16/6/17

We have had an incredibly exciting week in class. You may remember several months ago we celebrated our Roald Dahl Day and as part of our activities we released the "Twits" tied to lots of colourful balloons. We attached a message with our contact details on them and what we had been learning about in the hope that we would hear back from someone when they eventually landed. Sadly, the days turned to weeks of not hearing anything and we gave up hope of anyone ever finding them. UNTIL.....

A ping in my email box on Wednesday lunchtime announced the following news....


Dear Miss Lawrance,
Dear year 2,

We found your message about the Twits yesterday. It was lying on a beach near the village Henne Strand in Denmark. The dog of our uncle named Snow took care of it, so that we could take a picture.

It seems as if your balloons had taken a North-eastern direction and landed somewhere in the northern sea from where they swam a little to the coast of Denmark.

We are here on vacations and live in Germany. We added some pictures. You can see us, Sinja 13 years old, Mila 11 years old and Mijo 7 years old and also a year 2 pupil in a German primary school.

Our parents helped us a little with this email. But maybe you want to write back - we are looking forward to hearing from you.

All the best
Mila, Sinja & Mijo




Year 2 were delighted to receive this email along with the following photographs...







We will be replying this week and will hopefully keep in contact with our new German friends!

We have had an incredibly busy half-term and the children have worked extremely hard. I am so proud of their attitude, enthusiasm and determination over the last couple weeks and am delighted with how well they have done in their quizzes!

On Wednesday, we had lots of fun getting messy in Art and ended up getting paint in some very unusual places! We have created some stunning pictures which we will hopefully finish tomorrow. Here are some pictures of our afternoon...



















This afternoon, we have had a little celebration as a treat for all our hard work and played lots of fun games out in the sunshine. We even had ice lollies to cool us down in this hot weather!!




I hope you all have a wonderful half-term break and that the children have a good rest to recharge their batteries!!

We are into the last week of the half-term now and will be doing lots of art work during the latter part of the week. If your child has not brought in messy clothes, could they please do so by Wednesday as we will need them in the afternoon.

The whole class have worked extremely hard over the last couple of weeks and are looking forward to a well-deserved rest over the half-term holiday. Mrs Stocks has already set their science homework to complete over half-term, to build a model greenhouse. I would like the class to continue reading lots and make sure they have an enjoyable break, returning refreshed and energised for the last half-term.

Welcome back...

Welcome to the Summer term!

 Hopefully you have had relaxing Easter breaks and your children are ready for lots of learning.

Our topic throughout the Summer is all about the seaside. We will be learning about the geography of the beach and the type of creatures that we might find there. We will also be comparing seaside holidays today with holidays in the past.

On your child's homework sheet, hopefully you will have seen a request for photographs. We are looking for photos from when you yourselves were children and holidayed at the seaside. We are also hoping for some photos from grandparents who might have visited the seaside when they were younger. We will make sure that any photographs are returned at the end of the topic. please ensure that any photos that your child brings in are clearly labelled on the back.

The homework this week is some maths games on Abacus. I have allocated several games for your child to play and they can complete these over the coming weeks. Some of children may have come home with a new password on the back of their homework slip, if they thought that they didn't have their password at home. If anyone else struggles to log in to their account over the weekend, please let me know on Monday and I will allocate a new password.

Have a lovely weekend!

Roald Dahl Day

We had an amazing day  celebrating Roald Dahl Day. We dressed in wonderful costumes and joined in lots of unusual activities!

Here are some photos of our day...
