Tiger Tiger!

We are finding out all about out the geography, food, culture and wildlife of India. We will be researching and writing about tigers, and learning all about Indian art. We will be cooking up an Indian feast, and finding out how animals around the globe are adapted to their surroundings. We will acting out Indian stories and making up our own. It's going to be an exciting half term!

Fun fractions.... we have been using all sorts of different things to investigate fractions practically. We cut and labelled tortillas and found equivalent fractions with them.

Shape skeletons.

We have been learning to name, sort and describe 2D and 3D shapes. We predicted how many sticks (edges) and balls of blutac (vertices) it would take to make these 3D shape skeletons. We persevered to make them, working with a partner - it was a bit fiddly, but we got there!

Our chilly January topic is..... Let it Snow!

We are learning about the Arctic and Antarctic regions. We have found out all about polar bears - their unique features, how they hunt, and all about polar bear babies.

Year 2 and 5 visit Safewise.

We learned so much about keeping safe on our Safewise visit! We found out more about staying safe online, about road safety, stranger danger and keeping safe at the park. We also learned what to do if there is a fire, how to make a 999 call, and how to stay safe at the beach. Thank you very much to all the Safewise staff for such a fantastic visit.

We had some special visitors today!

Following on from our Great Fire topic, we were lucky enough to have a visit from the Fire Service today. We got to explore the fire truck, try on the equipment and spray the hose to pretend to fight a Great Fire! 

We had a fabulous time! Thank you to the Swanage firefighters for visiting us.

The Great Fire of London

The Great Fire of London 1

Year 2 are learning about the Great Fire of London this half term. We are acting out scenes from the story, and being history detectives to find out more about the causes of the fire, how it spread, and what happened to London afterwards. We will be presenting plans to the King for rebuilding London, to protect the city from fire. In art we will be using charcoal and chalk to sketch Jacobean timbered houses, and collage materials in groups to make a Pudding Lane street scene.

Through science, we are learning about healthy eating and living, and investigating the effects of exercise on our bodies. We are also investigating the properties of materials - testing which would make waterproof shelters for people who have lost their houses in the fire, and the best boat shape to take heavy weights 'across the Thames'!

It's been getting very Tiger-ey around Year 2! We have enjoyed reading the Tiger Who Came to Tea, and re-telling the story with actions. The tiger visited our classroom, and wrote to us asking us to make him some snacks, so we read / wrote instructions and made him some sandwiches. Guess what? He didn't just eat one sandwich... he ate all the sandwiches on the plate.

We are now writing stories about what the Tiger would get up to if he visited our school.

We have also painted these super pictures... have a look and see which mark-making techniques we used for the details.

Here we are re telling the story. We used story maps to help us remember.
