Question 2 – In October, we went on a trip to Alexandra Palace and played a game with a bucket. What terrible thing happened to Alexandra Palace just two weeks after it was first built?


Question 3 – Our first science topic was about living things and their habitats. We looked in the learning garden and found lots of microhabitats. We found lots of worms hiding under the artificial grass. Why were they hiding there? Give me one reason.


Question 4 – In November, we used metre sticks in our maths lessons to learn about length. How many centimetres are in one metre?

Question 7 – At the Christmas Lunch, which staff member was dressed up as Santa Claus?


Question 8 – Last year we learned a lot about Walter Tull, a local hero who played football. He was also the first black man to achieve what rank in the army during World War One?

Question 15 – We carried on learning at home. In April, I showed you a picture of a sheep and it’s baby. What is the name of a baby sheep?

Question 17 – How many different countries make up the United Kingdom?


Question 18 – Lots of you logged onto Times Tables Rockstars because it was important you knew your 2, 5 and 10 times tables before the end of Year 2. However, it is important you know your inverse facts too. What is the inverse operation for multiplying?


Question 19 – In June and July, we learned reading in a different way, by watching ten episodes of Through the Dragon’s Eye. Why did Pelamar need the help of Amanda, Scott and Jenny to fix the veetacore?


Question 20 – Our last geography topic has been about the seaside. Look at the picture. If you see these two flags on a beach, what must you do?

    Good question Aaron! I’ll be going to the seaside, I have family down in Devon and we will be visiting the quietest beaches in the area, as well as quiet beaches in Cornwall. I think my favourite character is Boris. I’m choosing Boris because he grows a lot during the story. He learns to read, he becomes braver and he learns to be more responsible. Plus he likes cricket and I enjoy a bit of cricket!
