Project 2 - Black History Month 2020
Year 2 received a mysterious delivery... this box! It contained a tool, some water and biscuits... plus an interesting new book; 'Henry's Freedom Box'.
After close investigation and excellent prediction making, we finally discovered its owner... Henry 'Box' Brown.
We created this Story Map to help us memorise his adventurous story of his journey from Slavery in Virginia, to Freedom in Philadelphia.
Project 2 - Black History & Equality
Year 2 will be thinking about their new Essential Question:
"What does a successful person look like?"
We will be studying the lives of Henry 'Box' Brown and Emmanuel Ofosu - two very successful men, who have faced many challenges in their lives but have used their positivity and determination to overcome them and succeed at their goals. We will be studying these 2 beautiful stories:
Our Class Story:
Lubna and Pebble
Year 2 cannot wait to bring this book home to read with you! We have been studying Lubna's heart-warming tale of her best friend, Pebble, who keeps her safe and comforted as she experiences living away from home. When she meets little Amir and makes a new friend, she realises that Pebble could help him too...
We cannot wait to start sharing this term's Learning Journey with you.
For our first project, we will be thinking all about 'Rainbows' and giving thanks to all the everyday heroes during the pandemic.
Start thinking about our Essential Question: "Why do we say thank you?"
YEAR 2 - CLASS OF 2019 - 2020
A big hello to all of our parents and children in year 2 during this strange time. We want to help as much as we can so on this blog you will find some home learning tasks that your child will likely be familiar with and can complete independently throughout the week as well as weekly planned activities that your child can complete with some support. These activities are here as a guide only, you can pick and choose what you do and include your own ideas and activities. You know what is best for your family in these unusual times and it is important that everyone is happy and safe. We will pick up where we left off once school returns to normality so please do not put too much pressure on yourselves.
If you have any questions, comments or ideas then please email us at email@example.com with Year 2 in the subject box and we will reply as soon as possible.
We are missing the children and school very much so would also love for you to send us any photographs or videos of the things the children are getting up to at home.
Thank you for your understanding and support at this time, take care and stay safe.
Mrs Davis, Miss Ashman and the rest of the Year 2 team.
