We use recycled materials to build our own Wacky Races car!

Very carefully we measured and cut our own axles to fit on our cars.

In Maths we worked with a partner to measure different parts of our cars in centimetres.

In art we used different types of materials to add detail to our paintings.

Year 2 International Week, Welcome to the UK and Wacky Races


We painted cityscapes in the style of Lowry as part of our UK project

In ICT we used Beebots to find our way around a map of the UK.

We had to programme the Beebot and write an algorithm to get to a city in the UK.

If the algorithm was incorrect we had to debug it and make the algorithm right!
