Year 2 have worked really hard this week!
We are getting to grips with multiplication: we have been making equal groups with practical resources, have looked at the relationship between repeated addition and multiplication and have now moved on to looking at arrays.
In English, we have started work on our new text: The Owl Who Was Afriad Of The Dark. We wrote some wonderful character descriptions of Plop the owl and can’t wait to write our own versions of the story.
In Science, we have been investigating the importance of washing our hands. We have set up an experiment to see what happens to different slices of bread depending if they’ve been touched by washed or unwashed hands. Ask us what we have predicted will happen!
All children across the whole school received their very own pedometers today in a bid to get more active!
Year 2 enjoyed counting their steps and many of us smashed our 2000 step target! Keep it up!
Year 2 have launched their new topic for the spring term: EXPLORERS!
We made our very own passports so we can travel and explore the world and discover new and exciting places – like Christopher Columbus!
Year 4 led an Advent prayer service this week for the children in Year 2. The children thought about all of the things that bring joy to their lives and offered these up in prayer. Well done to both classes who were beautifully reverent during the afternoon service.
On Friday, Year 2 will be watching ‘The Greatest Showman’ film. This film is rated as a PG. If you would prefer your child not to watch this film, please let us know so alternative arrangements can be made for them. Thank you.
On Friday, children in Years 1 and 2 have been invited to come to school in their pyjamas as a treat for the final day! We will watch a film and have popcorn and hot chocolate to celebrate the long-awaited end of term!
Miss Frearson and Miss Corkerry have been sent Santa Cams from the North Pole so that Santa can keep his eye on all the Key Stage One children during the final days of school! We are trying to be on our best behavior to make sure we stay on his nice list!
Well done to all children who participated in the Christmas Nativity. You told this important story in such a special and memorable way and reminded us what the real meaning of Christmas is!
The nativity is fast approaching!
Remember to come along to see our performance next week:
Tuesday 11th December @ 1:15pm

Please note: KS1 will be walking to the Hearsall Baptist Church on Wednesday after the performance at school to perform to the Luncheon Club there. They will be back in time for lunch as normal.
