Thursday 10th February

For the last five weeks the Year 2s have been learning about News Reports, finding out lots of facts about the Great Fire of London, how to structure a News Report and what the features of Non Fiction texts are. This concluded with an amazing Hot Write, reporting about the events after the Great Fire of London. They all did brilliantly, here are a couple of their green screen News Reports. Haven't they done well! 


Friday 11th February 

To conclude our learning about the Great Fire of London, the children had created their own model Tudor houses, considering the features such as wattle and daub, thatch and small windows. We then created our own Pudding Lane on the yard, starting a fire at Thomas Farriners house on Pudding Lane. It really helped the children understand how houses built of wood would set fire so easily and being so close together meant the fire spread fast! 

Week beginning 28th March 2022- Postcard writing

This term we have been learning about the continents and oceans of the world and considering where we would go visit. After innovating the story of ‘Somebody Swallowed Stanley we then looked at postcards using ‘Meerkat Mail’ as our shared text. The children did really well writing their fictional postcards, a couple have recorded with green screen for you to enjoy.
