Drama workshop

The children had a visit from a drama company where they gave them a fun drama lesson. They were pretending to be animals in Africa as well as changing roles to be the explorers hunting the animals. The children all had so much fun.

Cian also bought in his butterflies from home. We then released some of them that were fully formed into our secret garden.

The children have been solving subtraction problems by drawing number lines as well as finishing their letters to year 1 about how they can succeed in year 2 when they move up in September.

Hope you have a lovely week.

Staunton Trip!

What a fabulous day we all had at Staunton today. The children were able to extend their learning about animal habitats and go on a bug hunt in the woods. They had a great time holding the large African snail and touching the millipede.

The children also enjoyed walking around the farm and exploring the animals.

Many thanks to all the parents that helped out today. Our trips could not take place without you so thank you!

Have a wonderful weekend.

3D shapes

The children this week have been learning about the properties of 3D shapes.

They have enjoyed making their own shapes from nets and describing how they know what 3D shape it is.

The children in English have been writing their own story based on Tin Forest. We are excited to get them published and displayed in our classrooms.

Year 2 have their liturgy on Tuesday 3rd July at 10.20am in the hall. It would be lovely to see as many families come and join us for our last liturgy of the year.

Have a wonderful weekend.

2A Music Concert!

Many thanks to everyone that was able to come and support the children in their music concert. They had a wonderful time performing all the songs they had learnt this term.

Here are a few photos of the performance.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

The children have been learning the song ‘Summer Holiday’ by Cliff Richard for them to sing at the school summer fayre at the end of June. Please could you encourage your children to learn the song for home learning.

Welcome back!

Hope you all had a wonderful half term break. The children have settled back into school well and have been working hard in all areas.

In Maths the children have been practising their times tables. Please encourage the children to go on Sum Dog and take part in the challenge for the national competition.

In English the children have started reading the Tin Forest and looking at the language choices within the story.

In Science the children have been looking at things that are alive, things that have never been alive and things that are dead. The children have enjoyed discussing reasons for their choices when grouping.

Our Learning

This week we have been having a go at estimating answers to addition problems by rounding numbers up or down to the nearest 10. Once the children got the hang of this new skill, they began to really enjoy it!

In RE the children retold the story of Pentecost by acting it out in small groups.

The children have finally published their letters in English to the headteachers in the local area informing them how to stay safe in the sun. Once again the children have produced beautiful writing.

Hope you all have a wonderful half term break.

A lovely sunny week of learning!

The children have enjoyed writing their facts for their sun safety unit in English and giving reasons why we must keep ourselves safe.

We have also worked hard in maths with problem solving involving addition and subtraction.

In RE we had our lesson outsideĀ  thinking about how we are followers of Jesus and what we do in our lives to show this to others.

Just a reminder- please could we have reply slips for our trip which is happening on Thursday 28th June 2018. Parent helpers are desperately needed for our trip to go ahead so we would be very grateful to anyone who can offer their help. Thank you!

Please encourage your children to log into Sum dog as there is a maths challenge for them to take part in.

Have a lovely weekend.
