We are Crimson Colourful Crystals
Welcome to Year 2!
In Crimson Class we are happy and enjoy learning. We keep our classroom tidy and look after the equipment and resources. We are good friends and look out for each other. Crimson Colourful Crystals have excellent manners and are well behaved.
Summer 1 2019
Our new topic this half term is called 'The Lighthouse'. We will be learning all about maps and giving directions in our topic lessons. In English we will be looking at a story of a lighthouse keeper with a serious problem! Can the children of Crimson class help to solve the clues?
Spring 2 2019
Our new topic this half term is 'Where The Wild Things Are'. We will be looking at contrasting localities and where places can be found on a map. We have lots of exciting things planned such as creating our own African sunsets, clay animals and designing our own bug hotels. In English we will be looking at the book 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' and we will be creating our own versions of the story that will be suitable for KS1 children.
Spring 1 2019
Our new topic this half term is all about our wonderful NHS. The children will be learning about the history of the NHS, Florence Nightingale, first aid, what to do in an emergency and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
Autumn 2 2018
'The Great Fire of London!'
Before we start our new topic in Autumn 2 we will be spending the first week back at school learning all about The First World War to celebrate 100 years since the signing of the Armistice that marked the end of the war. We will be learning about the sacrifices made by men and women during the war, what life was like back then and we will also be making our own poppies.
From week 2 onwards we will be learning all about The Great Fire of London. We will be learning about the bakery on Pudding lane, Samuel Pepys' diary and we will be creating our own Tudor houses to safely burn down.
On Monday 5th November we looked at colour mixing. We learnt all about primary and secondary colours and we used the colours we mixed to create beautiful firework pictures.
On Monday 12th November during our inspiration afternoon we created our own Tudor houses similar to the houses that were built in London during the time of The Great Fire of London.
We have been learning all about where the fire started in London and how it started. Therefore we had a go at making our own bread. First we learnt how to use the weighing scales correctly and then we had to follow a recipe. We all did a great job of kneading the dough and we can't wait to taste it once it has been baked
Autumn 1 2018
Into the Woods
Our first topic of the school year was 'Into the Woods' where we looked at different fairy tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs and Hansel and Gretel. We re-told the stories by re-writing them, acting them out and creating our own alternative endings.
Our 'into the woods' topic started with learning all about the story of Hansel and Gretel. We have written fantastic stories where we have altered part of it and we have designed our own gingerbread houses.
