A Visit from the Dog’s Trust

Today we met the beautiful Winnie, a friendly education dog from The Dog’s Trust! LJ, her human, told us all about the work of the trust and talked about how we should care for our dogs.

We learned about healthy food for dogs to eat and things that are poisonous to dogs; we looked at some gruesome roundworms, some ticks and some fleas and discovered ways to protect our canine friends from these pests; we looked at a microchip and even practiced picking up a pretend dog poo in a poo bag!

We also talked about what to do if we encounter an unknown dog when we are in the park or out and about and how to stay safe. At the end of the session we got the chance to give Winnie a stroke (after introducing ourselves with a hand sniff of course) and everyone has had a leaflet to take home to share with their families.

Suffix or prefix?

Today all the children have been looking at either adding prefixes or suffixes to words and how they can then change the meaning completely. Here are a few of the children enjoying a game of Syl-a-bif-i-ca-tionIMG_0081 IMG_0082 IMG_0083 IMG_0084

Chocolate rocks

To help the children understand how the three different rock types are formed, we had a go at making our own chocolate rocks. This helped the children to see how the different layers are formed and how each rock type is different. IMG_0061 IMG_0062 IMG_0063

Money, money, money

This week the children have been looking at counting money and how to give change. Today, the children had their own fruit and veg stall where they had to give the customers the correct change. IMG_0068 IMG_0069 IMG_0072

Deep into the dark, gloomy forest…

The chidren have been looking at how they can make their writing more exciting with the use of expanded noun phrases. They were given pictures to think about what they might hear, smell, taste, feel and see if they were in that place. This then helped with setting descriptions when the children cam to creating their own magical place.

Roll up roll up 50% off!

As part of our Stone Age topic, children in year 2/3 are going to create their own advert for a stone age tool. They will be working in pairs and recording an advert thinking about how the tools used in the stone age were so effective.IMG_0033 IMG_0034

Gymnastics

This term the children in Year 2 and 3 will be taught gymnastics during PE. Mrs Greenwood and myself are working together to teach the children how to jump for different hIMG_0030 IMG_0031eights safely and correctly. The children will then continue to use this skill to put together a small group performance.

Rock Investigation

This morning the children had a chance to explore the different types of rocks that we have at school. They began to look at the properties of different rocks and started to understand the vocabulary used when describing rocks, such as permeable and non permeable. IMG_0019 IMG_0020 IMG_0022 IMG_0024

Sit down on that bench!

Sit down! Get up off the bench! Walk down the stairs. Today in class the year 2’s were allowed to be very bossy for the day. They spent the morning looking at different sentence types and how to use commands. IMG_0111 IMG_0112 IMG_0115 IMG_0118 IMG_0122 IMG_0126

Human number line!

This week in class we have been ordering and comparing 3 and 4 digit numbers. I kindly asked for volunteers to come up and take part in my human number line!IMG_0130
