It has been wonderful welcoming the children back to school. Year 2 have produced some lovely work since they have returned.
They are really enjoying their Class Novel 'Flat Stanley' by Jeff Brown.
' It is a hilarious book about Stanley being flat. His brother is also jealous of Stanley. I recommend this novel to other children. It makes me feel like I want to be flat as he has so much fun.' Katie (2C)
This term has been a little different. The children have really worked hard at home and when they returned to school. We have added a few Galleries to celebrate their work this term. We have also included some Theme Day photographs to show how we at The Lady of the Visitation enjoyed our Liturgical celebrations.
We have had a brilliant start to Year 2 where we have been learning lots of new things.
We answered a very important question in our topic work on The Great Fire of London.
"Did the Great Fire help to improve London today?"
The children were amazed to learn all about the impact of the Great Fire and how these changes are visible in the city today. They observed the new cathedral and London Bridge and that buildings are now constructed from bricks.
In our Art topic on London Landmark buildings they looked at the work of the Australian artist Ken Done. They then made their own landmark drawings and paintings of famous landmarks such as: Tower Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral and The Tower of London.
This half term we will be commemorating Remembrance day in our class assembly which you will be able to access after we upload the recording.
The children created some beautiful poppy paintings in the style of Georgia O'Keefe.
We will display these in the class gallery.
We are really looking forward to designing and building the children's marble run bridges. They will be creating these over the course of the next few weeks related to their topic on constructing bridges.
