Year 2’s Space Topic

To kick start our topic ‘Space’ we had a ‘WOW’ day where we took part in lots of Art and D&T activities. We had a special visitor called Mario who bought along his inflatable planetarium. Inside, we were able to see the night sky projected on the ceiling. We learned lots about different stars, planets and constellations. Our topic this term is ‘Space’. We’ve had some amazing examples of homework so far. Sophia made some delicious ‘galaxy cupcakes’ at home to share with the class. Aurora made a model of our solar system, complete with 3D painted planets. Aurelia also made a model of our solar system, with a big 3D sun.

During Art, we created splatter paint planets using different techniques such as dabbing, splattering and mixing paint. Of course, we added glitter to make our planets look extra special!  During D.T, we created our own ‘clayliens’ (clay aliens). We haven’t painted them yet, but we can’t wait!

In literacy, we are learning to write instructions. We made our own fruit rockets, complete with watermelon nose cones. We are going to write up our instructions for how to make them. They were so tasty!

Harvest Festival success!

A big thank you to everyone who helped make our Harvest Festival celebration a great success by attending the assemblies, donating food or purchasing goods from our fresh produce sale. We managed to raise a total of £124.50 for Save the Children and all non-perishable foods were collected by North Bristol Foodbank to be donated to families in need across the local area.
