The Firefighters visit

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.

The Great Fire of Marston

Great Fire of London Workshop

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. 

Swift Workshop

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. 

Autumn Poetry

This week we have been learning how to read and oerform poetry. Here we are learning poems about autumn. 

Our poems

Marvellous Marston

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.
