Spring Term 2 - Nurturing Nurses
Nurses and Doctors:
This half term we started our topic by role playing nurses and doctors to understand how they treat patients. We learnt about injuries and medicine and the role of doctors and nurses.
In English we have been reading Flat Stanley. In the story Flat Stanley becomes a kite so we followed instructions independently and created our own kite.
In science we have been learning about plants.
We put bean seeds in a zip lock bag and watched them grow shoots and roots. 
Computing:
We have been following an algorithm (set of instructions) in order to create different shapes. We then created algorithms for our friends to follow.
 
Art and DT:
In DT this term we have been exploring the work of Sarah Symes, a textile artist. She uses different textiles to create landscapes. 
The children used her to inspire them to create landscapes of London using cotton, sewing and gluing. 
They look amazing! The children showed fantastic resilience.
Spring Term 1 - Brilliant Britain
We started this topic exploring the countries in the United Kingdom, using pictures, maps and non-fiction books.
In English the children wrote a story about they journey. We wanted an audience to share them with and we wanted to go on a journey around our local area. So we decided to walk to St Levan's Park to meet with the Year 2 class from Morice Town and share our stories.
PE - Cricket lessons from a Coach
We have loved our cricket lessons this half term!
In English we wrote Fact Files about our school and also shared those with the Year 2 at Morice Town. This time they visited our school! We shared scones, played together, gave them a tour of our school, and shared our fact files.
Autumn Term - Fire, Fire!
September 2019 - Building Fires and Toasting Marshmallows
 
We started the term by making our own fire and toasting marshmallows. This helped us to see what fire looked like, but also what a fire smells like. 
12.11.19 - The Fire Station Came to Visit Us!
 
We learnt about how to be safe and what to do if there is a fire. 
We also got to look at the fire engine and squirt water.
26.11.19 - Visit to Camels Head Fire Station
 
We walked to the fire station and then we got to go inside! We learnt about what it is like to be a fire fighter today. We also compared fire fighters from today to fire fighters from 1666 during the Great Fire of London.
 
We got to see all the different vehicles and equipment they use, the uniforms they wear, and looked around inside the station. 
 
Also, we were able to look at the fire engine, hear the siren, sit in the fire engine and use the hose to squirt water onto the building. 
 
We had a brilliant time and learnt a lot!! 
11.12.19 - Thomas Farriner Day 
 
We spent the day tasting, designing, making and evaluating bread. 
 
We had a visit from Thomas Farriner. We took the bread home for our families to taste.
Artwork from our Great fire of London Topic: 
We have created pictures by mixing colours and using charcoal. We have also created 3D houses with our parents in school. 
Science - Autumn term
In science this term we have looked at materials, we investigated which materials were waterproof. 
Recreating the Great Fire of London:
We made paper models of the houses in the Great Fire of London, then burnt them to recreate the Great Fire of London.
