In PE we have been looking at dynamic and static balances. We have used a range of apparatus independently, in pairs and groups. We really enjoyed challenging ourselves to apply our floor work on a bigger scale. Take a look at some of the ways we incorporated flight, travel and balance into our sessions.
As part of our History lessons this term, we have been learning about the Tudors. We have explored the life as a King and how democracy has changed through our history, as well as looked closely at the wives of Henry the 8th. Relating to this topic, we will soon be going on a trip to Berkley Castle, which we are really excited about! We have also been learning how to draw portraits, and we chose key Tudor figures to draw. We used a new strategy, that both our teacher and LSA showed us and some of the outcomes were amazing!
In RE, we have been learning about special celebrations. This links to the British Values of Respect and Mutual Tolerance. We learned about the Christian celebrations of baptism, and the Jewish celebrations of Bar and Bat Mitzvah’s. Take a look at some of the fantastic work below.
In Term 2, Year 2 have been reading ‘The Tiger in the Soup’. We have created a variety of work from this book, such as diary entries, narratives relating to the war, letters and character descriptions. We have produced some lovely work and our teacher is so proud of our work, that she has even contacted the author of the book to share some of the wonderful work we have done!
Take a look at some of the amazing examples of work we have produced so far.
Love of Reading - Term 1
2CM have been focussing on a love of reading. Thank you to the parents who have already looked at or purchased books from our ‘Author of the Term’ – Mick Inkpen. I hope that this continues and that all children in the class will begin to have discussions about his books shortly. Some children in our class have been specially selected to read to the other members of our class. Let’s hope that everyone will get the confidence to do this by the end of the term! Well done to the children who have already had a go.
In Year 2, we did Diwali day! We got to take part in lots of exciting activities, such as; cooking, dancing, acting and art. Mixed together, 2CM and 2VS, completed a range of exciting tasks. Take a look at some of the amazing things we did throughout the day!
