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!
Please see our topic overview for more information!
KS1 Christmas Play - The Innspectors
KS1 produced a fantastic performance of our production The Innspectors. This is all about The Inn-spectors, who are in Bethlehem and they are not pleased. A stable is no place for visitors and their newborn baby, and, it really is a health and safety nightmare!
All the children performed amazingly with excellent acting, signing and instrument playing. We are very proud of the children and their accomplishments. Well done everyone!

Designing and Creating Tudor Houses
As part of our Topic on the Tudors, Year 2 have been looking at and investigating Tudor houses. In Design and Technology, we sketched designs of our houses, then used a range of materials such as, paper, cereal boxes, card, straw etc to create them.
We had great fun creating these Tudor houses in a variety of sizes for our display. The children really enjoyed this task and were thrilled with the final pieces!
Music - Ukulele
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!
European Day of Languages - Year 2 Germany
Opening for Finchale Memorial
In Year 2 we have begun the year by learning all about the significance of the Tudor Rose.
The children have 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 to create a rose garland. After this the children then used a range of collage materials to produce beautiful Stained Glass windows with the Tudor rose as the centrepiece. We also created a whole class Stained Glass window too.
The children had lots of fun and have really shown an understanding of the significance of the Tudor Rose.
Well done Year 2!
