Year 2 Updates!
This term we have been learning about Dinosaurs, it is hard to imagine that they lived so many millions of years ago. We have learned lots of facts and had great fun out on the playground using trundle wheels and metre sticks to measure the size of a Stegosaurus, a Triceratops and a Tyrannosaurus Rex. We are learning about palaeontologists and how the fossils and skeletons they find help us to learn even more about dinosaurs.
We have written stories on a dinosaur theme and we are looking forward to designing and making a dinosaur toy!
In Science we have been learning about the things we need to keep us alive and about the habitats of different creatures.
In RE we have been finding out about the Jewish faith and we enjoyed learning about Shabbat with Jo Elijah.
This term in Year Two we are learning about the Titanic. The children will be finding out facts about the ship and have already compiled a list of questions that they want to find the answers to. We hope to have day later this term when we will encourage the children to wear costumes from the period and we will re-enact life on board the ship. We will let you know more details about this nearer the time. If you have any relevant information, books or resources about the Titanic that you would like to share with us we would be very grateful.
In Science we will be investigating a range of materials, their properties and uses. We will be using ICT to research the events leading up to the Titanic disaster but will also be learning about coding.
PE this term will be on Monday but the children should have their PE kit in school every day in case of a timetable change at short notice.
