This half term the children will be learning all about Gardens. They will have the opportunity to ask questions to a gardener and to learn about garden tools. They will also use their senses to explore a range of different herbs, draw detailed pictures of flowers and cook.
This half term Year 2 will become 'Street Detectives.' The children will go on a walk around the local area; taking photographs and looking out for different features. They will then be given the opportunity to draw a map using aerial images. The children will also find out about the history of the school. Mrs Warrington will then answer the children's questions as she came to the school when she was a little girl!
We are also looking forward to re-designing our local area! The children will use box modelling materials to design an improved Ilkeston. In addition, they will rename the streets.
Spring Term 1
Our Topic is Dinosaurs
This half term we have enjoyed a visit from some dinosaurs! We met an 8 year old T-Rex called Sophie and a baby T-Rex called Jack. Year 2 also got the opportunity to uncover some animal fossils. Have a look at our photos below.
We had a special treat today! We had a circus workshop this morning. We had a go at juggling with scarves and plate spinning. We tried to balance peacock feathers on our fingers and we had a go at walking on buckets.
