Welcome to Class 2D.

Welcome back everyone for your final half term in Year 2. Time has flown by! Our topic this half term is Amazing Animals. We were learning about different animals and their habitats. We are going to be visiting Blackpool zoo and learning about how animals are adapted for their habitat. We will research an animal. We will use this research to make a shoe box habitat for a clay animal that we will design and make. We are going to develop are sewing skills by using a running stitch to make an animal puppet. This half term is always a busy time of year. We will be having our Key Stage 1 sports day and have a play to learn and perform. More details to follow.

Year 2 have been learning about animals and their habitats. We have learned how different animals are adapted for their habitats. We have used our learning to make a shoe box habitat. We started with making an animal out of clay to go in our habitat. We created the habitat using different materials and the different DT techniques we have learned to make them 3D.

Year 2 had a brilliant time at Blackpool zoo as part of our Amazing Animal topic. It was a very hot but enjoyable day.

Class 2D celebrating the 1960s in Morecambe.

We have been to Torrisholme Park to look at what is available and to think how this could be improved. We thought about the age groups that the park is aimed at.

Year 2 have been learning archery. We had a fantastic time.

We have been learning to read a scale accurately. We made different dragon potions to help catch the dragons that are on our school field at nighttime.

Year 2 have enjoyed their banquet to celebrate all their learning during their topic. They made the food for the banquet and provided the entertainment.

We have made a castle with a moving drawbridge. We used a winding mechanism to make the drawbridge go up and down.

Year 2 were challenged to create armour for Sir Egbert. It needed to protect him, look like armour and he needed a face that could be seen. We enjoyed making the armour and had an 'eggcellent' time throwing him across the playground to test his armour.

At Clitheroe Castle, we learned to talk to dragons.

Year 2 visited Clitheroe Castle. We learned about motte and bailey castles and dragons. We became experts at talking to dragons by using a sword. We can protect a dragon by working together together using our shields. We went into the keep, along the curtain wall and into the danger zone.

We have had a fantastic day taking part in lots of activities for our India topic. In the morning we worked together to create a Rangoli pattern using lentils and pulses, we took part in Indian dance and wore some traditional clothes and had henna applied to our hands. In the afternoon we learnt about the Hindu festival of Holi, why it is celebrated and how. At Holi, people throw powder paint at each other and light bonfires as part of their celebrations.
