F2LW had a wonderful time at Church Farm yesterday!
We were introduced to the Farmers and we saw lots of different animals such as, pigs, goats, geese, meerkats and emu's. We went on an exciting tractor ride to go and feed some ponies, alpacas and donkeys. We then went to the Hen House and collected lots of eggs followed by holding some rabbits and guinea pigs. We learnt so much about the farm and are excited to continue our learning in the upcoming weeks.

F2 - Healthy Bodies and Healthy Minds Week, by Miss Ward
Date: 29th Feb 2020 @ 3:43pm
This week, we have been learning about how to keep our bodies and our minds healthy. We talked about what foods are healthy and unhealthy, then we each made a healthy fruit kebab using a repeated pattern for snack time. They were very tasty!
We also looked at how to keep our minds healthy by using our 'Zones of Regulation Chart', this helped us to look at our different emotions and how to deal with them. We then participated in some breathing exercises and yoga which helped us feel very calm and relaxed. We have had a lovely week learning all about how to stay healthy!

This week F2 have been working hard learning about different habitats across the world! We have made habitat boxes, created leaflets, sorted which animals and plants live in the habitats and we also learnt a habitat song. On Friday we invited Year 1 to come over to our classrooms to share what we have learnt with them. The children had a fantastic time telling Year 1 about their learning and showing their work to them.
