Terrific Tie Dying in Year 2!
We have been learning how to tie dye this term. We explored different techniques and created our own swatches for 4 different patterns. We then designed and made our own t-shirts. Here are some photos of our final pieces!
We had such fun and are so proud of our art that we put on a fashion show!
Class 2 cooking!
We have been learning all about instruction writing in Literacy this term, we used the story 'Oliver's Fruit Salad as our starting point and have now created our own fruit salad recipes!
We wanted to present our work in different ways inspired by the ways you can learn to cook - written recipes, typed recipes and cooking shows!
Have a look at our super work below, why don't you try one of our recipes for yourself!
We are Class 2
We wanted to celebrate all the things that make us who we are and share these with each other, even if we can't spend time with one another at the moment!
Term 3/4 - Explore
'Does where we live affect how we live?'
During these terms we are focusing on a Geographical inspired question, we will be learning about the continents and oceans, and why certain places are hot or cold. We will then be exploring a specific part of the world and looking at how life there compares to our lives in the United Kingdom and why it might be different.
This week we explored pictures of our focus country and thought of some questions we wanted to investigate.
I wonder if you can guess the country or continent we are going to be focusing on!
All throughout the Autumn terms we have been learning woodworking skills. We learnt how to use a range of tools safely including junior hacksaws, hammers, and wood glue. We have been working so hard to create our 1666 houses based on a success criteria set by King Charles II. We painted the walls to replicate the pitch lining and even managed to create a 'thatched' look to our roofs. No 1666 house would be complete without realistic fire effects!
Have a look below at what we have achieved!
Woodwork in Year 2!
This term we are learning how to use a range of tools safely. A few of us have had a go at using saws, sandpaper and wood glue.
We're all going to be using our woodworking skills to create a model house for King Charles II, using material that would have been available in 1666, we can then use our models to discuss why building materials for houses have changed!
Class 2 are Authors!
This week we wrote our own stories based on 'The Idea Jar'.
We then published our stories into little books which are in the library for everyone to read!
Taking Maths outside!
We've been learning how to make numbers to 100, we're been looking closely at the tens and ones in 2 digit numbers and using objects to represent these. In our work below we used sticks to show tens and rocks to show ones.
'Do all changes improve lives?'
Our 'Discover' project this term is focusing around the Great Fire of London.
We are going to be looking in depth at the events of the fire, thinking carefully about why it spread so quickly and learning about how this significant event changed the way we build houses and fight fires forever.
