Term 2

Year 2 started term 2 by being explorers! We had an Ariel map and we followed it to find the treasure.  We found 6 bags and they all had information about explorers from the past. They also had explorer’s equipment in them.

In maths we have been finding 10 more and 10 less than a given number. Have a look at some of our work. We have also been investigating 3D shapes. We thought about their properties and if they could roll or stack.

In English we have been reading the story ‘Lost and Found’. The boy sent us a letter asking for our help to make him a boat that was waterproof and that floated. We had to choose our own materials and make one. Have a look at some of the boats we made.
