Design and Technology - Puppets 
We have been finding out about Puppets. We found out how puppets were made then we designed and made our own puppets. At our sewing workshop we made glove puppets. We have also been making snowman rod puppets and Father Christmas string puppets. When our puppets were finished we evaluated them to identify things we liked and suggested things that could be improved.

The Great Fire of London 
 
 
This term Year 2 have been learning about the Great Fire of London. The fire started in a baker's shop so we made bread like Thomas Faryner, the baker. We had a dressing up day and burnt down some wooden houses so we could understand how the fire spread. We buried cheese in the school grounds because Samuel Pepys buried his cheese so it wouldn't get burnt by the flames. We also did some science and toasted marshmallows to observe how heat changes things. In Design and Technology we learnt about wheels and axles and created fire engines and carts.

As it is Lent, we have been thinking about how we can grow closer to Jesus and become better people. We took part in a sponsored scooter ride to raise  
 
money for two charities - The Great Western Air Ambulance and The Alzheimers Society. We wore our pyjamas to school to remind us of the sick people we are helping  
 
and enjoyed riding on our scooters around the school grounds.

During Term 6 we have been learning about living things. We went to Slimbridge to find out about habitats. In the pond we found pond skaters, pond snails, sticklebacks and leeches. We visited the amphibian zone where we saw frogs, toads and newts and we held a salamander lizard. In the lakes there were lots of different types of water birds and we had fun feeding the ducks, swans and geese.
