OWLS - Year 2

Since returning to school on March 8th, we have been having a lot of fun in class. We have made worry dolls, Victorian peg dolls, planted some seeds, dressed up for Comic Relief and in science we have been designing and making bridges. Have a look at what we've been up to below.

Summer Term 2021

 

The topic this term is ‘The Big Build’ and all other work will be based around this. Children will look at maps of the world and will research famous bridges in all of the continents They will look at different countries, their capital cities, rivers and oceans. They will compare the structures and materials used for different bridges, including aqueducts and viaducts and will be involved in making their own bridges.  They will learn of the different types of bridges and will learn how to identify types by looking at specific features. They will  investigate a range of  bridges and who the architects were behind the designs. In Art, the children will look at  paintings that feature bridges, such as Monet and his famous water lily Impressionist paintings, and be involved in exploring the artistic techniques of such artists. They will use a range of resources to find out about bridges and people involved with them such as Thomas Telford.  In Music, the children will sing songs relating to bridges and add and explore rhythm by using claves and  percussion instruments.
