Year 2 enjoy the Daily Mile!

Year 2 on: Learning in Year 2

Since starting the new school year, Year 2 have been going out every afternoon to run the Daily Mile. If the children manage to run 10 laps around Archibald Park, then they know that they have done exactly one mile!

Even the adults have enjoyed jogging round with the children and counting how many laps they can do in 15 minutes. Already some children have noticed that their fitness has improved!

"At first, I could only do about five laps but now I can do 11!"

"I like doing the Daily Mile because it gives me energy and I get to talk to my friends."

London Calling!

Year 2 on: Learning in Year 2

This term we have been learning about the Great Fire of London. We went on a trip to see a special exhibition called 'Fire, Fire!' at the Museum of London.

We then decided to make our own version of what happened! We made 3D model houses using nets and placed them close together just like the houses were built in 1666.

Afterwards, we took our miniature city outside and recreated the historic event!

Our visit to the Bevis Marks Synagogue

Year 2 on: Learning in Year 2

As part of our RE Topic, looking at Judaism, Year 2 visited the Bevis Marks Synagogue in Aldgate.

We learned that this is the oldest synagogue in London, having been built in the 1700s. We were shown some of the important parts of the building and even got to see a small Torah used in children's services. The Torah is the holy book for Jews. When we returned to school we had fun exploring lots of Jewish artefacts and comparing how a synagogue is different and similar to a church and mosque.
