Year 2 Explorer Day

On the 7th of November, Year 2 were excited to participate in Explorer Day, learning all about Christopher Columbus who was a famous explorer. We were pleased to see many children making a big effort to dress up as different types of explorers and had thought really carefully about their outfits!

Both classes started the day by discovering interesting facts in a treasure hunt activity, using their map reading skills and working as a team - they learned a lot about Christopher Columbus' discoveries. For example, did you know that it took him 36 days to reach the Bahamas?

The children also started their two week art project of making a ship in a bottle. Making the paper boats was a real challenge - particularly the sails! - but after some hard work and effort, they have some very good examples. We are looking forward to seeing the end product.

Chetan and Amy would like to thank the parents for their continued support within Year 2.
