Welcome back! We hope that all children and their families enjoyed a relaxing and fun packed break.  We have really enjoyed hearing about all of the things you got up to in the holiday today.  2015 is going to be a busy year for year 2 with SATs tests to sit in May.  We have got lots of lovely things coming up at school over the next few weeks and months, starting with our brand ne topic 'Poles Apart!'. Children will have brought home a booklet to share at home showing all the things that they will be learning.

A huge well done to all the KS1 children for their performance of 'Born in a Barn'. What an amazing production!

Year 2 have been busy preparing cards and calendars ready to bring home. They all had great fun on Tuesday at the Christmas parties. Many thanks to the PTA for providing the disco. We even had a special visitor!

Thank you to all the children for their hard work this term and also to parents for your support at home. We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Pots of Care

User Rating:  / 1

This week Year 2 have enjoyed planting their Marie Curie Pots of care. We had to fill the pot with soil and carefully plant the daffodil bulb in the middle. Children will have brought the pots home on Friday. Remember to look after them and care for them and then in the Spring you should have a beautiful daffodil flower!

For more information on the Marie Curie Pots of care please [click here].

Telling the time

User Rating:  / 1

This week Year 2 have started to look at time. We thought about the difference between an analogue clock and a digital clock. We read the time from a digital clock then put that time on our own small analogue clock. It was tricky remembering which was the hour hand and which was the minute hand! If you would like to play a time game looking at digital and analogue please [click here].

Uniform Debate

User Rating:  / 1

As part of our Literacy work this week we thought about our school uniform. We had to decide if we thought we should wear school uniform or not and give reasons for our choices. In groups we then presented our ideas to the rest of the class and had to try and persuade them to agree with us. What do you think? Should we wear school unform?

On Friday, every school in our Learning Trust for Excellence held a special trust day. Every year was given one of our trust values to focus on. Year 2 were given 'equity'. We found out that equity means being fair. We are all different but everybody should be treated fairly. We enjoyed thinking about the things that we enjoy and are good at. At the end of the day there was a special assembly where we shared what we had found out and heard about the values that other classes had looked at.
