Summer term


Topics coming up in the summer term for Year 2/3 class include.....

Magical Machines

This topic looks at common mechanisms such as levers or pulleys and we work together, using a range of materials, to create models that incorporate these. We consider simple products and how they were designed, suggesting our own improvements. Inspired by the book, ‘To Catch a Star’ we design catching machines of our own. We also investigate the invisible force that is magnetism.


Mini-beasts and more

Using the school garden and local woodland, we will hunt out and study the creatures that live there. We will find out about their adaptations and how they depend on each other to live. We will use our knowledge of these creatures to help us develop computer databases to sort and group information. We also extend our creative talents by constructing large mini-beast models.

Design & Technology Fun

This week we enjoyed an exciting DT session where we designed and made marble games.

We hope the other classes have just as much fun as we did when they have their sessions!

Christmas Singing

We have learnt lots of new Christmas songs this half-term. Please watch the videos to hear us singing some of our songs.

Fire Inspired Weaving

Our topic work on Fire - Creator and Destroyer is continuing this half-term and this week we looked at fire inspired weaving.

We hope you like our creations!

Harvest Festival 2020

As we were unable to hold our usual Harvest Festival in church this year we performed our songs in our classes and shared the videos with each other across the school - please take a look at our class performances below: -


As our theme is Fire this term, we have created our own dragon characters. Check out our water colour paintings of them. We also wrote descriptions and stories with our dragons as the main characters.

The Great Fire of London!

Year 2/3 have been learning about The Great Fire of London and created their own Not So Big Fire of Thurstonland. We could see how easily the fire spread from house to house as they were close together and made of materials that easily burn.
See if your child can remember how the fire started and what people did to try and put the fire out.
