Autumn

September 2021 - Meet the Teacher Presentation

Christmas Crafts! (wb.13.12.21)

Oxford Story Museum trip - Wednesday 1st December

 

On Wednesday, Horse Chestnut class and the rest of year 2 went to the Story Museum in Oxford. We all had an amazing time! 

When we arrived, we saw a storytelling show called 'Suddenly a Star'. This performance taught us lots of new stories, in musical and comedic ways. We all really enjoyed the show and loved joining in where we could/were asked to. 

 

After lunch, we had a storytelling session where someone from the story museum told us a story about 3 men who were trying to find the greatest gift. Once we had been told the story once, we retold the story using different actions.

We then visited some of the different rooms in the Story Museum, including the Whispering Wood where we found a wishing tree and a sword in a stone. If we could pull the sword out of the stone that meant we were worthy of becoming the next King/Queen. Unfortunately, none of us could get the sword out of the stone!

 

Finally, we visited a part of the Story Museum based around The Book of Hopes by Katherine Rundell. There were 4 different sheds for us to explore: the doodle shed where we could write on the walls, the dressing up shed, a shed where we could talk to aliens and a shed where we could think about our hopes and write short stories. 

Geography: In geography this week we learnt about the local area and mapped out where local landmarks were on a map. Following this, we learnt about compass points.

This week in Music we have been learning to sing two songs, both linked to the theme of friendship. When learning to sing the songs, we focused on finding the pulse of the music before looking more closely at different pitches (high and low).
Here we are singing 'Hey Friends!'
