Class 2 have been learning about the Danish Scientist Ole Kirk Christiansen. He invented Lego. Lego is the shortened form of the Danish word Leg godt, which means play well. Class 2 investigated the properties of Lego and spent time discussing why they love Lego so much! Then they asked the question- can we make a Lego car to safely hold an egg down a ramp? They tested out their Lego cars and recorded their results in a table.
Class 2 have been learning about Shrove Tuesday in RE. Then they helped measure the ingredients to make pancakes. After that they enjoyed eating them!
