Spanish - Seasonal foods

Year Two have enjoyed a morning making apple roses with our Spanish teacher. They learnt that lots of apples are grown in Northern Spain and people often uses these apples to make foods for festivals. This time of year is harvest time! We learnt the Spanish names for the ingredients - manzana (apple), holjaldre (pastry), limon (lemon) and huevo (egg).

History and English - The Pool of Life (Local history of Liverpool

 

Today we worked with a drama company called Altru to produce a play called The Pool of Life. This documented the local history of Liverpool from the ice age, King John, The Beatles, football and  history of important buildings! We loved having fun while learning historical facts and improving our speaking and listening skills. At the end of the day we performed our play to the rest of the school. Thank you so much Barry!

Art - Producing a Liverpool Skyline

 

We looked at the Liverpool skyline and broke it down into the shapes that could be used to recreate it. We then used crayon to create our own. We evaluated our artwork and checked to see if we could identify the famous buildings in our own pieces.

Art - Observing the skyline of Liverpool

 

We worked in art partners to look closely at the skyline of Liverpool. We researched the name of the buildings that we could see and named the shapes that we could use to draw the skyline ourselves. We recognised that we could recreate the skyline by breaking the buildings into the shapes.

British Values - Democracy

Today we went to the polls to vote for our new year two school councillors. All of the children who wanted to be considered for the job had to complete an application form saying why they would make a good school councillor and what they would like to do. These application forms were submitted and then shortlisted. Those children on the shortlist presented their ideas to the class before voting. Well done to our two new councillors!

Polling Stations
