Well done Year 2 children for your superb performance at the School Sports Partnership Dance Festival. You called yourselves the Finchale Warriors and danced on stage at the Gala Theatre to “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten.

Your performance was outstanding and you received a well-deserved prize for the Most Original Routine. You perfected your dance/stage skills and the obvious enjoyment showed on your faces when you had the opportunity to perform the routine again in school for your parents/family.

This Autumn term we are going to be finding out all about the Tudors discovering: who the Tudors were, their significant role in British history and what life was like in the Tudor period.

It's such a fantastic topic so I am very excited to get started!

Year 2 were very excited this year to discover we would be getting the chance to learn how to play the ukulele! We have had a couple of lessons so far where we have learnt how to hold a ukulele and how to strum it correctly. The children are all doing very well and are thrilled to be learning how to play this instrument. We look forward to showing you our fabulous new skills soon!

The Tudor Rose

In Year 2 we have been learning all about the significance of the Tudor Rose. The children discovered that the Tudor rose was created by Henry VII when he married Elizabeth of York therefore combining the Lancaster and York rose to create the Tudor rose.

Year 2 created their own Tudor rose using a range of coloured card and demonstrating their excellent cutting skills. After this the children then used a range of collage materials to produce beautiful Stained Glass windows with the Tudor rose as the centrepiece.

This was a really enjoyable task and the final products were fantastic.

Well done Year 2!

Tudor Shields

In year 2, as part of our science work, we have been learning about different materials. In our topic work we have also discovered the importance of shields in Tudor times so we decided to create our own shields using a weaving technique. We had great fun doing this and the final pieces look amazing!
