Red Room – Year 2
Map Making – As part of our Geography topic about maps, we had a go at making 3D versions of maps we were given! It was great fun turning our maps into reality!
Habitat Experiments – We did a little experiment to find out where our minibeasts prefer to live. We gave them a choice of mini-habitats and looked at where they chose to venture to!
Minibeast Hunting! – As part of our new minibeast topic, we’ve been hunting around our school habitat to see what lives there! Look what we found!
Titanic Maps & Timelines – We used our Geography and History skills to learn about the Titanic’s voyage!
Titanic Animations – We used J2e to make some Titanic animations. We really enjoyed pressing play after all our hard work creating each slide.
Time and Tide Trip – We had an amazing trip to the Time and Tide Museum for our Titanic day. We all dressed as people from the time but see if you can spot who was in first class and who was in third class.
Brunel Bridges! – Brunel challenged us to make some bridges like he did! We were only allowed to use paper straws and our bridges had to hold four baked bean tins! Have a look at how we got on!
Victorious Victorians! – At the start of our work on the Victorians, we did some group research on Victorian every day life and presented what we found out to the class!
Tudor Houses Homework! – We had great fun having our very own Great Fire of Thurton burning down the houses that we made for our homework!
Re-telling the story of the Great Fire of London – We used blocks to retell the story of the Great Fire of London!
Castle Homework – We had a homework gallery so we could see everyone’s awesome castle homework! We even invited Yellow Class to have a look and give them a sneak peak of what they will do when they come to Red Class!
Sewing a stitch on the Norwich Tapestry – We were so lucky to have Nik from Norwich Castle come to visit us and tell us all about the Norwich Castle Tapestry (which is based on the Bayeux Tapestry). She told us the story of the castle and then we each got to sew a couple of stitches onto the tapestry. We can’t wait to see it when it’s finished!
Making Castles! – Our topic this half-term is all about castles and why Norwich has a castle. We thought we’d better find out about different types of castles and then had a go at making some in the sand!
