Old Macdonald had a farm...
...And on that farm he seems to have a lot of fun rides as well as animals. Year 2 had a wonderful time on their first trip as a class. We went to Old Macdonalds' farm in Essex.
Take a look at our pictures. Who can you see?
World Book Day
Year 2s busy time has continued. Today we celebrated World Book Day. Lots of us dressed up in costumes and we all brought a favourite book to school to share with our friends. We had lots of favourites including two 'Daisy' books, 2 'Wimpy Kids' books, and a book about a greedy shark who got tricked by a squid. Perhaps the funniest sounding book was 'I need a new bum'!
In the afternoon we did a science investigation testing the strength of different magnets to help with a puppet show based on the lovely story 'The three billy goats Gruff' and finally we chose a story to listen to read to us by different teachers.
Great Fire of London Day
Our topic this term is Eye on London. The children have been learning all about London and have particularly enjoyed learning about ‘The Great Fire of London’. Today Year 1 & 2 had a Great Fire of London workshop. The hall was set out as Pudding Lane, where the fire had started. There were different activities the children could take part in which included:
Barber Surgeons, Apothecaries, Leather Workers, Chandlers, and Weavers.
While the children were taking part in their activities some children were chosen to act out different parts of the event such as putting out the fire, or collecting and killing the rats. All the children were completely engaged and took on their responsibilities very seriously. They had to be responsible for putting out the fire and pass a bucket to each other quickly before the fire got worse. This was an experience the children will never forget and it helped enhance what they already knew about the fire and also taught them many more facts that they didn't know.
Friday 25th February
Today was Year 2s class assembly. It was so great to see many of our parents in the school building for the first time in ages. The theme of our assembly was bridges and we were able to explain lots of things about bridges in London, read our fantastic stories called 'The Bridge' and show how you can make paper bridges stronger simply by folding up the edges of the paper!
December 2021 - Year 2 have worked really hard with Year 1 to present a super Christmas show called Lights, camel action. Look out for the link to the video we made. We'll email it to you.
July 21 - What a very unusual school year this has been!
Well done Year 2. You have had a fabulous year and you have all made so much progress. I'm so pleased that you didn't let 'lockdown' stop you. You kept on learning all year!

Year 2 have written some great versions of a funny story that they we watched on a video. I will attach some of the finished stories here. There will be more to follow. It's taking me a while to type them all up!
I have made a few changes to some of the spellings, but other than that this is what they children have written and sent me from home. Happy reading!
