Welcome back Y2P!

This morning we discussed what the children got up to during the holidays. Its fair to say they have all been visited by Santa and had a fantastic time! The children had a go at improving a sentence and making it their own. They worked hard and well in pairs to produce good examples of writing. We also visited the start of our art (sketching) and using light and firm strokes and the differences.

Christmas Party and Hand Puppets

This week the children have been finishing off their hand puppets and also enjoyed a Christmas party for their efforts this term and to celebrate this wonderful time of year! It was fantastic fun! However that much food was brought in it will take us the rest of term to get through it! Many thanks to everyone who brought in party food and clothes!

Pantomime Trip

The children watched Jack and the Beanstalk at the Carriageworks Theatre. It was an amazing show and a first trip to the theatre for many of our children. They soon got into it and booed and cheered loudly!

Around the World Focus Week

The children have been round the world this week, visiting different teachers and learning about different countries. In Jamaica, they played reggae. In Kenya, they made art. In Japan they made sushi and in India they learned a traditional dance. Finally, they scared the Year 6 teachers with terrifying performance of the Haka. What an amazing week it was!

Space Focus Week

What a great start to our focus week! This morning NASA informed us a new solar system had been discovered and each class had to investigate a different planet. We had a special box with some samples from a planet. One bag had green liquid in it and one bag had white sand, different coloured rocks and blue grass! We drew and described what we thought another planet would look like and what we would find there. We learnt how to mix different shades of green and blue to paint pictures of our planet.

Puppet Shows

As part of their story writing, children performed puppet shows of their stories first. This helped them become familiar with what they would write about it - as well as entertain each other!
