Year 2


Last week we made volcanoes and today we made  them erupt! We tested different combinations of ingredients to make the best eruption! We used  tonic water, Diet Coke, tomato ketchup and compared the eruptions ask your child which one was best.   13DF8DAA-C6B6-4A7A-B36D-5C71AC741539 C157E020-1


In year 2, we’ve been learning to lead in PE. We all designed an activity then taught the group how to do it. We made the activity harder or easier as we watched. We learned that leading others can be tricky.  


Today we used different things to dye fabric to test which was best. We used red cabbage, beetroot, squash, tea, coffee and orange juice.


We had a taste testing morning and children tasted foods from around the world. Their faces said it all! Australia- Vegemite Italy- polenta UK- shortbread China- prawn crackers and soy sauce Ghana- jollof rice


Using our loan box from parliament we reacreated the House of Commons today in out big debates. 3 children were chosen at random to bring their bill to parliament to be made law. The 3 bills were – get tough on Britain’s prisons, raise the minimum wage and stop motorcyclists overtaking on roads. 2M


We thoroughly enjoyed our visit from S4A (Science 4 All) today and learned about how to clean the germs off our hands and teeth properly. We loved getting messy making our own toothpaste!
