Our topic for term 2 is Space. Look at all the things we have been doing!

Learning about animals

In Term one our topic was about animals. We did lots of learning, including some visits.

We learned lots in term one.

 

 

Visiting Lunch Club

We went to Lunch Club to interview them about their favourite toys. We have been learning about questions and using question marks so we made our own questionnaires. P2 and 3 even learned how to create a table in Word and made their own.

Lunch Club were really interesting and we enjoyed learning about how the toys were different in the past.

Toys

Our new topic is about Toys.

We have been playing with the toys we already have and making up our own toy worlds.

We are learning the names of some toys in French.

Our new role play area is a toy shop. In maths we have been learning about money so that we can use our maths skills in the toy shop.

Japan

We have been learning about Japan.

We found out that Japan has Earthquakes and Tsunamis. We made a model tsunami and tried to stop the house being washed away.

We learned what we should do in an Earthquake.

We built our own houses that could withstand an Earthquake (or Miss Clements shaking the tray...)

We worked in pairs to tell our own kamishibai stories.

Our new furniture!

We are very excited - we have new table and chairs! 

Balfour Castle Trip

We went to Balfour Castle. It was a very snowy day! We had a great visit, and thanks to Sheila for coming with us and Elodie for showing us round.

Making our own castles

We have been making our own model castles.

Dragons

We have been playing some phonics dragon games

We have been experimenting in science with what happens when things are heated (or breathed on by a dragon).

We compared bread and toast to see how it changed.

 

Castles

We have a castle in our classroom!
