Peacock Class have had a great first term in Year 2! They have learnt all about the life of Florence Nightingale and how she trained nurses to help soldiers in Crimea. Year 2 had a fantastic Florence Nightingale workshop where the children pretended to be Florence’s nurses. They scrubbed the floor, tidied bandages and helped the wounded soldiers.
In maths the children have been learning about telling the time and measuring capacity, weight and length. The children practised making medicines for Florence by carefully measuring the different liquids.
We also went on a wonderful school trip to Painshill Park. We worked as a team to build marvellous dens and then these were tested with water to see how successful our den building had been. In the afternoon we used our map reading skills to hunt for treasure. What a fabulous day of team building!
