Year 2

Towers, Tunnels and Turrets

 

During this term we are going to dive back into history and explore the amazing castles that are scattered around the world. We'll learn about the different types of castles and create timelines of when they were built, whilst also using maps to find out where they are located around the world. We'll design and build bridges and use different outdoor materials to create a huge tower! We'll look at lots of non-fiction books to learn as much as we can about castles, whilst also exploring classical tales like George and the dragon and Rapunzel.

Spring 2 

'Muck, Mess and Mixtures' 

 

Let’s get messy! Muck and mess is good! In fact, it’s mega-marvellous! Dive in and get your hands and feet all sticky and covered in paint. Play with liquids, squish some dough and check out the slushiest and mushiest foods. Pour, mix, stir, splat! How does it feel to get your hands covered in goo? Make a wobbly jelly and draw with wibbly clay. Write recipes, instructions, riddles and poems – there are loads of scrummy words to describe messy mixtures! Work with paint and other squelchy stuff to create a new gallery space. What will you make? How will you arrange it? How will the gallery make you and your visitors feel? Don’t worry about the mess – it’ll always wash!

If you go down to the woods today you’re sure of a big surprise!

 

This term we will be heading out into our local environment in search for habitats of foxes and badgers, voles and mice, beady-eyed owls in the swaying tree tops.

We will be learning about and identifying deciduous and evergreen trees as well as matching a leaf to its tree. Can you match a petal to its flower?

Finally we will find out about British sculptor Andy Goldsworthy and create our own art work using materials we find in our school environment. Have a look through his work below, can you identify any of the natural materials he has used?

Our theme for Term 2 was:

Towers, Tunnels and Turrets!

We visited Warwick Castle and explored what it was like to live in a castle with its thick walls and we experienced views from high up in the towers!

We enjoyed listening to and learning many traditional tales, like Rapunzel, who of course was famous for letting her down as a ladder when she was locked up in the castle tower.

We dug deep to underground habitats, where we found out about animals who make burrows and tunnels. It was really interesting to keep a wormery in our classrooms and learn about the life of a worm!

 

What an adventure it has been!

Here are some castles created for homework.

Our theme for Term 1 was:
