Finishing the week with a spot of relaxation. We really enjoyed our mindfulness colouring. #mentalheathawareness
Kicking off Children's Mental Health Awareness week looking at what makes us unique. It is very easy to think of things we are not very good at but harder to think about what is good about ourselves.
Our jigsaw pieces celebrate our likes and dislikes as well as our talents.
We then put them together to show how 2-3 Holly is made up.
We have spent the week learning about the life and work of Van Gogh.
Today we worked in groups using different mediums to create sections of Van Gogh's Sunflowers. We then put the pieces together. This is what we made.
I was so impressed how the children worked together and communicated with each other to create this masterpiece.
SATS UPDATE: 25th May
Your children are amazing! Words cannot express how proud I am of my Year 2s. They have approached the SATS with determination, resilience and a positive 'I can' attitude. Well done Year 2. You are a credit to your families and to this school!
In science today we had fun exploring, sorting and labelling the parts of a plant. Why not ask your child to tell you about the different parts and their jobs.

We had a fabulous lesson discussing the language used in our latest English story book:
Gracie the Lighthouse Cat
We focused on this phrase: Braving the raging storm.
looking at: the meaning of the words •How it makes us feel •Other words the writer could have chosen.
This half term we have been focusing on the life and work of L.S. Lowry. How much do you know about him? Take a look at some of his work. We also enjoyed listening to this Lowry inspired song whilst we created our masterpieces.

Today we explored what resilience means and how we can develop this and become strong, resilient learners. We had fun exploring our emotions and how our brain works. We also looked our developing a positive mindset by turning negative statements into positive ones. As we frequently say in 2-3 Holly: It's only a problem if you make it a problem!
This is what resilience means to 2-3 Holly!
