Welcome to Class 2

 

Class 2 is home to our Year 2 and Year 3 children and is taught by Miss Cameron with support from Ms Sloane.

 

 

This half term, our topic has been Festivals and Celebrations. The children have enjoyed learning about a range of different religious festivals and commemorations which take place at this time of year. 

 

In History, they learnt all about Remembrance Day and about some significant individuals from World War I. The children enjoyed learning about Walter Tull, the first Black British army officer who was also a professional football. They also learnt about the roles of women during the First World War and thought about whether or not they would have liked to do the jobs that women did on the Home Front.

In English, the children retold the story of Rama and Sita, which is traditionally shared during the festival of Diwali. They particularly loved the characters in this story and the huge battle of monkeys and bears that took place. Once the stories were written, the class became confident actors who performed versions of the story for their classmates, as well as role playing the story at playtimes.

 

Alongside retelling this story in English, the children also made shadow puppets of characters from the story in their science lessons. The focus in science was on light and dark and in learning about how shadows are made there was a fantastic opportunity to retell the story of Rama and Sita using opaque puppets which cast different sized shadows depending on how close or far from the light source they were.
