Mother’s Day 2018

On Friday 9th March, FS and KS1 held a special assembly for our mummies, nannans, grandmas, aunties and sisters to show them just how special they are to us!


Every class sing a song and then our final song, we sang altogether. At the end of all of our singing, we got to go and see our adults to go and give them a special treat!


Thank you for all that you do for us! We love you all very much!

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.

Green for Grenfell

Today, we were invited to wear the colour green to support the people suffering or were involved in the Grenfell fire in London. By wearing green, we show solidarity and support for the people who died, were injured or lost everything in this tragic event.

A huge thank you to all of our parents and carers for sending donations in for this cause. We have raised over £200. This money will go towards helping those that have been affected in London.
