Selly Manor Museum
On Tuesday 26th April, Year 2 went to visit Selly Manor Museum to learn some more about the Tudors after our History lessons last half term. They had a wonderful day exploring the Tudor house, dressing up and playing games.
On Friday, we shared our grammar lesson with our parents.
We learnt about pronouns using 'The Storm Whale' story to help us.
Christmas Retreat Day January 2022
Our first three days back at school were very reflective and prayerful as we focused on the story of Christmas. We thought about Mary's great belief and trust in God as she said yes at the Annunciation, the difficulties Mary and Joseph faced on their journey to Bethlehem and the tough and dangerous journey made by the Three Wise Men. This work culminated with our whole school retreat day when we reflected on Jesus being a poor king who came to save us, the shepherds being told about Jesus by the angels and just as the Wise Men brought Jesus gifts, we considered carefully what gifts we can give Jesus every day through our thoughts, words and actions.
We made a pilgrimage journey around school to show how we are 'walking alongside' all the refugees who have to make dangerous journeys to find safety and better lives.
We had times of quiet reflection and wrote prayers about our hopes for refugees.
Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Norman Workshop 30th June 2021
One Day Creative came to visit us in school to lead a workshop that had been especially written for us to follow our units of work in History and Art.
We used all of our previous learning and new learning from the workshop to join with lots of different activities in pairs, in groups and as a whole class. We created and acted out an advert for an Anglo-Saxon kingdom, acted out a poem, freeze-framed and role played events and played invader games.
We really enjoyed using our historical knowledge, skills and understanding, our speaking and listening skills and our imaginations to reinforce and build on our learning.
Many thanks to One Day Creative for a fantastic morning!
Here is the Viking poem that we learnt.
Christmas Party 18th December 2020
We had a fantastic Christmas party. We made snowmen, reindeer hot chocolate and baubles. We decorated gingerbread Christmas jumpers and coloured over very own Christmas mugs. We danced and played musical bumps and musical statues. We played team games and had party food. A few weeks ago, we wrote letters to Father Christmas and he visited us on Zoom. He had all our letters and said that we are all on the good list. It was a great end to a great term!
