Year 2 Remember

This afternoon, Year 2 have been learning all about the importance of Remembrance Day. We have learnt that every year, we mark the end of World War 1 and honour all of the fallen on the 11th day of the 11th month. The children have produced some beautiful writing and have drawn their own poppies. Leyton has also brought in a fantastic poppy that he created this week during his Boys Brigade session. Well done children. I’m sure that on Sunday at 11am you will hold your two minute silence remembering all of the soldiers who have died.

Guy Fawkes – hero or villain?

In R.E in Year 4, we have been looking at whether Guy Fawkes was a hero or villain.

After much discussion, we found that Guy Fawkes and the King could have handled their situation in a better, more peaceful way.

Today we agreed that talking our problems through with others is the best solution to any problem.

 

Year 2 Cultural Diversity

Year 2 are really enjoying our special cultural diversity focus this week. Yesterday we spent the morning learning all about the different cultures in and around our local area. We learnt about mining in the Potteries, the art of lithographing, traditional British culture, the different religions followed in Britain and the different types of clothing worn throughout Britain . This was all then followed by a traditional British lunch – fish and chips!

Diversity Day

Well what a busy day!
We went into the Hall for a culture and diversity workshop, there was so much to see and do. From dressing up to discovering all about flags! Coal miners lamps to hold and pottery to share!
Thank you to all the adults involved and our school council.
Tomorrow we’re painting plates in the style of Emma Bridgewater, after an oatcake picnic.
