We were blessed with absolutely beautiful autumnal weather last week for our English lesson at Manor Barn. Year 2 walked across the footbridge (waving at the cars as we went) to the stunning gardens. We were thinking autumnal thoughts and collecting nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs for the children’s poems about Autumn. The children were impeccably well behaved and worked really hard for the hour we were out and came back to school brimming with ideas for their poems. We hope that you enjoy reading our poems as much as we enjoyed writing them!
Yesterday, Year 2 learned about Stop Motion Animation and spent their computer science lesson using the Animate IT app to create short video clips. They then imported their work into iMovie and added sounds to create a short movie. The children really enjoyed experimenting with the apps and developed a good understanding of stop motion animation.
Yesterday afternoon, in Geography the children completed a treasure hunt around the school grounds. It was with great excitement that the children used the grid references and bird’s eye view of the school to locate and solve the clues. When the children had discovered the hidden word, they received the final clue that enabled them to work together to use the map to locate the treasure. Year 2 applied their geographical knowledge excellently and took a lot of exercise at the same time!
