What a great first week back we have had! The children have settled back into routine and are working really hard. We've had the treat of a Panto and are busy working on our Class Assembly in readiness next week. You will absolutely love it :-).
What a delightful treat for a first week back! A panto.
The children had a lovely time on Wednesday morning watching Snow White. The laughter and smiles were seen from afar. They loved it.
What an action packed, fun filled Autumn term we have! 15 school weeks have passed us by in a flash. The children have been an absolute delight and have come so far in this time! We are so proud of each and everyone of them.
We wish you all a very Happy Christmas, have a wonderful time with your families and loved ones :-).
We will see you all in new year - Monday 7th January 2019.
What a great Christmas party we have all had! Dancing, games, fun and laughter...and a visit from Father Christmas.
The children loved every second.
Wow what a fantastic day we had!
Starting with boarding the train with their special golden ticket, everyone was in their pj's for a magical day. From start to finish, the day was just magical!
This morning the children came into a bowl of Porridge...….
Instantly they made the connection to Goldilocks and the Three Bears as our next traditional tale. Its safe to say the porridge wasn't as much as a hit to the children as it was to Goldilocks. Perhaps that was the lack of sugar! :-)
Although Rhys and Rowan completely cleared up their plates :-) Yummy, yummy.
Well the weather wasn't the best but off we all headed on our trip to the local area. First stop was Summer Lane Methodist church to drop off our bags before one class headed to the cemetery and the other stayed in church.
We all learnt so much about the cemetery and the church. Did you know there are famous people in our cemetery? Do you know when the cemetery opened? I am sure the children could tell you.
It wasn't long before we had lunch and headed to our next stop - St Mary's. Wow what a difference this church was, from the size and the amount of stain glass windows to the difference in organs. I bet you didn't know that the organ in the Methodist Church has between 400 to 500 pipes. We all had a turn at playing some of the pipes and enjoyed singing a song using the organ.
What a fantastic day we have had despite the weather. We are so proud of the children and how well behaved they all were.
This week has been Anti-Bullying week - the theme this year is RESPECT. We have talked about how important this is and what it means to us all. We are all friends together in Year 2 and have so much respect for everyone.
The children have designed friendship tiles for their friends after discussions with each other. They will then make these out of clay. We can't wait.
We all made poppies to make a large loveheart to show the care, love and respect we all have. This looks fabulous and will sit pride of place on our new topic board.
Finally we all made a friendship bracelet that links together to make a huge Year 2 friendship chain.
Take a look at some of our pictures. We can't wait for our work to be on show in the hall this afternoon for all the parents.
Oh my...we just couldn't believe our eyes this morning when we arrived to our classrooms being the subject of a "crime scene".
The children were surprised, shocked, excited and flabbergasted at what awaited them on arriving. The suspense was built even higher because we said parents weren't allowed! After all we wouldn't want our parents to become the "SUSPECTS".
The SUSPECT left various clues around the classroom for the children to go around and solve clues. They loved becoming "detectives".
The detectives spent time investigating and solving the various clues! We then came together to discuss the clues, evidence and suspects. Who was our "RULE BREAKER"?
THE BIG BAD WOLF!
What a fantastic morning everyone had and what a great hook into writing! :-)
