We have had a really busy and exciting last term here in Year 2. For our History topic we have been finding out about famous people from the past and enjoyed learning about Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Isambard Brunel. We went on a fantastic trip to the SS Great Britain to see one of Brunel’s greatest inventions and compared life in the Victorian times with life today. Since then we have been thinking lots about how these key people have influenced the modern world.
We also went on a trip to the Forest where we learnt how to make a wooden mallets and took part in a cross country race.
In literacy we have been following and writing new recipes and baking some delicious flapjacks and gingerbread men.
In PE we have been learning yoga positions and putting together our own sequences.
