Year 2 Topic Letter Spring 1 2017

The children in Year 2 had a fantastic time visiting the childhood homes of Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and John Lennon.

They also visited the Beatles Story at the Albert Dock. It was a day full of fun and laughter and such a joy to hear the staff at the Beatles Story comment so highly on the children's behaviour and participation during their time there.

To top it off the children sang  'Imagine', A cappella, in the Lennon room, which was truly breathtaking.

 

Squishy Circuits Workshop 

Scientists from Inspiring Science conducted a wonderful workshop, exploring squishy circuits for a whole day at the end of January. 

During the workshop the children:

  • Were introduced to the concepts of electrical circuits using Cambridge Electronic kits
  • Used salt dough to create electrical circuits - lit up LED lights and set up buzzers
  • Used conductors and insulators to create a salt dough circuit incorporating lights
  • Took part in a quiz to test their knowledge

 

The workshop was a hands-on day which the children loved we photographed their wonderful models for our corridor display.Throughout the day the children worked through a booklet, testing out different circuits, making predictions and explaining their findings. 

Samuel Pepys and The Great Fire of London

Year 2 had a wonderful time with our visit from Fugit Tempest to deliver a lively and inspiring drama workshop to really bring this historical story alive.  They captured the children's imagination through acting, drama, song and dance and finally the children  were invited to ask some thought provoking questions to discuss further back at class.  

 

The children got to  meet Samuel Pepys who gave them an eyewitness account of The Great Fire of London, giving an understanding of how and where the fire broke out and the correct sequence of events. Samuel also told us about his life and his job giving us some insight into life in London at the time (1660's during the Restoration). Some children dressed up in costume of the period to represent a variety of characters from this famous story.

 

The children described the workshop as ' a blazing success' which was quite fitting to the theme.

Learning visit to Cheshire Reindeer Lodge

To celebrate 'the most wonderful time of the year' and help us to learn more about reindeer, Year 2 visited Cheshire Reindeer Lodge. 

It was a fun filled visit and we all returned full of the Christmas spirit. Our first activity was to learn some fun facts about reindeer from Elf Candy. We even got to practise how they go to the toilet with their legs wide apart so the wee doesn't freeze on their thick hairy coats. Feeding the reindeer was a big hit, because it felt so tickly. 

We had a chance to sketch the reindeer, so we observed them closely, especially those amazing antlers! While we were sketching, we had our photo taken in groups inside Santa's sleigh with a big reindeer called Ambrose.

More fun awaited us inside when we met Elf Bernard and Elf Trixie who led the Christmas show. It was just like a pantomime and we had some great laughs. Ms Duffy led the Elf Band on electic guitar and was swept off her feet by Elf Bernard! When Father Christmas arrived we sang some songs for him and he was so impressed with our fantastic singing, he gave us all a present. 

We walked through the toy workshop to Father Christmas waved to us as we left. We all enjoyed talking about our favourite parts of the day while we ate lunch in the Village Hall. 

Our visit was a great start to the festive season and we hope you enjoy looking at the photos of the day.
