Happy New Year!!

Hopefully you have all had an enjoyable Christmas break and your children are rested and prepared for a busy term. We have a lot of learning to pack in to five short weeks including a visit from 'History off the Page' towards the end of January. A letter will be sent out to you shortly with more information about this.

Next week, please look out for a note in your child's reading record to inform you of the day that their reading books will be changed. You may find that it is the same but I have mixed up the guided reading groups for this term to give the class the opportunity to work with different children.

Please can I remind everyone about sending in water bottles for your children to drink from during the school day. Please could you also check that your child's school uniform is clearly labelled with their name. We accumulated an incredible amount of lost property towards the end of last term and as I am sure you can appreciate, it is very difficult to return lost items with no name. 

This term, because the weather is so unpredictable, I have suggested to the class that they bring in wellies (or something similar) to wear during break times and at lunch. It is very muddy and wet out in the KS1 play area and we are trying to reduce the amount of mud walked in to the school building. Please make sure if you do send in footwear, that they are in a clearly labelled bag.

Have a lovely weekend!

Merry Christmas!!!

We have had a wonderful term in Year 2, culminating in a fantastic Nativity. Your children have worked incredibly hard and I have enjoyed getting to know them all. They are definitely in need of a well-earned rest!

Thank you for all your support and for the extremely generous Christmas gifts. I, along with the rest of the Year 2 team, feel thoroughly spoilt so thank you!

I hope all of your holidays are filled with magic and joy and the children return happy and healthy in January (hopefully minus the coughs!)

Here are few photos from our last couple of weeks.

Merry Christmas.

We have had a wonderful half term in year 2 and learned lots already!

We have really enjoyed our 'Art in Nature' topic learning about the artist Andy Goldsworthy and creating interesting art sculptures and pictures using natural materials. Today was our last art lesson of the topic and we got VERY messy!!!

We experimented with using mud to create paintings and had lots of fun digging in the forest and getting dirty. BE WARNED: the following photographs contain some very messy children!!!
