We have really enjoyed our first two weeks in year 2! We started our Autumn topic, Ahoy Newark!, by learning and reading about pirates. We wrote about what we would look like if we were a pirate and what we would do. We also helped create our classroom displays using arts and crafts, ready to display our work.
We are now expert flapjack creators!
As part of Ahoy! Newark, we have designed, made and evaluated an alternative to the well-known pirate biscuit hardtack. We began by researching and comparing hardtack and shop bought flapjack. With our findings, we then designed and planned our own flapjack. Once we had our final design, we gathered our ingredients and made our flapjack. When it was cooked, we tasted and evaluated our efforts.
Musical Theatre Workshop
This week, all the children (and adults!) in Year Two participated in a musical theatre workshop lead by Copper Studios. We sang and acted the afternoon away, learning a song from the musical "Matilda" which was so much fun! Take a look at us in action below!
