Year 2 summer adventures
Year 2 have had a busy couple of weeks learning from first hand experiences out and about. Firstly we visited the dental surgery in Henley to learn about caring for our teeth. Most of the children had a turn sitting in the dentist’s chair, whereupon their teeth were checked. We gathered all the information we found out and have created some posters that are going to be displayed in school and at the dentist.
Last week we went to Long Wittenham with Year 1 to the Earth Trust. What a great day in the fresh air, learning about Food and Farming! Amongst many things we learnt how to milk a cow, how to make muesli, how to make butter and what sheep’s wool is used for. Our afternoon was spent appreciating the view of the River Thames and the landscape of Oxfordshire.
On Tuesday 4th July we spent the day in the locality of our wonderful town of Henley on Thames. To begin with we revisited the allotments to investigate the changes from the last time we visited in April. Wow! So many berries, beetroot, beans, artichokes and potatoes. From the allotment we shopped in Tesco for our class Food Festival, to bring together a lot of what we have learnt this term. Then it was our regular Acacia Lodge visit to see our dear friends who love the children so much. The children were treated to games, a teddy bear hunt and a picnic to take away. The residents were treated to teddy biscuits we made and stories written and read by the children. So much fun!
