## Spring 2- Week 2

Stars of the Week: Annabelle and Reggie

We have enjoyed a varied week in Class 2. We spent some time practicing making food chains in a great game on the laptops during our Science lesson. Ask us to name an example of a producer and a consumer!

In PE we have been working on our racket skills and had to balance a tennis ball on a racket while moving around. It was tricky but we are definitely improving.

We also had a visit from the London Fire Brigade who taught us many important lessons about how to stay safe in a fire. We are going to remind our grown ups to check their smoke alarms once a month and ask them about creating a fire plan for our homes.

## Spring 2- Week 1

Stars of the Week: Ari and Astrid

We have had a lovely start to our half term this week, it feels like Spring is in the air! Class 2 used their skills to programme beebots to travel round an obstacle course. We have started our new maths topic of shape and enjoyed going on a 3D shape hunt around our classroom, as well as finding out the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We can’t wait for all the new, exciting things we are going to learn this half term!

Here are some photos of us programming our beebots. Well done Class 2!
