Chestnut - Year 2
Spring Term 2 Overview
We use our origami skills to make containers to put our egg fried rice in to. We were lucky to have some real Chinese artifacts to look at and draw.
Can you guess how we sorted our shapes?
This week's homework and spellings.
Australia Day Fun!
We had a great day celebrating Australia day with our resident Aussie, Mrs Dickson. We learned all about where Australia is and about famous landmarks. We had fun finding out about Australian wildlife (did you know a kangaroo can't go backwards?!) and the day ended with a fabulous Australian feast provided by our lovely Mrs Dickson. Great fun had by all.

Lots of our work this half term will follow the adventures of Max from Where the Wild Things Are. We have done some fabulous writing and we are concentrating on presentation and spelling.
We read The Day the Crayons Quit and had great fun drawing our own crayons.
