The children have really enjoyed our talk for writing text this half term - The Manchester Ridge-back. Today they produced their final copy of their inventions. We had a wide range of dragons being invented such as a Snow Dragon, Ice Dragon, Lava Dragon, Flower Dragon and even a Candy Floss Dragon!  Check out pobble for some of 2K's inventions!

The children have really enjoyed our music unit 'Hands Feet and Heart'. They have been playing a short melody on the glockenspiel and accompanying this with a clapped rhythm. 




Tuesday 22nd January 2019

Today the children explored how an axle works using cardboard templates, wheels and a range of materials for axles. They discovered that: 

1. The wheel needed to be attached tightly to the axle and the axle free to turn.

2. The axle could be fixed and the wheels turn on the axle.

See the gallery for some pictures of the children carrying out this investigation.
