What a super Forest Friday we have had this afternoon! We all changed into our wellies and went outside to explore the changing seasons (Science). We had to find different types of berries and then find one that we could squash and eat. Just look at our purple tongues! We are going to use some of the blackberries and apples that we picked from our school grounds to make 'Gruffalo crumble' next week - yummy!
Tim and Tom are really important characters at Barugh Green Primary School and in Year 2 it is really important that we all help each other and work together as a team - Mrs Harding's heroes! We worked in pairs for our science work this week. Well done Year Two!
Can you remember those blackberries we picked? Well, we used them all to make Gruffalo crumble. We all had a turn but the best bit was the tasting at the end! Nearly everyone thought it was "yummy"!
Look at 'Our tree'. Over the year we will be observing our tree for changes as the seasons pass. As it is nearly Autumn we found lots of sycamore keys and had fun spinning and chasing them. See if you can see other signs of Autumn.

Guess who lives in Gruffalo woods? Can you find any characters?
Looking for signs of Autumn. Look at our Autumn treasures.
Year 2 had a wonderfully creative time at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. An artist met us and we looked at some of the different sculptures around the park, their materials and what they made us think of. Can you see any sculptures by Barbara Hepworth? She is an artist that we are learning about. All the children want to go back and explore even more!
Children In Need day - we did a Pudsey Bear hunt in our woods and had fun with everyone outside, raising money for Pudsey to give to children not as lucky as us.
Winter has arrived, we found some frosty leaves and long shadows!
Look at the fun we had making our Christmas crafts, reindeer food, meeting Santa and celebrating together.
Here we are making clay robins, come and see the finished product in the classroom now they are painted and varnished. We will be taking part in the R.S.P.B. Big Bird Watch soon.
Our Muticultural Day - South Africa was our country and we really had a super day learning songs, more about the people, where the country is in the world within the continent of Africa and making the flag. We also were fascinated to learn about the life of Nelson Mandela.
We met a real life time traveller today - Florence Nightingale! She came to tell us all about her amazing life and how she changed Nursing. Please ask your child to tell you some of the fascinating facts that Florence told us.
Just look at all the fun we had when it snowed! Keep watching and you might see African drumming and hot chocolate making too!
Also, can you see how much water makes a cupful of snow?
Wheels Day was SO much fun!
Tommy the tortoise came to visit as we are learning about Hot places and then we had an exciting day when some Super Scientists came to teach us about electricity and circuits!
We all had a wonderful day on our trip to Old Moor, RSPB. We identified lots of different plant and pond creatures. We learnt about different habitats for a variety of animals, food chains (right before our eyes!) and had lots of outdoor fun! All the children would love to go back in the Summer holidays because there was so much more to see and do!
