P2 Mr J McRoberts

P2 have been busy learning about Chinese New Year, how it is celebrated and customs associated with this celebration. On Wednesday 7th February, P2 held a parent's assembly where children read out facts about the Chinese New Year and performed 4 songs - Chinese Dragon, Dragon Dance, Paper Lanterns and It's a New Year. The children also worked hard in the Creative Area at playtime to create their own Chinese New Year crafts such as creating Chinese fans, lanterns and all 12 Zodiac animals. As it was the Year of the Dragon, a 7ft Dragon was created  by the kids in the weeks leading up to assembly. P2 were keen to host this assembly before the official Chinese New Year date, on Saturday 10th February. Parents were also provided the chance to participate in the Chinese tradition of hanging a wish for their child on the wishing tree.
Our Autumn Walk 
P2 enjoyed an Autumn walk around our school. We found loads of different signs of Autumn, we seen all of the Autumn colours and then we used natural materials to create some Autumn homes for the animals that live around our school.
Our topic this term is 'Wheels, Wings and Other Things.' We have been learning about different types of travel and transport. We have spent some time learning about different types of vehicles through our play and from our reading. We even got to see some of these vehicles for real !!
