Year 2 Topic

Year 2 Parents

As part of our ‘Environment’ topic, the children will be making their ‘ideal’ garden from their designs in DT at school. Over the weekend, if you would like to talk to them about their designs: what ground cover will be, the seating, types of flora, features and equipment they have included.

The garden will be designed by them, and their finished garden will be assembled on a paper plate. We have these and a variety of materials (various paper colours and types etc) in school. However, if you would like to help them collect small boxes for seats, washed plastic bottle lids for ponds, special coloured paper or fabric etc. to give their model garden a more personalised touch then pop them into a named sandwich bag and send in for the construction sessions at beginning of next week.

Please do not send in egg boxes, toilet roll insides and sharps/glass.

To expand their understanding of different environments, if your child would like to make a model or picture to show another environment
(desert, rainforest, mountains or beach etc.) in their free time before half term, we would love to see these brought into school.

Thank you for your help.
