In Year 2 we have been on the hunt for beasts - but don't be too scared, because these 'beasts' are only small! Mini-beasts are small invertebrates that live all around us, like insects or spiders, and we took our magnifying glasses out and about to hunt them down. Watch our video below to see what we found:
The Great Fire of London
The children have been learning all about the Great Fire of London this term, but decided to celebrate all that they have learnt in a much tastier way - baking their own bread! Famously, the fire is said to have started in a bakery on Pudding Lane in 1666, so we became bakers for the day - being careful to not start a Great Fire of our own!

The lords and ladies of Year 2 enjoyed a magnificent Medieval feast this term - a fitting way to celebrate all of the good work that the children have done during out theme of 'Turrets and Tiaras'. A feast fit for a King (Henry VIII) or Queen (Elizabeth I):
"Pull up the drawbridge!" was the cry in Year 2 this term, as the children looked to create mechanisms to do just that. Pulleys and gears were investigated as part of our Design and Technology project, and the children had lots of fun ensuring that their castles were nice and secure!
