Year 2

Autumn term

During the term we have explored the question 'What makes my house my home?' The children have investigated who lives in our home and how this is different to others. We have looked at Marc Chagall as an artitst and created our own versions of his work. A visitor has also talked to us about homes around the world and how they are different to ours. 

We have also enjoyed the project question 'Who are the world's real superheroes?'. The children dressed up as their favourite hero and we had a range of costumes. The children looked at the work by Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale, alongside Sir Captain Thomas Moore. We explored the contributions they have made to our society.


Our project questions this term have been 'How can we start saving the world at Harmans Water?' and 'What can we learn from the Great Fire of London that will help us in our lives today?' 

The  children have been engrossed in our Great Fire of London project, making fire engines, bread rolls and silhouette pictures. They have written in the role of Thomas Farriner through writing a diary entry after exploring the work of Samuel Pepys. 

The Day The Crayons Quit inspired our persuasive letter writing. "Hi. Glue stick speaking. I am not impressed with how you use me! You do not need to unscrew me, use me and then spin me all the way back again- I get dizzy!' The children looked at what can and can't be recycled. They also had a go at making their own paper!
