Welcome to Class 2
You can find out more about our learning by visiting the curriculum section of our website.
The children have had a fantastic week working on their DT project ‘Healthy Eating’. The children looked at sugar content, sorting foods and tasting different food combinations. The children designed three healthy wraps and had to decide on their favourite option. The children made their wrap and evaluated what worked well and what they would change next time.
The children created some great pieces of art work during our Earth Art topic. The children made a ‘pet rock’, a twig structure as well using twigs to create a picture frame. This was then used to frame their image of Springtime.
The children have been looking at the features of 2D shapes. The children understood that we see 2D shapes as faces on 3D shapes. The children used matchsticks to recreate 2D shapes. They were given different amounts of matchsticks and had to see how many of a certain shape they could make. An example, the children were given 15 matchsticks, they investigated and were able to prove you could make exactly 5 triangles.
The children have been investigating stability, strength and shape during our DT lessons this term. The children were given the problem of ‘Baby Bear’s Chair’ being broken and had to look at the best design. The children decided through their investigations that using cylinders would be best because they don’t have corners. We then put our cylinders together as a whole class and the design held 70 books! The children are looking forward to designing and making a new chair.
A new chair for Baby Bear
Class 2 designed and made a variety of chairs for Baby Bear during our DT lesson this term. We also evaluated our chairs and came up with some improvements to make them look nicer and also be more stable…Some of the children would of liked to have made a bigger chair to fit Daddy and Mummy Bear on too. The children gained lots of diamond power when problem solving!
