Year 2 – History: Then and Now

A practical lesson creating a class timeline, as well as, ordering King James I Coronation, the Gunpowder plot, Queen Elizabeth II Coronation and Fireworks night.

Year 2 – Role Play

The children listened to the story of The Enormous Turnip, recreating the story in groups to use expression and actions in the correct order.

As part of the story ‘Pattan’s Pumpkin’, being read throughout the Autumn term, the children took it in turns to Hot Seat within their groups. By impersonating a character from the story, they were able to think about how they would be thinking and feeling; finishing with the whole class asking each character questions.

Year 2 – Creative Arts

At the start of the Autumn term, our children concentrate on PSHE, discussing the school rules and looking at emotions. Linked in with their creative arts lessons they created their own monster, following their discussions with the ‘Colour Worry Monster’

Later in the term, they expanded on their use of natural resources, learning about Andy Goldsworthy; a Britsh artist who uses natural materials to create scultpures. They created their own pieces of art, including trees, faces and abstract designs!

Year 2 – Creating a Sukkah in RE

As part of the Jewish celebrations during the Autumn term, our children learnt about Sukkot and the huts that get constructed for the week long festival. Linking in to their creative arts they were able to design and make their own Sukkah using natural resources from outside.
