Welcome back to Year Two after the Summer holidays! Mrs Baker and Mrs Roberts 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!
During our first week we have been thinking all about team work and how we can work together to help each other! We decided on our class rules - to work hard, be polite, be honest, be respectful and be kind. It has been lots of fun getting to know our routines and finding out what life in Year 2 will be like!
In our second week in Year Two we have been thinking all about fire safety...poor Mrs Lusha had a little fire in her kitchen and she didn't know what to do!! Luckily, Year Two were on hand to remind her to call 999, stop, drop and roll and check her smoke alarm!
In our second half term in Year Two, we have been working very hard learning all of our lines for our Christmas production - Sparkle! We thought about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot and found out that Mildred Hubble is the worst witch in the entire world - she even paid us a little visit! We wrote letters to Santa and were so happy when he sent us a reply.
During our first week back after Christmas we have been learning about Traditional Stories and different ways we could keep healthy. We really enjoyed learning the story of The Princess and the Frog and we were able to retell it, changing it slightly!
