London's Burning workshop: Year 2 have been learning all about The Great Fire of London as part of our History topic. We designed and made our very own Tudor houses, painted and decorated them and then took them into the nature garden. With the help of the workshop leader, we set the houses on fire to experience what it would have been like for the people who lived there.
For our topic 'The History of Flight', Year 2 visited the Yorkshire Air Museum. We saw lots of different airplanes, including a model of the Wright Brother's airplane. Our favourite part of the trip was sitting inside some of the model airplanes!
Year 2 went to visit Flamingo Land Zoo. We had a fantastic time looking at all the different animals. We even got to hold some of them!
The traditional Christmas story is retold to some alien visitors who become stranded on earth and meet a group of schoolchildren rehearsing their Christmas play.
Year 2 have been retelling the story of 'The Enormous Turnip'. Here is a video of some year 2 children retelling the story, using actions. Why don't you practice it at home too?
Year 2 absolutely loved visiting the Yorkshire Air Museum. We saw the first ever aeroplane made by the Wright Brothers and lots of other historic aircrafts.
