Our topic for this half term is ‘Opposites’. We will be thinking about our homes today and comparing them to homes in the past. Our visit to Milestones Museum on Friday 20th April will help us to learn more about this. We will also be reading ‘The Queen’s Hat’ and we will be celebrating the Royal Wedding. This will include finding out who the Royal Family are and how the Royal Family’s way of life has changed over time. In Art, we will use air dough to make artefacts from the home and we will also use collage to design a Royal wedding dress. In Geography, we will continue to learn about the weather and consider how it changes from day to day. In Music, we will continue to learn to play the recorders.
On Wednesday 2nd May we had a fantastic time learning some traditional May Day dances. We learnt a Morris using wooden sticks. We also danced around the may pole- we had lots of fun!
This week we also took part in an Asian dance class. We got to learn some Asian dance moves and watched some traditional Asian dancing. We all really enjoyed ourselves.
On Friday 20th April we visited Milestones Musuem. We had a brilliant time exploring the museum and finding out about how people lived in the Victorian times and 1930's. We really enjoyed looking at the old streets, transport and buildings. Our favourite part was dressing up in Victorian clothes and sitting in an old fire engine. Take a look at some of our photos.
On the Move
As we move into the final term of Year 2, our topic is 'On the Move'. We will be celebrating the local 'Farnborough Air Show' and with this, learning about Samuel Cody and the history of flight. In June, we will be learning about different countries competing in the World Cup and we will have lots of opportunities to consider how to work well in teams. In Science, we will learn what plants need to grow and how different conditions can affect plants. We will also learn about food chains and that some animals eat plants, whilst some animals eat other animals.
