Nottingham in Bloom!
Look at our beautiful paintings and oil pastel drawings of mini beasts...
Bentinck Bug Lodge
We have been learning about mini beasts in Class 2. Mr Brannigan made us a fantastic bug hotel so that we can encourage mini beasts to come to Bentinck and then observe them and learn all about their habitats! We had to research what to put in the bug lodge and check it regularly to see if there are any new visitors!
Class 2 went on a trip to Hyson Green library, we all chose one book each to bring back to school. On World Book Day we carried our library books around all day and when the bell rang we read our books for five minutes- even at play time! We played did a book scavenger hunt and played guess who with book characters.
Class 2 are enjoying trampolining for their PE lessons, look at us jump! We can do a tuck, jump, straddle and star jump so far!
We have started doing lots of festive things in Class 2 to get ready for Christmas, we are very excited! We have even written letters to Santa...
In Science we have been learning about materials and their different properties. We have done
some experiments to test how absorbent or waterproof some materials are. We had a go at using wax crayons to make fabric waterproof, look at the results...
Our topic this half term has been festivals. We worked in groups to investigate different religions, what festivals they celebrate and how they celebrate. Each group made a book about their festival and had to present it to the rest of the class.
We have had lots of fun reading The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt this half term.
In our PHSE lessons we talked about what makes us happy at school and what makes us feel like quitting, then in Literacy we wrote a letter to Mrs Burton to tell her how we feel.
MacMillan Coffee Morning
Class 2 iced biscuits and joined in with the school non uniform day to help raise money for MacMillan.
