Year 2 Work

Autumn 2

Titanic

The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning facts about the Titanic and have enjoyed finding out more information in their computing sessions. They have asked really insightful questions throughout the topic and their home learning projects were fantastic! They have enjoyed acting out being crew members on board the Titanic in their class role play areas.

To help bring the topic to life, the year 2 children visited the Sea City Music. They were able to dress up as a passenger on the Titanic, steer the ship, become a crew member and look at real artefacts.

      

      

We also had a dress up day, where from the morning; the children became passengers on board the Titanic where they were greeted by the Captain and his crew. They were given a ticket and were shown to their cabins. Throughout the day the children took part in many on board activities.

In fox class they were partnered up and they took part in a waltz dance class and they took part in a ‘Strictly ball room’ dance off.

In Badger class the children were invited into the first class dining hall where they learnt how to serve the food and which knife and fork to use. 

 

Autumn 1

Hocus Pocus

Visit to the forbidden forest…..

In September ninety inquisitive children, cautiously crept through the forbidden forest in search of a magic potion that would mend a magical broom. All were shocked to find an ancient, friendly witch amongst the trees, who was in desperate need of help to find magical ingredients to undo the deadly spell and help her find her way home.

     

We had a great time mapping our way to the common in search of the witch. We used our senses to describe the mystical setting, wrote instructions to make our deadly potions and finally wrote our own magical stories about a magical mistake.

      

The dress up day was a great success and the children enjoyed being witches and wizards for the day and sharing their magical stories.
