International Week Activities

Next week the Year 2 will be rounding off the term by embracing International Week. The children will be taking part in series of lessons across all subject areas.

During International Week, we will be discussing how cultures vary in different countries. Among the activities, students will learn a song from a different country and practise some greetings in a different language. Year 2 will learn about Indian Art. We will look at beautiful Rangoli art designs and try to recreate them with salt and black paper!

The children will taste and identify the foodstuffs used to make the Latin specialty “Guacamole’. They will then use the given ingredients to make their own bowl of guacamole in groups of 4.  Each class will then evaluate the guacamole made by each group. As a follow up, the children will then find out where avocados come from and identify these countries on a world map. After eating their Guacamole the children will learn a dance to the Latin hit Waka Waka!

We will also learn and write about the English folklore hero Robin Hood! The children will be thinking about the moral question "Is it good to steal?" by thinking about the legend of Robin Hood, the famous folk tale from England. They will be working in groups to discuss opinions and justify their answers by referring to real-life and fictional situations.

PSHCE

The teachers will teach the children playground games and discuss what it means to be a good friend.

De kinderen van year 2  verdiepen zich deze week verder in de medische sector. Welke mensen lopen er allemaal rond in een ziekenhuis?  Wat moet je kunnen en weten om dokter of verpleegster te worden? De kinderen hadden heel wat vragen over operaties en narcose  dus we halen er een specialist  ter zake bij! 

In de spellingslessen buigen we ons over de achtervoegsels – en, -er en –ig.
