Buzz Words

Here are the complete list of Buzz Words which your children are learning to spell.

Wonderland Writing

In Write Now Focus Week we made an Alice in Wonderland inspired film and then wrote amazing stories!

Birds Nest Building

As part of our learning about materials, we have designed and made birds' nests in the outdoor classroom using sticks, moss, bark and string. We will see if the birds move in!

Moving Vehicles

In Design Technology, we made cars (and tanks) using wood and plastic. We sawed our own wood and designed our own body work.

Cities of the World Focus Week

In September we had Cities of the World Focus Week. Y2G learned all about BARCELONA. We have discovered that Barcelona is on the east coast of Spain and people there speak Catalan. The children decided to build a model of the famouse Antoni Gaudi cathedral La Sagrada Familia. The cathedral is still not finished having been started over 100 years ago! We also learned how to create bar charts and tally charts based on the goals scored by Barcelona FC's most famous player, Lionel Messi.

Filey Trip

We visited Filey on the east coast! The children have been learning about coasts in Geography. They have learned new words such as cliffs, coasts, landscape and cove. We have been comparing Filey to Kamakura in Japan to see how people live in other parts of the world.
