Finch – Y2
Welcome to Finch Class!
Summer 2 2021
This term we have been doing lots of outdoor learning! We have been finding out about different insects, their bodies and their habitats. We have enjoyed exploring our Forest School area to find different insects as well as other minibeasts. We were very lucky to have a visit from Animals 2U South West, where we were able to find out about, look at and even hold, a stick insect, giant millipede and cockroach.
Summer 1 2021
We have enjoyed learning about the engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel. We have found out lots about his life and achievements and especially enjoyed finding out about the SS Great Britain and the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol. As part of our learning, we designed and made boats that could float and bridges.
Autumn 2 2020
Finch Class are enjoying their new topic 'Reach for the Stars'. They started the half term with a day of astronaut training. The children thought about what they already know about astronauts and space and then thought about what they would like to find out about. The children tasted space food and wrote a review for it! They were lucky to have their class teachers dressed as famous female astronauts, Eileen Collins and Sally Ride.
Autumn Term 1- 2020
We are enjoying being back in school, playing with our friends and learning in Finch Class. We have already completed a lot of learning and are really enjoying exploring the book 'Here We Are'. We are now making our own models of the world!
