The children in Fox class have had a busy first half term in Year 2.
As part of their topic ‘To Infinity and Beyond’, they learnt all about Neil Armstrong and his Moon landing. They ordered the events of his life in chronological order and discovered that he received his flying licence when he was only 15 years old. In English, the children wrote recounts as if they were Neil Armstrong. They used expanded noun phrases and conjunctions to add detail to their writing and make it interesting.
During the English and Outdoor Learning focus week Year 2 loved experiencing and learning all about fire in the Forest School. Their favourite part was watching the corn ‘pop’ from the heat of the fire. At the beginning of the week we read ‘Duncan’s Treehouse’ by Amanda Vesey. The children acted out the story and rewrote the ending using their own ideas.
The topic for the second half of Autumn term is ‘Winter Wonderland’ and we look forward to sharing our learning with you.
