This half-term in History, the Year 2 children have been learning about the recent past. In particular, they have discovered what seaside holidays were like during the 1950s and 1960s. They have learned about Punch and Judy shows, helter-skelters and donkey rides. Many children have also been busy at home making their very own projects based on this topic. You can see some examples of their wonderful work above. Well done everyone!
Earlier this week, Years 1 and 2 took part in a fun road safety workshop run by the Islington Road Safety Team. This fun puppet show featured music and poetry and focused on key safety issues such as:
- How to be a safe pedestrian, including the correct and incorrect ways to walk, scoot and cycle near roads.
- Stop, Look, Listen, Think and finding the safest places to cross.
- The ‘safe side’ of the pavement, holding hands and using pedestrian crossings.
As part of Caritas In Action, Year 2 looked at their rights and responsibilities. They learned that rights are needs or the things that we should all have. These are things like the right to learn by going to school, or the right to be safe. They also recognised that we also have responsibilities. These are things we are expected to do, such as following rules or being kind and helpful to others. The children designed their own posters to showcase some of the rights and responsibilities they consider to be the most important.
