Autumn 1 Week 2 - Week beginning 14/9/20
Design and Technology
This week we designed and made a space rocket.
We began by researching rockets. We used a safe search engine to look at images of rockets and recorded the shapes, colours and features that we liked on these rockets. As a class we produced a list of design criteria and then we each drew our plan for a rocket. We evaluated this design with our partner and checked to see that our plan included all of the design criteria. We then drew our plan again improving the design in line with the discussion we had with our partner. On Wednesday we began to build our rockets, we practised lots of skills e.g. using scissors, different ways of attaching materials together etc..
Finally our designs were finished and we presented our rockets to the class. We talked about how we made our rockets, what we found easy or tricky to do and how we had covered the design criteria. This was the evaluation of our product which we then recorded in our books alongside a photograph of our rocket.

We had PE with Rob on Tuesday and this term we are learning about ball skills.
Rob was so proud of us because of our excellent learning behaviour in his lesson.
Please remember to come to school on Tuesday's in your PE clothes and ensure that you remove any jewellery including earrings. Thank you.
In PSHE the children thought about their classroom and decided to make some rules so they could keep the classroom a happy and safe place to be. We typed up the rules and displayed them in the classroom and learnt our class song with actions to help us remember them.
We also discussed our emotions and feelings. We looked at the Zones of Regulation to see which emotions fitted into which zone.
This week we wished a Happy Birthday to:
and also to the children who had their birthdays in the summer holidays:
Poppy, Samuel and Elijah
It was great to see the children back at school today, the classroom has come alive! They were all so good and enjoyed exploring their new classroom and routines. The children are eager to embrace all of the new experiences in Year 2 and have proved themselves to be very grown up and ready to start our theme learning next week.
