Welcome to Beech!
We have started off our new topic - The Great Fire of London - with a BANG! We made our very own version of Pudding Lane and (with the help of Mr Rule!) we watched the fire spread, and burn the houses down.
We have been learning about the sequence of events of the Great Fire of London, key people such as Samuel Pepys, and we have been writing our own diary entries to describe what happened on each day and how we would have felt if we had been there.
We will be moving on to learn about and compare the fire service in 1666 to our fire service today, and we will be writing non-chronological reports with lots of information that we will be finding out.
Some of you have created wonderful pictures depicting the Great Fire of London at home. They look amazing pegged up in our classroom! Thank you for putting so much work into these :)
The children have been accessing a brilliant game about the Great Fire of London. Why not have a go at home? It can be found here:
What a great start to Year 2 we have had!
You have all settled in really well into Beech Class and have done so much fabulous work surrounding our topic of 'Wicked Wolves and Wise Owls'. We LOVED seeing the Wolves and Owls at the New Forest Wildlife Park. Take a look at the photos!
Your home learning projects were fantastic! A huge well done for the effort gone in at home to produce these! We loved listening to each other's presentations about our home learning: asking and answering questions. Here are a few pictures of Beech Class looking very proud of their projects!
