In PE this week, we have been learning all about different types of rolls in gymnastics.
We started off with a pencil roll and we had to make sure we kept our arms straight above our heads and keep our legs straight too as well as pointed toes.
We then tried a teddy bear roll where we had to sit in straddle position with our legs straight. We held on to the front of our knees and rolled onto the side of our shoulder onto our back.
After that, we tried an egg roll where we had to tuck our knees tight into our bodies. As we wrapped our hands around our knees we then rolled onto our backs.
Finally, we tried the hardest roll of all - the forwards roll. For this roll, it was really important that we kept our chin close to our chest so that we didn't put our weight onto our head.
We had so much fun learning the various types of rolls and next week we will be extending our learning further by linking sequences together.

During our Maths lessons this week, we have been looking at tens and ones in part whole models.
We have been practically partitioning numbers into tens and ones using a variety of concrete resources.
We then started to explore ways to partition 2 digit numbers into different combinations of tens and ones. Next week we will use our part whole models to record addition statements.

Year 2 spent the afternoon exploring primary and Secondary colours. Firstly, we identified the primary colours and looked for items around our classroom. After this, we looked at what primary colours we would need to mix in order to create secondary colours.
Before we began mixing our paints, we practised how to hold our paintbrush correctly.
We then used a colour wheel to paint on the primary colours. Once we achieved this, we then mixed together two primary colours in order to create a secondary colour.
We had lots of fun investigating the colours we could make out of mixing the primary colours together.
Miss Fortner and Miss Merrick then challenged us to make lighter/darker versions of the colours we had created and we will be looking at further into tones and shades next week!

Year 2 had a super afternoon (in the eventual sunshine!) hunting for living creatures and plants. They were also challenged to find objects that had never been alive and that were now dead.
