As part of our ‘Crash Bang Wallop’ topic this term, the children have made a fantastic start as they have begun to learn all about the Great Fire of London. In the pictures below you can see the children enjoying a Jackson Pollock inspired art lesson, as they created splatters of paint to represent fire. The children also created Tudor houses to place upon their spatter paintings to recreate the houses that set on fire. Through topic the children will continue to engage in a range of activities all about the events of the GFOL, what it was like to live in 1666 and investigate the reliability of the materials used to make buildings. After the long summer, in English we have been recapping the use of capital letters, full stops and neat handwriting. As the term progresses the children will go on to produce newspaper reports and diary entries all about the Great Fire of London. In Maths we have started off looking at number and place value, looking at greater than/ less than and ordering numbers.
Home Learning will be sent out on a Friday, to be returned the following Wednesday. Please make sure to read with your children as often as possible, practice spellings and their cracking number facts!
Year 2 have PE twice a week, indoors and outdoors, on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please remember to bring in PE kits Monday morning and leave at school for the rest of the week.
