Send My Friend to School 2019

  • Did you know that not everyone in the world is lucky enough to be able to go to school?
  • Did you know that education is a universal human right for everyone?
  • Did you know that over 262 million children across the world are not currently 8m school?
  • The Global Campaign for Education (GCE) is a global organisation working to ensure quality education for all children with members in over 90 countries.
  • Here in the UK, thousands of schools and young people take part in the Send My friend campaign , teaching young people the importance of using their voices with others across the globe to create positive change.

In Y2, we looked at what our rights were as citizens of the UK and we looked how to we could try and ensure that other children across the world had chance to be as lucky as we are.

  • We have the right to be educated
  • We have the right to play and relax
  • We have the right to play with other children
  • We have the right to share our views and say what we think
  • We have the right to a name
  • We have the right to be warm
  • We have the right to be safe and healthy, with quality healthcare, nutritious food and clean drinking water
  • We have the right to believe what I chose and to practise my religion

Together, we wrote a song and learnt how to sing it to a song we already knew.

Here is a clip of us singing our finished song. We are sorry there are no pictures but please listen to the words we are singing.

Spring 2019 – 100% Attendance

As we have had such a busy half term, we forgot to post about our 100% Attendance Superstars for Spring term. These children didn’t miss a single day of school in the Spring term and made every minute count when they were in school to help them with their learning.

Will you get 100% Attendance for the Summer term and get a special invitation to the Summer 100% Attendance Disco?

Y2 Sports Day 2019

We have been really lucky to attend the Y2 Sports Day at the English Institute of Sport. We took part in lots of different activities to test our throwing and catching skills as well as looking at seeing how quick we could run, jog and walk. Everybody had lots of fun… we can’t wait for next year’s sports day!

Thank you to our parents and carers who came along with on the day. Your help means so much to the children and help us continue to attend these events.

Here are just some of the activities that we took part in.

Safety Week 2019

In Spring 1, our whole school theme was Safety. You might remember that we visited Birley Moor Fire Station earlier this month and learnt about how to be safe if there was ever a fire. Click here to see our previous post.

That wasn’t the only thing we completed in school though linked to safety. What other types of safety can you think of?

In Pearl Class, we looked at how to stay safe when we cross the road.

In Ruby class, we looked at how to stay safe at home or at school.

On Tuesday 5th February, it was Safer Internet Day. In Literacy, we looked at the story MonkeyCow by Stuart Spendlow and Amy Bradley.

You might remember reading the prequel story PenguinPig when you were in FS2.

These books help us and remind us of the important messages to stay safe when we use the internet.

We must never:

  • Speak to strangers online
  • Tell a stranger who we are, where we live or where we go to school
  • Give out any telephone numbers, email addresses or passwords

If any of these things happen to us, then we must:

  • Tell a parent or teacher straight away

We used PurpleMash to create our own set of rules for staying safe when we are online.
