Children in Need  Friday 16th November 2018

All the children looked brilliantly spotty in their children in need clothes.

We found out about what other people do to raise money for children in need, completed some challenges and made spotty biscuits.

Our class raised £27. Well done everyone!


W/b 12th November Anti-bullying week

All the class have pledged to chose respect and treat everybody in school with kindness.

8th November 2018 History Subject Day

It is a 100 years since the end of World War 1. In remembrance, all the children did work on this subject to remember this special day.

Year 2 answered the question why do soldiers wear medals and the children all made their own medal. Here they are wearing them.

5th November 2018

These two children wrote a fantastic senses firework poem. Read it below.

Poem 1

I can see bursting fireworks in the darkness.

I can smell the heat of the hot dogs in the darkness.

I can taste the soft marshmallows in my mouth.

I can hear a crashing bonfire in the darkness.

Poem 2

I can see twinkling fireworks in the dark night.

I can hear children clapping in the dark night.

I can smell smoky fireworks in the dark night.

I can taste delicious hot dogs in the dark night.

I can feel my cosy soft coat.

Trip to Morrisons 8.10.18

On Monday year 2 walked up to Morrisons. We have been learning about the five food groups and went to Morrisons to look at the fruit available there and to taste some unusual fruit. We tasted pineapple, coconut, pomegranate seeds, mango and watermelon.

Forest Schools

Have a look at the photographs below to see what Year 2 have been getting up to in their Forest Schools sessions. (den building, apple crumble making, making and flying kites).

Our first session today.

The children explored the garden looking for creatures, picked and tasted the apples and drew a picture on fabric of their favourite part of the session. These pieces of fabric will be sewn together to make a hanging.
