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.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

This week, we have been so busy getting ready for Christmas we have been in overdrive.

On Monday, we had our Christmas Party and we even had a special visitor. We danced, played some party games and then went back to the classroom for some party food.

Santa brought us a class game of Jenga to play and a new story book to add to our book collection. The book is called Superworm and it is by one of our favourite authors, Julia Donaldson. Thank you Santa!

We have made Christmas cards to send to someone special in our families.

We loved making our Christmas calendars with the penguins on. First we had to paint a blue background. Next we had to use a large potato dipped in black paint for the body and then we had to let it dry. If we didn’t, the colours would run into each other. Then we used a smaller potato for the white part of the penguin’s body and used a paintbrush to add on details like eyes, wings, beak and feet. Once everything has dried, we used some silver glittery finger paint to make it look like the penguins were gliding on the smooth, sparkling ice.

We made some snowman puppets as well and had a chance to practise our sewing skills. We are sure that you will agree that our snowmen puppets look brill!

Pearl class would like to wish all of their friends and followers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We will see you all again soon in the New Year! Back to School – Tues 3rd Jan 2017

Christmas Nativity

Today was the day! Today was the day we performed our Y2 Christmas Nativity for all of our mums, dads, grandparents and other family members. We have been practising our songs, actions and our lines to make that today was perfect. Our favourite part was when we got to put our costumes on.


We hope that our grown ups enjoyed watching our nativity. We loved being able to perform it. Thank you for coming to watch us!

Here are some of the comments that our grown ups left:

  • Well done Y2 – a well performed nativity.
  • It was wonderful.
  • It was lovely – I am very proud of your school.
  • We really enjoyed it so much – well done to all! 🙂
  • Brill – fantastic as always.
  • It was really good – all of the kids got their lines correct. It was excellent.
  • I could watch this again and again if I had the chance! 10/10!
  • A really lovely traditional nativity.k

Christmas Singing

Every year at school, we invite some people from our local community to our school to enjoy a Christmas lunch with us.

This year, we had the very special honour of singing for our visitors. We have been practising our songs for our Christmas Nativity and our visitors really enjoyed listening to the songs that we sang.

We hope that they enjoyed the performance, because we really enjoyed singing for an audience.

FS and KS1 Christmas Workshop

Christmas is officially here!

This morning, we held our annual FS and KS1 Christmas Workshop across the classrooms.

As you can see, everyone has had a marvellous time.

We had over 50 parents and carers attend today so we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone for coming to make this such a successful event. We hope to see you next year.

We hope you are well and truly in the Christmas spirit!

Variety Christmas Pantomime

  
Today we have had an amazing time at Sheffield City Hall at the Christmas Pantomime and Party. We were invited by the charity Variety and we had been looking forward to it all week. 

  
We left school and caught the tram to City Hall. We love catching the tram on our trips as it gives us chance to see parts of Sheffield that we wouldn’t normally see. On the way we saw Ponds Forge (the swimming pool), lots of shops and the Cathedral. Our final stop was City Hall – We had arrived.

The pantomime was Dick Whittington and we thought it was brill. We got to dance, sing along  and help the characters if they got stuck. One of our favourite parts was shouting, ‘He’s behind you!’
  
   
Then it was lunch time. We had pizza, chicken nuggets and chips. What a delicious treat!  

In the afternoons, it was time for the party. Even Miss Varley got up on the stage to dance and show us some dance moves. A special visitor arrived in the middle of our dancing… It was SANTA!

  
Finally the party finished, we got our coats on and got the tram back to school. Every child was given a present from Santa and we loved them.

Thank you so much Variety for letting us come. It was the best trip ever!
