Summer 2 Week 7

Summer fun day was a fantastic way to come together as a class, celebrate and say farewell to Mia. We had a great time together and wish Mia and her family lots of love and success for the future. Thank you to all the parent helpers, it was a wonderful day.

Please return your child’s reading book and record next week Wednesday. Also please bring a plastic bag to school for books and remember that school finishes Friday 19th at 1pm.

Please also take this time to research an athlete of your choice who is going to the Paris Olympics. Find out where they are from, what their sport is, if they have won any medals before, what it takes to be an Olympic athlete and any other interesting facts about them. We will be writing about this in class next week.

See you all on Friday

Miss Pringle

Summer 2 Week 4

In English, we have continued our Great Fire of London writing. This week, we have used our senses to describe what Pudding Lane, would have looked, smelt and sounded like. Next week, we will use this writing to help us ‘interview’ each other. We have used our History, Design and Art skills to create Tudor houses from Pudding lane – I’m sure you’ll agree, they are very impressive!

In Maths we have used dienes to help us add two and three digit numbers.

Well done Ella, Lorena, Josie and Emily for planning and leading such a reflective collective worship.

I look forward to meeting with you next week.

Summer 2 Week 2

We celebrated Healthy Eating Week in Year 2, by Staying Hydrated, getting our 5-a-day, and understanding the importance of exercise on our bodies. We also prepared and enjoyed fruit kebabs and enjoyed infusing our water bottles with segments of lemon, lime and mint leaves.

Well done to Daniella, Isabelle, Andriana and Sophia, for leading a very thoughtful and reflective collective worship about love.

We also welcomed Littlebridge to our class this week. We have loved getting to know her.

Summer 2, Week 1

The children thoroughly enjoyed their class trip to Knebworth House on Tuesday. It was a lot of fun but also provided an opportunity for them to discover how plants grow in the context of a beautiful, established, working garden. They took part in a plants workshop and explored the formal and walled kitchen gardens, before enjoying a visit to the dinosaur trail and the adventure playground. Thank you Ms Coutinho, Mrs Sheahan and Miss Lawlor for support the class.

In Maths, the children have been exploring lines of symmetry. They’ve enjoyed using mirrors to find symmetrical and asymmetrical shapes.

The class have also been busy preparing for Sports Day next week and have enjoyed running the daily mile together at lunch time.

Our new History Topic is The Great Fire of London. This week, we have investigated where, how and why it started.

In RE we have learnt about different types of prayer. This helped us prepare for the Blessed Sacrament on Friday.

Have a restful weekend

  5. How and why we should reduce food waste.

Summer 1 Week 6

We have been learning how to serve in tennis this week, and have also been preparing for Sports Day by practising throwing the shot put, speed bounce and standing long jump.

This week in RE, we thought about people in our school community who are Sacramental. We asked Mrs Lopez about her faith and how shows love and care for others. Thank you for helping us with our learning and inspiring us to following Jesus’ teachings Mrs Lopez.

We have also enjoyed Spirituality week, where we ‘prayed in colour’, wrote prayers for the children in Year 4 and went on a biodiversity walk. Thank you to Miss Donatantonio and the Year 6 children, who planned and led the Prayer Stations in the hall on Thursday.

This week Ava, Abigail, Ayden and Prisha, lead collective worship about friendship and Noah, Yuvan, Kuzey and Rocco lead one about kindness. Well done.

Thank you for your generous donations to the International Pentecost Celebration, on Wednesday. It was wonderful to celebrate our rich and diverse community together.

We’ve been exploring the properties of different 2D and 3D shapes in Maths.

We have been looking closely at Vincent van Gogh’s style of painting, and have created our own Sunflower paintings.

Well done to those who ran in the Mini Marathon today.

Have a restful half term

Miss Pringle

Summer 1 Week 5

This week in Art, we have been recreating Vincent van Goghs Sunflower and starry night paintings. We focused on creating movement with paints and pastels.

Our SPaG focus has been on contractions and verbs, which we have used in our writing about Rapunzel.

In Maths we have been learning about number families.

Our RE focus has been Pentecost, we have been learning about how St Paul and St Peter were Pentecostal people. We have also considered  how spreading the word of God started with Jesus, then the disciples and is now down to us today.

This week Brooke, Amelie, Aurora and Mia lead a collective worship about families, which they planned and resourced themselves. It was beautifully delivered and enjoyed by the whole class. All of the children will have an opportunity to to do this during the summer term.

Well done to all the children that took part in the music concert this afternoon, you were all fantastic!

Summer 1 Week 4

Thankfully the sun came out on Tuesday, meaning we were all able to enjoy the May Procession together. The class sang beautifully and were reverent, when placing their flowers around Mary. Thank you for your generous flower donations – the class gardens are already looking more colourful.

On Thursday the class attended Mass at OLASV Church to celebrate the Feast of the Ascension.

Over the past three weeks, the year 2 gardening club have been busy sowing basil and sunflowers. All of which have germinated. They have also painted mini beast pebbles to place among the flowerbeds, weeded the gardens and planted spring flowers outside the KS1 classrooms and music pavilion. It has been a pleasure to see how much the children enjoy caring for the plants and wildlife.

Hopefully, you have also received the letter explaining the details of our class trip on Tuesday 4th June 2024. Please ensure you give consent on Schoolcomms and mark food options for the day.

Please remember to pack water bottles and hats next week.
