Year 2 trip to QMC

On Thursday 8th January 2015, Year 2 went to QMC to study plants.

We went on a trail outside to explore how plants survive in winter.

We dissected a bud to see the different layers that make it up and protect it from the weather. We saw how evergreen leaves are thick and waxy to help them survive the winter.

We examined seeds under the microscope

We planted our own seeds in soil ready to grow in the spring.

Design and Technology Day

This term Year 2 had a design and technology day.

We used the Legend of the Chinese Zodiac, which we had learnt in literacy, as our inspiration. We designed an animal puppet based on one of the 12 animals in the zodiac. We then created our puppets in the afternoon. Luckily, we had lots of kind mums to come and give us a hand! We are very proud of our puppets. Have a look at the gallery to see some of the puppets we have created. 🙂


Year 2 visited Wagamama!

On Wednesday the 5th of November year 2 visited wagamama in festival place. While year 2 were there, they tasted food and weighed ingredients to make a noodles dish, Also they walked in the freezer.

Autumn Term 1 in Year 2

We have been very busy this half term in Year 2!

Our term started with an amazing visit from the Hampshire fire service. We got to ride in the fire engine and even use the hose! We learnt a lot about fire safety and how different things were in1666 during the Great Fire of London.

We also did some drama to explore how we would feel if we had been involved in the Great Fire of London.
