On Friday, it was a double whammy for us. Party day and Christmas Jumper Day!
We went into the hall and had the snow machine on. It was so much fun and it felt like it was actually snowing inside the hall. The. We played some party games like pass the parcel, musical statues and we had a dancing competition.
Finally it was back to the classroom to tuck into some delicious party food. We ended our special day with some Christmas karaoke!
This week we had our final session of Tag Rugby with Liam from Progressive Sports.
We teamed up into small groups and had a few games of tag rugby. We loved running over the lines to score a try. This was difficult sometimes as we had to dodge a defender and we even managed to pass the ball to other team members to help them to score a try.
We’d like to say a massive thank you to Liam for teaching us the skills to be able to play tag rugby. We have had an amazing time and cannot wait until we have our next sessions with you.
Over the last few weeks, we have been reading the story of The Little Red Hen by Mary Finch and Kate Slater.
This week, we decided that we wanted to look at instructions and we took the lead from the little red hen and baked some bread. We followed a recipe and finished off the week with some delicious doughy treats! Take a look at what we got up to.

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 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!
