Autumn 19 Gallery and Work
Travelling By Tuba
We really enjoyed playing musical instruments from around the world when we had some visitors in school. “My favourite was the triangle!” said Helena.
We have been looking at materials, their properties and their uses. We deconstructed a nappy to explore the properties of its different parts and found out it needed to be both waterproof and absorbent as well as soft and flexible. We carried out a test to see which materials were the most absorbent and recorded our results in a table. We were pleased that our predictions were mostly correct! We will be designing and making our own nappies soon.
All about me
To start of Year 2, our mini topic has been 'All about me'. We have been thinking about what makes us special and the things we like and sometimes what we don't like. We also talked about what we want to be when we grow up. We painted ourselves and used mirrors to draw a self portrait of ourselves too!
