Summer 2 Mini-Mission
Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside
In Design and Technology we all designed and made a new puppet for a Punch and Judy show. We looked at lots of puppets first to see how they worked and how they were made then we designed a new character for the show. We practised different joining techniques before choosing our favourite technique to make our own puppet.
In Science, children will learn about animals and their habitats. In History, children will learn how the seaside has changed over time. In Design and Technology, children will design and make a hand puppet using textiles and in Computing, children will learn about coding.
On immersion day we talked lots about the seaside then we made seagulls, windmills and even rolled our own seaside rock to go in our shop!
Summer 1 Mini-Mission
In Science, children will learn about plants and habitats through scientific investigation. In Geography, children will identify seasonal and daily weather patterns and how to use directional language. In Art, children will learn how to weave using natural materials and in Computing, they will learn how to code.

Spring 1 mini-mission
Lights, Camel, Action! by Year 1 and 2.
Sadly, after all our hard work preparing and practising, our Christmas play - 'Lights, Camel, Action!' had to be cancelled, but we decided to perform our songs for a video so that we could share them with you. We hope you enjoy listening to them and joining in!
We hope you enjoyed listening to our songs and that you have a wonderful Christmas with your families.
Merry Christmas from Year 1 and 2 and all at Racemeadow.
