You, your school, your world – make the most of it!

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

We have loved our work on Ancient Egypt this term. This is what some of our children thought of our topic:

' My favourite activity was doing the Egyptian hieroglyphs and writing like an Egyptian,' -Leo.

Taejah- ' The most interesting thing I learned was how dead bodies were mummified.'

' I really enjoyed finding out how they moved stone blocks, which we tried using heavy weights and straws as rollers, '-Daniel.

' I'm especially interested in Tutenkhamun and how he died,'-Sophie.

'We all loved the videos with the talking mummified cat,'- everyone!

Next we found out about the Great Fire of London. Here are some of our thoughts:

The fire service visit was really excting,' - Emily and Adrianna

'The video was a bit scary,'- Kyle

Kimberley- ' I didn't like the book about the Great Plague.'

'I liked seeing what the doctors wore when they treated the plague victims. They looked really cool,'- Camron

'It was really interesting to find out what the Ring a ring a roses song really meant'- Emily and Taejah

'We liked making the display of the burning Tudor houses best,'- Destiny.

During the Spring term we found out about Heroes. This is what the children thought about it:

We enjoyed designing our Superheroes, especially their costumes. 

We found Louis Braille's story very sad because he blinded himself in an accident when he was 3 and then died from TB at a young age. He never knew how important his invention would be.

' I learned that to be a hero you don't need to have super powers'- Camron
' I learned that Florence Nightingale lived to be 90 years old' - Sophie

Next term's topic is Islands. Some of the children want to find out about places like Jamaica, where some of their family come from.
