January 2020 - Biscuit Bear

 We have enjoyed reading the story of 'Biscuit Bear' by Mini Grey.  To inspire us with our work and for our DT project, we have designed and made our own Biscuit Bears.  This was a lot of fun.

January 2020 - Conrad Burdekin

 We enjoyed a visit from the poet, Conrad Burdekin.  We worked with Conrad to write our own class poem, this was lots of fun!

December 2019 - Festive fun!

 We have had lots of fun in the last few weeks of term.  We have made Christmas lanterns using instructions from Santa.  We have also made cards and calendars and had lots of fun at our party!


11th November 2019 - Remembrance Day

To support our history work on Remembrance Day, we went for a walk to Thornley Park to have a look at the cenotaph.  Later in the week, we learned and performed some Remembrance Day poems.  We also used recycled egg boxes to make our own poppy wreaths for the classroom door.

October 2019 - Rangoli patterns

To celebrate Diwali, Year 2 used chalk to draw Rangoli patterns on the front playground.  This was a lot of fun!

October 2019 - place value

 We have been learning about place value by using lots of different maths equipment.

September 2019 - Maths Buddies

 Year 2 and Year 6 have enjoyed being maths buddies as a continuation from reading buddies last year.  In our session, we played a game called 'Order Order' where the children rolled dice and raced to get their numbers in order.  This was a lot of fun!
