Spring Term 2017
Our new topic is called 'Terrific Timperley!' We will be learning about the geography of Timperley Village and also what makes Timperley a great place to live. We will also be finding out what Timperley was like long ago! In We will also be learning about the work of the great artist Lowry and hopefully, we will produce our own 'Little Lowry' pictures! In science, we will be learning about different materials and their uses. Towards the end of the term, we will begin a new topic about seeds, bulbs and plants.
Thank you to those family members who were able to help us to celebrate our class assembly on 20th January. As I realise that it was not possible for everyone to come, please enjoy the photos below. The children were brilliant and I was very proud of their performance!
Marvellous Materials Challenge!
In science we learnt about the properties of different materials. We were given a challenge to make a bridge from eight pieces of A4 paper which could hold the weight of a toy car. The bridge had to be at least 40cm long and could not be fastened down at the ends. We worked in small teams. It was quite tricky but we were very proud of our bridges!
In Maths we have been learning about capacity. We carefully followed a magic spell to make Mr Linnett disappear. All that was left were his shoes, his tie and his jacket! Mrs Marlow was very pleased! Fortunately he re-appeared!
Next we devised our own magical potions using ingredients such as 'dragon's blood' and 'fairy dust'! Each potion had to be exactly one litre.
Year 2 Multi-Skills Festival
Towards the end of the term, Year 2 took part in a 'multi-skills' sporting event with Year 2 classes from other schools at Altrincham Leisure Centre. We had lots of fun participating in the various activities which included archery, golf and racing through tunnels! A big favourite of ours was playing balloon volley ball! A big thank you to those parents who accompanied us!
