Term 2

Remember, Remember the 5th of November!

At the start of the term we built a Guy for our learning lift off.

We went around to other classes and collected Penny for the Guy to buy ourselves a sweet treat… we got marshmallows!

We then went onto the field to have our bonfire.  The Guys were placed on the bonfire carefully and we sang the rhyme:

Remember, remember the 5th of November

Gunpowder, treason and plot

I see no reason

Why gunpowder treason

Should ever be forgot.

Term 2 – Learning Lift Off


To start off our learning about the Gunpowder Plot we built a Guy.

We stuffed the clothes with shredded paper and scrunched up newspaper and tied them all together.

Maths – Adding

In maths we have been learning how to add two numbers together. We used Numicon to work out the answer and we wrote the number sentence on our boards.

When we add the number gets bigger!

Maths – Subtraction

In maths we have been learning how to subtract. We used cubes to help us work out our number sentences and wrote the answers on our boards.

When we take away the number gets smaller!

History- Democracy

We spoke about what the word democracy means and why it is important to vote:

So everyone gets to make a decision.

So it’s fair.

Everyone gets a choice.

We then had a class vote on which book we would read. Each child placed a counter on the book they wanted to vote for.


The winning book with 13 votes was… TROLLS!

The Gunpowder Plot

We learnt the story of the Gunpowder Plot and had a go at acting out what happened.

We must kill the king!

We must go under the house!

Guy Fawkes we need gunpowder!

Put it in the basement under the house!

We need to kill the king!

Yeah, kill the king!

Put gunpowder under the house!

English – questions

We have been thinking about what a question is.

A question is something that you ask to find something out.

We had a go at asking each other some questions.

How old are you?

Would you have a cat or a dog?

Is it raining?

Do you live in Dover?

What are you having for dinner?

Who are you going to play with at playtime?
