Explorers take Flight!
In Year Two, we have officially begun our first topic of ‘Explorers’. It all started with some big, white, snowy footprints through the classroom. After spending some time looking for clues, it soon became clear that a polar bear had visited us and he had left us a note which said: ‘Please Bring Balloons’. We then went on to explore Lindsay Ward’s book ‘Please Bring Balloons’ during our English sessions. Her use of collaging different textures to create the illustrations inspired us to make our own collaged balloons.
To link with this, we have been learning about Amelia Earhart in our History sessions. We made some paper aeroplanes and shared information about what she did and why she is an important historical figure.
Keep in touch to see where we go next on our adventures!
