The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Chartwells school lunch company came today and read us the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We learnt about healthy eating and eating 5 portions of fruit or vegetables every day.

Then we made caterpillars and butterflies using a rainbow of coloured fruit and veg. We had so much fun!

The Battle of Hastings
By Year 2

Today we have been using a paper copy of the Bayeux Tapestry to follow the story of The Battle of Hastings in 1066. We had already read the story and watched an animated version on line but we have been looking closely at the stitching on the tapestry. We also recreated parts of the battle ourselves through art work.

DT Evaluations
by Year 2

As part of our design and technology work this term we have been evaluating our castle models.

We thought about the following questions:

  • Did our finished product look like our design?
  • Were the mechanisms successful?
  • How easy or difficult was it to make?
  • If were to make another one would we do anything differently?

We thought you would like to read some of them.

Activity Day

What a fantastic activity day we had last week! After collecting so much recyclable material, we designed our castles using them. Firstly we drew what we wanted our castle to look like.

Then we chose the most suitable materials and got making. We helped each other out when we needed to – Mrs Smith said we were great at teamwork.

Finally we painted out models to give them a really good finish.

We will now be evaluating our finished models, keep watching our blog page to see these too.
