Year 2: Weekly Overview

This week we have brought our topic of castles to an end. We have taken on characters from Cinderella and asked/answered questions in our role. We have designed our own castles and said what materials we would use and why. We have also investigated different materials to see if they are bendy, waterproof or transparent. We also used ipads to research a famous welsh castle in pairs. 
Next week we will launch our topic of minibeasts. We will begin by looking at different habitats in which minibeasts can be found. We will also start to look at symmetry too.
Few Important Bits of Information

  1. We have a little request for Muddy Monday, we are going to be bug hunters so if possible, could the children please come in wearing something old in the colours of black, brown or green (or even camouflage). Please do not go out and buy anything new because it is for Muddy Monday and do not worry if they don’t have anything in those colours it is not a problem and it will not stop them enjoying the activity. 
  2. Please remember book bags on Monday
  3. Could you all please check your child’s coats. We have a coat that has got lost today it is a black/grey puffa style it has the child’s name in so if you could all please check we would be incredibly grateful. 
Diolch and have a lovely weekend.
