Year 2 Hit The Beach!

On Tuesday 2nd July and Wednesday 3rd July Year 2 classes visited Southend. We had been studying the UK and comparing a seaside in the UK with a seaside in Spain as part of the Erasmus project. We travelled by coach and when we arrived we had our lunch and then we had a chance to play games on the grass and paddle in the sea. It was very exciting. The water was cold. We saw beach huts, fishing boats and a pier while we were there. We had a chance to explore and find unusual shells. By the time we arrived back at school we were very tired, but we had a lovely day out!

The Great Fire of London

This term year 2 have been learning about the Great Fire of London.To conclude the topic, children made houses from paper, wood and mod-roc, to represent the typical timber framed houses of the time. We then set them on fire to give children the opportunity to experience how quickly the fire spread. Children were excited, however, they realised how dangerous fire can be.

Crimean Hospitals

We worked collaboratively to design and make Crimean hospitals. Some children made the horrendous hospitals that Florence Nightingale found when she first arrived in Turkey. Others made hospitals to show how she improved them.

Florence Nightingale

Florence Nightingale came to visit Year 2! We traveled back in time and pretended to be be soldiers and nurses in the Crimean War. We had so much fun!
