On Friday the 28th March, we had a wonderful concert to celebrate mother’s day. Year 2, and all the other year groups throughout the afternoon, all sang a song for the Mum’s of Even Swindon. Year 2 sang “Isn’t She Lovely” and some photos of the event can be seen below.
This week in Year 2, we all had a day on building polar explorer rovers out of lego. To begin with, we learnt about the polar explorers and the Halley VI Research station in Antartica. We then learnt why they might use robots to help them with their research. Then, using the Lego WeDo kits, we followed instructions on how to make the polar explorer rovers. Then, using their sensor and programming them using coding, we tested to see how far away it had to be from an object before it detected it and stopped. The children loved making and investigating with the robots and had such a fun day doing so.
This week the whole school have been taking part in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) week. Year 3 have been dissolving seashells using acid, Year 2 have been investigating and making rockets and Year 6 have been dissecting hearts! There are lots more activities to come.. watch this space!
Year 2 have worked really hard this term and showcased their learning through a fantastic assembly in the form of a play; they performed The Jungle Book. Whilst also seeing some great costumes, dances and heard some fantastic singing, they also gave us facts on the various animals and wildlife you might find in a jungle.
