During Stem week, year 2 explored the function and purpose of fountains in our world. To engage the children we decided to visit Cabot's square in Canary Wharf and see the wonderful fountain found there. The children explored such questions as 'How do you think the fountain works?' and 'what is the purpose of this fountain?' The children spent time sketching the fountain from different angles to really explore its workings. This visit helped the children be more engaged in their lessons when exploring fountains in the classroom.
The Great Fire of London
As part of our topic the 'Great Fire of London' Year 2 created their own model houses. These were then put together to make a scale model of the city of London as seen below. We then recreated the 'Great Fire' in our very own school playground! We had several fire wardens on hand to ensure the children's safety but sadly our houses didn't make the 'Great Fire of Sir John Heron!'
St Paul's Cathedral
Year 2 have recently been learning about the 'Great Fire of London' during their history lessons. As part of this topic Year 2 decided to visit St Paul's Cathedral which took considerable fire damage during the 'Great Fire'. This created a sense of awe and wonder in the children seeing this incredibly beautiful and ornate building in the flesh. The children impressed the adult guide there with their detailed knowledge of the events and made the teachers very proud!
Educational Visit to the Science Museum
Year 2 visited the Science Museum on Friday the 14th of September. It was an amazing opportunity for children to enjoy a unique experience of watching Legend of Apollo in the Discovery Motion Theatre. It was the ultimate multi-sensory experience where children were able to see, hear and even feel what it was like to be part of the ground-breaking Apollo missions of the 1960s and 1970s. Children also explored the different parts of the museum, this included the Wonderlab, Tomorrow's world, Flight and Making the Modern World. All of the experience gave children the chance to imagine what it was like for explorers around the world. We are now using this knowledge and understanding to look into greater depth in our new topic 'Intrepid Explorers'.
