Welcome to Year 2
Miss Daley- Teacher Mrs Bull & Mrs Palmer - Teaching Assistant
We cannot wait to step back in time to become palaeontologists and find out all about dinosaurs. What did they eat? How tall/long were they? Could they run or fly?
We have so many questions that we need to find the answer to using books, posters and the internet.
Throughout this topic, we encourage the children to work collaboratively to create posters, fact books, models and fossils all about their dinosaur which they can share with the rest of the class and with parents too.
We'll create dinosaur timelines and look at when their chosen dinosaurs lived.
Through our work in Science, we'll continue to learn more about materials, describing some of the physical properties and finding ways to group them. We'll investigate how materials change shape by squashing, twisting, bending and stretching. Using all of our knowledge about materials and their properties we will design and test our very own cave for Arlo the dinosaur.
