Year 2 - Mrs Lindop and Mrs Portwine
Florence Nightingale Workshop at the Thackray Museum
To support our History topic about Florence Nightingale, we took part in a special workshop at the Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds. The children took part in a range of activities including role play and really enjoyed themselves.
As part of our science work all about plants, we each designed and made our own grass head. I think you will agree that we have some pretty spectacular hairstyles!
We have had lots of special visitors in class as part of our English work all about 'Olga da Polga', the mischievous guinea pig who likes to tell tall tales! Some of the class brought in their pet guinea pigs and we really enjoyed stroking them.
In Science we are learning about plants and animals and their habitats. We went on a walk to find local micro-habitats in the school grounds. We explored the field and the nature area and we found lots of different mini beasts. We saw snails, slugs, ants, beetles and ladybirds to name just a few. We were all super detectives!
Making Bread with Warburtons
To finish off our 'Great Fire of London' topic, we had a visit from Janet who works for Warburtons. The class got to sample a range of their products before making their own hedgehog bread! The classroom smelt like a bakery! Delicious!
Great Fire of London Day
'History Alive' came into school to teach the children all about the Great Fire of London and the Plague of 1666. The class enjoyed an interactive assembly with the rest of the school to start things off, before taking part in lots of other 'Fire' related activities. Everyone really enjoyed themselves.
Julia Donaldson Work
Year 2 have been looking at different Julia Donaldson texts in English. Here are the children ordering the key events from 'Tiddler'. Why is Tiddler late today I wonder!?
Here the children are making 'Gruffalo Crumble' - we all had such great fun and it tasted delicious.
Mr Hirst said it was the best crumble he'd ever tasted!
