Year 2 loved meeting the firefighters. We learnt all about what to do if there is a fire. How we can prevent fires and what we should avoid (matches and lighters). We loved going on the fire engine and sitting in the seats. We are going to use everything we have learnt to write a set of instructions on what to do if there is a fire. Don't forget to check your smoke detector.
We loved our visit from One Day Theatre company. We used our bodies to tell the stoy of the Great Fire of London through freezeframes. We loved learning about Samual Pepys and the fire on pudding lane. We especially loved when the people of London used Unity to put the fire out.
On October 2nd Year 2 went on a local walk around Marston. We looked at all the key features (both human and physical). We looked at the different houses and how they changed as we walked from Old Marston to New Marston. We loved picking up all the different coloured leaves, finding thatched cottages and cottages.
We went past the church and the old school building. We saw the library and Mortimor Hall nursery.
All the staff were very impressed with the behaviour shown by all the Year 2 children. Thank you for being so responsible, independent and respectful.
Sarah Dandy from the Health Trust came in to talk to us about swifts. Swifts are small birds and they live in old buildings that may be done up or knocked down. We made our own swift nests out of hay, leaves and willow.
Fir Class loved international day. We wore our traditional dress from different countries. Lots of us came in our Beavers uniforms.
We spent our afternoon celebrating the different cultures in our class: Check out our pictures below.
We celebrated Miss Duff's Scottish heritage by making porridge. We learnt about the history of porridge. Check if we can remember what a scurtle is!
We made Dutch windmills
