the seaside town of Whitstable, famous for its oysters! As the coach drove through the town we notices lots of differences and similarities with New Cross and Horton Kirby, such as a supermarket, wide roads, lots of traffic, houses that were close together. At the harbour, we expected to see the boats but were surprised to see the all the industry. Luckily, a kind stall-holder in the market explained how to open and clean an oyster. Some of us were tempted to try eating one, but we held back!
After that, we heard how the Lifeboats help to save lives.
Then we walked on through the harbour and found a pile of discarded shells, mostly oyster, but others too, including crab. As we looked out to sea, we noticed wind turbines and other interesting sights.
Finally we found our spot on the beach and settled down for lunch. Despite one of the coaches breaking down, a fabulous day for us all!
Your homework this week is to learn the year 2 summer concert song!
- Learn the words for Healthy Me!
- Practise singing the song with good diction, spitting out the ends of words. The red letters are the letters you should try to sing carefully.
- Practise singing the song for auditions for solo parts on Monday.
Our new topic began with an adventure right here in our very own school playground! Someone had left a map in our classroom, so we decided to follow the map to see if we could find treasure. Along the way we met different animals who asked us questions that were a little tricky to answer. At the end we found the treasure chest, but unfortunately Evil Pea had tricked us! He had taken the treasure, and we will only get it back if we return with the correct answers to all the questions.
