This half term in Year 2 we have completed the ‘Explorer Challenge’ To do this, we needed to complete a series of challenges. For each challenge we were awarded 1,2, or 3 points based on our effort. This determined what award we received at the end of the challenge.
Some of the activities we have completed included:
On the 1st of October 2015 1C and 1D went on a half an hour walk around the school. On the way they sketched a church and they had a choice of which building they wanted to sketch next. After that they saw a postman which they shouted at because there is a character called the jolly postman that they have been learning about from a book. Also he mucked up their mail. So they said “You jolly old postman you mixed up our mail!” Last but not least they had a list of things to spot. One thing was a house that was as old as our school.
On Friday, FS went to the field for the very first time. They had a coach from Chineham rugby club and learnt rugby skills for the first time. They really enjoyed it and found it very interesting to learn these different rugby skills.
A lady called Gemma came to FS last week to do drama with us. We pretended we were going on a journey to the jungle. We had to pack our bags with all the things we would need, such as water, food, binoculars, a rope and a net. Then we adventured in the jungle and saw lots of different animals which we pretended to be. We were Slippery Snakes, Jogging Giraffes, Lazy Lions, Terrifying Tigers and Monstrous Monkeys.
