What a funny first term...
We think it is safe to say that we've never quite known a year like this! However peculiar it has been though, Year 2 have flourished. The children have recapped lots of previous knowledge and even started to gain much, much more.
We started the year with The Recovery curriculum. Through this, we looked at a beautiful text called 'The Invisible String', where two children learn that even if we can't see someone, if we love them we are connected and can even love them when they're no longer here. We discussed relationships we have with people we love and why we love them too! We talked about the qualities we see in people we love and why these were important to us.
Together, we wrote recipes for friendship and created a thankful tree, hanging on there people/things that we are really thankful for.
Even though life still isn't 'normal', life has continued, so our topic this half term has been 'Celebrations'.
We've celebrated firework night and learned all about how the tradition started, Diwali and why people celebrate it and of course, Christmas.
Look at some pictures of our own celebrations so far this term...
