James: Guess my number. It has 3 tens and 2 ones. Who am I?

Freddie: It has 4 tens. It is bigger than 43. It is smaller than 47. My number is ….

In religion this week we have been learning about the Sacraments of Initiation. The children looked at the symbols for Baptism, The Eucharist and Confirmation. Inspired by stained glass windows the children created some beautiful artwork for our prayer table.

A busy week.  Starting with a visit to Willows Farm, where the children learn’t all about, ‘Animal Homes’.  KS1 held a music concert, it was lovely to see how the children have progressed over time with improving their music skills.  The children and staff assembled for a whole school photograph on the field.

This week, Year 2 had a special visitor Angela, an ex pupil who came to share her special memories with the children. They had plenty of questions prepared for her and she was very happy to answer them. They were surprised to know that the school uniform used to be grey!

The children took part in traditional English folk dancing on Wednesday and had a wonderful time!

What a busy learning week!

Year 2 had a very busy week, starting with Spirituality Week  focusing on, ‘Where is God’. They took  part in the Prayer Stations in the Hall led by Year 6. “If you are still you will feel God”said Natalie. Tie dying T-Shirts, got the children thinking,”I wonder what will happen to the rubber bands?” “The rubber is waterproof so it will just roll off,” Aisling, “Where the rubber bands are they will make a line in it,” Thomas, “It will make a ring in the middle,” Jamie H.  Our Parents celebration morning was a time to be together to look through learning. The week was rounded off with a truly well deserved ‘Teddy Bear Picnic” Year 2 you should be very proud of your learning achievements this half term!

The Night Shimmy

This week the children read the Anthony Browne book, The Night Shimmy about a boy called Eric who has an imaginary friend. Next, they created their own character and imaginary friend. They wrote noun phrases to describe their character and its movement through the skies. On Monday they will plan their own story with their characters using a story mountain. The children shared lots of ideas as to what might happen to their characters in their own stories and are all looking forward to writing  a story based around the theme of an Anthony Browne book.

I am really looking forward to reading them all!
