Year 2 enjoy a Mad Hatter's Tea Party
During the Easter Term the topic for Year 2 was Oxford through the looking glass where they explored various historic buildings in our city. They learnt about the history of Oxford castle, why Oxford was a good place to settle, the history of Oxford university and the royalty who lived here, King Henry VIII and his link to Christ Church Cathedral and even what real tennis is.
In our two abridged versions of Alice in Wonderland, and Alice Through the Looking Glass the children escaped into these magical lands, wrote about their own unusual characters, designed their own wonderlands and wrote their very own adventure stories.
The Mad Hatters Tea Party was their final celebration and what a celebration it was. The children were so surprised to see the dining hall decked out like the crazy tea party in Alice in Wonderland.
