Year 2 had a fantastic day when 'State of Play Arts' came to show us what it was like during London in 1666. We met Samuel Pepys and his maid Jane who tested our knowledge from our theme 'Burning Down the House'. They were astounded at the children's knowledge and enthusiasm for History! We had to act as it we were Londoners going about our day as a baker, doctor or banker before the fire started. We then used our excellent acting skills and empathy to capture what it might have been like in the fire. We tried to save our houses! As well as drama, we also created some Great Fire of London art using our knowledge of hot colours and created a colour wash of the burning city. As a musical treat, we learnt how 'London's Burning' and even learnt how to play it on the glockenspiel. It was a fantastic day!

Year 2 recreated Pudding Lane with their houses. We made sure that the houses were close together and were made using wood based materials, like they were in 1666. We were even lucky to have strong wind today! As you can tell, the children were surprised how quickly the fire spread! We even tried pulling one of the houses down to create a break in the row of houses, but unfortunately it spread across the street. We discussed how fire safety and house building has changed, how we can prevent fires and keep ourselves safe.

In Year 2 for Arts Week we focused on textiles and weaving. We learnt about the history of weaving and how important it is in creating lots of different materials, especially for clothes! We used weaving in lots of different ways - paper weaving, outdoor large-scale weaving, God's eye weaving and weaving on a card loom. We had a fantastic time honing our 'over and under' skills, with some excellent results!

Coral Class spent time in the garden on Forest Schools Day. We learned about the damage litter can do to wildlife and went on a litter pick during which we observed some of the wildlife that lives in our garden. We also learned about composting and then weeded the beds and planted some onion and garlic bulbs.

Year 2 had a fantastic Forest School Friday this week and are looking forward to the next one! We all make sure we were wrapped up well against the cold and the wind but that didn't stop us. We did a number of activities such as den building, weaving, natural art, orienteering and lots of outside games. Thank you to all the grown ups who joined in and helped us.

Coral Class have been talking about what the British value of democracy means. They then voted democratically for the person in their class who best represented the British and school value of respect. Finley was celebrated in the Key Stage 1 assembly for exemplifying this value.
