Autumn 2 - Winter Festivals 
 
Welcome back Year 2!
I hope that you've had a lovely half term! We've got a very exciting topic  ... we are going to be learning all about 'Winter Festivals'!
Year 2 were very lucky to go on a visit to Kea Church. During our visit to Kea Church, we learnt all about the Christmas Story! Also, we had time to think about things that we are thankful for. Then, we all made a beautiful Christmas Tree decoration with a secret message inside saying all the things we are thankful for! 
To celebrate Bonfire Night, Year 2 did some AMAZING Acrostic Poetry! Year 2 are such amazing writers and I was very impressed the quality of poetry that was produced. They all tried to include similes and alliteration in their writing.  
Year 2 were really enthusiastic for 2021 Children in Need! We started the day by going on a Pudsey Trail around the playground! It was very tricky finding them all as they were all hidden very well! After that, we all came inside and did the Children in Need Workout/ Quiz with Joe Wicks! It was a lot of fun and a lot of money was raised. Well done Year 2! 
 
Autumn 1 - Clothes
 
On Wednesday 29th September, Year 2 went to Flambards to learn about clothes during Victorian Times! They had to spot different types of popular Victorian clothes such as bonnets, top hats and petticoats. Year 2 were extremely interested looking in the Victorian shoe shop and examining the clothes worn by children in the Victorian School! After they had worked so hard in the morning, they spent some time in the afternoon going on some rides! I was very impressed with the behaviour of all of the children throughout the day. Well done Year 2! 
In art, we designed and made our own paper caps! They were very tricky to make so we have begun to write some instructions in literacy so that others can make them! Check back on the website soon so you can see our fabulous instruction writing!
