Special Events

 

On Wednesday 11th December at 2pm we will be presenting our Christmas show at St Saviour’s Church.  The show is called ‘Christmas with the Aliens’ and tickets are for sale in the school office.

 

Our first Year 2 topic has been The Great Fire of London.  The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning all about the events of the Great Fire and how it affected the people of London.

Over the last couple of weeks, the children have been focussing on art and have been learning about shading and blending different media and layering, folding and crumpling tissue paper to create a fire effect.

Over the coming few weeks they will be using these skills and learning new skills to create a final piece of art of The Great Fire of London inspired by Rita Greer.

As we are now nearing the end of our topic, on Tuesday 17th December we will be having a Great Fire of London Workshop presented by ‘Samuel Pepys’.  The children will recap the story of how the fire started and chart its journey through London. The will look at way people tried to extinguish the fire and will take part in a chain-ganging exercise to help the children understand how difficult it was to extinguish the fire using buckets of water. 

Children will also learn about Sir Christopher Wren and how he helped to rebuild London and they will create artwork and take part in drama activities too.  Children are invited to dress up as a Tudor person (e.g Tudor maid, Thomas Farriner, Samuel Pepys, Kind Charles II).

The Children have been very excited to learn all about our new book in English which is called “A River”.  We have been looking at the language used by the author, discussing the themes of the book and even got to ask the main character some questions that we had devised.  Over the next few weeks we will be planning and writing our own version of the story all about a person who go on a exciting adventure sailing on a river on their beloved boat.
