Autumn Term

We have had a great first week back and the children did some superb writing about their summer holidays. I really enjoyed marking their work and hearing about all the wonderful things they did over the summer. They worked really hard on their writing and some children got to share their work with the Head of School. Well done year 2!

 

WOW day

Key Stage 1 enjoyed a busy Superhero WOW Day. We all looked fantastic in our costumes! We made delicious Superhero fuel (smoothies), went on a senses trail, started to fly using a green screen and designed some colourful masks. We all got together to do our Superman song and dance.

 

Road Safety

Year 2 learnt all about how to cross a road safely. They practiced how to use a zebra crossing, a puffin crossing and with a Lollipop lady. They practiced the rules and know to:

-hold hands

-stop

-look

-listen

-think.

Every child knew how dangerous a road can be and to always look left and right.

 

Parliament week

In year 2 we read a story about a teacher who wanted the children to help her paint her new classroom. In the story the children didn’t do a very good job of deciding as a team and the whole classroom ended up brown because they each child picked their own colour and it all got mixed up. We wrote our own ending to the story and decided the fairest way to decide was to have a vote. Each child voted in the ballot box so that everyone got their say and nobody copied their friends. The colour with the most votes would be the majority vote – in year 2 most people wanted red. Even if it wasn’t our colour that got the most votes we had to understanding that it was done fairly. This way of deciding is called democracy and Britain is a democratic country.

We also made some parliament pictures with chalk pastels

Nativity

The children and staff had a wonderful time preparing and performing their Sleepy Shepherd Nativity. The standard of the acting, speaking, singing and  dancing was phenomenal! The enthusiasm of the children was tangible and led to a truly entertaining performance as they told us about the tiny child born for us all one starry night. Well done to all concerned!
