Year 2 Letters
Year 2 are already busy preparing for this year's Nativity:
We are starting to learn the lyrics to the songs and now know which characters we are! We are busy learning our lines in school and at home.
Which is the best material for a boat?
We have been investigating different materials in our Science this week. We predicted which material would float for the longest. The metal boat was the winner!
This week we found a fairy door whilst exploring autumn in the environmental area. We have written some beautiful stories about what happened when we knocked on the door!
Here are some pictures of the fun learning we have enjoyed during the Autumn term.
In RE we have been thinking about the clubs, groups and religions we belong to and how this makes us feel.
Who changed the world?
This half-term we have been really excited to start learning about key people who have changed history.
We have been imagining we are David Livingstone and Christopher Columbus going on amazing adventures to discover new places. We have learnt lots of new geography skills and produced some beautiful writing.
Isambard Kingdom Brunel
This week we found out about Brunel and all of the brilliant things he has designed. Did you know that he built the Great Western Railway all the way from Bristol to London?
We really enjoyed finding out about how he changed the world of travel. We even had a go at being engineers and designed our own suspension bridges!
Last week we learnt all about Neil Armstrong and his Apollo 11 mission to the moon.
We designed our own rockets and wrote our own newspaper reports about the special event.
We've had a brilliant start to Year 2. This week we read Stuck by Oliver Jeffers and made our own kites. We had a great time flying them on our playground.
