Autumn Term 2 2019/2020
At the beginning of term Year Two travelled back in time to 1666 and started to learn about the The Great Fire of London!
The children found out facts about this historic event through investigating different sources and they had great fun making bread, learning about and creating their own Tudor style house.
We also had a great drama day where the children came into school dressed in clothes worn in 1666 and we acted out the key parts of the Great Fire of London.
Having immersed ourselves in 1666 the children were able to write fantastic newspaper reports of this historic event.
We continued with our Great Fire of London theme and researched Samuel Pepys and his famous diary, before having a go at writing our own diary for the Great Fire of London.
Autumn Term 1 2019/2020
The children had the opportunity to immerse themselves in learning about Traditional Tales. The children dressed up as their favourite Traditional Tale’s character and shared their favourite story with their class. We discussed the features of traditional tales e.g. similar story openings, magical kingdoms and creatures, good and evil characters, repeated phrases etc. The children really enjoyed creating their own characters and describing them using adjectives.
For our Traditional Tales Fantastic Finale the children impressed their parents and carers with their fantastic Hansel and Gretel story writing using Mighty Writer.
The children and their parents then had a lovely time working together to create their own Gingerbread house using crayons and collage materials. It was wonderful to see everyone collaborating and working creatively.
