In the eyes of God, every child matters, every moment of every day

In the eyes of God, every child matters, every moment of every day

Friday 21st June

What a fantastic week we have had in Year 2!

This week we have celebrated Science week with a whole host of learning linking Science to lots of other areas of the curriculum.

On Monday we launched Science week with an assembly and then had the whole day to conduct an investigation into 'rocket mice'. We wanted to answer the question 'Does the material of a rocket mouse affect how far it flies?'.

The children made rocket mice out of five different materials, and we then tested how far each mouse would fly on the playground. We recorded our results in a table and then concluded our investigation thinking about the properties of different materials and how they would affect their flight.

On Tuesday Father David came into school to talk to us about RE and Science. We linked our Science learning with our topic of Judaism. We learned about Tu B'Shevat, a Jewish festival dedicated to trees, their importance on our planet and how the Jewish faith believe that we should look after the Earth. We linked this with our Science learning where we looked at a range of animals who use trees as their habitats, learned about the different food chains within tree habitats, and we then created a collaborative collage (MASTERPIECE) of a Menorah representing a tree and its branches, and included pictures of the different animals within the tree habitat.

On Wednesday we looked at farming and the Science behind it, as well as looked at a range of STEM jobs associated with farming. The children learned about bees and their habitats and wrote a factfile to present their findings.

On Thursday we had 'dress down day' which the children absolutely loved! The children came in as a Scientist of different varieties, we had some astronomers, paleobiologists, environmentalists, zoologists, doctors, nurses and vets. We talked about the different careers within Science and the children were inspired!

We celebrated Science week on Friday and shared our learning from the week. We have had a fantastic week and the children have worked really hard - well done!

Have a wonderful, sunny weekend.

Best wishes,
Miss Freeman and the Year 2 Team
