Termly Information Autumn 1 2019

This half term, Year 2 have had a great time learning about Isaac Newton. We visited his birthplace, Woolsthorpe Manor and even made and launched rockets that tested one of his greatest discoveries, gravity! Sue, from Tattybumpkins came into school to share more information about Isaac Newton. During the workshop we used Yoga positions to represent some of his greatest discoveries and inventions. We wrote fantastic biographies about him and the famous author, Roald Dahl. As part of our science topic, Living things and their Habitats, the children have explored the habitats and micro-habitats around Cambourne whilst on a nature walk. We found creatures big and small in the woods, the lake and in the grassland. It was so exciting to celebrate the schools 20th birthday. We all had fun learning the song, partying and finding ways to give back to the community. We hope the birds like the feeders we made for them.

Children’s comments about their learning:
 

“If there was no gravity the planets would fall down.”

“Isaac Newton was born on Christmas day!”

“I’m looking for fish in the lake, but I’ve not seen one yet.”

“Birds eat seeds and worms, they are omnivores.”
