This term we have been loving learning about the Tudors! We have discovered that it was quite a scandalous, disgusting time!
In Art, we designed Tudor pattern printing tiles. Next term we will be adapting these designs into a Tudor cushion!
We have also been learning how to draw portraits, and we chose key Tudor figures to draw.
In RE, we have been learning about special celebrations. This links to the British Values of Respect, and Mutual Tolerance. We learned about the Christian celebrations of baptism, and the Jewish celebrations of Bar and Bat Mitzvah’s.
In Science, our topic is ‘materials’. We have been learning about recycling and sustainability.
This term, we have continued with our theme of ‘What is similar and different about India and the UK?
This has linked to our RRS theme of ‘The Right to Learn and Play’.
We made Diwa lamps and attached things that make us feel ‘full of light’, such as family and doing things we enjoy.
We had a visit from Redland Education Centre, where we discussed the Christmas story and made Christmas tree decorations.
We created some excellent information posters about India, and we swapped work with Year 3 to show them! It was great to see each other’s work!
What a fantastic start to Year 2!
We have been really enjoying our topic about India, and we are very excited for our Diwali day!
In Science, we have been conducting a range of Scientific Investigations.
We have been Coding in Computing, using Scratch.
The focus in Art this term has been painting, so we have thoroughly enjoyed mixing and painting a range of Rangoli patterns and colour spectrums.
We are loving hearing each other read stories to the class. Our Author of the Term has been Mick Inkpen, and many of us have kindly brought in his books from the library to share.
