Year 2 Den Building Fun!

Year 2 had a great morning today den building. Both class 5 and 6 worked together to show how sharing ideas and  team work can help you to achieve an amazing outcome! As you can see, from the great photographs, all children had a fabulous time.

 

Welcome Back Year 2!

What an exciting first day it has been in year two for both children and teachers.  All children have had a great first day back and from the smiles on their faces you could tell  that they were all thrilled to be back at school playing and interacting with their friends.

The children were also very delighted with the new play equipment and refurbished fire pit.

Year 2 become Kings and Queens

To coincide with their history topic, Castles, Kings and Queens, year 2 planned and participated in a very Royal Kings and Queens dressing up day. On this day, all of the children from class 5 and 6 arrived at school wearing capes, dresses, crowns and robes. During the afternoon the children sang Tudor songs, performed a Tudor dance and held a special banquet. A great day was had by all.

Year 4 embrace the return back to school!


Today, Class 9 took their Maths lesson outside and, it has to be said, they have embraced the outdoors despite the change of weather!

The lesson today was a recap of what they have been learning about this term – Place value. The students showed great teamwork and were able to confidently partition 4 digit numbers, as well as round their chosen number to the nearest 10, 100 and 1,000.

In addition, our Topic this term is ‘Romans on the Rampage.’ The class have been busy learning about who exactly the Romans were and what they have done for us. For DT, each of the students were tasked with creating a Roman helmet using paper mache, balloons, cardboard and, of course, the red and gold paint! This was a great success, with all students now learning Latin salutes in anticipation of a Roman Legion army drill in the coming weeks. ‘Dextrum sinistrum!

Finally, the good weather so far was not wasted, with many of our Guided Reading sessions taking place outside in the Gazebo and our first session of Tag Rugby taking place in glorious sunshine.

Sports Day 2020

2020 brought around a slightly different kind of sports day. Over 100 of our pupils took part in first ever Rainbow games, both at home and in school.

The day consisted of children competing in for their houses in a range of throwing, jumping and running activities alongside some cross-curricular olympic themed activities such as designing/cooking a healthy meal; researching one of the continents; creating banner and posters to show their support for their house.

A brilliant event with many children engaging in the activities. Over 18000 points were shared between the 4 houses with less than 100 separating first and second.

Results are announced in the below video!
