A wonderful term in Year 2

It has been a wonderful term in Year 2! The children work incredibly hard in all areas of their learning. Some of the highlights have been:

Getting ready to start joining in Kinetic Letters.

Borrowing books from the Year 2 book list.

Finding out fractions of amounts.

Learning to tell the time.

Finding out about our topic The Great Fire of London.

Taking part in a singing afternoon and performing ‘Wonder’ to the whole school.

Our visit from a Fire Protection Office.

Taking part in SDS bake off.

Designing, making and evaluating a Tudor house.

The final highlight came this afternoon, when the whole year group came together and we created our own ‘Pudding Lane’. The children put their houses close together and a fire started…

Well done to all children for a brilliant term with lots of learning. Enjoy your half term and I can’t wait to hear all about it soon.

Visitor in Year 2

Today, we were lucky to have Mr Richards visit Year 2 to talk to us about his job with the fire service.

After discussing fire safety in the home, he made all of the children ‘fire protection officers’. The children have been tasked with checking their fire alarms in their homes. He explained that we should test our fire alarms each week to ensure they are working.

On the playground, the children acted out the Great Fire of London and explored how wind and the material of the houses were the main cause for the fire spreading.

The children were then allowed to try on a fire fighters uniform. We discussed how the uniform keeps a firefighter safe. Can you remember how the uniform keeps the firefighter safe?

All of the adults were really proud of the children’s knowledge of The Great Fire of London and fire safety.

Well done Year 2!
