Autumn  Term 2019

We love reading books in our class library. We have had some super new books. Mrs Downes has found us some new books called 'Royal Rabbits of London',

  

We can't wait to read them.

 

Take a look at some of our fantastic home learning this half term...

 

 A visit from the local fire service ... if they had fire engines in 1666, I wonder how the Great Fire of London would have turned out?

 The Nativity 2019
Born in a Barn
We were part of the Nativity performance 'Born in a Barn' with Reception and Year One. We had a fantastic time performing it, our parents and staff were so proud of us. 

Our book we are reading in Ltieracy is 'The Night Pirates'

 

 

 

 

 

 

Year 2 Class

2019-2020

Miss Plant warmly welcomes all of the children to Year 2.

As the oldest children in Key Stage One, we try to set a good example to the younger children. We are a busy class where lots of creative and fun learning takes place through topic work and subject specific lessons. We are always encouraged to be happy, work hard and treat each other with kindness as Jesus taught us.

 

Autumn Term 2019

 'Bright Lights, Big City'

 

In Year Two, we are learning all about our capital city, London. We have been taken back in time to 1666, where we have used sources to find out all about 'The Great Fire of London'.
We baked bread in the style of loaves that would have been available in 1666. During this, we used our math skills to convert measurements. 

 We have completed lots of History based work this half term, looking into the past, ordering and comparing sources and using these to find out what we think happened in 1666. Below are some examples of our super History work.

 

 As we are enjoying our 'Bright Lights, Big Cities' topic and there is so much to learn, we are continuing with this topic for the beginning of Autumn 2. 

In DT, we have been given a design brief to design and build a brand new London Landmark structure. Miss Anderson was so impressed with our knowledge and now we are able to explain the terms 'stable 'stiff' 'rigid' and 'structure'. Keep your eyes open for our finished products, who knows ... you may see them in London one day!

Our parents were invited to a London Workshop. Miss Plant organised a wonderful workshop which gave our parents the opportunity to understand the History and Geography knowledge and skills we teach in Key Stage One. We had fantastic feedback and I know Year 2 are excited for the next one planned. 

 

 

 

Spring 1 2020

 'Land Ahoy'

 Arhhhhhh me hearties! In Year Two this half term we are taking to the oceans. We are learning all about great explorers of the world past and present, the five oceans, pirates and how to stay safe around the sea. 

 

 We are hooked in our Geography lessons becoming masters of the ocean. We can confidently name the five oceans and recall facts about these such as: Which ocean in the largest? Which ocean is the deepest?

We've then explored the human and physical features and labelled these on our own maps. We found out the difference between a human and physical feature and used this to devise a key and draw our own map.
