Anning’s bonfire party!

As a result of their amazing hard work and perseverance this term, Anning class earned 60 marbles and decided to treat themselves to a bonfire party in the secret garden. We enjoyed watching the flames but our favourite part was toasting marshmallows on the open fire and eating s’mores! Even though we ended up very sticky!

We finished our party by singing some campfire songs.

A big thank you to Mrs Flanagan who helped us learnt all about bonfires and how to stay safe.

Year 2 investigate materials!

This term year 2 have been investigating all the different materials around us. We went on a material hunt around the class room and managed to find items made of:

  • Wood
  • Plastic
  • Glass
  • Metal

We started to notice that they had different properties so we discussed this as a class whilst we sorted them based on their properties.

“I can see through glass so it is transparent.”

“I noticed that metal is firm and shiny”

We have loved working scientifically through careful observations so we challenge you to do the same!

Can you identify an object and name the material it is made of? How do you know it is made of this?
