THE TUDORS

When did Queen Elizabeth stop being  Queen? Queen Elizabeth 1 died  in 1603 and that’s when the Tudor period ended so there were no more Tudor Kings or Queens
Wow Fact!
Did you know why the Tudor period ended?…because Queen Elizabeth didn’t marry anyone so no one became King.
Queen Victoria’s  family
Queen Victoria had 9 children! She married someone called Albert who sadly died and Queen Victoria wore black for the rest of her life.
Dancing
We learnt some Tudor dancing and every week we had to practise.  We filmed it and we had a competition against 2B and 2S, 2B won!  On Kings and Queens Day we performed the dance again.  Everyone did a great job!

Kings and Queens Dressing Up Day!
All classes in Year 2 dressed up in special clothes. The choices of costumes were:
•    Queens maid
•    Queen
•    King
•    Knight
The teachers took pictures of us in our costumes.  Here are some of the activities we did during our special day:
•    Fact file about  Queen Victoria
•    Our Tudor dance
•    Designed a crown for Queen Elizabeth II

•    Sketching
We all had a great time, you can see from the photos below!

CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY

We are reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in Year 2 and we have started helping Mr Willy Wonka in maths. We learnt about RUCSAC which is a way of helping us to solve maths problems.
Here are some rules about RUCSAC:

 

 

The children that worked really hard were rewarded with a golden ticket.

We are also learning about how to keep healthy so we helped Mr Willy Wonka persuade the Oompa Loompas to eat more healthy food because they were eating lots of sweets and it wasn’t good.
We made posters thinking about things like:
Why should we eat healthy food?
What sort of foods are healthy?

SPACE

In Year 2 we have been learning about space and the first man on the moon. The Americans and the Russians had a race to see who would be the first country to land on the moon. The first man was an American called Neil Armstrong. Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins set off in July 1969 from Florida, USA. The rocket was called Apollo 11 and the Lunar module was called the Eagle. When the Command Module went back through the Earth’s atmosphere around it was fire and they landed in the sea.
In space there are lot asteroids hitting the moon which make lots of craters. There is zero gravity in space, which means that you jump super duper high.

HILLIER GARDENS

Year 1 went on a school trip to Hillier gardens. One of the activities we did was pond dipping we had to dip a net in the pond and we had to try and catch a newt.  We caught different sized and aged newts and had lots of fun. We also played a game which was like a trail and we had to find cards. We also went on an adventure walk, we went over a wobbly bridge and walked over a thin plank. We all had a lovely day.

GOLDEN MILE

This term we have been doing the golden mile.  The golden mile is something that we do 3 times a week and it is where we try to run a mile around the playground, Big hall, Ball pit and the Field. We measure how many laps we have done by collecting a cube every time we have run a lap. When we get back to class we count the cubes and tell our teacher how many laps we did. She records it on a special website.

 

A TOY’S STORY….

In Year 1, we have been learning about new toys and old toys.  We set up a museum for Reception children to come and visit.  We sketched pictures of our old toys and new toys.  Here is my sketch of a Clone Trooper.

MONEY

In Year 1 we have been learning to count money and we are counting in pounds and pence. We have also been adding and subtracting money.

ENGLISH

This term in English we have been learning about the wonderful St Marks Primary School.

We wrote our own poems and took ideas from our own poems to make our class poem. Here is our class poem:

DUCK EGGS

In Year R we have some duck eggs!  We are all really excited about the ducks hatching from their little eggs. For the last few years we have hatched chickens but this year we had the opportunity to have ducks instead. Some of us want the ducks to be bright yellow but some want them to be brown ducks! The children have been staring at the incubator that holds the duck eggs, for a really long time!  Everybody is hoping that all of the eggs will hatch this year.

 

PEOPLE WHO HELP US…

In Year R we are learning about people who help us in and outside school. It is really interesting to learn. Some of the people, who help us, are:
Firemen
Policemen
Ambulance People
Doctors
This term we are really excited because firemen and policemen came, with their vehicles, and visited us for the day. They showed us all the equipment, that they use, and let us hold them.  We are extremely excited to know what our new topic is for next term.

 

In Year R we have been learning about the Jolly Christmas Postman. We have also been learning about Humpty Dumpty and how we could protect him from breaking his egg shell. We chose a material and wrapped it round Humpty Dumpty. We used wrapping paper, paper, bubble wrap and cotton wool. Then we dropped him on the floor. For Anti-Bullying-Week we sang a song about our hands, feet and words and how we could keep them to ourselves.

In art we have been doing stamping with paint and … brussel sprouts!  Then we put paint on our pinky finger and dabbed it onto the stamp. After that we blobbed a little bit of glue onto the holly wreath. Next we poured just a little bit of green glitter onto it to make pretend mistletoe!! In Maths we have been counting numbers and it is really hard!

On Chinese New Year we tried Chinese food like:
Noodles
Rice
Vegetables covered with sauce
We liked the noodles best!
