Through God’s love we learn together, grow together and achieve together.

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!


The plague

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.

Time Line

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!
