During our second visit from Idris, a chef from The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, Year 2 made delicious fresh salads. We practised safe cutting skills such as the claw and bridge grip. We'll be using these skills when we make our healthy pizzas next week.
We celebrated our learning enquiry by singing a song all about fresh, healthy salads. It's a catchy tune and we hope the grandparents enjoyed it and inspired them to make their own salad for tea.
Chorus: It's time to make a fresh salad, a fresh salad, the best fresh salad in the world x 2

We have been learning yoga in our PE lessons and we were lucky enough to have a visit from Mrs Rich who taught us lots of different poses such as butterfly, tree, cat and downward dog. We have also been thinking about which ones make our bodies symmetrical and which ones don't. When talking about how yoga makes us feel we came up with the words...

How does yoga make you feel?
Information for parents
Click on the above links to see a PowerPoint for progression of maths skills at Ashley school. These will be useful so that you are able to understand the methods your child uses, which may be different to the methods you use, so that you can best support them. Please ask your child which method they use as it will differ for each child. The key is that they are comfortable and secure in the method they use.
