Busy Bees in Year 2!
Friday 12th July | 1 comment
We have had a very busy week in Year 2, taking part in Sports’ Day, a skip-a-thon and having a visit from our beekeepers.
On Wednesday the children had a fantastic time at Sports’ Day. They worked well as a team and enjoyed all the activities, cheering each other on and trying their best. Thank you for coming along to support them.
In the afternoon, we enjoyed some more informal activities, making up obstacle courses and playing with the different PE equipment. We had a well deserved rest and an ice pop!
On Thursday we had a visit from Mrs Gilhooley and Mrs Laurie, Farfield’s beekeepers. They were amazed by what the children already knew! The children listened well and asked and answered questions brilliantly. A massive thank you to them for coming in and speaking to the children; it was absolutely fascinating!
We have written a number of new chapters in our bee books this week including how bees make honey and a recount of the bee talk. We will be finishing these next week.
This morning the children got to show off their skipping skills in individual, pair and class skipping events. The children have progressed so much this year in skipping; some children weren’t able to skip at all at the start of the year and now everybody is able to do some skipping. We had a go at some new skips that even the teachers found tricky! Well done to everyone in Year 2! Please can you bring in any sponsor forms and money next week.
