    Year 2 are learning to use a template to create petals. Using our own dyed fabric we carefully drew around a template to create the correct flower shape. We will begin to sew the flowers next week!

    Year 2 are looking at the parts of plants. Today we specifically looked at the roots. We took our class spider plants out of their pots and carefully pulled apart the soil until we could see their roots. We found out that roots help a plant anchor itself and draw out water and nutrients from soil.

    We are learning how seeds grow into mature plants. To do this we watched a time lapse video of a seed growing and have now set up our own tank so we can do the same! The seeds are at the very front of the glass so we can observe them as they germinate.

    Year 2 spent time this week learning to identify and name a variety of common plants, including garden plants, wild plants and trees and those classified as deciduous and evergreen. We then went on a plant hunt on the field and found lots of wild plants.

    Computing

    This week, the children have continued to look at different styles in art and how these can be recreated using a programme on 2Simple. This week the focus was pointillism which included a short task where the children had to identify which pieces of art were pointillism and which were not. They did very well.
