Welcome to Class 2!
We had a fantastic time on our trip to the Rising Sun Country Park. We began our day with pond dipping and found some interesting creatures. We then made some of the creatures we found using nature art. After lunch we went down into the quarry and collected some minibeasts. Finally we made our own micro habitats and released our minibeasts into their new homes.
Please can all library books be brought back ASAP.
On Friday we talked about Luna New Year. We found out that the celebrations begin this Sunday (22.01.23) and that they last for 15 days. We watched some videos of the celebrations from last year in Newcastle's China Town, we loved the dragon. We also found out that this year is the year of the Rabbit and so created some art work inspired by this. We used a stippling technique with the paint to leave behind a silhouette of a rabbit.
We have had a fantastic first week together in Year 2! The children have blown me away with their amazing attitude to learning and determination to succeed. Here are a few pictures of our very busy week.
