We have been very busy planting sunflowers and recreating the famous picture by Vincent Van Gogh - make sure you take a look at our display outside the Year 5 classroom.
This half term, we are learning about: Materials and The Worst Witch!
We began this half term by thinking about Guy Fawkes and why we celebrate bonfire night. We made some fantastic firework pictures and also started reading The Worst Witch.
Welcome back to Year Two after the Summer holidays! Mrs Baker, Mrs Pettinger and Mrs Taylor are very excited to meet all of our new children and are looking forward to getting to know everyone! In our first week back we will be taking it off timetable to concentrate on team work and finding out all about our rules and routines in Year 2!
Our first half term will concentrate on the topic - London's Burning! Much of our work will take on an enquiry approach as we travel back in time to visit the Great Fire of London! We will be researching and using different sources to find out exactly why the great fire of London was so great! At the same time we will be building on our bank of stories: reading, writing and retelling a range of stories from our own experiences!
