This term in History, Year 2 are learning about how toys have changed over time. To link with this, in D.T, we looked at designing and creating our own finger puppets. First, the children had to research types of puppets, including string, finger and hand puppets. Next, they designed their own finger puppets using ideas from our fairytale stories we have been studying in English. The following week, the children had to use coloured felt to create their design. The children were very excited about this and tried really hard to ensure that their puppet looked like their design. Finally, the children evaluated their puppets. They thought about what materials they had used, the strengths of their puppets and how they could improve their puppet if they were going to do it again. The children had lots of fun learning about puppets and the history of toys.
Year 2 had a fantastic day visiting Mountfitchet Castle. It is build to look like a Norman motte and bailey castle. The children were able to explore what life would have been like living there 900 years ago. They got to visit the blacksmiths, the jail, the surgeon, the grand hall and even the privy (medieval toilet)! They also got to see a range of animals that live at the castle. The deer, chickens and peacocks were very friendly!
All the children behaved beautifully on the trip and had a fun day out (even if we did get a little bit wet!)
This week Year 2 have started work on their new book 'Tadpole's Promise' by Jeanne Wallis. It is all about how tadpoles and caterpillars change over time. Ask your child what happens at the end of the book.
Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely break and are ready for the busy term ahead. Our topic this term is 'Once Upon a Time...' We will be learning all about life in castles, kings and queens!
We were pleased to see so many of you come in to share the children's STEM activities with them. They really enjoyed celebrating their achievements and findings with you.
We hope you have a lovely Easter and we will see you on Wednesday 24th April.
The Year 2 team.
On Friday, we were so lucky to have Quantum Theatre visit us to perform 'The Half Pint Kid'. This play was set in the Wild West with cowboys and a treasure quest! We learnt all about fractions, addition, subtraction and times tables.
All of Year 2 and Year 1 were exemplary, they listened so carefully and volunteered to join in enthusiastically.
Thank you for visiting us!
