Did you know that an Axel is a central shaft for a rotating wheel or gear? We have been learning all about wheels and axels as part of our Design and Technology unit of work. The children came up with lots of examples of moving objects that have wheels and axels. We went on a wheel and axel hunt around the school and we were amazed with all the examples that we found. The children planned out their designs for their very own Moon Buggy. They thought carefully about what type of axel they wanted – free moving or fixed. They chose from a variety of wheels. After making their moon buggies they tested them out and evaluated their designs.
We have continued with our 5 ways to Wellbeing. This week while completing our Golden Miles, we have been noticing all the beautiful blossom. #Blossom Watch 2021
We celebrated The Power of Funny with Comic Relief and Red Nose day. Everyone looked wonderful in RED. We had great fun listening to each others jokes. Well done to Sienna and Fraser for representing Year 2 in the Whole School Joke telling assembly.
