Our ART work inspired by Peter Thorpe.

Autumn 2 - Week 7
In English this week, 2MT are exploring and writing newspaper reports! They spent Mondays lesson looking at examples of Newspapers and identifying the features. The main activity was to read an 'introduction paragraph' to a Newspaper Report and identify the who? what? where? when? and why? information that helps the reader understand what the report is about. Keep an eye out - we will upload some children's Newspaper Reports by the end of the week!

For our online safety day, we have been looking at the following objectives:

-Ways in which we communicate with others

-What is acceptable information to share online

-Identify people who can help us, if we are not sure about something online

-Explain the word, permission and why it is important

-Explain why we should always ask a trusted adult, about clicking 'yes', 'agree' or 'accept' online

Autumn 2 - Week 6
The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop today. They studied the snowman design carefully, then used acrylic paint to create their masterpieces! All children are very proud of their work and can't wait to show you all... here is a sneak peak!

 

For our story time on Thursday, year 2 enjoyed a live read with Santa, from the North Pole. What a special treat. After three fabulous Nativity performances this week, year 2 are now counting down the days until Christmas!

Autumn 2 - Week 4 & 5

2MT have had such a busy week. We have been practicing our oracy skills during Nativity practice, where the children are working really hard to learn their lines, remember their positions on stage and the words to the many wonderful Christmas carols, we will be performing. 

On Friday, we had our 'Advent Craft' day, where we have focused on making wreaths.

Some children chose to make paper based wreaths, whilst others went outside into the forest school area, to create wreaths using evergreen leaves. 

Autumn 2 - Week 3
Children took part in a Diwali workshop with an outside company. They dramatised the story of Rama and Sita.

'This is so fun!' 

'I love your role play of the demon!'
'I love this story!'

Above is 2MT's school council suggestion box! They coloured hearts in and we discussed words that represent the school council. Well done - a gorgeous box to use this year!

 


Children had an anti-bullying workshop from an outside company. They learnt the definition of bullying, what do do if they are being bullied and what to do if they witness bullying. Children were also asked to give each other compliments. It was so lovely to hear such wonderful things said about 2MT!
