Wow- another busy and exciting month in Year 2. This month, we have been really busy with lots of special occasions including, Remembrance Day, Anti-Bullying Week and Children in Need. On the 15th November, we were so excited to receive a visit from Pudsey Bear. We were able to come into school in our own clothes and make lots of Pudsey crafts. We enjoyed making Pudsey Bear flags. During Anti-Bullying Week, we enjoyed working with different children and teachers around the school on different Anti-Bullying activities. We had circle time sessions with Harold the Giraffe and acted out different scenes to promote anti-bullying. We also discussed how we could make the world a kinder place and acted out different scenes of kindness.
For Remembrance Day, we commemorated the fallen soldiers by making our own class wreath which we then took to the Cenotaph at the Memorial Garden. We walked down to the Memorial Garden with Year 6 and placed our poppy wreath on the Cenotaph. We also held a minutes silence. During the week, we were able to bring in our own poppy creations from home to display in school. We had some fantastic ideas! We also took part in a Poppies and Poetry session.
In PE, we have enjoyed dancing with the theme of ‘The Great Fire of London’ which we have been learning all about in class and in Science we have been investigating the properties of different materials.
We wonder what December will have in store?
