We have been busy in Year 2, keeping diaries and recording the growth of our bean seeds. We have been observing them daily and watching them with interest as they have grown into seedlings.
In science, we have learned about the important functions of the different parts of the plant and have even touched upon photosynthesis! This week we are going outside to make studies of the plants in our school environment and will be sketching some of the flowers and leaves that we find.
We have linked much of our science work to computing and have been creating branching databases to sort and classify animals. We have had to think carefully about the questions we ask and have tried to use scientific language.
In English, we have been speaking instructions to a partner and are now writing instructions about how to make an enchanted garden.
We are looking forward to starting our Enterprise project, which is also linked to our work on plants and animals. We will be sending out more details soon.
