Our trip to Lichfield

User Rating:  / 1

Year 2 have enjoyed a fabulous trip to Lichfield today.  We have learned about Tudor buildings, Erasmus Darwin and Samuel Johnson.  We were lucky enough to visit Samuel Johnson's house and learn all about his love of reading and how he pioneered the first dictionary.  We also learned all about the things Erasmus Darwin invented and about his life. We were then very lucky to have a trip around Lichfield Cathedral with a special member of the church.

Wow!





Inuit Stories

User Rating:  / 1

This week we are writing quest stories based on an Inuit story we have read together as a class.  We have read the story Atuk which is about a little boy who goes on a quest to hunt a wolf.  We have planned our stories based on this and are really looking forward to writing our own at the end of the week.  As we approach the end of our 'Poles Apart' topic we have reflected on everything that we have learned about the North and South pole, Scott and Shackleton and animals living in the polar regions.


Rocks and Soils in Science

User Rating:  / 1

In Year 2 we are really enjoying our new science topic ‘Rocks and Soils.’  We have been to the Phiz Lab and carried out investigations in there to discover which rocks are permeable and which are impermeable.  We then suggested uses for the rocks depending on what we found out.  We all agreed that slate is a good rock for roof tiles because it is impermeable.
