The Summer term is upon us already and we have started back with the topic 'Incredible Journeys'. In Year 2 we will be looking at a variety of journeys, both close by and in the wider world. We will have a geography focus to our topic work and hope to use the outdoor environment as much as we can.
We've had a great start back after the Christmas holidays! We have thrown ourselves into our new school topic called 'Out of this World!'. We started the topic by reading, 'Aliens love Underpants' by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort. This captured our imagination and we designed our own 'aliens'. We will be using this funny book to inspire our story writing next week. We also created some 'planet' artwork using filter paper and water. The children made rockets at home (thank you parents for all your help with those!) which are popping up around the room too!
We were very excited to have a mobile planetarium come to visit us this week to help launch our topic. Each class went into the planetarium and enjoyed the amazing look at the planets, stars and even the space station.
It was great to start back at school on Tuesday. Our whole school topic this term is 'Lost Kingdoms'.
We are going to be learning about London in 1666, and what happened during the Great Fire of London. We will continue this theme in our art and D.T this term, creating atmospheric paintings and making bread!
Our science will look at materials, learning about different materials and their properties.
On Tuesday 5th September we made houses to add to our Great Fire of London display.
As part of our homework we have researched a 'Lost Kingdom'. We then presented our information in an interesting way.
During the week we earn marbles for great work or behaviour, and when we have 100 marbles in our class jar, we have a 'Marble Day'! We do lots of fun activities on these days.
We had great fun ending out Great Fire of London work by burning the houses that we made. We made sure that they were placed close together, just like the houses at that time.
