Year 2

Next term....

Year 2 will boldly go where no one has gone before....

 

Our new learning challenge will be ‘Who is Neil Armstrong and why was he brave?’

 

We will be finding out all about Neil Armstrong and asking why he is a significant person in History. We will find out all about his life and his achievements and thinking about his bravery.  

 

We will also be reading some fantastic Space books such as ‘Man on the Moon’ by Simon Bartram and imagining what it would be like to be an astronaut.

Our KS1 christmas workshop was a great success.  Families came in and made different crafts in the KS1 classrooms.  We think the parents and grandparents may have been having more fun than some of the children!!

Decades day was great fun this year!

In Year 2 we learned all about the 1990's, children came dressed in a 90's style and we discovered many different events that happened in the 90's such as Dolly The Sheep the first cloned animal and Operation Desert Storm.

We also learned about popular culture in the 90's and tried our hand and drawing our own Simpsons cartoon characters!  As well as learning many popular 90's dances including the Macarena!

FIRE! FIRE! 

Our topic this term is 'The Great Fire of London'. As part of this topic we will be learning about fire safety, investigating materials and designing and making Tudor houses.
