Inventors and Inventions

We have embraced our new topic of ‘Inventors and Inventions’ this week.

We have explored the history of Lego. We now know when, where and who created it and can explain the story behind it’s invention. 

In History, we are looking at key inventions over time….. what better place to start than with the wheel. We found out the wheel was invented in Mesopotamia 6000 years ago, we thought of as many modern uses for the wheel as we could – there were ALOT ranging from ferris wheels to scooters.  

We have been busy learning our 2 times table in Maths this week and perfecting our multiplication and division skills by transferring our knowledge to answering word problems.

In English, we have been watching an animation called ‘The Shirt Machine’ to inspire our writing. We delighted in each creating a unique shirt that had a special function – we had an edible shirt, a shirt that plays musical instruments and a shirt that would hypnotise your parents to think it was Christmas Day every day and many more…..

Year 2’s have spellings to learn at home this week – please check book bags! There will be a spelling test each Tuesday.

Please read with your child as often as you can at home (and write in their reading record). This is the most important way you can support your child at home!

Learners Class love to learn!
