SCIENCE WEEK 2019: Erupting Volcanoes
We used water, food colouring, bicarbonate of soda, washing up liquid and vinegar to make our own volcanoes!
The acid in the vinegar and the alkali in the bicarbonate react together to form carbon dioxide. The washing up liquid is there to catch the carbon dioxide and show it to us in the bubbles.
Bow Arts came into school to work with Year 2 today. We are going to be making a piece of art to go in the playground to remind everyone about how to be a good friend. Today was the first day where we learnt how outside art is planned and created. We designed a piece of outside art and made a mock up to see what it could look like if we really made it.
We hope you like them!
We used letters to create words we associate with friendship. We will be making some art to be displayed on a wall in the playground and this activity helped us to see what it could look like.
Which word do you like best?
British Film Institute Trip
Today Year 2 travelled to London's Southbank to the BFI.
They participated in a workshop where they were taught how to draw Mickey Mouse and how to predict what might happen next in some short films.
The day ended with a showing of The Gruffalo, which was really enjoyable!
Remember to ask your children about it and what they enjoyed the most...they could even teach you how to draw Mickey too!
Back in time Day
Our topic this term has been Polar Lands. We have learnt all about Emperor penguins, Captain Scott and Tom Crean on the Terra Nova, Shakleton on the Endurance and their expeditions to the South Pole. We also learnt 'Ponko and the South Pole' story off by heart.
For Back in time Day we dressed up as explorers, sailors or polar animals.
We recreated Christmas on the Terra Nova. We took our chairs outside and made a galley, where the sailors ate their food. We had warm tomato soup and a chocolate bunny, just like Tom Crean.
We sang 'What shall we do with the drunken sailor' to keep our spirits up in the cold wind!
We played North, South, East, West and Starboard, Port, Helm, Rear. George, Salmah, Lidya, Shiya, Jake, Kerron, Ava, Haroon, Theo and Joshua won the game!
We all felt excited, even though we were as cold as the Antarctic ocean!
We hope everyone had a good summer. We are looking forward to spending a fun filled year with you all!
Our first topic is all about conservation and how we can help the world.
See if you can join us in helping to save the world!
