We have been learning all about why we celebrate bonfire night. We had lots of fun talking about Guy Fawkes and why he is a significant person. We worked with our partner to order and sequence the events of the gun powder plot.

After that, we acted out the key historical events and discussed what each character would feel like during each of the different parts.

Remembrance Day

For Remembrance Day Year 2 have been learning about what countries were involved in starting the world war, We then wrote an acrostic poem all about the soldiers who died.

In art we learnt about why the poppy is important and used as a symbol of remembrance and we the used our sketching and painting skills to create our realistic poppy pictures.

Making Santa’s Sleigh

This week in our topic lessons we were given a special task from Santa. We had to design a sleigh for Santa to use. For this we tested the properties of different materials and decided which material would be the best for the different areas of our sleigh. We then used our findings to make our own sleigh prototype. Take a look at us in action…

Our Reading Ambassadors

This week our reading ambassadors have loved using the thesaurus to find synonyms of words. They have even used them to so that they can use a range of different adjectives in their work, well done boys!

Pointillism Calendars

This year Year 2 have decided to take inspiration from the artist George Seurat to help create our calendars. We found out that George Seurat uses a technique called pointillism to create his art work. This is where you use little dots of paint close together to make pictures. WE hope you like them as much as we enjoyed making them!

This week we have been looking at different classifications of animal and the different characteristics each type of animal group has. We then identified animals in each group and made a fact file for each one. Take a look at some of our super work!
