On Thursday 11th October Y2 had a Writing Workshop. We had parents and family members come and join us for the morning. Children and adults worked together throughout the morning to practice their pencil grip, handwriting, karate punctuation and to then to do some writing about Traction Man. Well done to all the children and adults for working hard!
Today we finished our final lesson about Rosa Parks. We were thinking about how she must have felt. In order to do this we gave some children at random a bib to wear. These children had special privileges such as not needing to sit on the carpet, having a teddy bear to work with them, water bottle on the table and extra play - because they were wearing a bib. There was lots of emotion in todays english lesson where children were thinking about if it was fair or not.
In the end we all decided that it wasn't fair. "We are all the same underneath, it doesn't matter what we wear or look like" said Ella. Adam even decided to take his bib off and give it back as he didn't want the privileges anymore.
We then thought about how what we had done had been like what Rosa Parks and the people in Alabama in the 1950's. The children said she must have been really upset, sad and frustrated. Year 2 worked hard this morning thinking about others. We all decided we preferred to be treated all the same!
On Thursday 4th October there were no Y2's in school. Instead the classroom was filled was superheroes of all kinds. In the morning we completed superhero activities including a superhero passport and Superhero training camp. In the afternoon we were going to go on a local walk to see how we could improve the area but we recieved a letter from Dr. Doom. Unless we completed a mission he was going to take away all playtimes! For this mission we had to find clues hidden all over Ranmoor. On one side was a written clue telling us where to head to. On the other side was part of a picture. When we had collected all of the clues we pieced them together to reveal the location of Dr Doom's lair! Thankfully the Superheroes completed the mission and saved Playtimes!! Well done Superheroes and for your sidekicks at home helping to make you look so fabulous!!
On Tuesday 12th June we went to Ponds Forge by bus. We learned some new skills whilst we there like starjump skipping, jogging skipping and legs apart forwrads and sideways skipping. We were also in a competition where we did speed bounce, double bounce, face to face, side swing, hop and swap, run and jump out and keep the pot boiling. We all had an event to compete in. We had lots of fun today!
