We all really enjoyed a lovely treat for our incredibly hard work this half-term. Reading under a tree with ice-cream...what could be better?! Well done Year 2 for your fantastic perseverance and attitude to learning. We hope you all have a wonderful half term holiday!
Today, we shared our learning with Year 1 and we enjoyed telling them all about our knowledge of India. We performed a Bhangra dance, tasted the Indian food we prepared (naan bread and coconut laddoos) as well as sharing our artwork and writing. It was a lovely afternoon, thank you Year 1 for coming to see our Bazaar well done to Year 2 for being so responsible when sharing your amazing work.
Today our challenge was to build boats for the River Ganges using tin foil, and of course they had to float! We then tested how many cubes, teddies and animals the boats could hold before they sank! Excellent research and observation skills Year 2!

World Book Day 2017


We had a visit from a mysterious suspect who sneakily trashed our classrooms during assembly! They made a huge mess and left lots of clues for us to solve. We became the 'World Book Day Crime Team' and wrote crime scene reports to help the Superior Detectives solve the crime.


After lunch, PCSO Davies came to school to tell us that our reports about all the clues had helped to solve the crime! The suspect was......George the Giant (The Smartest Giant in Town)! 


Well done everybody for your fantastic writing and AMAZING world book day costumes! 

Our wonderful visit from Partake Theatre Company who told us the story of The Great Fire of London!
