It has been a great start to the year! Year 2 have had a really exciting time with our “inventors” topic. Not only have we been looking at different inventors and their inventions, Year 2 have been able to become inventors themselves!
The children have had great fun making models of their own inventions using junk modelling then writing instructions so that someone else can make their inventions. They have also enjoyed making parachutes based on a design by Leonardo Da Vinci. Firstly, they made them with paper before later using different materials to see which material was the best.
In Maths we have been looking at number bonds and adding. We have also been doing some exciting work with money and learning the time, the children had been working really hard and taking part in a range of practical activities to better understand some difficult concepts.
