This half term our topic has been 'Traditional Tales.' We have carried out lots of work into different traditional tales such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks, Hansel and Gretel and The Gingerbread Man. Here is some of the work we have been carrying out throughout the half term. Haven't we worked well!
In Year 2, we have been learning all about harvest. We enjoyed painting, colouring and creating our own harvest hats. We also used different materials to create a collage of an Autumn tree. We also learned and performed the poem 'The Nut Tree' by Julia Donaldson. We were very proud to share our learning about harvest with the other Year 2 class in our Harvest festival performance. We peer assessed each other’s performances using 2 stars and a wish. Well done everyone! What super performances!
This week (the week beginning ) is Commando Joe Week for Year 2!
We decided to base our Commando Joe missions on the story 'The Owl Who's Afraid of the Dark' by our author for this half term, Jill Tomlinson. We worked really hard in our teams being Team Tigers and were super Creative Cobras in the way we thought about how we could use the equipment creatively to help us complete our missions.
In our first mission, we helped Plop the owl and his family build a shelter to protect them from the rain and predators in the wild. We had to use the equipment given to us to create a strong shelter that would stand by itself. All the owls had to be able to fit under the shelter and the shelter had to stay standing the whole time. We enjoyed pretending to be owls, guiding our owl family through the dark sky, down the path and into our shelters.
