On Monday, we enjoyed a History morning learning all about The Great Fire of London. We worked in groups to recreate the timeline of the event, including key facts and some fantastic pictures!
This week we learnt all about Remembrance Day and World War 1. We did some baking using a wartime recipe following ration requirements! We had lots of fun baking together!
On Friday, we had a special whole school assembly where we performed some wartime songs we have enjoyed practising this week and proudly wore the poppies we had made together.
Before half term, we had a special Halloween day. We wrote our own magic potions in the morning for lots of weird and wonderful things! We did some Halloween maths, using shapes to create pumpkin faces and even decorated some cakes as spooky Halloween creatures and characters!
In the afternoon, we had a party with dancing, games, pass the parcel and we even ate our cakes! We had a really fun day!
Today we celebrated the Harvest festival as a whole school. We performed the song we have been practising called ‘Pumpkin Head’ and enjoyed some Harvest bread as a class.
This week Year 2 went to the woods, to learn all about the life cycle of a frog! As a class we had to search to find the different parts of the life cycle to put back together. Then we made our own life cycles of a frog, using things we could find in the woods.
In Year 2, we have been learning how to read and make a map in Geography. We followed a blank map around the school and completed it, by writing the number on each rocking horse’s location. We really enjoyed this activity and we worked together within a group to make sure our maps were accurate!
During our P.E dance lessons we have been having a go at dancing like a puppet! We have been listening to different music very carefully, this helps us to understand when we need to start or finish our dancing, or when we are working in partners, whose turn it is to lead.
Look at some of our excellent dance moves!
