Year 2’s have been hard at work learning to tell the time. This is normally very challenging so we encourage ongoing practice at home using both analogue and digital time. This week the children have started compiling their own non-fiction booklets on a polar animal of their choice. This has involved doing research and identifying features of information books. Learning about global warming has really had an impact on the children. During Year 2 we weave a focus on environmental issues through all our topics as we understand that this is of such significance to the new generation. In science we had great fun looking at what materials make good insulators as we wrapped cups of ice and identified which melted the slowest. We all think we could make some very warm polar clothing now!
