A very warm welcome back to Term 2 everybody! Our new whole school theme is...
We will be exploring a wide range of festivals, important events and celebrations from around the world this term, leading up to our own exciting Christmas celebrations in December.
Week 1 started with a bang in Year 2 and we all enjoyed finding out more about Guy Fawkes and The Gunpowder Plot. We created timelines of 5th November and found out more about the group of men who plotted to kill the King.
In Week 2, we learnt more about the significance of Rememberance Day; with a particular focus on WW1. The children were fascinated to find out more about life in the trenches and they learnt about the many different groups of people and animals who served their countries.
On 11th November, we held our own Rememberance service. We created beautiful poppy wreaths and wrote thank you letters to those who served in the war. Well done Violet Class - we are so proud of you.
