In Year 2:
Year Two visited Arundel Castle in September and thoroughly enjoyed learning about what life was like in a Medieval Castle.
All the children got to dress up as archers, ladies, jesters, knights and lords in the education room.
With our guides we all enjoyed visiting the Keep, the grand Great Hall, the gardens, the armoury and lastly the impressive barbican with the deep oubliette.
The children had chance to walk in the dry moat called the ‘The Fosse’ and learnt so many historical facts.
Luckily the weather was kind to us and we all enjoyed a picnic lunch outside.
We learn about Famous People.
We begin by learning about different famous people. We get inspired by the author Roald Dahl and became authors ourselves. We write our own gruesome Twits stories.
We end the topic with a Famous People Day where we dress up as famous people and some of us even get to be in character and are interviewed by Mrs Ford.
We also get the chance to share our home learning projects about our chosen famous person with other children across Year 2. We are very proud of how hard the children work on their home projects and how creative they are.
After half term we start our new topic
We learn all about life as a sailor from years ago and we are able to learn more about this during our trip to HMS Victory. The activities on board the ship really bring the topic to life.
We also focus on comparing two difference locations in the world Brighton, in the UK and Castries, in the Caribbean. We think about the human and physical geographical features in these places and present our findings to the class.
We create our own leaflets about each place ensuring that it is interesting and eye catching for the reader.
We end the half term with a wonderful ‘Pirate Day’ as well as an assembly for parents showing them what we had learnt about this half term.
