Project Homework – Summer 1 2018

At Prince Edward, we have changed the way that we complete homework.

This half term we have been learning all about Florence Nightingale and homework this half term was to create something that reflected the learning that the children had taken part in.

Here are some of Pearl class’ entries…

What a fantastic effort – you really were able to bring your learning to life.

We are looking forward to seeing what next half term brings…

Sports Relief 2018

In addition to our trip to the English Institute of Sport for the Y2 Sports Day, it was also Sports Relief Week so this is how we celebrated as a school.

We had a non-uniform day where we could wear our own sports clothes to help raise some money.

In the afternoon, we had a staff vs children netball match. We sat on the grass on the outside of the MUGA pitch to cheer everyone on.

We had a marvellous time and raised £180 for Sports Relief. Thank you to all of our parents and carers for helping us to raise this money to help others less fortunate than ourselves.

Excellent Behaviour

On our way back from our trip to the English Institute of Sport, the tram was very busy, crowded and full of passengers.

The following day, we received this email and felt very proud of ourselves.

————————————————————————————————————–

Good Afternoon,

I have just had the privilege of meeting some of your students from Year 2 and your teachers/helpers.

The children were impeccably behaved and had good manners, followed instructions, and listened well. They also kept noise to a minimum.

I have twin babies and the children were great at keeping a distance, not touching.

I spoke with a little girl called ‘Summer’. If she is a reflection of the students at your school, you should be very very proud.

I just wanted to say compared with another school I had the unfortunate pleasure of meeting on the way to Meadowhall… your children were amazing.

My little girl attends Sacred Heart Catholic School and I’d like to think they behave like your children.

With kindest regards
Mrs Laura Holmes

We are role models and ambassadors of our school when we attend trips out of school and we strive to make sure that our behaviour matches that of our behaviour in school. Thank you for your email, it was fabulous to hear from you!

Pearl class would like to wish everyone a very happy Mother’s Day today! We hope that you are being spoilt and are having a truly relaxing day!

Christmas 2017

We have had such a busy time at school getting ready for Christmas. Take a look below to find out just what we got up to in December…

We kicked off our festive celebrations with a trip to City Hall after we were invited to the watch the Variety pantomime Aladdin and Christmas Party. We had such an amazing time, danced our socks off and even Santa popped in to say hello!

Thank you for the invite Variety.

Our grown ups were invited to come and spend the morning with us making some Christmas crafts. We really love it when our grown ups come into school and spend some time with us in the classroom. Thank you!

After weeks of practice, it was time for our Y2 Nativity Performance. We worked hard to learn the songs, rehearsed our lines and had a brilliant time putting on the nativity for our grown ups.

Here are just a few comments about what our grown ups thought…

In the last week before we broke up, it was Christmas Party and Disco afternoon. We had a wonderful time playing games, eating delicious party food and being with our friends.

On the last day of term, Santa took time out of his really busy schedule and paid us a visit! He left us a present which we can’t wait to use in the New Year.

Finally, we were very busy in the run up to Christmas, creating Christmas cards, using printing techniques to making calendars and sewing some snowmen puppets.

We have had a brilliant Autumn term in Y2 and we can’t wait to see what we will be learning about in the Spring.

We hope that you have all had a very merry Christmas and we wish you a Happy New Year. See you all on Monday 8th January 2018.
