Today we had a fantastic morning tasting the different fruit from Handa’s surprise. We tried pineapple, mango, banana, avocado, tangerine and passion fruit. Here are some of the pictures of us trying the fruit!
Well done Beech class, you were brave trying the fruit and came up with some wonderful descriptions in English and made some great pictograms showing your favourite fruit in maths!
Here are some links to help with Year 2 SATs revision over the holidays.

Beech class had a fantastic time at Birdland! Despite the weather the children were all beautifully behaved, cheerful and enthusiastic throughout the day. They were a delight to take on the trip.
In literacy we are looking at fantasy stories. On Friday we will be designing and describing our own fantasy story settings using this website.
On Friday afternoon Beech class worked in groups to design and make some fantastic dinosaur traps to catch our dinosaur once and for all! We baited our traps with food (mainly fish) and put inside the traps everything a dinosaur would need to survive. We then left the traps over the weekend to see if we could catch our mischievous dinosaur.
On Saturday Miss Hancox checked the traps and there was no change. However, on Sunday she came into the classroom to find quite a surprise…

Last week we arrived in school to find a huge mess in our classroom!
Footprints lead all the way through the classroom to the dinosaur’s nest. Tissues and fruit were spread across the carpet.
This video was taken by Miss Hancox just before the children came in that morning. See if you can hear the strange sound…
Watch our dinosaur video here.
Welcome back to school Beech Class, I hope you all had a lovely break.
Our topic for this term is… dinosaurs! Have a go at some of these fantastic dinosaur games to support your learning.
