Year 2 Combine Traditional and Modern Learning Techniques

26 January 2016

The focus in Year 2 this week has been storytelling through Aesop’s Fables. The children began the week with a re-enactment of ‘The Hare and the Tortoise’ thanks to some willing teacher volunteers! 

  • Year 2

This led to the children debating over the moral of the story and expressing their opinions as to whether they agreed or disagreed with the actions of the characters. Following on from this, the children created their own short story with a moral. They then created a setting for their moral by using printing techniques to design a background for their story, adding 3D props.

Michelle Liu from 2B said ‘I really liked printing my own setting and I liked printing my trees with a sponge. It looks great! ’

This will lead to the children making their own puppets next week.

Watch this space for some exciting puppet mastery.
