Class 2 – 11/3/19
British Science Week
All the children will be working scientifically this week.
The main theme is “Journeys”
In Class 2 we will be finding out about the principles of flight .Making and testing paper planes.
Recording observations and planning fair tests. This will lead to a whole school activity on “Flight”.
This year is the 25th anniversary of the Euro Tunnel, amazing facts will be unearthed while the children create a board game based on the making of the tunnel. Huge numbers will be used to find winners. We will compare the journey from France using the tunnel to the method used in 1066 by the Normans.
Flight comes naturally to some creatures. This gives us a reason to study some British birds. The children will create fact files about common birds which they might see in their environment. We will create art-work in 2-d and 3-d.
Small boxes and card tubes are needed for model making next week, thank you.
