London's Burning!

This half term, the children will be learning all about The Great Fire of London.  They will be using non-fiction texts to research this exciting event and creating their own reports based on their fact-finding.   Children will also be designing, making and evaluating their own Tudor house in design technology using found materials.  Furthermore, the children will be comparing London now and then and finding out about significant people in history including Samuel Pepys.

Maths

Underneath we have uploaded information about the maths unit the children are currently looking at.  The vocabulary and key learning strands are detailed on this page.  This week's unit is all about statistics - tally charts, pictograms and block graphs.

Great fire of London topic day (Jan 2020)

We had a fantastic day exploring the different jobs people did during the time of the great fire of London. The children had a go at candle making, using a pestle and mortar, leather marking, weaving and writing with a quill. Then during the afternoon they became archaeologists and examined evidence to find out about the people who lived in Tudor times.

Yoga in year 2 (Jan 2020)

This term, Jo T is visiting year 2, thanks to Friends of Milby who have organised 6 weekly sessions for each class.  Year 2 have luckily been chosen to go first and have thoroughly enjoyed their first session.  This half term 2F will be having their turn on a Monday and after half term 2E will begin their 6 weeks.  The children can't wait for the next session.

Christmas in year 2 (Dec 2019)

The children in year 2 have really enjoyed their Christmas crafts afternoon and thank Friends of Milby for all of their hard work organising such a fabulous afternoon.  This term the children in year 1 and 2 worked really hard to learn lots of singing lines, solos, dances and lines for their Christmas performance and the whole year 2 team would like to say a huge thank you to the parents and children for their hard work.

 

We hope you all have a lovely break with your families and wish you a Merry Christmas from us all!

Children in Need (Nov 2019)

Thank you to all of our parents for supporting this year's Children in Need, we had a very successful day.  All of the children enjoyed the events that ran through the course of the day.

Anti-Bullying week 2019

This year, for Anti-Bullying week year 2 designed a pair of odd socks, decided what they believed to be friendly and unfriendly behaviours and acted out how to respond to bullying behaviours they may encounter.  The children acted very maturely and understood this year's theme of 'Change starts with us'.

The Day the Crayons Quit (Nov 2019)

This half term the children have been taking on the role of different stationery within the classroom.  In the book all of the crayons have quit because they are unhappy with the way they are being used, the children created some freeze frames to portray how they think the crayons were feeling.

The Flower written by John Light and illustrated by Lisa Evans

 

The children have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and producing the work you see on display. They have all participated in an Everybody Writes week.  The children have created at least three   pieces of writing, read the story, produced art work and learned new things in relation to this ‘deceptively simple and haunting book’.
