Great Fire of London

Year 2 decorated houses in the style of those that were burnt by the fire in Pudding Lane in 1666. We then took them out onto the playground and recreated the Great Fire of London. We watched as the flames took over and destroyed the houses. The children have said this experience was amazing, wonderful, fun and a bit scary to watch!

Spring Term

Discover Project

 

Over the Spring term we will be focusing on our history based discover project with the big question, 'Does being brave make you stronger?' We will be looking at the Great Fire of London, taking part in a day dedicated to finding out more about this time in history, looking at historical figures that showed bravery and other exciting aspects to try to answer our big question.

Year 2 had a fabulous time on their Fire of London Day. They made Fire of London cakes, decorated their boxes in the style of houses from Pudding Lane and enjoyed acting out the events of the fire with the theatre company!
Year 2 faced a fear challenge with three mystery boxes in English. They had to be brave and feel what was inside and describe the mystery. Was it a box of frogs, rats and a slimy bog or something else?!

Mystery Box Challenge

Find your brave!

Year 2 have been finding their brave this week. As part of child's mental health week we have been looking at being brave, what it means to us and how it makes us feel. We watched a video, The Wolf's Colourful Coat and talked about how brave the character Wolfgang was. The children then did some work on what brave new thing they would like to try.

Over the Autumn term we will be focusing on our arts based explore project with the big question, 'Can you create the feeling of Hakuna Matata?' We will be looking at African art and creating some of our own, exploring African dance and other exciting aspects to try to answer our big question.  

                   

Miss Hedges spoke to Year 2 about her time in Kenya and visiting a Massai tribe. She learnt about how they lived and their traditions. We made a Massai tribal necklace concentrating on pattern and colour.

We learnt what it was like to grow up in Namibia from Aliesha's mum. She told us many stories including the one when she walked under a giraffe! The children enjoyed time to ask questions and find out more whilst sketching wooden artifacts from Namibia.
