Year 2 Chicks

Year 2 loved looking after the chicks in their class. They enjoyed watching them hatch in their incubator and grow (very quickly). The children observed how the chicks got bigger, growing more prominent feathers and larger wings and taller legs. The children were amazed as they hopped around trying to fly. Our chick monitors did a great job of caring for our chicks before we said goodbye to them and returned them to their home.

The children designed a run for the chicks, when they were big enough, and built toys for the chicks to play with.

'I watched them be born!' Freddie

Year 2 Star Writers

Well done to Leah, Lily and Rajaab; our Star Writers this week.

When they received a letter from Mrs Nichols stating she was thinking about taking away their independent learning time the children were mortified. 

"How can she do this?"

"How will we become independent?" They questioned. 

So. The children got there heads together and compiled a very convinceing list of reasons why independent learning/choice time was fundamental for their protests. They they each wrote their own persuasive letter to Mrs Nicholls. 

The girls both wrote powerful letters which convinced Mrs Nicholls to withdraw her comments and allow independent t time to be reinstated. They included emotive language, an if sentence and even a rhetorical question! Well done girls!
