Year 2 have had a great half term settling into Mrs Cowin’s and Mrs Kelly’s classes. We have been learning how to write traditional tales and had a great morning acting out a scene from Little Red Riding Hood (Look out Hollywood, here we come!).
The Year 2 Team
In Science we have been investigating habitats. During our lessons we conducted an experiment to see how penguins keep warm. We found out that they have oil on their feathers to keep them waterproof. It was exciting seeing how oil and water do not mix. We also looked at micro-habitats outside, it was great fun finding slimy worms and pretty ladybirds in the soil.
During art week we studied the work of Lichtenstein. We looked at his art work and created our own portraits using Ben Day dots and explosion words. It was fun using paint and cotton buds to create our master pieces and soon our art work will be included in a whole school gallery!
