Year 2 - Miss Barnes, Mrs Bartlett, Miss Butler, Mrs Cloherty & Mrs Rumson

Yr2 Titanic

Year 2 have chosen 'Terrific Transport' as their new topic.

All aboard! Diving straight in to their learning, Year 2 became passengers of the R.M.S. Titanic and set sail on the infamous day of the 10th April 1912. From the merriment of third class to the luxury of first, Year 2 experienced the events and experiences of those who sailed on that fateful and unforgettable voyage.

Following this, Year 2 have transformed from passengers into historical detectives, and are now becoming experts on how this infamous ship came about and everything that happened leading up to its long awaited discovery at the bottom of the sea 70 years after she sank. Our role play area and 'Titanic Dance' in P.E are teleporting us back to 1912 and allowing us to ‘walk in their shoes’. Our school trip to the SeaCity Museum in Southampton will enhance this even more and we are very much looking forward to our visit!

To help us empathise with the people of whom were on board, we will be writing diary entries in role as a first, second or third class passenger in Literacy. We will learn how to describe our experiences vividly and portray our emotions through our recounts.

Art will involve creating collages of the R.M.S. Titanic, selecting and cutting to size a range of materials to bring her to life.

We look forward to sharing our learning on this exciting topic during an exhibition with our fellow Red Barn pupils and our parents. Watch this space!

PE will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays this term, but due to weather and timetable changes, these days could change so please can your child have their PE kit in school every day.

Homework will continue to be sent out and collected on Fridays. Book Club also happens every Friday during which your child’s reading bookmarks will be signed.
