Year 2/3 Skylark
Spring Term 2018
Welcome back to Skylarks. We hope you have had a great Christmas and are looking forward to an exciting half term learning about Vikings.
Autumn Term 2017
We have enjoyed learning about different materials and the forces we can use to change them. We have explored how friction affects the way a toy car can move and investigated the strength of different magnets.
After our wonderful walks with Puffins and Kingfishers, Skylarks went their own walk around the village to look for places of interest. We looked at "Google Maps" in the classroom, then followed our own printed maps to specific places in the village. We finished up outside this very famous building.
Shadow Play - Investigating our own shadows
On a sunny afternoon we had great fun investigating our own shadows with a partner. We found out that our shadows moved in the same way that we did and that in the afternoon our shadows were bigger than us. We also learnt that when the sun was in front of us our shadow was behind, and when the sun was behind us, our shadows were in front.
A shadow puppet show by Diana of the Black Cat Theatre company made a fantastic start to our Shadow Play topic.
To develop our understanding of the Sikh faith, the year 3s were lucky enough to visit the Gudwara in Bradford.
Basketball Wow day was certainly a hit with Skylarks. We were amazed by the size and skills of professional basketball player and Britain's tallest man, Paul Sturgess!
