Our first topic in Year 2 was keeping healthy and we completed lots of work about healthy eating and how we can look after oursleves and our bodies. We designed and made healthy sandwiches which was great fun. They tasted delicious!
During Autumn term we learnt all about castles. We have looked at different castles and we can name the different parts of a castle. We have designed our own Coats of Arms and painted them for our role play area. We have learnt about knights and jousting and how different our lives would be if we lived in the medieval times. We have wrote our own code of chivalry to help us undertsand the role of the knight. We have loved using our role play area to help us act out life in the medieval times. As part of our homework challenge for Autumn term we had to design and mke a model Castle. We all put in a fantastic effort and made some wonderful castles of all shapes and sizes.
During our Spring topic of London we learnt all about our wonderful capital city. We studied maps to find where London is and studied all of the different landmarks in London. We completed some lovely artwork of the landmarks. We have also learnt about the Great Fire of London and how influential it was to buildings and the fire services we use today. We have really enjoyed using our role play area to help us learn more about London and act in the roles of a bus driver, beefeater or policeman!
