Term 1

In 2VT we have been having lots of fun with our India topic so far!

In Geography, we have been finding out about the climate, the different landscapes and their habitats and animals. We compared all of this learning to where we live. We loved learning all about red pandas and we were super concerned about the fact they are endangered due to their habitats being cut down. We wrote amazing newspaper reports to show all we had learned!

In Science, we have been learning about different materials and their properties. We looked at how fabrics are traditionally dyed in India, and we conducted an experiment using different types of natural dyes, such as pomegranates, turmeric, onions, strawberries and bark. We then compared each fabric to see which natural dye worked the best and tried to explain the results.

In Art, we have been looking at Indian Rangoli patterns. We had a go at designing our own!
