Welcome to Year 2 - 2019
Calling all Heroes!
This term Year 2 will be finding out about the heroes we have in our everyday lives, including those from the emergency services. We will be discussing what qualities are needed to be a hero and will compare them to our own personal qualities. In English, we will be exploring superhero texts so that the children can write their own hero inspired stories.
We have been lucky enough to have some everyday hero visitors come in to school to share their experiences with the children.
Firstly, we were visited by a nurse. We asked her questions about her job and she told us information about being a nurse in the present day. In Topic, we were able to compare to our learning with Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.
Next, we were visited by our local PSCO, Colin. He brought in some of the equipment that police officers use and the children were able to try these on!
After half term, we will be visited by a fireman which we're sure will be very interesting for Year 2!
All of our everyday hero visitors have inspired our children to be heroes themselves.
Superhero Day was on Friday 27th September.
The children made their own superhero cape, a mask and created their symbol on a biscuit using icing. Please see our Twitter feeds for all the fun photos that were taken.
