Musical Instruments

This Wednesday, Class 2 got the opportunity to play different musical instruments in our music session.

In History, we explored portraits of different English Monarchs and the children answered questions on their appearance, body language, expression and lots of other things.

On Tuesday afternoon, we learnt about English kings and queens throughout history.


The children were then given their own monarch and we ordered them on a big timeline on the playground from King Edmund Ironside to Queen Elizabeth II.


We have completed some brilliant learning this week in Class 2 and everyone has worked so hard. Well done on a fantastic week everyone!

Week 4

W/B: 21.09.20


P.E: Multi-Skills

Early this week, Class 2 completed a great multi-skills PE session in the sunshine.


We worked on our throwing and catching skills in a group game in which Miss Garratt or Miss White stood in the middle and threw a bean bag. If you caught it you stayed in the game and if not you had to sit down. If you could catch the beanbag sitting down you could stand up again!


The children then played our game in small groups and showed they have really developed their throwing and catching well!


Well done Class 2 on our fantastic week together!

Week 3

W/B: 14.09.20

This week, Class 2 completed a wonderful music session.


We learnt the signs to a song that celebrates South African Music called Hands, Feet, Heart by Joanna Mangona. Then, as a class, we created new lyrics for two more verses and we made signs for our new verses. 


Class 2 performed all of the song with the signs as a class and did a fantastic job as well as having so much fun whilst we performed together!
