Autumn Term

Year 2 have kick started the term by looking at famous London Landmarks. The children have read stories and information books about London's famous places and landmarks which has helped the children to create their own information books. The children have also used recycled materials to make models of their favourite places in London.

As part of Computing, Year 2 have been learning to how to use a camera. They have used iPads, digitals camera and camcorders to take photographs of their favourite places, people and things. Have a look at some of their photos

During the second half of the Autumn term, Year 2 turned their focus to India. They spent some time using the internet to research facts about India, finding out about their food, schools, religion, art, animals and much more. The children also emailed other children from a school in India to find out about and compare lifestyles. 

The term ended with an Indian Experience Day. All the children dressed in traditional Indian clothing and spent the day making traditional Indian food, learning to play Bhangra drums and dancing to Bollywood music.
