Gymnastics – Autumn 2 2019

During Autumn 2, we looked at gymnastics in PE.

First we looked at the different shapes you could make in gymnastics.

We learnt that you could use these shapes when you perform different movements in PE. We also learnt how to make the star, dish, arch and straight shapes.

We used the apparatus to learn how to jump correctly.

  • Feet slightly apart
  • Knees slightly bent
  • Look where you want to jump
  • Land on two feet
  • Stand up

Can you guess which shapes we were making in the air?

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.

Y2 at the Pantomime

Y2 were so lucky and got the opportunity to visit the pantomime down at City Hall. We jumped on the tram and were so excited when we arrived.

The pantomime was Beauty and the Beast and there were lots of songs we could join in with. There was even a naughty cat and rabbit that made an appearance on the stage and we had to shout ‘They’re behind you!!’ to help the characters to know where they were.

After the pantomime, it was time for lunch and then it was party time. Santa even made a special appearance, taking the time out of his busy schedule. We were given a huge sack of presents that we could take back to school and share between each other.

We would like to say a big Prince Edward thank you to the charity Variety who gave us the amazing opportunity to be able to let us attend. We had the most fantastic time and really enjoyed ourselves. THANK YOU!

TASC: Lifecycle of a Butterfly

In science, we have been busy learning about lifecycles and we enjoyed it so much that Miss Varley set us a task and we used TASC to help us to do this.

Task: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding about the life cycle of a butterfly.

Here is what we did:

We were so proud of each other for the work that we had completed that we invited Onyx class to come and have a look as we know that they have been learning about life cycles as well.

We even displayed our work in the classroom for our adults to see in a morning when they came into the classroom.
