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
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.
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
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
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?

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.
