Year 2 recreate their brains, in creative ways!

Year 2 have been learning about the different parts of their brain and the jobs they perform. The children created and labelled their brains using different mediums – rocks, coral, leaves, paper, etc.

The brain guides everything that we do: our body’s movements, our decision making, and our emotions. Did you know that we have the power to make our brains stronger every day?

Year 2 watched this video to learn about these different brain parts.

Reading and pronouncing some of the brain parts is tricky:

  • cerebral Cortex (say: suh-REE-brul cor-tex)
  • cerebellum (say: sair-uh-BELL-um)
  • amygdala (say: uh-mig-du-lu)
  • hippocampus (say: hi-po-cam-pus)brain stem.


Scientists are learning more and more about the brain every day. One of the most important things they have discovered is that it can stretch and grow throughout our entire life… we call this Neuroplasticity.

Taking on challenges can grow and strengthen our brains. We really do have the power to make our brains stronger every day. Learn more about this in the video below.
