Robins and Kingfishers
We made pottage, which is a vegetable soup with oats, that people would have eaten in 1666. We looked at different vegetables and herbs, then planned what we would like to have in our pottage. We prepared vegetables and herbs in different ways and cooked it. Lots of us loved eating the pottage with our delicious bread rolls.
We made bread rolls as part of our Fire of London topic. We ate the rolls with our pottage that we made this week. The rolls were delicious! We wrote instructions on how to make bread rolls in our literacy .
We were really lucky to have a cricket coaching session on Monday 6th March. Lots of Year 2 showed great skills.
We really enjoyed World Book Day in Year 2. We loved dressing up in our favourite book characters. We read lots of books by Oliver Jeffers.They were great! We thought about what our favourite book was and gave reasons why.
We loved Clive Pig visiting our school. We took part in a drama workshop about 'The Great Fire of London'. What great fun we had acting out as if we were there in London 1666.
What a great time Year 2 had walking around the Hoe and the Barbican on Wednesday 26th February.We looked for buildings that would have been in Plymouth in 1666. We also looked at the Mayflower Steps and Sir Francis Drake's statue. We loved being history detectives.

Year 2 have learnt so much in gymnastics with Dan this term. He makes the sessions so fun. We had to balance in pairs. We thought of some fantastic ideas and balances.
The children enjoyed apple pressing with Dave. We gathered, washed, chopped and pressed apples from our apple tree to make apple juice. It was DELICIOUS!!
Year 2 found out about the Jewish festival of Sukkot. They remember the time when they were freed from slavery in Egypt and were in the desert. They had to make shelters to stay in. Today Jewish people put up a tent in their garden to remind them of the shelters. We made our own shelters called a sukkah.
Year 2 had an AMAZING day at Antony House on Wednesday 30th October. We had great fun collecting autumnal seeds, leaves and fruits. Great fun had by all.
Year 2 had an outdoor maths session on Wednesday 2nd October. We were looking at measures. We measured the cage in metres, weighed objects, filled containers with water and measured in litres and timed ourselves doing different activities in a minute. We loved measuring.
On Friday 27th September the whole school celebrated 'European Day of Languages' and came to school in the colours of their country's flag. Each class looked at a country. Year 2 found out about Holland. We learnt to say words in dutch. We found out facts about Holland and made hats with dutch pictures on it. We tasted Edam and Gouda cheese and stroopwaffel which we LOVED. We also made dutch apple cakes using the apples from our school apple tree.
On Monday 16th September Year 2 went on a local area walk. We looked for human and physical features in our local area as well as street furniture. We were not impressed with the litter we saw on the streets.
