Year 2 have started the Autumn term with a British Geography topic called “Camping Out".
We had great fun building dens in the trees around the playground. We had to solve lots of problems like how to make our dens stand up by using just string pegs, poles and pop up tents. We also had to work in a group, share ideas and listen to each other.
As part of this topic we have also been designing and making a campsite. We cut and folded card to make tents. We tried several different templates to find the best one. Then we used a collage to make a campsite with a river, trees and campfire.
We have been going swimming every Wednesday and it is fantastic to see the huge progress that many of the children have already made with their swimming.
We have been learning to do Karate with Matt, a very experienced Martial Arts instructor; this is quite a challenge for us! We are learning how to keep still and focused, trying some meditation and also learning to do the tiger and snake moves.
