On Friday 3rd December, 20 children from Year 2 had their first forest school session.
We had so much fun exploring the muddy forest, climbing trees and jumping from the treehouse. We are looking forward to doing more outdoor learning at forest school in the future.
Today in Literacy we went to the ‘Matrix’ – the Museum of Advanced Technological Realisation and Interactive Exchange.
At the museum we tried out a new virtual reality exhibition about the Great Fire of London. We put on virtual reality helmets and was transported back to the sights and sounds of 1666.
First, we had to escape from our home, which was in danger of catching fire.
To escape we:
- Jumped out of bed because we heard people shouting "Fire! Fire!"
-Then we opened the window and climbed out.
- We balanced and walked sideways on the roof.
-Bravely, we looked ahead and jumped to the next roof.
-Carefully, we then climbed down the timbers to the street.
Once on the ground we decided to travel towards the River Thames in the hope of getting across. On our way we were stopped in the street and and had to tackle the fire, using a human chain of buckets.
Later we tried to persuade the ferryman to take us across the river – but with no joy.
Before returning to Matrix and the modern day we decided to head to higher ground to the north of the city boundary.
In Miss B's Maths group, we had a great time working in partners playing a doubling game. We all worked together really well.
Welcome to Year 2 and our Magnolia class page! We are really looking forward to getting to know you and teaching you lots of interesting and fun things this year! Let's make this the best year yet
