Cedar Class - Year 2

Parent sharing learning morning!

 

This terms learning kicked off with an exciting visit from some of our parents. The children showed off their navigation skills by exploring treasure maps.  Inspired by these maps we decided to hide our own treasure chests (created as homework) and created instructions and maps for our friends and adults to find them. 

This week Cedar Class went back in time to sample a drink that sailors would have drunk out at sea many years ago. We followed the instructions carefully to create the drink, then all tasted it to give our opinion. These seemed to be very mixed! "I'm not sure about this!"  "This tastes quite nice!" 

Why don't you follow the instructions and find out for yourself? 

You need:

1 lemon

1 tablespoon of brown sugar

1 pinch of powdered ginger

1 jug of hot water

Directions:

1.Cut the lemon in half and squeeze out the juice

2.Put juice in jug and add sugar and ginger

3.Add hot water and stir well

Land Ahoy!

What a fantastic start we have had to the year in Cedar Class!

The children have immersed themselves into our Land Ahoy! Topic. From treasure hunts, pirate puppet creations, pirate adventure stories, pirate ship building and sailor biscuits. It sure has been a busy term! Our exciting topic has continued into our outdoor learning afternoons, where we have been tools to create our very own pirate medallions

This week the children have met Percy the Parrot who has decided that he would like to spend time at home with them. He will be visiting a home each week with his very special diary that the children can fill with their adventures with Percy.

We look forward to what hearing all about your adventures with Percy.
