Our topic this half term was ‘Let’s Get Moving’. To finish the half term we designed, made and evaluated vehicles. The children had the brief to make a vehicle that moved out of boxes. They had to think about what the body of their vehicle looked like and how they could replicate these using boxes. We looked at axles, wheels and chassis and how they worked. We also experimented with how we can join materials together using cellotape, masking tape, glue and split pins.
During PE this half term we have been learning gymnastics. We have leant how to balance on the beam, jump off a horse and land correctly with our knees bent. We also learnt how to use the climbing frame safely.
In Year 2 we have started our new book in English ‘The Disgusting Sandwich’ by Gareth Edwards and Hannah Shaw. We began by making our own disgusting sandwich. We collected ingredients from the playground the more disgusting the better. Then we made our sandwich and thought about how we could describe our ingredients using two adjectives.
We even invited Miss Nugent to come and try our sandwiches for her lunch!
Have a look and see if you would try our disgusting sandwiches!
