This 3rd term lessons we are working on Corporal Expression activities. Today they were trying basic steps from very different types of dance: classical and modern dances. For classical, we watched a video doing “pirouettes” and students were doing pretty well. For modern dance, we watched a feet dance (Shuffle) were students tried the “Running Man step” and a hand dance (Tecktonik) were students could dance with their arms and hands. Great time!
Year 2 were super excited on Friday 3rd May due to our old classmate Sander Holtzer returning to spend the day at Escaan. Sander was a popular member of Year 2 and the children were upset when he left. Not a day has gone past without someone mentioning his name in class. Year 2 made him a card and presented it to him in assembly. Thanks for the visit Sander, we will always remember the fun we had in year 2 together!
TY and Year 2 were spoilt for choice at the book fair on Friday! Everyone had fun looking at the books and sharing their choices with everyone when we returned to class.
After learning about the forces of push, pull and twist in science, Year 2 explored patio to see where these forces are used. Within minutes of exploring they noticed that they were absolutely surrounded by objects where these forces are applied!
We PUSHED the door closed, button for water, friends down the slide and playground equipment to move it.
We PULLED the door open and our bodies up different play equipment.
We TWISTED the door handle to open it and play equipment to spin.
Year 2 began their new Science topic, Forces and Movement. The children enjoyed playing with toys and exploring forces of pushing , pulling and twisting. We ended the lesson with a car race! The boys won!
Year 2 have been learning about instructions in Literacy. We had great fun following the instructions to make a banana split and even better fun tasting it!
Noor and Alberto were very happy because they had received a certificate for their hard work in assembly that morning! Keep up the hard work year 2!
Year 2 have been working on their science topic ´forces and movement´. We discussed ramps, hills, roads etc and talked about what happens to vehicles and people when they go up or down hill. We talked about the steepness of ramps and predicted what would happen if we changed the gradient. We then went outside and discussed the speed we went down the slide, what we could do to go faster and how we could add friction to go slower down the slide. We had a great time flying down the slide!
Year 2 have been recreating and designing their own Miro pictures. We painted on the bright blocks of bold color first and then added the black lines in with oil pastel once the paint was dry. Don´t they look great!
Year 2 had lots of fun last week at cosmocaixa! We got a chance to look at and touch all of the things in the exhibition, we explored the jungle and aquarium and we were amazed by the dinosaur exhibition. We had a really great day!
Year 2 have been working on understanding symmetry and applying their knowledge to active maths problems. They have been working individually, in pairs and in groups to create symmetrical patters with peg boards, uni fox and whiteboards. They have been working very hard, well done Year 2!
