Miss Cox's Class Autumn 2012

Hello everyone, welcome to our Year 2's class  autumn website information.

We have started the term thinking about what we need to do stay healthy. During this time we have explored keeping clean and discovered liquid soap was the most efficient at getting our hands clean,  a bar of soap was next and Mr. Soapy (the foaming soap we have in class) was the worst. We thought about how to keep the investigation fair so we timed each wash for 10 seconds and used the same temperature of water. We had great fun coating our hands with blue paint which represented germs. Blue paint was everywhere.....Miss Cox was a little worried when our class was called to have their photographs taken! I think we escaped without any paint being visible on our photos.....Phew!

Tasting, drawing and painting a range of delicious fruit was great fun. Our Class of the Week Assembly was based on being healthy. We baffled the rest of Key Stage 1 with some fabulous food riddles and shared our excellent art work.

We learnt about hospitals in the past and discovered that they were scary, dirty places before Florence Nightingale and her team of nurses changed them. Miss Cox was very impressed with our research homework about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. A highlight of this history work was a visit by 'Tempus Fugit Theatre Company'. We greatly enjoyed an interactive Florence Nightingale performance.

Getting our names in the 'Chance Box' is a super reward for working hard or keeping the 'Golden Rules'. Taking 'Charlie' our class 'Build-a-bear' home for the weekend is a real treat. We now have a special wardrobe for all the outfits.

Harvest is a special time of the year when we think about giving to others. This year we are collecting tins of food and presenting them to Reverend Tim at the Methodist Church on Liverpool Road.
