Autumn Term 2015 2G News
2G have had quite an exciting term! In Religious Education, we have been learning about Hinduism and the festival of Diwali. In October, 2G began learning about the story of Rama and Sita. We looked at the story behind Diwali and what Hindus learn from it. To end our Religious Education unit we had a Year 2 Diwali Day where we made clay divas, decorated Rangoli patterns and made Diwali sweets.
Ella said, “the Diwali sweets were my favourite! They were so yummy!”.
Christiana said, “Mrs Kamdar helped me with my diva. I can’t wait to take it home to paint it!”
In science, 2G have been learning about plant bulbs! We have had lots of fun researching different types of bulbs and found out that some bulbs you can eat! We learned that bulbs can be planted in autumn and that it is important for the roots to be facing down. Hamida said, “I know that an onion is a bulb and you can eat it!”
We planted daffodil and tulip bulbs in our class and are patiently waiting until spring for them to flower. When we planted bulbs, we asked questions about what we wanted to find out from the experiment. We asked, “what will happen if we plant the bulb with the roots facing up?” This was a brilliant question! So, we decided to test it! We planted one bulb with the roots facing down, like normal, and one bulb with the roots facing up! Stay tuned for more results!
