Healthy bodies in P2

“We were cutting out healthy foods and we had to colour them in before we stuck them on a paper plate. Before we were sticking them on the plates we had to colour them in the right colours. Healthy food included fruit, sandwich, cheese, raisins, a bowl of fruit and chicken. Unhealthy food included a gingerbread men, chocolate, crisps and chips.” (Aryanna, Kayla, Alexis, Beth and Rory)

“In science we were learning about germs. You have to wash your hands before lunch because if you don’t you will get germs on your food. Those germs go into your stomach. When they go into your blood, the white blood cells fight the germs. Then we got some glitter and some hand cream and some of us put it on our hands and we were pretending it was germs.” (Riley, Michael and Georgia).


“We were learning about the body. We pretended that the jar and some water and marshmallows, rice and other things were parts of the blood. There are white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. The white blood cells fight the germs. The red blood cells carry oxygen. The platelets stop the bleeding.” (Beth, Járed, Abby W and Abi J).

We will be focusing on multiplication again next week in maths. Looking forward to seeing you all at parents nights next week. We will be taking a closer look at non-fiction books, looking at their contents and index pages to help us find information. We will also be learning more about the senses.

Happy Red Nose Day

“During reading we had stations and one of them was writing ‘oa’ words. We were looking in our reading books for verbs”. (Bryce and Beth).

“We were learning about the colour of other people’s eyes. We were putting them on a sheet to see how much we had. It was a bar graph. We were looking at the colour of eyes of the people in our classroom. The colours were green, blue and brown. The number of blue eyes was the biggest. The number of people with green eyes was the lowest.” (Abby W, Rory, Járed, Michael, Logan, Georgia and Beth).

“We were taking a picture of us being dressed up and wearing red noses.” (Liam)

“We were making our own lungs. We had to get two straws and we had to get two bags and stick them together to make lungs”. (Lena)

“We learned that the left side of the brain controls the right side of your body and the right side of the brain controls the left side of your body. We learned that there was different parts of the brain for doing different things. The brain is split into two sides. There’s four important things in the brain, like the cerebellum and the cerebrum and the brain stem.” (Riley, Alexis, Abi, Kayla and Georgia)

Next week we will be learning about multiplying and dividing and our sound will be ‘ew’.

World Book Day 2019

Some pictures from our week.

We were learning about the heart and digestion. We recreated the functions of the teeth, saliva, the stomach and the small and large intestines.

We had a tea party, where we applied our knowledge of fractions to equally share pancakes and slices of bread between 4 friends.

Megan and Joseph presented our Show and Tell this week.

We were looking for nouns in our reading books.

And our sound of the week was ‘aw’.

Our costumes for World Book Day

Natsumi and Amber shared fantastic book blessings

And we received a lovely present from the book fairy!

Next week we will be using the sound ‘oa’ from goat and boat. We will be looking at number and at data handling in maths while we carry on with our topic, The Body.

Body Parts

We were writing about our dragon story.

We shared books that we love to read and have written ourselves.

“We were drawing hard words with oats.” (Rhylan)

“We were writing pyramids with the whiteboards and pens and we were using our sound to write the words. The sound was u_e. We were also doing it in groups.” (Natsumi and Georgia)


“We were drawing around our bodies so we could show where the body parts go and what they do. We were having to put them into the right places so they can make our body move.” (Rory and Alexis)

“We were learning about the body. We were matching words with body parts. The words were all verbs. We have a song about it – Every sentence needs a verb, a doing or a being word, happening verbs! We have also learned about more body parts.” (Megan, Járed, Riley and Nathan)

Next week we will be finishing our maths topic of fractions. Our sound will be ‘aw’.
