This term in Year 2’s Willow class, we have been learning about local geography and history. We enjoyed visiting both Carlisle Castle and Carlisle Cathedral to learn more about these significant local places.
We explored the uses of building materials and found out about the significance of light within religions and festivals. During our second topic on ‘Fire’ we learned about the gunpowder plot and the Great Fire of London.
We have been singing and playing instruments with Mr Clarke, our visiting music teacher, and we also had a go at archery and fencing with Action Ants, and have been practising our gymnastics skills with Miss Foster.
We have been doing some of our learning outdoors and have enjoyed listening to and learning to re tell more stories to help us develop our own story writing skills.
We have been trying very hard to switch on our learning with our SUMO skills.
