Good morning Year 2
It looks like it is going to be another sunny day so get out in your garden and enjoy some fresh air if you can. Why not try a senses scavenger hunt?
Please let me know what you have been up to and I can share it on here for your friends to see. Ask an adult to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your messages, work and photos.

The young whale was tragically stranded on a beach near Drigg, West Cumbria (2014) and was recovered by an expedition for the Museum some six months later. The skeleton has been identified as a Sei whale which is one of the baleen group of whales which the Blue Whale also belongs to. Sei whales can grow up to eighteen metres in length and can weigh up to thirty tons. Baleen whales have no teeth and instead have special combs in their mouths called baleen plates. They take huge mouthfuls of food and water, the water is then filtered through the plates leaving the whale’s diet of krill, plankton, small fish and squid. We are now working to find out more about this wonderful specimen and prepare the skeleton for display.
We measured how long Baby Drigsby would have been - 12 children long!
We got touched the baylene that was from Drigsby's mouth. We also got to practice being explorers by cleaning the bones - they had to be burried in horse poo to get rid of the smell!
Linking to our Harvest story 'Pumpkin Soup' we decided to follow a recipe to make pumpkin soup. We had to follow the instructions step by step and be responsible year 2s when using the cookery knives.
An adjective is a describing word!
In year 2 we have been looking at boring sentences. We have been thinking of amazing adjectives we could add into the boring sentences to make them more exciting!
