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!

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.
