This term we have based lots of our work on the Roald Dahl favourite Fantastic Mr Fox. We have absolutely loved exploring his cheeky, cunning character and finding out exactly what makes him so fantastic. In Science we have explored ‘Living Things and their Habitats’. As part of this topic we had a trip to Portishead Marina to visit our local habitat.
This term we have learnt all about how to stay fit and healthy. We jumped back to 1854 to see how Florence Nightingale changed hospitals for the better. We loved designing fruit snacks to try and encourage young children to eat more fruit and vegetables!
India is such a fascinating and exciting country to learn about. We have definitely used our creative skills this term, we’ve been sewing, dancing, designing and even cooking our own naan breads!
We absolutely loved going back in time to explore ‘The Great Fire of London’ and the first ‘Journey to the moon’. We completed some amazing diary entries, newspaper reports and letters demonstrating everything we had learnt about the fire that destroyed London in 1666. We discovered who was the first person to land on the moon and we explored Tim Peake’s more recent journey to the ISS.
We are really enjoying learning all about dinosaurs in Year 2. We loved our WOW day where we dressed up as ‘Dinosaur Detectives’ and completed lots of exciting activities to help us learn more about our topic. Soon we have a very special visitor coming to school…look out for the pictures!
Each child designed and made their own dinosaur model.
We are absolutely loving our Castle topic! We recently had a ‘Castle Day’ where we spent all morning making our own models. On June 19th we really enjoyed visiting Caldicot Castle and meeting a real knight called Sir Thomas!
