British Science Week

Year 2 have been busy testing out different materials to see which would be the best material to make a parachute. When Edmund Hillary was busy exploring he may have needed to make an emergency escape so he would have needed a parachute. Which material might he have chosen?

Who am I?

What a great way to start our new topic, People of the Past. The children had to ask questions to try to find out who they were for famous people around now.

Rhubarb Theatre

We were lucky enough to have Rhubarb Theatre come and perform their show 'Sidney's Shed' at Kidgate. The shed travelled through time and the children enjoyed watching the moving visuals, change of costumes and asked some fantastic questions at the end. Thank you to the HSA for funding this opportunity.

 

Robot Toys

The Magic Toymaker asked the children to learn how to program Big Trak. They tried out different programs and made him work the way they wanted.

Volunteering at Spout Yard

Year 2 were invited to help out at Spout Yard Park to clear leaves, plant bulbs and help to get the gardens ready for winter time. The children enjoyed helping out and learnt about planting and caring for gardens too. Thank you to Mrs Jackson and Ms Mackie for your time and expertise.

2HD visit Spout Yard. We planted bulbs, raked the falling Autumn leaves and weed the garden. What a lovely afternoon.

Year 2 Pedestrian Training

Year 2 took part in Pedestrian Training, led by Mrs Hatt from Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership.

The children found out how to cross the road safely, walk down the pavement checking for dangers and signs, to cross a zebra crossing and to cross a puffin crossing.

2HD Pedestrian Training

2HD had so much fun making apple crumble last week. First we had to pick the apples from the apple trees on the field, some were so big! Then we made the crumble topping and everyone had a go making sure it was crumbly, some children used great adjectives like squishy and sticky. Finally. the best part, the tasting! It was delicious and some children that had never tried it before gave it a try.

Apple Crumble

The apple trees in the school grounds have given us lots of fruit. The children voted to make apple crumble. What a great choice! With the help of Miss Hutchinson, the children got their fingers in the mix and made the crumble for the top. It looked and smelt delicious.

Seeing what plants need to grow well

We have been thinking about what plants need. The children have decided for their seeds they need air, water, soil (in this case cotton wool to hold the water) and water. Mrs Davison thought she might try no water, no soil and no light. Who will be right?

Year 2 have had their passports checked, been through the baggage area, shown their boarding passes and boarded the plane to go on holiday. Refreshments were available on the flight and everyone arrived safely.

They are all now excited to learn more about holidays and holiday destinations.

What is alive, been alive or never been alive?
