Welcome to Class 2

2019/2020

Fire of London Tudor Houses - November 2019

 

As part of their topic on the Great Fire of London, the children have enjoyed designing and making their own Tudor houses.

 

They began by researching the features of Tudor houses before designing their own house. They then made their own Tudor houses using a range of tools and equipment.

 

 

The Fire Station - October 2019

 

Class 2 recently visited the Fire Station and we had lots of fun!

Sunflowers - June 2019

 

As part of the Art's Week at Ravensmere, the children have been learning all about Vincent Van Gogh with a focus on his painting 'Sunflower's. Year 2 have recreated this with some beautiful paintings of their own.

 

 

Victorian Day - May 2019

 

On Tuesday 21st May, the children stepped back in time to experience what it would have been like as a child to go to school during the Victorian times. They were all given a Victorian name for the day and took part in a range of activities from arithmetic to observational drawing and then in the afternoon making peg dolls and spinning tops. The children followed the rules of a Victorian classroom for the day and even got to try gruel for their snack! The children absolutely loved the day and learnt so much through first hand experiences. A massive thank you to all of the parents for their support with organising the brilliant costumes.

Gressenhall Visit - April 2019

 

On Monday 29th April, we took Year 1 and Year 2 to Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse as part of our topic on Victorians. This was a brilliant opportunity for the children to experience what it was like to have lived in Victorian times. 

 

 

 

We're All Special

We worked really hard together as a school to produce this lovely display as part of our learning on everyone being different, but equally special. All children in the school then wrote down what made one of their friends special.

 

KS1 Social and Personal Festival - 9th January 2019

The children in Year 2 had a brilliant time at the KS1 Personal and Social Festival. They were able to participate in a range of activities, led by qualified instructors, designed to raise their enjoyment and engagement in physical activities.

A Little Bird Told Me

Year 2, along with the rest of the school, worked so hard to put on a brilliant production of A Little Bird Told Me. We were so proud of the way in which they learnt the songs, learnt their lines and spoke up so confidently and clearly during the performances. Well done everyone!

Norwich Castle - March 2018

 

On Thursday 8th March, Ravensmere Infant School visited Norwich Castle as part of their learning on Castles.

 

We had a fantastic time meeting some of the residents of the castle and learning all about what life was like living in the castle.

 

The children had the opportunity to handle and explore various objects that were several hundred years old as well as having a go at making their own pennant. They also learnt what it was like to work in the castle and about the types of jobs that different people had.

 

We all had a brilliant day and have enjoyed bringing what we learnt on the trip back in to the classroom.

 

  

 

 

Light and Dark - January 2018

 

As part of their ongoing learning on space, Class 1 and Class 2 took part in  a morning of scientific investigations, including an experiment on  light and dark.

 

The children were encouraged to make predictions about which materials would best block the light.

 

They then tested their materials by making a den with each material and seeing which blocked most of the light.

 

  

Alien Crash Landing - 30th January 2018 

 

Ravensmere got a surprise this week as an alien spaceship crash landed in their playground!

 

The children approached the spaceship very carefully and listened to see if they could hear anything inside it.

 

They then cordoned off the area and made signs to let the aliens know they were welcome and not to be scared!
