December 2019

We’ve had an amazing half term and we are so proud of all the children’s hard work. Our topic, ‘The Great Fire of London’, has been a burning success! We really enjoyed recreating the bucket chain and watching the Tudor houses burn down.

We were very lucky to invite a workshop into school where we could learn even more about The Great Fire of London. Did you know that people buried their cheese in their gardens to stop it being destroyed by the fire? We used all our knowledge to plan a new London that would be fit for King Charles II, these laws included: wider roads, no jetties, no wooden houses and a monument to remember the fateful day.

Each class wrote a poem and created artwork as a way to commemorate Remembrance Day. These were shared during a whole school assembly and a two-minute silence took place for a moment of reflection. 

We were fortunate enough to be invited to New Malden Baptist Church where we learnt about why Christians celebrate Christmas. On our trip we were taken on a journey that outlined the Christmas Story.

The Year 2 Team would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your continued support, especially on special days such as MUFTI days, sponsored spell, FUDGE day, the Church visit, the Christmas Show, and party day.

Have a lovely holiday and New Year we look forward to seeing you all in 2020.
