Year 2 have had a fun-filled but busy last week before the Easter holidays. In Design Technology, they designed their own pouches for the purpose of collecting minibeasts. They each came up with four potential designs but had to settle on their favourite later in the week when the time came to make them. The children used a template to draw the outline onto felt then cut out their pieces. They also used scraps of material to add some interesting designs onto the pouches. The children tried really hard to stitch the pieces together even though it was sometimes difficult to push the needle through the felt. Nevertheless, everyone persevered and this resulted in some wonderful pouches which can be seen below.
On Wednesday, both classes came together for their final PE lesson to take part in a target game circuit. There were three stations, each with different levels of challenge. At the first station, children had to try to throw a bean-bag into one of three hoops, all of which were placed at different distances from the cone. Many children managed to score 3 points by successfully getting the bean-bag to land in the furthest hoop. At the second station, children had to test their archery skills to try and score as many points as possible. At the third and final station, the children had to try to bounce tennis balls into a hoop without it bouncing out. This proved to be quite tricky but the children quickly realised that they had to be gentle and throw the ball lightly in order for it to stay in the hoop. All the children enjoyed putting their target game skills to the test!
Finally, a big congratulations to the three children in each class who achieved the most points in Class Dojo! Also, we want to highly commend all the children in Year 2 who have not missed a single day of school this term. Well done for having perfect, 100% attendance!
