Year 2 at work

The Great Fire of London

|

Year 2 are really enjoying their topic 'The Great Fire of London'. They have been doing lots of cross curricular writing e.g. diary entries in role of Samuel Pepys, setting descriptions of 17th Century London, letters from Samuel Pepys and non-chronological reports explaining what happened. The children have also completed some d&t work where they made 17th century style houses. 

In P.E the children have been creating dance moves linked to the fire for example, pretending to be the fire and acting as the buildings. 

Year 2 - Ice cream Victorian style

|

The children in Year 2 enjoyed ice cream 'hokey pokey' style just like the Victorians. They thought it was funny licking their ice cream off the greaseproof paper.

Lighthouses

|

The children in Year 2 created lighthouses as part of their 'Seasides' topic. They looked fantastic when they were finished!

Year 2 -Picnic Week

|

The children in Year 2 did a variety of lessons based on picnics at the seaside. They baked cakes in maths, completed tally charts and graphs to find out what drinks the children wanted at the picnic and created a range of different drinks using their knowledge of mililitres to measure the different capacities. 

Maasai Culture - Mutual Respect

|

The children in Year 2 have been learning about the Maasai culture. They have found that it is very different to their own. They have created Maasai necklaces as the Maasai women wear lots of beads to make them look rich.

The Great Fire of London

|

The children have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. They have written diary entries, newspaper reports and letters based on the fire. They have completed role plays to think about how the people would have felt during this event. They have found out about sources and the information that we can find out from these. 

Gymnastics - Year 2

The children in Year 2 have been to a gymnastics competition. They all did really well and had lots of fun!

The children in Year 2 have been learning about position and direction.

The Rosary

Father Ed visited Year 1 and 2 and told them information about the rosary. Father Ed said his favourite prayer was the Glory Be because it is a prayer of thanks.
