September in Year 2
What a great month it has been in Year 2! We began our new year with the topic ‘We Are Heroes’ looking at superheroes as well as real life heroes. All of the children have invented there own superheroes and on Dress As Your Hero Day we all dressed up as people we admired, whether real or fictional. It was a great start to then learning about such heroes as Rosa Parks, Emmeline Pankhurst, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King. In R.E. lessons we have been learning about what makes a good leader, so we interviewed our very own headteacher, as well as visiting All Saints Church to learn about a different kind of leadership from Reverend Kath. We have also been learning about addition and using the column method, as well as place value in maths lessons. We have learnt about the art hero Gustav Klimt and worked in his style using patterns and printing. We feel that it has been a great start to Year 2 and we cannot wait to carry on with our other great topics after half term!

On Thursday 12th January Year 2 had a History Workshop presented by the wonderful Mrs Ashby. The children all dressed in costumes from the 1600’s to act out scenes from the Great Fire of London. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience, gaining a real insight into the event.
