Following our science week in school, the children were given a choice of fun experiments to try at home as part of their home learning this week. There were lots of fantastic reactions and it is clear to see that we have some super scientists in 2WB!
It was book t-shirts galore today, for World Book Day! We had a go at building a reading den in school for our World Book Day activities. Later, we went live with our class to see how the den building was going on at home. It was lovely to hangout together, sharing extracts and chatting […]
Scavenger hunting in the classroom – something made of wood and something with wheels. Examples from hunting at home.

We have been using geo boards to draw examples of basic 2D shapes. We then moved on to drawing shapes, using a set of instructions: Draw a large rectangle on squared paper or dotted paper. Draw a square inside the rectangle. Draw a triangle below the rectangle. Draw a pentagon that is bigger than the […]
Come and visit Mrs Burkinshaw and Mrs Waller in our new virtual library with links to some lovely reads.
What did you have on your pancakes today?
We started by playing along to music with our standard and non-standard instruments. We moved our learning forward with some composing of our own. We have had so much fun learning about musical notes!
Today we gathered some everyday household items and got ready to try some alternative ways of messaging. Firstly, we looked at how we could use objects to make images of words or phrases. Then we used some special solutions to investigate what would make the best invisible ink. Our grand finale was making Morse Code […]
Our challenge today was if I had 5 coins, what amount of money could I have? The children came up with a range of answers. Can you think of any that we missed?
In our music lesson today, we continued to practice moving to the beat of the music. Children are now reading a range of notes. We can also play our own musical (and improvised) instruments along to a piece of music.
We started with a warm up – listening to the different notes to make our movements with. We then used a rest with the notes we already know to add a challenge to our practice.
We did a warm up using marching, punching and shoulder rolls. After warming up successfully, we practiced our ball control skills at home. Some excellent skills demonstrated – well done!
Today @RotherhamMusic delivered our Winter-themed music lesson online. After warming up, we learned about our diaphragm and how to use our posture for singing. We tapped to the beats in a song, then moved to the beats. We can use musical notation to represent the different movements we did e.g. walk, stride, jogging and slow. […]
Today we read a school reading book electronically, choosing from the non-fiction genre. Our task was to make a poster for the book and include any new facts that we had just found out. Beautifully presented – well done 2WB!
Today we looked at items of equipment for an experiment. We put them in a list. We made a prediction about using the equipment. Next, we watched or participated in 3 different experiments: Fizzing Potions Milk Swirls Rainbow Skittles We even made our own videos… Finally, we drew and wrote about our observations… We really […]
We had an amazing virtual reading group today 👍🏻😀 Can you guess what our story was about? We read Goldilocks and the clever plan – making predictions and answering bug questions just like this one. Have you read any books online this week?
Alfie Jack enjoyed boosting his wellbeing (and appetite) with global cuisine at home this week. Mum says he has loved trying something new and helped to prepare the meals before eating them together. I notice that Alfie Jack has chosen to drink water as a healthy option, too.
