Welcome to our Year 2 page!
British Values Week
After looking at the story, ‘Something else’ all about being different the children thought about their own identity and how they are different to others and how they stand out. From this, we then created our own ‘something else’ creature out of clay and painted them. We also discussed the term tolerance and what this means in and out of school. We talked about things that should and shouldn’t be tolerated. We understand that sometimes during games at playtime that we do not always tolerate each other as well so the year 6 play leaders came and taught us some playground games to help us.
On Friday 8th November,the Year 2 children came dressed as pirates and made their own parrot. We completed lots of art activities to help create our display including our own porthole. We then enjoyed singing sea shanties and playing pirate games to learn the different part of the ships. Later that month, the pupils were excited to have a real life pirate visit them. Captain Burwash talked to the children about what life as a pirate is like and retold stories about famous pirates. He showed us all of the weapons pirates used and the children said that seeing the cutlass and musket was a favourite part of theirs.
