Learning in Year 2
Spring Term 1
In RE we have learnt about the Hindu festival of Holi.
This festival is really important to Hindus and celebrates good overcoming evil and different Hindu Gods like Lord Vishnu.
We learnt about some of the stories like the story of Prahlad where Lord Vishnu saved him and we also learnt about Krishna who used to play jokes on people. When Holi is celebrated people do things such as pray to shrines, eating special food and throw coloured paint powder and water at each other.
We had SO much fun learning about this and throwing paint at each other! The Teachers were definitely prime targets...
Look what appeared as a hook in our area!
Can you predict what story we might be learning about?
Autumn Term 2
Last term our focus was healthy eating and preparing a smoothie. In the last week we worked in our groups to make our smoothies and to taste them! We had a really fun day and most of us found our smoothies very tasty :)
History Day 5th November
As our History topic this term is focused on The Gunpowder Plot we thought what a better way to start our topic on this day!
In school we had a fun filled day of learning all about The Gunpowder Plot and Guy Fawkes. We acted out the story with our character masks, thought of questions that we would like to know the answer to and even visited a Guy Fawkes Museum (in the hall) to learn even more and study some sources. Take a look at the pictures!
For our first learning journey in Writing we are looking at the story 'The Dark' by Lemony Snicket. We started off by all crouching in our darkened pod with one single strobe of light. We spoke about how this made us feel and what it reminded us of. We've already really enjoyed reading this story so far!
In computing this term we are looking at Dance on Scratch.
Our first lesson this week was to watch a dance, discuss the repeated moves and then create our own routine with repeated moves in it. We had SO much fun!
