Year 2

RE

Year 2 learned about the significance of Shrove Tuesday and why it’s also known as pancake day. They learned about the tradition of using up the eggs, milk, flour and sugar in preparation for the 40 days of Lent. Then, of course, they enjoyed some pancakes! Then they learned about the Christian tradition of Ash Wednesday. To really bring it alive, we burned real palm fronds and leaf pictures to symbolize the palm fronds lining Jesus’ path into Jerusalem. To finish, we collected the ash from the cooled fire and used it to make a special paint to anoint some faces with a cross. A great start to our learning about the Christian story and celebration of Easter.

Debden Camping Visit 

Year 2 had the most amazing camping adventure in Debden. The children got to experience the great outdoors, climbing trees, orienteering, barbecuing food, eating alfresco and  practising their rolly-polly skills down a hill! All who came fully participated in the whole experience. The teachers were super proud of them. In the evening every sat around the camp fire toasting marshmallows whilst the teachers told spooky stories, before settling down for the night.
