WELCOME TO YEAR 2 CONDORS
Condors are large, graceful and strong birds. They have great hunting skills and travel long distances so they can feed themselves and their families. They have brilliant looking skills and listening skills which we will be using within our own Condors class.

MEET THE TEAM
If there are any issues or concerns, please feel free to come in and see your teacher (Mrs Brownen) or alternatively please contact a team leader (Mr Wingrove or Mr O'Sullivan).
As part of our Science journey, the children used observation to answer the question 'Why is it important to wash your hands for 20 seconds?'.
First the children rubbed 'Glitter Bug' lotion onto their hands which highlights any unclean areas under UV light.
They then dipped their hands into cold water and looked at their hands under the UV light. The children were able to see any parts of their hands that were not clean. They were surprised how many areas were highlighted.
The next step was to wash their hands for 20 seconds with soap. When we checked their hands under the light this time there were virtually no highlighted areas.
What a fun and educational Science session.
Great work Condors!
Maths Learning From Our First Week Back - 11.09.20
We have had a great first week learning about number values in numbers from 0-50. We have been remembering how to count forwards and backwards and also learning how to represent numbers using Maths equipment. We have learnt two new words to describe numbers - tens and ones. We can now use this language to identify how big a number is. We even made our own human number line putting numbers in order up to 50.
