Year Two

 

Mrs Davey, Mrs Gillespie, Miss Lawson

and class teacher Miss Davy.

This term pupils will learn about the invention of powered flight and how it has changed people’s lives. The launch lesson focuses on man’s fascination with flight and gives the pupils the opportunity to make ‘flying machines’ as small toys.

The story of the Orville and Edgar Wright, the two American brothers, inventors, and aviation pioneers is an important focus for this Unit. Pupils consider the history of flight to the present day and how the Wright brothers’ invention has affected the world and people’s lives over the past 100 years.

The importance of aerial photography is also used to demonstrate how the world and pupils’ homes and their local area looks from the air. Pupils will look at Google Earth images and aerial photographs to identify key features in their local area and this is then linked to the production of simple maps.

Spring ADMAT Trust Event

All of our partner schools came to the ADMAT event at Windmill Academy today. This term the event had a story telling theme. We had great fun creating a story using a 'Scratch' program on the computer. Together, we told a story through dance. We were able to go on a book scavenger hunt, use story bags and make a story map outside using chalks. We were having great fun learning with our friends and the morning came to an end to soon.

Our Class Assembly

Our assembly was about 'The Lost Sheep'. The children recognised that the meaning of Jesus' message was that God cares about everyone, but especially about those who are lost.

Anti bullying 2016

 

 This week KS1 are learning about the topic,Anti-Bullying. They took part in 3 different activities. One activity was 'Chains', the children were put into pairs and tied together.This meant they would have to use communication and team work while they played to not break the chain. Another activity was 'What Are You Good At?' for this the children drew pictures of what they thought they were good at. The last activity showed how unkind words and actions do not always show on the outside but may hurt on the inside. For this an apple was used. The children dropped an apple, cut it open and saw the bruising on the inside.

The children were split into 2 groups to explore, find clues and answer questions on 'The Charlie Bears Gallery Quiz'. They had great fun trying to find a bear with the same name as them.  

 

Pandemonium Theatre 2016

The theatre group entertained and educated the infant children with their tales of England. The three stories were of Cornish mermaids, Welsh dragons and London Bridge. There was audience participation with children being chosen to act as farmers, fishermen, and even London Bridge as it fell. Everyone enjoyed singing along when encouraged to.
