On Monday we went for a walk around the wild life area and pond to stimulate our imagination in order to write a personal recount.

The whole school have been remembering how we are all different with wearing our odd socks to school. We have been singing with Andy and his Odd socks. Look out for the song on You Tube (Change), it is very catchy! In Year 2 we have been carrying out role play and activities celebrating how different we all are.

This week our class were lucky to take part in listening to an inspirational assembly about loneliness and isolation with older people.

Year 2, alongside KS2, took part in filling ‘Warm in Winter’ bags with tea bags, coffee and hot chocolate satchets.

This activity fitted in well with what we do every day in Year 2 with our class Random Acts of Kindness.  This encourages all of the children to be kind and that it does not cost anything to be kind to others.

History: As part of our History topic, Y1 and Y2 were lucky to take part in a workshop on The Great Fire of London. This further enhanced their understanding and learning. All the children took part in drama scenarios. As a finale to the day, each class performed their drama scenes to the other class.

Castle time: Year 2 were so thrilled to finally get to use the fantastic new castle.  Thank you from all in KS1!

In Year 2, we have started off the term by reading a popular Traditional Tale, Rapunzel. First we read the original story and then compared it to Bethan Woolvin’s version of the tale. The children compared the two texts by looking at what is similar and what is different.

We are looking forward to continuing with this unit next week!
