We have been wonderfully busy in school this week. The children have been learning about 2-D and 3-D shapes and how to sort them using a venn diagram, and we have been making up stories in familiar settings. We have also begun creating amazing models of places we have seen on our holidays. The Year Two teachers have decided that we will use these models to celebrate the end of this IPC unit next month. We shall be making a giant world map outside and the children will place their work on the correct continents!
