The Year 2 children spoke of their experiences on various forms of transport from bicycles to helicopters, boats to hot air balloons. We also discussed the forms of transport we would like to use in the future, including rockets and motorbikes.
As an introduction to the topic, the children in the Year 2 classes brought in photographs of the various transport they had used and presented them to the class, sharing what they knew about them, what they liked about them and where in the world they had used them. The children then went on to think about how different forms of transport move.
In their Art lessons they created futuristic chalk drawings of moving cars, aeroplanes and bikes before developing their sketching skills by drawing a picture of Mr. Aryiku’s bicycle.
Next week will see the Year 2 children incorporating their transport topic into Maths as they investigate the different transport forms seen in our local area and begin to consider how they can represent this.
With an exciting trip coming up, the children will continue to learn more about the different forms of transport that exist today and how they have developed over time.
