This term in Year 2, our topic has been 'Where We Live'.
We have explored the different homes in our local area and throughout the world, discussing the materials used and why they are suitable. To investigate this further, some of us carried out an investigation to decide which materials would be best to use on our own Lego houses (we quickly found out that toilet paper is not waterproof!).
In English, we have been looking at stories set in familiar places, such as Dogger and The Tiger Who Came to Tea, and using these to explore using time words to sequence the stories, or adding adjectives to add detail to our own versions of the stories.
We will be soon exploring our own area a little further by visiting Carlisle Castle and Cathedral, to discover more about how the people in our area used to live.
