Hello from Year 2. Our activities and achievements at home.

We enjoyed a lovely walk around our local area this week. We were looking for physical and human features around Highwoods Square and Highwoods Country Park.  We also learnt how to cross the road safely using STOP, LOOK and LISTEN. Thank you to the parent helpers who volunteered.

We made kites out of tissue paper, writing paper and sugar paper to see which one would fly the best on a windy day.

We wrapped up boxes to make Tudor Houses and put them in a row to show how close they were built together. We set alight one house and saw how quickly the fire spread especially when there was a gust of wind. We created a fire gap by removing one house which did stop the spread of the fire until the wind caused a large flame which set alight a house on the other side of the fire gap. The wind changed direction which helped stop the fire.
