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!


Micro habitats

In science the children explored micro habitats. They looked in various places and found some surprises along the way!

Last week of term

Year 2 had a busy week. First they learnt all about the events of Holy Week through writing and role play. On Wednesday past pupils joined us for a question and answer session. Heston’s Dad popped into Year 2 and the children asked him lots of interesting questions such as “What was your Epiphany moment when you were at Pope Paul?” In maths the children have been learning how to make 3d shapes out of straws and clay and find other ways to make shapes.

We wish you a joyful Easter!

Jack Trelawny book signing

The author Jack Trelawny visited the children today. They asked Jack what inspires him to read books.
His answered.. pictures and researching objects or animals. He said that this provides him with all the creative ideas he needs to write a good story. Year 2 children had many other interesting questions to ask him. Emilia and Rory answered Jack’s questions correctly thus winning a book prize each! Those who purchased a book were lucky enough to have their book signed. After the talk the children were buzzing with ideas about what to use in their next story writing opportunity.

They also watched the Irish Dancing and listened to the choir who aptly sang the traditional Irish song ‘Oh Danny boy’ Once in class the parents and children took part in a ‘create a flower’ competition. There was so many creative ideas and the competition was fierce!

The empty bottle?

The empty bottle? Today the children investigated whether they could blow a piece of paper inside a bottle. After lots of attempts they found it near on impossible! ” Some force is inside the bottle” said Heather “making it hard to push the paper in”. The adults made a hole at the end of the bottle and this time the paper went in! “The air escaped from the hole” said Thomas. IMG_7018 IMG_7017 IMG_7016 IMG_7015 IMG_7011 IMG_7013


The Night Owl Team

Seven Owls called Whisper, Scott, Little Owl, Tango, Dotty, Murphy and Oscar visited the children today. They learn’t lots of interesting facts about Owls and even got the opportunity to hold one! The children were fascinated that the Owls could turn their whole heads around but surprised to know that they couldn’t move their eyes from side to side or up or down!
