Happy Confident achievers

Year 2 Term 4 2019

 

Our topic for Term 4 is 'Truly Scrumptious'.

We will be reading and writing recipes, making and tasting food, learning the basic principles of healthy eating and looking at where our food comes from.

We will also be developing our design skills by creating our own chocolate bars and packaging as well as adverts and persuasive posters to try and sell them!!

We will be exploring poetry about food, the different vocabulary used to describe it and writing our own stories about Hansel and Gretel.

We can't wait to get started!

We will be starting our topic by looking at chocolate. Click on the picture of chocolate below to watch a video of how chocolate is made.

Year 2 had a fantastic time at the Pet Gallery. We asked lots of scientific questions about how to look after the animals and keep them happy and safe. Thank you to all the parents involved with this fabulous afternoon.

For our Art project this term we are going to be designing and making our own packaging for a chocolate bar.  We went on a trip to Morrisons to research packaging that is already used for chocolates and sweets and recorded the ideas we liked.  We are looking forward to designing and making our own!

In Maths we have been practising our directions and positional language. We had to guide our partner around the classroom using words such as forward, backwards, left, right, turn, clockwise and anti-clockwise.
