Christmas 2019

Christmas is such a busy time of year at school and this year has been no exception.

We kicked off our celebrations with our annual FS and KS1 Christmas workshop. It was fabulous to see so many parents and carers coming to join in with us and get into the festive spirit. Thank you to everybody who came.

Next we were treated to a special performance of Aladdin after one of our brilliant Y6 children won a competition. We loved Aladdin!

Then it was time for us to put on a performance of our own in our nativity.

In the midst of all of the performances, we got busy with some Christmas crafts and activities. Our first job was to create a puppet and we used our sewing skills to sew the two pieces of materials together.

We love our finished designs, what do you think?

We set to work to make Christmas cards for our loved ones.

Our final activity was to create a calendar for 2020.

Before we broke up for the holidays, we had time for a Christmas party and disco!

A special visitor even had the time to pop into school and say hello!

We would like to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

See you back at school on Monday 6th January 2020.

Wow! What a busy December we have had at school…

It all started with a trip to the Pantomime to watch Treasure Island. This was a special treat from the charity Variety. We had a party, and we even got to see Father Christmas and got a present from him! Thank you for letting us be part of this special day!

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.

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 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
