This page will keep you well informed of what Year 2 are learning each term as well as important pieces of information.
What have we been learning?
This half term our focus has been on vehicles and travelling. We have read books about Mrs Armitage and her crazy adventures and have also watched some episodes of Wacky Races to get inspiration for our own vehicles! We are using our Design Technology lessons to learn all about how vehicles are put together so that eventually we can design and make our own Wacky Racer!
We have used Talk for Writing to learn a poem about Mrs bicycle, which we then changed to create their own. We used similes and lots of super adjectives and verbs in our poems!
We have learned about Henry Ford, the maker of the first car and the inventor of the assembly line. We even had our own assembly line where we created paper racing cars! In connection with our science topic, we have also learned about Charles Macintosh - the inventor of waterproof fabric.
We have been investigating materials in science, thinking about their properties and what they could be used for. More recently, we have focused on waterproof materials and have thought about how to keep Mrs Armitage dry on her travels. We are in the process of planning an investigation to find out which material would be best for making an umbrella for her.
We are learning about different artists this term - so far we have focused on Piet Mondrian and Mark Rothko. Understanding colours has been our main focus - we have learned what the primary colours are and how we can create secondary and tertiary colours from them. We have created a collage in the style of Mondrian and made a 'colour field' painting in the style of Rothko. Our display in school looks magnificent!
