This half term Year 2's learning has been based around Space. We have used the books Moon man and How to catch a star to support our story writing skills, planning and writing our own versions. In history we learnt about Neil Armstrong and the first moon landing and we found out all about Tim Peake and his mission aboard ISS. In D&T we created our own models of our solar system to help us remember the 8 planets and their order from the sun, plus the phases of the moon and why they look different. On Zoom we were lucky to meet Mark Thompson a real astronomer who answered all our space related questions. We had lots to ask! It was great when Mrs Wood helped us to set up the school telescope to view the moon. We found out all about stars and the 88 constellations. We drew some and made others out of different materials for our friends to guess. We also painted Cosmic artwork in the style of Edward Belbruno.
