Year 2 Common Exception Words List
Class 5 have had a great week. It was No Pens Day Wednesday and we took part in lots of lessons where we could work on our speaking and listening skills. In maths, we created repeating patterns and we explained how we made these with our partners. As part of our South Africa topic, we worked in small groups to discuss, plan and make our own 3D maps of South Africa. Afterwards we worked together to sort the features into human and physical and labelled our maps.

Autumn Term 1 - South Africa
Class 5 have had a busy half term learning about South Africa. As part of our topic and Black History Month, the children researched Nelson Mandela to find out about his life and why he was so important. They worked in small groups to make posters about his life.
In art we explored different patterns found on traditional South African material, clothing and jewellery. We then used these ideas to create prints using different techniques. Here are some of our final pieces of art.
