Welcome Back Y2

Welcome back to all of our lovely Y2s starting in Pearl class. We’ve had so much fun this week settling into school, come and meet the class of 2020-2021.

We’ve had lots of fun getting to know each other after such a long time away from school but we are so glad to be getting back to normal.

We been learning all about pirates this week and Miss Varley gave us a special pirate tea party to celebrate our first week back at school.

We cannot wait to see what this year has in store for us but we know we are going to have so much fun! 🤩🤩

Readers – Autumn 2 2019

A brilliant well done to our Green and Gold Readers for this half term. These children have handed in their reading record every week during the half term.

Reading is so important and should be done for at least 10 minutes every day. Any tips or advice, please see Miss Varley.

Remember reading records need to be handed in every Tuesday to Miss Varley.

  • 3-4 reads per week will get you a sticker
  • 5+ reads per week will get you a gold star sticker

Will you be a green or a gold reader for Spring 1 2020?

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!
