Year 2 WOW Day June 2021
In Year 2, our topic book this half term is ‘Claude in the City’. To introduce our topic ‘Bonjour’, children had the opportunity to experience ‘A day in France’ to stimulate excitement for their new learning. We would like to thank @Challneyboys who released Mrs Brewer for the morning to share her expertise in teaching our children some French. A great example of team work across The West Area Partnership. Our children enjoyed asking questions about France and mimicked The Frere Jacques tune to sing the French days of the week song.
The children also spent the morning learning about famous landmarks in France and were able to take a trip around France using Google Earth. They were able to find the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum and Arch de Triumph and used this as an inspiration to craft their own models of these landmarks. They also produced various artworks using skills such as Pointillism. Children experienced French dining by learning and trying different food that people eat in France. They helped slice and dice fresh vegetables to make Ratatouille which they enjoyed eating with French baguette. To conclude our ‘Day in France’, Mrs Tidjani led a Year 2 performance of Sur le Pont d'Avignon.
