Children at work
Father Christmas visit
We found out about life for Victorian children enjoying a Victorian school day.  We thought about life for rich Victorian children looking at a range of toys and life for poor Victorian children at work.
During the first half of the Autumn term our theme in Year Two was the 'Frozen Planet'.
Our classrooms were cold and sparkling, just like the frozen parts of the planet.

We learnt about polar explorers and did some drama with a partner where we had to imagine we were Ernest Shackleton being interviewed by a newspaper reporter.

As explorers, we worked in groups to decide what to save from our ship which was surrounded by ice. We had to negotiate and give reasons for our decisions.

Mrs Atkinson visited with her Husky dog.

We learnt about icebergs and created a piece of art work.
As part of our work in Religious Education we visited St Albans cathedral to undertake the celebrations trail, thinking about baptism and weddings.
Some of the Year Two children represented the school at a sports festival.
We learnt about a lot of famous Victorians. We made comparisons between Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II.
Grace Darling appeared on the time machine and told us all about her life.
We also learnt about Florence Nightingale; comparing hospitals then with hospitals now.
On Wednesday 7th December and Thursday 8th December Year Two performed their Nativity play entitled 'A way in a Manger' to the school and their parents respectively. The children gave a very professional performance and we were very proud of them, singers, narrators, musicians and actors alike.
Finding the egg…
At the beginning of this term something amazing happened when we went into our classroom…the furniture had been overturned and there were footprints leading outside. We found a huge golden egg.
Sir Teachalot
On Friday 3rd February we had a visit from Sir Teachalot. We learnt all about Knights and armour; learning how the armour changed over time. We made a castle and destroyed it with a Trebuchet. The exciting day ended with some jousting!
Puppets
In Design Technology we designed, sewed, decorated and evaluated puppets linked with our theme of ‘Turrets and Tiaras’. We think our puppets look great.
