In Class 2 this week we have been reading the story ‘Bob and the Moontree Mystery’ about an astronaut who makes a surprising discovery on the moon.

Pushes and Pulls

7th February 2019

Class 2 have been making observations about the way things move. They explored the playground environment to identify which objects they could move by applying a ‘pushing’ or ‘pulling’ force.

History Day – The Victorians

20th December 2018

For our history day on Wednesday Class 2 got turned into a strict Victorian classroom! Lots of the children dressed up as a Victorian child or famous person from that era. We had lots of Florence Nightingales and even an Isambard Kingdom Brunel. We also had a visit from Mr Jobson who wanted to inspect the children’s behaviour. The class had fun role-playing as well as making a thaumatrope (a Victorian toy) and printing our William Morris inspired floral designs.

During this week, maths Class 2 have been exploring different ways to collect and record data. We went to Lillie Road to see how many different types of vehicles passed by our school. We recorded the data in a tally chart and later we put our results into a bar graph. We then created our own questions for each other to answer.
