This is the poem Year 2 are learning in Block 1:
Magic of Forest
Nature around me, leaves rustling in the wind,
Dewy green grass in mornings, under my steps,
To breathe deeply the fresh, pure air of forest I enjoy,
I listen the twitter of birds that I so much adore,
I love to walk along rivers,
Blossomed flowers to smell and admire,
I adore the forest, the marvellous trees,
I want to live there forever,
Till the end of my days.
For our French and BSL Day, Year 2 learnt some French greetings; bonjour, au reviour and merci. Firstly, we took the register in French and then we practiced all of the greetings through conversation with our partners and with our teachers. We also shared any other French words we knew and tried to use them in conversation too! Next we learnt the numbers 0-10 in French and played lots of French number games such as bingo, a read and role dice game and completed a French colour by number. In the afternoon we learnt some British Sign Language. Again, we learnt some greetings like hello, goodbye, please and thank you and we learnt how to finger spell our names! We’ve had such a fun day!
