Year 2 had a day workshop in school where they dressed up as Victorians and learned what it was like to live in Victorian times. They had to scrub the floor, play games and write like children did in Victorian schools. It was a great day!
For Black History Month we researched the life of Malorie Blackman and created a collage of her portraits. We read several of her books and found out how inspirational she is as a children’s author.
In our art lesson we created patterns using colour mixing and exploring different tools.
In our Maths lessons we use lots of manipulatives to solve division and multiplication problems.
During work week we learned about Film and Theatre and went to visit the Museum of London Docklands to create our own set for a film.
Some visitors from the local church came to visit us and taught us one of the parables that Jesus told.
We learned the skills of a good chef while making a fruit salad in our DT project.
Year 2 went to Lambourne End. They were involved in many activities from pond dipping to orienteering and mini-beast hunting. As part of these activities they explored many habitats and micro-habitats.
We worked in teams to solve all the following problems. The workshop helped to develop our independent learning skills, communication skills and problem solving! We soon realised that every puzzle could be solved by using the right strategies and effective team work!
2K visited Canning Town library and were shown how they could take books out to take home. They selected one or two books which they wanted to take away with them on the day and used their new library cards.
