This afternoon, 2BS took part in their brilliant class assembly. The children thoroughly enjoyed sharing all of their work about the Great Fire of London and The Great Outdoors. Take a look at the exciting photos below.
2PN enjoyed sharing some of their learning with Parents and Carers this morning. The children have worked so hard since September and this is evident in the learning they complete.
The children enjoyed reading their writing, showing their art work, sharing their science knowledge and singing.
Well done Class 5!
This afternoon, Year Two had a wonderful Christmas Party. They played many games including Musical Statues, Pass the Parcel and even Sleeping Lions! Take a look at some photos below:
Year 2 loved wearing their Christmas jumpers today as part of Christmas Dinner day. Thank you to our wonderful kitchen staff for the delicious food and party hats.
Our very talented children in Year Two were amazing this week during their Christmas performances of ‘Prickly Hay’. They wowed their audiences with their wonderful singing, acting and dancing – we are incredibly proud of them all. Take a look at some images below:
The children thoroughly enjoyed completing the Rudolph Run today to raise funds for Barnsley Hospice. Take a look at the photos below.
Today, the children have enjoyed coming to school in non-uniform to support Children in Need. We are very grateful for the donations sent.
On Monday, the children enjoyed coming to school in their odd socks to show support for Anti-Bullying Week. This was to highlight that difference should be celebrated. Yesterday, the children completed their own handprint filled with things special to them. This allowed them to see how different their peers are too. The children know the importance of 'Reaching Out' to a trusted adult if they know of bullying taking place.
This week, Year 2 enjoyed writing their own set of instructions about how to create a Jack-O-Lantern. They started by identifying verbs before using their knowledge of this to instruct each other to carve a pumpkin. The children loved this!
Today, Year Two have had a wonderful day learning more facts about The Great Fire of London from Sir William Petty. Children came dressed in period dress and they looked fantastic!
The day began learning about London in the past. Sir William told the children about London, The River Thames and the reason why people had fires in the past. They found out about storm lanterns and how they kept the wind out. Some children even tested this by blowing on the lantern. Can you guess what happened?
In the workshop with Sir William, the children learnt about the houses and why they set on fire. They even completed an experiment to show how easily the houses set on fire. Some children were houses, some children were warehouses and others were churches.
Another exciting part of the workshop included the children showing how to pass the buckets of water from The River Thames. Ask your child about the material the buckets were made from. Did you know that when the fire was burning, people escaped with their furniture? They used the boats on the Thames to help to move it.
We are sure the children have had an amazing day and enjoyed their workshops with Sir William. What a fun filled day they had!
Questions you could ask your child:
When did the fire start?
Where did the fire start?
What did Samuel Pepys bury in his garden?
Why did only six people die in the fire?
