Topic Overviews



KS1 Sports Day
The Children thoroughly enjoyed their sports day. Everyone ran, jumped and balanced really well. 


Duxford Air Museum
Year 2 had a great trip to Duxford. We saw different models of Spitfire and discussed the design ideas. We also found out a little more about The Battle of Britain. We loved the Blackbird and found out why this plane was famous - what an incredible shape too! We went on board the Concorde and enjoyed finding out about the test flights from the member of staff - we even discovered that he went to Queen Edith when he was a boy! Of course the interactive flying area was great fun, but we did see how hard it would be to fly a plane. There was also some very old film of the Wright Brothers and their early gliders and aircraft. The lunch was great and our journey back on a double decker bus was totally exciting!

Minibeast Hunt
2.1 have been on a habitat and minibeast hunt on the field and wildlife area as part of our "Nature Detective" topic this half term.
We really enjoyed finding some newts under a damp log and used magnifying glasses to get a close up look. We also noticed ants and beetles living under rocks. Three spiders were spotted on the bark of some trees and when we looked carefully we saw their webs. There were also flies and ladybirds galore, not to mention a dead bee, which did worry us for a bit!




 Year 2 Writing Club
This term the Y2 Writing Club has had a lot of fun exploring different genres. They have written original fairy tales  with exciting openers, descriptive non-fiction where they developed a sense of detail and are now turning their hand to poetry. They have been honing their editing skills and are constantly challenging themselves to think of exciting vocabulary. Ms. Clifford says "well done and congratulations on your persistence, creativity and hard work."

2.1 made potato latkes as part of their Judaism topic. Jewish people make them during the festival of Hanukkah! The frying element reminds them of the miracle of the oil in the Hanukkah story.




As part of our High Street Topic we acted out being in a Library.




We made numbers in different ways.




Mahs Balancing
We used balancing to show that the equals sign means the same as.




Look at our sketches! We looked carefully at the shape of the leaves and used shading to show light and dark tones.
