Our recent activities in Year 2
Below is a snapshot of what Year 2 have being doing in school.
As part of our Paddington topic, we researched the kinds of animals which would have lived with Paddington Bear in his natural habitat – the Amazon Rainforest. We enjoyed looking at the animal’s features and which part of the rainforest they lived in. We even made our own Red-Eyed Tree Frogs!
We are now well into our new topic of London! We have learnt all about the Great Fire of London and enjoyed writing diary entries from the point of view of civilians and Thomas Farriner. We have been making (and burning!) our own London houses and were fascinated to see just how quickly the fire spread.
As ever the children have enjoyed their weekly forest school sessions. So far we have completed surveys on mini beasts and their habitats and made some dream catchers using willow found in Forest School.
During safety week we were lucky enough to have a visit from the police who spoke to use all about how the police service can help us and how they try to keep us safe. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting inside the police car and dressing up as police men/women!
