User Rating:  / 1

All the children have come back to school ready and eager to continue their learning in Year 2. This half term we will be learning all about the Poles and the children will learn more about the Artic and Antarctic in their Geography lessons.

The children have also started a new Yoga class which will run up to the end of this half term. The children are instructed by Shelley, a member of Yoga Bugs who takes the children on a Yoga adventure each week, this week was a trip to the jungle!

We are continuing to work hard on out Maths and English and it is great to see the children keen to share with us the additional learning they are doing at home. Thank you for continuing to support your children with their homework and particularly with their reading. We are really working hard to encourage the children to read everyday, for practice and pleasure!

Back school after Christmas

Well, the holidays have been and gone. Happy New Year to you all!

The children have settled back into school really well and are prepared for all the hard work and fun learning ahead of them. In maths we are continuing our work on multiplication and division. In English we are learning how to write really effective suspense stories and in Science we are learning about rocks and soils. Our new geography unit is focusing on the two Polar regions the Arctic and the Antarctic. 

We've got plenty to be getting on with.

On Thursday, pupils from Year 2 represented the school at a Sutton schools multi skills competition. The team took part in 9 different relay based activities including football, throwing catching and sprinting. The team did brilliantly, performing with determination and joy.

Vincent van Gogh

User Rating:  / 1

For our 'Art in a Day' lessons we looked at the famous artist: Vincent van Gogh. We started by researching about him and his work. Interestingly, his work was mainly ignored until after his death. However, today it is celebrated as some of the finest artwork and his paintings are sold for millions of pounds. 

We analysed some of his painting using art vocabulary, practised skill techniques such as colour tints and brush work. Finally we replicated one of his famous paintings and created some of our own masterpieces. 

Starting in Year 2

Post SATs Fun

User Rating:  / 1

Year 2 have enjoyed lots of fun activities since the end of the half term. The children (and staff) really enjoyed our pyjama parties with lots of treats being consumed! The children have participated in a house PE competition where the 2 year 2 classes were pitted against each other in a variety of athletic field events. We were really fortunate to have some amazing visitors come and speak to us about their careers and inspire the children with ideas for their future jobs. The children enjoyed learning about being a professional trombonist, CEo of a Logistics company and Professional songwriter and performer! This week the children have enjoyed tennis workshops and we are very much looking forward to our Dance Show dress rehearsal on Friday!

Cadbury World Trip

User Rating:  / 2

Year 2 enjoyed a great day at Cadbury world as part of our Going Loco topic. The children found out all about how chocolate is made and were able to see how it is moulded, tempered and used to make lots of chocolate products. The children enjoyed the 4d cinema and, of course, trying lots of chocolate!


KS1 Athletics Tournament

User Rating:  / 3

On Tuesday, 18 children from WCPS represented the school at the Bishop Vesey School and took part in a variety of athletics competitions. The children were fantastic, putting in huge effort in every race or field event. Many showed amazing perseverance in their races overcoming stage fright and injury to carry on and perform brilliantly. Miss Lindsey, Miss Stevens, Mr Cope and Mrs Edwards were all incredibly proud of them. It was particularly exciting to see the boys finish in 1st place and the group finish 3rd overall. Well done to all our superstar athletes And thank you to all the parents that gave up their time to get the children to the venue.


World Book Day Year 2

User Rating:  / 1

Wow, what great costumes! The children in Year 2 had a great day looking at the classic text 'The Owl and the Pussy Cat'. The children learnt to recite the poem and even created a version of their own. They also really enjoyed working out the classic problem of how to get a Fox, Chicken and bag of grain across a river without everything getting eaten. The children had to safely deliver a owl, a quince and a big bad wolf! The children also enjoyed sharing books with children from Year 6.
