Wow! What an amazing two weeks we have been having in KS2 (and the rest of the school, but I don’t think there is enough space in the blog to tell you everything!) Take a look at just a small selection of what has been happening in KS2. The MIT-Nord Anglia, Curious Cities Challenge has taken over BSB Sanlitun and the children are totally immersed in their tasks.

In Year Three this week the children have been writing poetry about environmental issues. They began by reading the poem City Jungle and then created their own poems relating to the environmental issues they have been researching such as: traffic congestion and litter. Some children then shared their wonderful poems in KS2 assembly this week!

In Year Four the children have been focusing hard on finding excellent data to back up their work. They have even been drawing  pie charts to show the pollutants entering the oceans! – perhaps when they are done they can come and show upper KS2 how it’s done!

The journey continues in Year Five with the children getting stuck into the their presentations. Tasks have been broken up with each member making a different part, coming together at a later time to put it all together. We have had data sculptures, stop motion animation and junk modelling going on, just to name a few things!

In Year Six we had some children gathering first hand data on littering around our local environment. It was eye opening for them to realise just how much litter there is even in a small space!
