Colchester Castle

This week in Class 2 we have visited Colchester Castle as part of our Romans and Boudicca learning in History. We started off the day looking around the many museum galleries with interactive displays. The children enjoyed dressing up and role playing! We then had a Story Tour journeying back 2000 years as we descended into the Roman vaults under the castle. This dramatic, interactive story tour explored the Roman invasion and Boudicca’s revolt. We finished the day off by reconstructing a large model Roman villa and Iron Age roundhouse. The children had a fantastic day and represented our school amazingly with their exemplary behaviour. Well done Year 2!

Science club

Lots of the children in Year 2 had a great time at science club on Monday during lunch time. The children learnt a lot about static electricity!

World Book Day

We have had a wonderful time today for World Book Day. We had great fun guessing the books all the children's quotes were from - some were easier than others! We listened to The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl and made our very own Roly Poly birds. 

Year 2 Christmas Party - thank you all for your kind donations of food - we had a wonderful time and even had an impromptu visit from Father Christmas himself!

19.11.18 - We have had a fantastic week on our DT project. The children have been investigating wheels and axles and explored the different types by making egg box buggies. We then designed our own vehicles and used these to create our masterpieces! The children used their accurate measuring skills to make a chassis, used saws safely to prepare their axles and their creative juices were flowing when they made the body of the vehicles. They look amazing! Well done Year 2.
