Vets Role Play

On Friday, the children helped to set up our Vets Role Play Area in the classroom. They will be able to use this to support their learning and have lots of fun! So far they have created animal profiles, identification cards and posters. Some even had time to dress up.
Autumn Term Review
What a busy Autumn term we have had!  We've worked really hard and learnt lots.  One of our favourite activities was the visit we had from the vets. Before the visit, we wrote letters to the vet asking them lots of  questions to help with our animal topic. A vet and a vet nurse came into Class 2 to tell us all about their jobs.  We got to try on gloves, shoe covers, aprons, facemasks and hair-covers.  They brought in lots of animals: a dog, a puppy, a rabbit, a tortoise and a chicken!  The chicken was really funny because he kept trying to get out of his box!!  We used stethoscopes to listen to the dog's heartbeat as well.  After the visit we wrote recounts about what we had done and thank you letters to the vets.
We did lots of story telling to help us with our 'talk for writing' work in English and enjoyed using the text maps to retell texts and then used this to help us write our own stories.  Before Christmas, we even learnt the Nativity story using a text map and then recorded it to share with parents.
We loved using the iPads to explore the 2Paint a Picture tool on 'Purple Mash' in our computing work.  We studied the work of different artists and used the templates on Purple Mash to create our own pictures in the same style. Some of our pieces were really impressive.
