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!

In English we have been learning about shape and list poems. We have all written our own shape poem about fire using amazing adjectives and super similes! To see more, come and look in our cloakroom.

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!

Great Fire of London: September 1666 - Children's song with words by Al Start


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!
