Welcome to year 2!

 

Aliens

This term our topic is 'Aliens!'. It is a science based topic focusing on what humans and plants need to survive. We will be looking at why plants can't grow in space and making our own cress head aliens. 

 

Also in science we will be hatching chicks! We currently have 10 eggs in the incubator ready to hatch in the next couple of days. We will be observing the eggs and recording their progress. Update coming soon!

 

 

All ten eggs hatched!  

 

 

Our story this term is the story 'Beegu' about a sweet little alien lost on Earth who is trying to find her way back home. We will be using Talk for Writing to imitate, innovate and invent a new journey story.

In P.E. our focus will be ball skills and team games. Lessons will take place on Tuesday (inside) Wednesday (outside) each week. Children must have a change of clothes e.g. shorts/leggings, t-shirt and trainers.
