Our Big Question is:
Why were Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong brave people?
In preparation for our author visit from Olaf Falafel, Year 3 came to share their character descriptions. The children were challenged to draw the characters by listening to the descriptions before they could look at the picture to see how close they were.
Thank you to all the grown ups who came to the Showcase. The children had lots of fun sharing their learning with you. The Christopher Columbus inspired ships looked brilliant!

Was it really full steam ahead?
Dancing to the Titanic Waltz
We partnered up and learnt how to dance some basic Waltz steps just like the first class passengers would have done on board the Titanic. Watch out Strictly Come Dancing!
Who was to blame for the sinking of The Titanic?
Was it Captain Smith's fault? Could it have been Captain Lord's fault?
We held a debate to see if we could decide who was to blame.
In Literacy we have been reading about 'The Bog Baby'. The children have written stories and descriptions of our class bog baby and also created their own.
We have been exploring materials in Science and we decided to look at floating and sinking. We tested different objects to see if they would sink our mini 'Titanic'.
The children created their own dragons and then used them to create sentences within Literacy.
In Maths the children explored how many ways they can make a number. How many ways do you know?
We looked at 'comparing crocodiles' in Maths and used them to explore objects within the classroom.
During PE we have been exploring balances and the children became the teachers supporting each other and teaching tips to improve their partners balances.
What makes a sentence?
Year 2 have been exploring simple sentences and we are creating our own this week based on the text 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth'.
What happened to The Titanic?
We explored the main events through drama.
