Spring 1

Gardeners' World

Our big question: Could you grow a banana in the UK?

World Book Day

We enjoyed having our parents and grandparents in the classroom to read with us. It was lots of fun when D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything And Read) happened in the middle of our music lesson.

We dressed up as a word. Here are dangerous and missing.

Cotton Workshop

We found out which countries grow cotton and all the different jobs that people need to do so that the cotton plants can be made into the clothes we wear. We made sock puppets that became one of the workers on the journey of the cotton.

Spring 1

London's Burning!

Katie in London

We have been reading Katie in London By James Mayhew.

We imagined we were Katie and Jack and wrote a diary about the adventures in London.

We enjoyed finding out about what happened during The Great Fire of London when Annie came to tell us all about it.

She demonstrated how the fire spread so quickly.

We found out what the house looked like and made some house in the right style.

Even though the weather was not like the hot, windy weather during The Great Fire of London we ventured outside to discover how the fire spread along the street all the way to St. Paul's Cathedral.

Brilliant Bugs

What would the world be like without bugs?

Bug Hotels

 

Thank you so much for completing your homework this week and  bringing in all the things we needed to make our bug hotels.

We really enjoyed choosing which bugs we were going to attract to our hotels, nailing the frames together and making the rooms cosy for the bugs.

We put our bug hotels outside in the school garden so the bugs can enjoy them.

Zoolab

Year 2 had some very exciting visitors. We met a tarantula, millipede, a giant African land snail and a snake.

 

Snail hunting

We have been finding out about all the things a snails needs to survive in their habitat. We went out to the garden to search for everything we needed including the snails. After we had found some snails in the school garden we made them a habitat in the classroom that had everything they needed.

Grow Mindset

 

We had a tower building challenge. We had to be Professor Perseverence, Major Mistake, Captain Challenge and Inspector Independent because the towers weren't as easy to build as we thought and they kept falling down!

 

We persevered and used different techniques to build the tallest tower we could.
