Term 1 Week 7

Song of the week: Nothing's Real but Love - Rebecca Ferguson

This week we rounded off our Globe Trotters topic by designing the ultimate vehicle to travel to Australia. We used junk modelling materials to make our models and learnt some top tips for joining parts together. Have a look below at our fantastic creations!

Term 1 Week 6

Song of the week: Ain't No Sunshine - Bill Withers

We've had another great week in Year 2! In  Maths, we continued to look at adding three numbers but particularly thinking about which known can help us. For example,  2+7+8= ? We know that 2+8= 10 so all we need do it 10+7. In English, we explored non-fiction texts. We looked an examples and highlighted the title, introduction, subheadings and facts. Later in the week we wrote their own non-chronological report for a Go-Kart! 

In topic, we thought about possible positives and negatives for travelling to Australia by plane (like Amy Johnson), by camel (like Ibn Battuta) and by boat (like Christopher Columbus). This will help us next week when the we make the ultimate vehicle to travel to Australia! We can choose to make a land, sea or air mode of transport but it must be fit to get to Australia. Check out this video which describes different modes of transport. 

In Art we continued to use our new found line skills to draw the texture of different soft toys. In RE, we had loved loving about Islam and this week we looked at the different features of a mosque and the important role that they each play.
