Year Two's Aston Hall Trip - London's Burning
The children had a fantastic day at Aston Hall finding out about 'The Great Fire of London'. They got to look around Aston Hall to find out about houses and life in the past as well as finding out about the Great Fire. The staff at Aston Hall were really impressed with the children's excellent knowledge and behaviour. Additionally, the children took part in different craft activities to create a display at school.
Year 2 Science Day - Everyday Materials
Year 2 really enjoyed their Science day this half term looking at different materials. They completed different experiments to find out about which material absorbed the most water. They also had a look at making materials waterproof by creating their own image using candle wax and water colour paints.
We learnt about the artists, JMW Turner and Hokusai and created our own art using recyclable materials. This linked to our Oceans and Seas Topic.
This half term we have been exploring materials. We helped the Three Little Pigs find the most suitable material to make a house.
