Year 2

Term 4 summary:

Term 4 has been such a fun and exciting term. Our topic, ‘What comes first, the chicken or the egg?’ has had a science focus and we have been very lucky having chicks in our classes to fully experience and observe the lifecycle of a chicken. We have really enjoyed watching them hatch, grow and change. The children have absolutely loved it!

We also celebrated Science Week this term and took part in a class swap day, where the children were able to carry out a variety of different science investigations! We became rainbow collectors, explored what material would be best for a ‘sniffly sneeze’ and investigated how fast toy cars travel on different surfaces. The children were also able to attend an interactive Science Workshop with ‘Mr Rocket’ where the children engaged with even more experiments including aeroplanes, rockets and having toilet roll propelled over them! It was great fun!

Term 4 also saw us take part in World Book Day and we came to school in our pyjamas to share and read stories – a big thank you to all the parents and carers that also came along to enjoy some stories with us.

Writing has been superb this term and the children have written a story about Plop the owl who was afraid of the dark. They have also become poets and wrote and performed their own poems about 10 things you would find in an Easter bunny’s basket.

Finally, in DT, the children have really enjoyed learning about different types of mechanisms. They have created their own poster about a chicken including either a lever or a slider on to it ensuring that it has a moving mechanism. They look great!
