This term in English we are going to be writing about a pirate and the adventure that entails. In our writing we well be using, nouns, noun phrases and exciting adjectives that will entice our readers in. To create the best writing possible we will be stepping into a pirates shoes and pretending to experience what they might have.
To follow on from out English theme we will be investigating the Titanic during Topic (History and Geography). We will be using our reading skill to help us find key facts in different types of text and to place the events of the Titanic in a chronological order.
In Design and Technology we will be creating our very own titanic moving picture book using skills like, cutting, sticking and creating sliders to allow our images to move. I am very excited for our DT project as I can't wait to see what we create.
In Science we will be using our investigative and experimental skills to answer questions on different materials. Our aim is to find out why we might use certain materials for some objects, what their properties are and if they sink or float.
Keep checking in on this page to keep updated with all that we will be doing during this term.
Holly class have really enjoyed moths this week! We have been looking at addition, adding single digit to a single digit, a 2 digit to a 1 digit and a 2 digit to a tens number. Everyone was so amazing and really pushed themselves! Everyone was asking for harder numbers... which of course I gave to them We like to challenge ourselves in year 2!
Holly Class did an absolutely incredible job with fundraising for Sean Rose (Paralympian)!! We also had an absolute blast exercising with Sean Rose! We also had the amazing opportunity to talk to him at the end of the day and ask a lot of questions! We learnt so much! He lived a very exciting, interesting life!
This term in DT (Design and Technology) we have been following on with our theme of the Titanic (Which I am sure most of you parents have heard your children go on excitedly about! ) Our task was to create a moving picture of the Titanic using sliders and mechanisms, we discussed about the different directions we would need to go in to make our picture like as realistic as possible. We explored the different types of equipment we would need to create this and all the skills we would need to know. I must say I am extremely impressed by our DT skills. I think I found it more of a challenge than the children did!
