Good morning Year 2 ,
Thank you to those of you who have sent me a letter, picture or photo to school, it has really brightened my day excitedly opening up each envelope to find out who it's from. I can see that you are really practicing your cursive handwriting still, which will be great for when you're moving up to the Juniors and trying to earn your pen licence!
It’s a shame that we’ve had a change in the weather but remember all our plants and trees need the rain to keep them alive, so we must always be grateful for the rain when it comes. I enjoy walking in the rain and jumping in puddles, do you?

Grown ups – this unit gives children the opportunity to develop their understanding of structures. The exploration of different types of lunch boxes gives children the experience and information to draw on when developing their own ideas. The children create their ideas following the design criteria, given at the beginning of the project, and go on to create models from reclaimed materials. Children gain a basic understanding of how structures can be made stronger, stiffer and more stable. At the end of the unit, children test their product and suggest further improvements.
