Exploring Priory Fields
To begin Year 2 we went for a walk around the school grounds. We used our senses to see what we could see, hear, feel and smell. We walked to the top playground and to the field. When we got back we planned a recount and used this to help us with our first writing pieces.
In PSHE we thought about what ‘Loyalty’ means. We came up with lots of ideas which we added to our Showcase book. We added the word Loyalty into our semantic dictionaries and drew a picture in our books to show what we learned.
In English we read Dr Dog by Babette Cole, it was very funny and we all enjoyed it. We were so lucky because the next day Dr Dog wrote us a letter asking us for help. We researched ways to be healthy and designed a leaflet for the Gumboyle Family helping them to stay fit and healthy!
In topic we have been learning about famous people from the past. We have learnt about Florence Nightingale and the changes she made to hospitals and nursing. We have also been busy learning about Edith Cavell and why she was such a brave nurse!
