We are learning all about the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and Castles...
We have had a super busy time in Year 2! We have continued with our theme about Jack and the Beanstalk and have been focussing on some non-fiction learning about Castles. We have applied our learning about castles in many different subjects;

Geography: Castles in the capital cities of the UK
History: Naming the parts of a castle and understanding their purposes in history
DT: Exploring folds and joins of materials to make model castles
Computing: Using search engines to research about castles and using PowerPoint to create a presentatin of our findings.
In other curriculum areas we have been learning to:
PE: Gymnastics- travelling, balances, jumps and rolls
