New Zealand Class (Y2)
We have had a busy half term in New Zealand class.
In Science, we have been learning about animals and what they need to survive. We found out that most need air, food, water and shelter to survive. We had an interesting lesson learning about fish where we got to touch the different parts of real fish.
In Geography, we have been learning about the four countries of the UK. We found out what the capital cities are, the highest mountain in the countries and famous landmarks. Many of us have visited the four capital cities and we enjoyed sharing pictures of this.
In DT, we have been making healthy wraps. We learnt about the different food groups, tasted different foods and designed a healthy wrap. We then made our wrap and invited our parents in to enjoy them. We had great feedback from our parents on our evaluation sheets.
In computing, we enjoyed learning about inputs and outputs. For our final lesson, we made robots using junk modelling.
In RE, we have been learning about different holy books. We learnt about stories in the Bible and why the Bible is special to Christians. We also looked at the holy books of Islam, Hinduism and Judaism and then made our own scrolls in the style of the Torah.
