Our World Music Workshop
Year 2 had a fantastic start to their topic ‘Once Upon a Dragon’ with Jim Bernadin from World Music Workshops. The children learnt all about Chinese drumming. They learnt Chinese words for the drums and performed as a whole class.

This week the classrooms have turned into museums! Children have looked at a range of artefacts from 1820-1910 as part of their learning about Florence Nightingale. They have learnt about marrow scoops, bed pans, quills and much more!
Year 2 - Florence Nightingale
To end our topic of ‘London: Past and present’ the Year 2 children enjoyed an afternoon of Lego. The children used their knowledge of what they had learnt throughout the term to create London from Lego. There were old buildings and new, including the capital’s landmarks. They built either side of the River Thames and incorporated significant figures from history. Can you sport King Charles and Christopher Wren in our photos? A huge thank you to our school librarian, Mrs Couldrey, for supplying enough Lego for all 90 children!

Our 'Great Fire of London' Workshop
Year 2 enjoyed a theatre workshop based on the Great Fire of London. The maid from Thomas Farriner’s bakery took the children back in time to 1666 on Pudding Lane to experience what happened from when the fire started on Sunday 2nd September to when the fire was finally put out on Thursday 6th September. The children enjoyed taking part in the workshop and remembered so many facts from the day!
