Year 2 have been exploring the Great Fire of London this term as part of our ‘Crash, bang, wallop’ topic. The children have been writing their own chronological reports to add to the ‘London Gazette’ class newspaper about the Great Fire of London; really focusing on their pre-cursive writing, fantastic adjectives, punctuation and temporal conjunctions. In the pictures below you can see that the children are innovating a text map and then performing to the rest of the class. As mathematicians the children have been adding and subtracting mentally and learning all about 2D shapes. They have really enjoyed becoming scientists, investigating a range of materials and their uses. From this the children have then gone on to make their own boats and test the strength. They have also been working towards their computer licence, practicing a range of skills to enable them to pass their computing test.
After half term we are going to continue with ‘Crash, bang, wallop’, looking at the gunpowder plot and taking part in the Christmas production towards the end of term.
Year 2 have PE twice throughout the week, outdoors and indoors, so please remember to bring in PE Kits Monday morning ready for the week.
