What’s happening this half term?
In English we are exploring space through different picture books and texts. These books are: Man on the Moon, Bob and the Moontree Mystery and One Giant Leap. We will write a narrative based on aliens, write space poems, create a set of instructions on how to fly to the moon and write an information text on an astronaut.
In maths we are looking at multiplication and division, statistics and properties of shape.
Our topic is based around a question: How has food changed over time? In this topic we will look at how food has changed, focusing on what our grandparents ate when they were children. We will also have a guest speaker in school to share their experiences. We will also study the work of Arcimboldo and create our own collages.
Our Science topic is based around a question: What is our school made of? In this topic we will look at the properties of different materials and compare manmade and natural materials. We will also look at the problems with recycling plastic and how it can be reused. We will then look at what Charles Macintosh and John Dunlop invented and how we find them useful today.
Year 2 have been learning all about the Wright Brothers and their first flight. During this topic, we spent lots of time looking at how aeroplanes have changed and what they are made of. We went to visit Manchester Airport and we got to look at the aeroplanes landing...
These lovely little fairy toadstool houses have been made by our children in the after school pottery club.
