Year 2's History Trip!

Year 2 had a fantastic experience at Staircase House in Stockport! In the morning, we learnt all about the Great Fire of London, where the children took on roles and dressed up as historical characters. In the afternoon, we delved into the world of 17th century firearms and the children were able to design their own! We also learnt about historical construction techniques and created our own wattle and daub panel.


Year 2R created portraits in the style of Paul Cezanne’s ‘Mont Saint-Victoire’

We love our weekly visits to the library šŸ“š

We enjoy reading for pleasure in 2R šŸ“ššŸ“š

In PSHE, we recognised that secrets can be both good and bad. Good secrets might be a nice surprise and something that would make a person happy. They are usually only kept for a short time. Bad secrets are about something that should not be happening. They make you feel sad, hurt or worried. We shared lots of scenario secrets and each individual decided if it was a good secret or a bad secret. We all agreed that we should speak to someone we trust about any secrets bothering us.

In PSHE, we have been looking at ways to stay safe both online and in real life!
