Dragon's egg! We were surprised to learn about a dragon's egg that was left in our field yesterday. We wrote some amazing stories about it and are really pleased that it turned out to be a friendly dragon. The dragons have gone now but we enjoyed thinking about them.

Castle Day - Thank you to everyone for making such a great effort on Castle Day last week - we hope they children enjoyed taking part in lots of activities including having a Medieval banquet! 

English - We are now looking at Conquer the Monster stories in English, and have been learning the story Peter and the Dragon. Here is the story-map - I wonder if you can remember the first paragraph to read aloud at home? 

P4C - We have been trying to decide what makes a dragon, a dragon! It was trickier than we thought. We tried to think of words that we could use to describe it such as 'fierce' 'has wings' 'breathes fire' 'is big' and 'has a tail'. It was tricky because not all dragons are big (what about babies?!) and not all dragons breathe fire (what about water dragons?!). However, we realised that if we just used descriptions like 'is fierce' 'has a tail' and 'has scales' then we could be talking about other creatures - such as a crocodile! Here are the notes from our discussion. I wonder if you can think of the best 3 words to describe a dragon?

Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed your week off.

Our new learning is all about Towers, Tunnels and Turrets. We have our CASTLE DAY on Wednesday this week. Letters were sent out about this, but children are invited to dress up if they wish to (Knight / Prince / Princess / Queen / King / Dragon) to enjoy a fun-filled day at school. Children don't need to bring anything else in. They will all have the opportunity to make a crown to wear if they are unable to dress up. We will also be having a Medieval Banquet where children are encouraged to try some of the foods they used to eat. If you have any concerns about this, please speak to your child's teacher before Wednesday.

DT - Fruit jelly - We are researching, designing, making and evaluating a fruit jelly this week. Letters have been sent home regarding this. Please return the form to us by Tuesday to let us know if your child cannot eat any of the fruit and/or jelly. 

Art - local artist workshop - We are so excited that we have a local artist coming in to lead workshops this week! She will be sharing her own art work, giving the children top tips, and leading a water-colour mixing session with the children. Letters have been sent home about this.  

Poetry Boxes - On Friday last week, our class Poetry Boxes went home for the first time! We hope the selected children are enjoying them so far. We cannot wait to see the art work you produce! Don't worry - everyone will get a chance to take the box home throughout the year.

Messy Day!

We had a brilliant day today! The children had such fun exploring a range of materials with their hands (and feet!) and were also brilliant at following instructions when it was time to tidy away. It's a good job we came in our old clothes!

02.09.22

Thank you to our amazing artists in Year 2! Your homework was absolutely brilliant and we loved sharing it in class. Here is some of the artwork that the children said we could keep for a while to display. We wanted to keep it all because it was all wonderful, but understand that some children wanted to keep their masterpiece at home. Well done!

01.09.22

We have enjoyed welcoming the children into Year 2 so far this week. They have all been great! 

Messy Day - Tuesday 6th September. Please send your child to school wearing old clothes, as they will be getting messy! It would be great if they also brought another set of old clothes with them. If you have any questions or concerns about this day, please email us or talk to your child's teacher.
