Christmas Craft Open Morning Wednesday 30th November

Today our parents joined us to help start the Advent and Christmas festivities by making and creating wonderful decorations with which we will decorate our classroom. We made christmas wreaths and hand reindeer decorations. have a look at our pictures. Later in the day we made friendship chains to hang from our ceiling to remind us of how we need to be strong and good friends this Advent to prepare for Jesus

Wednesday 2nd November - No Pens Wednesday


Today was no pens Wednesday. We spent the whole day working without pens. The idea was to encourage us to develop our speaking and listening skills.

During the day, we were given objects and asked to discuss them. We describe them to our partner and then decided what memory they held for the owner.

In Maths, we created human pictograms to show what our favourite fruit was and to work out what the most common eye colour in Year 2 was.

Friday 21st October - Open Morning for Multi-Faith Week


Today was our open morning with our parents. The theme was Buddhism which ended our week long celebration of Multi-Faith week. We shared what we had been taught with our parents and worked with them to make Lotus Flower Lanterns. We even tested their knowledge with a quizz.


Later in the morning, Mrs Duncan, who is a practising Buddhist came in to tell us all about what it is like to live her life following the Buddhist faith. It was very interesting.

Thursday 6th October

Today we welcomed the Mighty Zulu Nation to school. It was very exciting. They taught us how to dance traditional Zulu dances as well as entertained us with their singing and jokes. Later in the afternoon, our class and Year 3 had a dance workshop where we were taught how to do a traditional dance. Have a look at the photos below. You might spot some teachers too!

Year 2 Elections

On Thursday 29th September we held an election for our representatives for the school council. We learned all about democracy and elections as well as how people go to polling stations to cast their ballot. Our classroom was transformed into a polling station and we cast our own votes for our class councillors after the week long election campaign.

French Day

We had great fun celebrating our Fête Française on Friday 23rd September. Our theme this year was Paris. We explored what Paris was like and what the streets look like. We also learned the names of some of the shops in French.
