Sam’s Safari

On Thursday morning the children were very excited to be able to look at, hold and touch a range of African creatures! (They were braver than me!) My favourite has to be the pygmy hedgehog. The children have all written about what their favourite creature was too and some of their work is displayed in the classroom. The visit from Sam’s Safari contributed not only to their learning about the continent of Africa but also to our science theme on animals and their habitats.

Class 2 can you remember ALL of the creatures we saw on Thursday?

Our first week

What a brilliant first few days we have had in class two. Everyone has excitedly recounted what they did over their summer holidays and has settled down into the new routines of class two. The children have had time to explore their new classroom and its resources. We played lots of games in the hall and learnt to ‘give each other a smile’. They have also discussed their own ideas and opinions for a class charter and have voted for the top five suggestions. We finished the week by having lots of fun playing parachute games. Next week we are going to learn to dance to songs from the Lion King – watch this space!

Class 2 – summing up our year.

It hardly seems like two minutes since we were just starting out in the Autumn term and now we are nearly at the end of the school year and class 2 pupils are starting their transition into Key Stage Two. We have had an action packed year and crammed so many activities and events in and even survived year 2 SATs. We still have a little way to go…. Crest Science Award challenges to complete, our last bit of English work writing our stories based on the work of the author Anthony Browne, the year 6 leavers play to watch and the career dress-up day on Thursday to name but a few so we shall be busy to the end. I am sure we will fit in time during the last week to have a little party and celebrate all of our achievements during the year. Thank-you so much for all of your support this year, there would have been so many things we couldn’t have done without you. Hopefully together this year we have really helped your children to learn, to grow and to achieve.
