Year 2 have had lots of fun across this half term and have produced some amazing art work linked with our Great Fire of London History topic. Recently, they enjoyed looking at how St. Paul’s Cathedral changed after being rebuilt following the fire. They really looked closely at the fine detail to create their pen sketches.
In the last week of term, we worked on developing our skills of persuasion and concluded our work by writing a persuasive letter to Mr Applegate to ask to have a space day linked with our learning about Neil Armstrong in Autumn 2. We’re delighted to say that they succeeded and we will have our Space Day on Wednesday 20th November. Whilst the children are welcome to come in space outfits on this day, they have written in their letters to Mr Applegate that they will make their own costumes as part of our space themed activities, so please remind them to this. We would like them to come in wearing a coloured t-shirt but we will make head-dresses and accessories during the day, so there should be no extra expense to you.
We also ask that each child brings in a used and washed 2L drinks bottle (with a lid) into school during the first week as we will be using these to create a fantastic space rocket. If you have any newspapers that you no longer need then we would be grateful for those too as we will be using them for paper and paste.
We enjoyed seeing you all at our recent parents’ evenings and look forward to another exciting half term.
