This week Year 2 have really enjoyed looking at ways to keep healthy and be active. On Wednesday afternoon the children got the chance to taste five different fruits that they may not have eaten before: cherry, pomegranate, passion fruit, grapefruit and lychee. Most of the children found one or more new fruits that they enjoyed eating!
Also the children made fruits cups using the fruit they brought in. They very carefully sliced up the fruit and layered them in the cups. Thank you for bringing in such a great range of fruit.
All the Year 2 classes had great fun today seeing how many steps they could take around the MUGA by walking or running!
We kept a tally of how many laps of the MUGA each child achieved and then added the scores together to find the class total. We then used this to calculate how many steps around the MUGA each class had taken.
The totals are as follows:
Aqua Class: 275 laps (55,000 steps)
Blue Class: 280 laps (56,000 steps)
Indigo Class: 252 laps (50,400 steps)
Sky Class: 262 laps (52,400 steps)
The children showed great determination to do their best and I was very proud of the sportsmanship and encouragement they gave each other.
Year 2 had a fantastic day celebrating World Book Day today. Everybody looked fantastic dressed up as their favourite book characters! This afternoon we read Elmer which we all loved. Then we made a giant Elmer and designed a new friend for Elmer.
