This week, Christmas cheer has been creeping into the Year 2 classroom as we begin our preparations for the important festival for Christians.
In our R.E lessons, we have been learning about the advent wreath and what each part represents. We know there is a candle for each Sunday in Advent that represent love, hope, joy and peace. As a class we have been reflecting on how each of these values feature in our lives and how we might be able to demonstrate them ourselves.
This week we have also made some festive hats to wear to our Christmas lunch! We had a great time eating turkey, pulling crackers and eating delicious mince pies! It was extra special for some of us whose parents came to celebrate with us.
Have a look at us in our amazing hats.
This week in Year 2, we have been thinking about the importance of looking after our mental health. During circle time, we have discussed feelings and how we may deal with certain things that make us feel upset or uncomfortable. We decided that the best thing to do when we are experiencing feelings that we don’t understand or like, was to talk to someone we trust and think about ways to solve any problems we may have. In addition, we also practised lots of mindfulness techniques like controlled breathing and meditation.
We have been creating our own Pudding Lane Bakery in Year 2. We have made lots of bright, colourful flames to show just how fierce the fire was in the bakery. We can now pretend we were actually there when the fire started and can understand just how scary and frightening it must have been!
Year 2 have been learning about The Great Fire of London. We have been exploring what life was like in 1666 and why the fire started. We found out the fire started in a little bakery owned by Thomas Farriner on Pudding Lane. A tiny spark from his oven set the bakery on fire and eventually it spread all around London and destroying many homes and businesses.
At home, the children have been making fantastic houses that represent what a house would have looked like in 1666! Have a look at how amazing some of them are!
Thank you to all of the parents and families who have helped to make these wonderful creations!
