Ahoy there landlubbers!
Pirates have landed in Year 2 this half term and Captain Evens and the Year 2 crew are really enjoying finding out about life as a pirate. In English we are looking at the story of "The Pirates next door" by Jonny Duddle. We are thinking about the characters in the story and also writing job adverts for Pirates aswell as instructions on how to be one!
Watch the clip below to hear the story. We love it!
Did you come to our Diwali and Indian Craft Party?
If you did you will know it was a fabulous and very glittery afternoon! We were so lucky to be able to spend a part of the school day with our parents and family friends. We made lots of traditional Hindu and Indian crafts as part of our India theme.
Did you know that 80% of Indians follow the Hindu religion? During this time of year Hindus celebrate the festival of Diwali - The Festival of light. It's a celebration of good over evil and light leading the correct path.
During our craft party we made Rangoli Patterns, Elephant Mobiles, Thali Plates, Mendhi patterns and Diwali paper chains!
The school hall was glittery for days after!
If you were not able come this time, the class and I have decided that the parents were so well
behaved we will invite them back again soon!
Take a look at the pictures below.
Scientists at work!
We have been looking at different materials and their properties. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a house made of jelly, pasta or marshmallow? Year 2 have been investigating!
Feeling musical in Year 2!
As part of our Music lessons this half term we have been learning to sing with an awareness of others. We used the well known song 'London's Burning' to learn how to sing in a round. We had to really concentrate on our own singing and also concentrate on the other parts! We were able to sing in a three part round. We then wrote new verses for the song but set in 1666. Do you like our new verses?
We have also been learning a song that tells the story of the great fire. Check out the link below and sing along at home!
Fire, Fire, Fire!
What a great start we have had to Year 2. To kick start our new theme we created our own mini Fire of London. We built paper houses and when we went to forest school on Wednesday Mrs Ashmore helped us to create a fire.
We couldn't believe how fast the fire spread just like it did over 350 years ago in London. We remembered that the fire started in Pudding Lane and we are really looking forward to finding out more about this piece of British history. Look at the photographs below to see our fire!
