Topic

 

We have been learning about towns and cities. Choose a town or city from anywhere outside Europe.

–          Research what it is like (population, attractions, physical/human features, landmarks etc)

–          You could create a poster about the place or create a fact file.

–          Now make one of Bolton. How are they the same? How are they different?

Science

Science tasks may be emailed as part of their daily learning. This year in Y2 we have learnt about materials, plants, life cycles and habitats which you may want to revise using posters or online learning on BBC Bite Size.

Green Fingers!!

Last week, we started our topic of plants within our Science lessons. We started by asking the children all that they knew about plants. We then decided to do some planting and the children worked in pairs. The children have planted carrots, peas and cress. 

Please at home try and grow some plants with the children. 

Enterprise!

Here is our poster to advertise our lovely lip balms. Y2N are very excited to make them next week and sell them on Thursday. Thank you all so much for the donations, we have collected just about enough to make our lip balm goal. 

Y2N are just asking for any new lip balms to be donated as part of our raffle prize 😀

Wire Superheroes

Yesterday, we started our new art project which is linked closely with out topic all abut superheroes. We started of the lesson looking at why superheroes do certain poses and practised a few of our own poses as a class. We then took some pictures of each other and created our own wire models of our poses. To make our models we had to bend and twist metal wire into the correct shape; thinking about where our arms, legs, elbows and knees are on our body. Here is what we created: 

Next week we are going to add Plasticine to create the idea of muscles. 

How are germs spread?

Today we discussed GERMS! As a class we talked about what we think germs are and where they come from – the children knew that germs lived in their saliva, bogies and their poo! We also talked about how germs are spread and we carried out a little activity to show how quickly germs spread. 

We mixed together hair gel (children said that was the gooey part) and glitter (bacteria) and the children dipped their hands into the germs. They then went around and spread their germs. 

Please talk to your children about germs and washing hands.
