Chestnut Class (Yr 2) - Mrs Mustoe


Autumn 2019


We have had a wonderful but very busy start to Year 2! The class have settled in fantastically and have been working very hard on our first topic- Castles, Kings and Queens! We have found out what it took to be a Knight, wrote a story based on "The Dragons of Crumbling Castle" by Terry Pratchett and have produced a piece of art based on "The Castle and the Sun" by Paul Klee. This week has been even more exciting as we have had a trip to Windsor Castle and our Medieval Day! Below are some pictures to give you a taste of what we have done this week...

This week we have been in sunny Mexico! The children have had a fantastic week learning facts about Mexico and the village of Tocuaro. Did you know that over 20 million people live in Mexico City and that the taxis are green? Or that people drink Cactus juice? The children have done a wide range of activities including making Aztec pots, pyramids and pendants, learning some Spanish colours and numbers, making some amazing Day of the Dead skeleton masks, trying tacos, guacamole and salsa and concluded our week by writing a postcard explaining about what they had learned! We had such a busy week we are glad its half term and we can recover! Here are some pictures of us doing our learning...
