Selby Ahoy!

Posted 22/11/2016

This term our topic has been all about Selby. We have learnt all about our local area using maps to compare how the locality has changed over time. As a class we have studied old and new photographs, compared them and used different words to describe them such as 'past', 'present' and 'future'. With Year 2, we walked into Selby visiting the Toll Bridge, the Park, Selby Abbey, the Library and St. Mary's Church. It was an amazing day, some of our parents shared the day with us too. We found out facts about the history of Selby and important places such as The Abbey. 

In Literacy we made a list of all the materials we needed to make our own boats. Then we made a boat each before labelling the features, followed by writing a caption to accompany our boats. We improved our boats before painting them and compared them to what our friend had made.

We have had a busy half term. After Christmas our topic is 'Santa's Little Helpers', check back later to find out what we have all been up to!
