Year 2 enjoyed lots of wonderful learning activities this week. Some of highlights: World Book Day, Saracens Rugby and Affinity Water school trip. There were plenty of colourful characters in class on Monday from Little Red Riding Hood to Matilda as well as Where’s Wally and Hairy McClary. Even David Attenborough made an appearance. It was a wonderful celebration of books! In English we started reading The Tunnel by Anthony Browne and we will be using this story as inspiration for our next big story write! Watch this space!
The children really enjoyed their rugby session with Saracens Rugby and everyone worked together in a variety of team building exercises.
To end the week we visited Affinity Water, where we learnt about both pond creatures and minibeasts and how these creatures have adapted to their habitats. We also looked at some basic food chains and gained an appreciation of how all living things in our local ecosystem are connected.
