We took part in the Premier League Primary Stars draw together competition which is all about allyship and how it is important to stop racism. We watched videos of professional football players talking about their experience of racism and what they are doing about it. We created posters to represent what allyship means to us and pledge what we will do to be a good ally. There were lots of good posters, but of course there could only be one winner per class. Congratulations and well done to our 2FD winner who has has been awarded with a medal from Mr Holland! We love your poster because it is unique, written with your own words, and really represents allyship and supporting each other.
We worked in groups to read our poem ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’. We used lots of gestures and expression.
We had lots of fun with Becky from The Rep!
As part of our English lessons this week we have been learning all about the importance of reducing plastic pollution and why we need to recycle more!.

As part of our topic on Seasides we have been using our sketching skills to practice lines and shapes and sketch images of our focus town of Bournemouth.

Lots of children in 2FD want to learn to tie their own shoelaces! We had a quick look at these videos in class but did not have time to keep practising. Here are the step-by-step videos for those who want to practise at home. It will help to pause the video if the teacher goes too fast. Choose whichever method you think looks easier. If you don’t get on with either of these two methods, the same YouTuber (OT & Me) has other methods you can try. Remember: Practise makes perfect!
As part of our Science ‘Young Gardeners’ topic we planted seeds and will observe them growing over the next few weeks. Let’s remember to water them 2FD!
