WELCOME TO YEAR TWO!!
OUR YEAR TWOS ARE ENTHUSIASTIC,KIND AND DOWN TO EARTH CHILDREN!
Our new topic this half term is castles and the children have started to complete some very good work! This has included learning about the different types of castles as well as all the features that go along with them. The children have drawn both Motte and Bailey and Concentric castles and matched the corresponding labels to each part of the two castles. We will soon be moving on to look at William the Conqueror and how he received this name.
In English, we are looking at "Dragon Machine" by Helen Ward and the children will be writing several pieces of work based on the story.
In Science we will be taking a look into mini worlds and finding out more information about food chains and micro habitats.
We will also be moving onto Young Gardeners and looking at planting, different plants, as well as the process of germination.
