Our Harvest Assembly

On Friday 16th October 2K performed their class assembly.  The theme was 'harvest' and the children took great delight in sharing their thoughts about how they are thankful for all the lovely things that are in the world.  They acted out the story of the 'Little Red Hen', reinforcing the importance of sharing.  They also performed a fantastic dance and the assembly finished with a song.

Children in Need

The school held a fund raising event for Children in Need.  Everybody came to school in non-uniform or fancy dress.  Teachers looked very strange dressed in clothes from the era they were born in.  In 2k the children enjoyed learning about the charity of Children in Need and how it helps others.  The children enjoyed  writing 'Pudsey' poems and designing costumes for 'Pudsey'.  Later the children had the opportunity of having spots painted on their faces.

The children thoroughly enjoyed all the different activities that the P.E. staff had organised in the hall.  In the afternoon the teachers took 2K outside to practise running.  The children were very energetic and staff were worn out long before the children.  Back in the class there was no chance of a rest as the children were keen to show off their gymnastic skills they had been learning in P.E.

Our trip to the Botanical Gardens

On Friday the 6th of May Year 2 went on a trip to the Botanical Gardens.  It was a warm, sunny day so we were very lucky. The children were very excited as they were keen to learn lots of facts about their topic on Rainforests.  During the visit the children participated in a teaching session about the rainforest delivered by a lovely gentleman called James from the Botanical Gardens. Then they visited the Sub Tropical house and identified different types of plants. Afterwards the children were able to explore the tranquil surroundings of the gardens looking at all the wonderful floral displays.  They were delighted to be able to see a peacock, who was very keen to show off her beautiful, colourful feathers, as she proudly strutted around.  All the children had a fantastic time and to end the visit the children were allowed to have time to play in the recreation area.

Celebrating Eid-al-Fitr

To celebrate Eid the children had a delicious lunch on beautifully decorated tables.  During the afternoon 2K had a fantastic party with games, dancing and lots of singing.
