In the last few weeks we have been learning about the Great fire of London. We have written non-fiction texts explaining what happened during the fire as well as writing diary entries as Samuel Pepys. One morning we were very lucky and were visited by Samuel Pepys who told us exactly what happened in London during the fire.
In DT we have been looking at winding mechanisms. We began by experimenting with the resources to see if we could create a working mechanism. After we designed our own toys in our books, thinking carefully about the resources needed and how the final product would look. Then we started the process of creating the structure for the toy, our character and the mechanism before putting them together. Finally we reviewed our product by writing one thing we were very proud of and what we would have done next time to make it even better.
Year 2 have been finding out about Harvest festival in RE. We followed instructions to bake our own bread and shaped it into different symbols! We had great fun making the dough and baking the bread. It looked and tasted amazing!
Mrs Hone made a special harvest loaf which is a symbol of harvest festival in churches.
We were luckily enough to have a taste of the harvest loaf! Yum!
