Once upon a tim ther was a brave queen who was very cros. The reason for this wos that a dreadful dragon was scaring and hurting her poeple. She shouted, "Enough! I will fight this best!"

 

The following day she hid in the woods ready to catch the dragon. She set a trapp. First she dug a huge whole in the ground. Then she covered it with leaves and gently sprinkled owld cookies over it. This was because dragons absolutley lov old rotten cookies. She then waited in for hours for the brutal beast to show itself. At dusk when the sun had almost disappeared there was a nose in the bushes....

Holloway Prison

Dear diary,

 

It has been 2 weeks since I have been in priosn with my fellow suffragettes. I am so frustrated and furious about our situation. Unbelievablly, I have not been allowed a pen or pencil until today and I have so mych to talk to you about.

 

To start with I should tell you about my arrest. There I was on a march determined to protest and make our voice heard that things need to change and that we have the right to vote, to study, to earn our own money and be free. My deer friend Elizabeth, who I was marching with, decided to chain herself to the city hall and I join her by padlocking myself to the railings. The police tried to move us but it was imposible! The officers were full of fury and it took three hours to cut us away from the fence. For this we were given three months in prison........

 

 

Thank you RM for your super work!

Thursday the 18th of June 2020

Hello all. I hope the week is going well. Today we are going to do some singing about the suffragettes. Please look at this popular protest song which featured in the Mary Poppins film. Please read it carefully and have a go at singing and reciting it! In the song there are great examples of suffixes such as "restless" and "grateful". Some key words to know before we start:

dauntless: to show a lot of determination

petticoat: A dress worn under another dress. (It was fashionable at the time!)

crusader: A fighter or activist

shackles: chains to hold down prisoners

fray: a battle or fight

meek: quiet and gentle

Mary Poppins - Sister Suffragette

Task 1: Sing and recite the song!
Task 2: Make a list of all the suffix words in the poem e.g. grateful

Task 3: Please make a suffragette rosette

Task 4: Please write your own suffragette song!

Wednesday the 17th of June 2020

Greetings all on this fine Wednesday. This week we have been looking at the suffragettes but what about the suffragists? The suffragists like Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks believed in non violence and peaceful protest. Please listen to me read a biography of the most famous suffragist, Millicent Fawcett. If you ever visit the houses of parliament in London you will find her statue outside.

Happy Monday everyone! This week we will look at more inspirational people who made a positive change.

Thursday the 3rd of June 2020

Hello all! Today we will look at another hero who is connected to Rosa Parks. If Rosa managed to help change rules to make sure everyone was treated the same on buses in the USA, this person stood up for justice and tried to get every rule in the USA to treat people equally. His name was Dr Martin Luther King Junior and he was inspired by Rosa to make the world better. He is one of the most famous people from the 20th century and his speech "I have a dream" is thought to be one of the finest speeches in history. Sadly, like Rosa, standing up for what was right was not easy and very dangerous. Tragically, he died for his beliefs but his dream lives on and I am sure if he saw our classrooms at Walkley full of kind people of different colours, cultures and beliefs, he would be very happy. Please watch the video of me reading an information text on this incredible man and then read the correct text according to your reading group. Finally, look at the tasks I would like you to try.

Monday the 1st of June 2020

Hello lovely year 2s! I hope you had a good break and enjoyed the sunshine.

 

If we had been in school we would have already started a topic called "People who positively changed the world" where we would have looked at people throughout the world who had or have been a force for good. One of the incredible people we would have done drama, art work, research and writing on is Rosa Parks. Please look below at me reading a biography (life story) on this brave and magnificent women who stood up against unfair rules in the USA over 60 years ago.

Summarising Chocolate Cake

Please use some of these key words in your summary:

Wednesday the 13th of May 2020

Hello super star year 2s! I hope you enjoyed reading the Chocolate cake poem yesterday. Today I would like you to find these words in the poems posted on Monday (Make sure you pick your group's text). Fastest finger everyone!:

 

chocolate    mum    yeah   nibble     licking    left    school

woke    door     crept    playtime  downstairs

 

After that, have you noticed the poem is full of strange sounds like "yoowww!" or "oooooommm!"? These are called onomatopeia. This means a word that resembles a sound it describes. When we describe animal sounds like "woof!" or "meow" these are onomatopeias. Also in comics you see them a lot. For example BAAM! or POW! In the chocolate cake poem, Michael Rosen uses them to describe the strange noises he is using when he excitedly eats the cake. Can you find them all in the poem?

 

Next please re-read the poem and answer these questions on google forms:

 

Finally, as an extra challenge, please try these Chocolate Cake tasks!

Look what got posted to LM!! Thank you for sending us these photos

Greetings Y2 readers!! 

 

For the next few days we will read and listen to poems. Today we are looking at the wonderful poem "Chocolate Cake" by the equally wonderful Michael Rosen. First of all, sit back and enjoy these two captivating (very interesting) performances of his poem! As you can see the two performances are slightly different. Why do you think that might be?

Click on this link and watch below: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zh43cdm

Please select the correct text for your group, read the poem carefully. Then read it with lots of expression and acting. Finally try to learn and recite part of the poem off by heart. As you can see, this written version is slightly different to Michael Rosen's performances. Therefore, you can add your own ideas and emotions to it as well to convey the feeling of temptation (wanting something badly) and worry. Also below you can see two attempts at poetry recital!
