Summer 1 Half Term Information 2021

This half term, Year 2 have been very busy with some very exciting activities.  To kick start our farm to fork topic we had some fertilised eggs delivered, which we enjoyed watching hatch into chicks.  It was a great opportunity to learn about life cycles and we asked the very important question of which came first, the chicken or the egg?  As part of our PHSE and Science, children learnt about how to keep our bodies healthy.  Children designed their own plate of food, gave advice to others and wrote explanation texts sharing the importance of eating right, sleeping enough and exercise.  During international week, children had a range of experiences and especially enjoyed the Brazilian dance workshop.  It was lovely to see and hear the children sharing their knowledge of culture and language. At the end of the half term the children loved participating in STEM week.  They joined in with an range of activities including making a structure from spaghetti and marshmallows and designing a new innovative product for the future.
