Autumn Term 2nd half 2018
Year 2 DT Day
In Year 2, we made Fie Engines as part of our topic on the Great Fire of London. The children made their own chassis, with wheels and axels. As part of the decoration, they also created a winding hose.
Year 2 Heraldry T Day
On Thursday 11th October, Year 2 had their first Topic ‘T’ Day. After learning about Richard III in History this term, we focussed on Heraldry.
We began the day with a challenge to see how much we had learned about Richard III. The children knew lots of fantastic facts and could talk confidently about Richard and his life.
Then, we learned about coats of arms, shields and the meanings of the different colours and animals they have on them.
Next, the children planned and designed their own shields, thinking about how they would like to be represented, e.g. as brave, honest or a protector.
Then came the tricky task of enlarging their designs onto a piece of card!
After lunch, the children painted their shields.
We had a fantastic day!
“I enjoyed the painting, it was fun.”
“I enjoyed planning the shield and learning what the different colours meant.”
“I enjoyed doing one thing all day.”
