At the beginning of this term we continued with our ‘Crash Bang Wallop’ topic, focusing on Guy Fawkes and Bonfire night. The children wrote some fantastic haiku poems using a range of onomatopoeia, which was then followed by some colourful firework art. As the term has progressed the children have been developing their story writing as they immersed and innovated Little Red Riding Hood, creating their own characters and alternative endings. The children have been applying their taught calculation skills (addition and subtraction) to word problems and 2D/3D shape and their properties. In Science we have continued to look at materials and have conducted some experiments, looking at physical and chemical changes. In the pictures below you can see we have used skittles to show a chemical change. For the lead up to Christmas, Year 2 have been working really hard on their Christmas production, learning their lines, dances and songs. Following on from this in RE we have learnt all about the true story of Christmas and why God sent Jesus to the earth.
