Year 2

In Year 2 we have been learning about Electricity. We visited the Science Museum and explored ‘The Secret Life of the Home’ gallery. 

We looked at a variety of household objects that use electricity. It was interesting to see how the objects have changed over the last 100 years.
 
Whilst we were there, we had time to visit the ‘Flight’ and ‘Space’ Gallery. We saw unique aircrafts hanging in mid-air and a replica of the Apollo 11 landing module. 

The Science Museum is free to visit. Find out more here.

In English we read books by Julia Donaldson. 

We read The Ugly Five and then used adjectives to describe the animals in the story. 
We used the Magpie wall to help us with the vocabulary whilst others used their phonics.
