Today Year 2 have been turned into Street Detectives! We went for a walk around the local area and kept our eyes peeled for clues to the past. We saw lots of interesting new and old buildings.

We are trying something new! We have set some homework through Education City. You need to log in using your user name and password given out at Progress Day and then have a go at completing the activity we have set called 'Cracking Contractions.' We have focused on contractions this week at school and it will help the children to consolidate their learning! Good luck!

We have started reading a new book in English called 'The Magic Finger.' So far we have found out that the main character has very strong feelings about hunting. We decided to find out more about fox hunting so we used the iPads to research the topic. We looked on the BBC Newsround website and found out arguments for and against fox hunting. Tomorrow we are going to have a class debate to help our understanding further.

Year 2 have had a very busy afternoon! We have been using 'Google Expeditions' to explore different places related to our topic. We had a look round a castle and enjoyed identifying all the different parts. 

Monday 2nd October 2017

This week Year 2 were set a Design and Technology challenge based on their topic 'Towers, Tunnels and Turrets!' They had to make a marshmallow and spaghetti bridge that could stand over a 30cm gap. The children had to think about how they could make their bridges more stable. We spent some time looking at famous bridges from around the world and we discussed the different shapes we could see in the bridges. We saw lots of triangles and squares which gave some of the children inspiration for their own bridges!
