RE - Old Testament Stories and Prayer 

This term our author is Anthony Brown. Below is a list of books you may want to enjoy with your child together.

CLIC - Learn Its

Learn Its are sent home every Friday and the children will be tested the following Friday. Your childs Learn Its will be the same for this term. We don't expect your child to learn them off by heart straighaway, but would like their score to improve each week, so by the end of the term they know them off by heart. 

First day in Year 2

Week 2

R.E. - Old Testament

During our RE lessons this term we are learning about the stories found in the Old Testament. Today we learnt about the story of Noah's Ark and why God sent a flood.  The children acted out different parts of the story and we put them all together to retell this special story. 

Noah's Ark

Week 3

 In R.E. we have carried on reading stories from the Old Testament.  Today we looked at the story of Jonah and the Whale and the hidden message behind the story. In groups the children acted out the different scenes to create a story map for the class washing line. 


In Art we will be creating our very own sculptures from clay. Today we explored clay and the different techniques you can use to prepare the clay in preparation for when we design and make a sculpture from clay, using inspiration from Gaudi.


Week 4

Windsor Castle

The Years 2s had a wonderful trip to Windsor Castle today. The children enjoyed walking around the castle and spotting the different features that they had been taught about in their History lessons. Everyone had the opportunity to have their photo taken with the King's Guards too and we even saw a group of soldiers marching around the catsle. Fortunately, we had the privelege of paying our respects to the Queen at her final resting place and the class were incredibly respectful whilst doing so (I was very proud). They all enjoyed the eduactional session, where they role-played a castle under attack. 

We had a wonderful day.  I would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents who supported us during this trip. 

Week 5

Following on from our visit to Windsor Castle last week, the children created their very own castles from clay. They used a range of tools and techniques to include all the key features of a castle. Take a look at the pictures to spot the battlements, towers, baileys, arrow slits and drawbridges in each model. 

Week 6

We had a wonderful morning at Reading Museum studying the replica of the Bayeaux Tapestry.  We learnt about  how William the Conqueror became King of England through role play and looking closely at the tapestry. A huge thank you to the parents who came along and helped.
