Year 2

Sliding Mechanisms in Maple Class

Year 2 have been learning about sliding mechanisms.  All the children drew the London landmarks using charcoal crayons.  They then printed and stuck pictures of London transport on strips of card to make sliding mechanisms. Mrs Bond & Mrs Woolley are extremely proud of the amazing drawings of all the children.

Google Maps in Maple Class.

Maple Class spent some time this afternoon learning how to use google maps.  They used the programe on iPads to find the way from one London landmark to another.  Some of us also worked out how long it is going to take us to walk from Waterloo East Station to the London Eye next Friday.

Maple Class navigated Bee Bots.

The children in Year 2 were very excited, & had great fun, navigating Bee Bots around famous London landmarks on a map.  The children soon realised it was not as easy as it looked, especially after ‘crashing’ their Bee Bots into famous buildings!

Maple Class celebrate Losar.

Maple Class spent Monday afternoon learning about the celebration of Losar; a festival in Tibetan Buddhism.  All the children had the opportunity to make & taste khapses; a traditional biscuit that is prepared and eaten during Losar.
