Welcome to our class page. Your class teacher is Mrs. Dowker. Miss Brier and Mrs Harrison also work in Class 2D supporting the children with their learning. On Wednesday and Thursday afternoon Senora Pitcher teaches in 2D.
Welcome back after the half term holiday and we hope everyone is feeling refreshed and ready for your child's final half term in year 2. This half term our topic is 'Magical Journeys.' We are planning to learn about the history of transport and significant individuals. We will investigate floating and sinking and use this knowledge to build a boat which we will test. We will consider the future of transport and design a type of transport for the future. We will be using fabric to create different pieces of 3D art work and practice our sewing skills. We are going to learn how to dip dye to create our own art work on a t-shirt. In literacy we will be writing our own adventure stories for travelling to magical lands and using magical forms of transport. In numeracy we will be practicing our mathematical skills and knowledge by solving problems.
KS 1 sports day will be in July and we will let you know the exact date as soon as possible.
We investigated different objects to find out whether they would float or sink. We made a hypothesis and tested our predictions.We decided that even though the orange and the banana floated , it would be better to make a boat out of wood or plastic!
3D Habitat models.
We have been researching how animals are adapted to their habitats. We made 3D shoe box models of the habitat of either the ocean, the desert, the arctic or a tropical rainforest.
We investigated how to make a bulb light up in an electrical circuit.
This half term we are learning about the religion of Islam. Today we learned how Muslims need to prepare for prayer. We learned about the special way Muslims wash before prayer, this is called Wudu. We acted out some of the steps and sequenced the pictures.
