This week we have been looking at the poem 'The Sound Collector' by Roger McGough.  We then listened to all of the sounds we could hear in and around the school, and used them to innovate our own class poem.  (Below is a copy of that poem).  We then used a video making app to transform our class poem into a performance, using images to support our retelling of the poem.

Today was Antarctic Day in Year 2 and we arrived at school in warm layers and boots! To start the day, we made and baked sledge biscuits using the same recipe that Robert Falcon Scott and his team would have eaten on their brave mission. Next, we created our expedition teams in the main hall. We came up with some fantastic names and team poses! Then, we filled our team sledges and pulled them across the Antarctic fields to complete our team challenges. After that, we headed down to the woods where we ate our biscuits around a real campfire with warm hot chocolate, yum! Finally, we played campfire games to celebrate competing our expedition!
