Black History Day

Today Children in Year 2 learned about Windrush and the Windrush generation. They took part in some role play and were really sensible during class discussions. We then made some anti racism posters. In the afternoon we celebrated some Caribbean Culture – listening to reggae, steel pans. We watched some videos of the Leeds Carnival and made our own head dresses and even tasted plantain, ginger cake and coconut water.

SUPERHERO DAY!!

Year 2 had a great day on Superhero Day. All the children looked amazing in their costumes. We designed and made our own mask for a superhero. Then we went on a search for super villains in the school grounds. The Evil Pea was up to his old tricks again and had left us some coded messages to solve. Fortunately we were able to decipher his code and let Supertato know what he was planning!! We finished the day with a Superhero song and dance to celebrate our super powers!!

 

 

Superhero Visits Year 2:

What a day Year 2 have had. They had a very exciting visitor – a superhero called ” Healthy Hannah”!  Sadly Hannah was not as healthy as we had expected. Mrs.Winstanley was very disappointed and will be speaking to the Superhero agency. We are hoping that the children can help Hannah come up with some ideas of how to be healthier. We’ll keep you posted!
