Useful Year 2 documents
This term we are learning all about the Great Fire of London. See above for our curriculum overview for the term and our knowledge organiser.
In our Science topic this term, we are learning about materials. We fed the materials monster of some questions that we wanted to find out the answers to. We then sorted some different types of materials into those that could and couldn't be recycled. We've investigated all the different materials that we can see around the school. In the last week of term, we'll be making a pirate ship, what materials might we use?
Check out this game which was built by one of our students at home with their family. This developer goes by the name Night Twist, so check out the game and let Mr Patterson and Mrs Jones know what you think. Night Twist was introduced to Scratch at Red Squirrel day by Mr George and Miss Pugh's Code Club stand. Code club is open to children in Year 5 and 6 who would like to improve their coding skills.
Thank you so much to one of our parents who visited us this term to help us learn all about the festivals of Divali and Deshain. We made these beautiful hands after he had spoken to us. They symbolise giving and receiving.
We are learning all about Pirates this term as part of our topic. We launched our topic with a Pirate day where we all dressed up as pirates, made pizza treasure maps, made a rogues gallery of pirate self portraits and a PE plundering activity! Do you recognise these rough, tough-looking characters?
Mr Patterson saying he’s feeling really welcome as a new teacher here at Westbury on Trym Academy. Did you know that he is Welsh? Mrs Jones is really impressed with her new class’ attitude to learning.
