Exciting Celebrations!! A huge congratulations to Millie and Leyton who were the only 2 children to have 100% attendance in Y2 for the Autumn Term - Leyton won the raffle for a £30 cinema voucher! Also a massive Well Done to Willow, Hallie, Isaac and Shifra who displayed impeccable behaviour during the Autumn term - Willow won the raffle prize for the behaviour award. Elsie was mega proud to be the first child to complete her Number Passport Bronze Award.

Super Science! We have been exploring and investigating different types of materials and their uses this week. We have experimented which forces can be used to change the shape of various materials and recorded our results.

Tricky maths! We have been learning to divide by 10, 2 and 5 by creating arrays and writing matching number sentences.

Welcome back to Y2 after a lovely long Christmas break - we have lots planned for the Spring term to keep us super busy! 

Y2 end of year assessment information meeting for parents - Thursday 25th January - 3.15pm. Children can attend after-school club during this meeting.

A lovely Harvest celebration - a HUGE well done to each of the Y2 children that took part in our lovely assembly this morning and a massive thank you to each and every family that sent donations in to school, a real rainbow of colour filled our hall today!

The final pieces!

We have had a busy few afternoons this week creating some fantastic art pieces based on The Great Fire of London. We have been mixing paints and experimenting to see what effects we can create using a range of paintbrushes and sponges. We then made silhouette images using card and our clever cutting skills.

Part Two of our Great Fire of London workshop day - A full afternoon of arts and crafts. We made Plague charms out of clay, beautiful smelling pomanders and even had a go at writing in Samuel Pepys secret code using quill pens and ink.
