Discover – Investigate and have a go

Raindrops Discover Maps & Atlases

Year 2 have enjoyed discovering all about maps this term. We learnt how to use an atlas correctly and found lots of different places on the maps from around the UK. We also discovered how to direct someone using a map, linking our maths and topic learning together. We drew maps and discovered how and why we use map symbols. We are hoping to take a local trip to use our maps in real life!

Rainbow Class Discovering Science

Rainbows have certainly been busy discovering new ideas this term as we completed our first science experiment that linked to our topic ‘Under the Sea’. We went on an investigation to find the best material to keep ourselves dry.

After lots of discussion (and getting wet along the way!) we decided to test wool, tin foil, plastic and paper. Rainbow Class did a marvellous job at discovering the best material and we came to the decision that plastic was certainly the best material to keep us dry.

Rainbow Class are already showing great scientists in the making and we cannot wait until our next experiment….
