Oak Class - Year 2

 Spring Term 2018

 

English

This term we have been reading traditional stories from different cultures.

We have focused on Hansel and Gretel and have read various different versions.

We have acted the story out, created storyboard posters, written setting descriptions, written lists

for a gingerbread house and also written our own versions of the story.

We are quite a good bunch of actors.

 

Chinese Dance Workshop
We had a professional Dance teacher visit us to teach us some Chinese Dances.

She taught us the history of the traditional dances and we learnt a Parasol and Dragon Dance.

We all had great fun learning some new dances.

 

Autumn Term 2017

 

Geography

In Geography this term we have been learning all the continents and oceans.

We learnt something about a different country in each different continent.

When we were learning about South America we learnt about Brazil and we made some

Brazilian masks that might be worn to a carnival.

 

Science - WOW Day

We thoroughly enjoyed our WOW day. We experienced a visiting space dome and learnt all about

the planets. We continued this learning in class by making our own massive planets collection.

We had to work in teams to gather all the pieces for our planets and put them all together.

It was pretty tricky. In the afternoon we were inspired by space travel and made some rockets.

It was a brilliant day!

 

Art - Andy Goldsworthy

We have been learning about the Andy Goldsworthy and how he uses natural materials to

create his artwork. We went outside and created our own natural sculptures using the grass,

leaves, twigs and stones in our gorgeous environment. We were very proud of our creations.

We learnt about his amazing voyage and how his discovery of the Bahamas led to us having potatoes,

pineapples and turkeys today.

We did some role-play and acted out his tricky voyage.
