Spring 2 WB 22nd March 2021
This week has been very busy indeed! We had many quizzes this week which was the start of our Superhero Awareness Training. The children tested their reading, writing, spelling and mathematical knowledge of all the things we have learnt so far in Year 2. The children worked exceptionally hard and demonstrated their Growth Mindset!
In our topic work this week we learnt about the Great Plague. The children discovered when the plague started and how it ended. We were able to discuss the affect that this had on London and explain the ways in which the people became infected. We learnt of the strange myths that people believed that would cure them.
The children then recapped on the whole topic and were able to show they could sequence the events on a time line.
17th Century Jobs
Year 2 explored the different jobs that were available in 1666. We compared the ways in which people live now and how they lived in the past. Some of the different roles included:
- Chimney Sweep
- Witch Doctor
- Rat Catcher
- Scullery Maid
Have a wonderful Easter Break!
