Year 2 had a great evening at camp night! 

We were very excited to wave Miss Coulthard and her future husband Richard off today before their wedding. We are looking forward to hearing all about her special day when she returns. 

We have been learning about tigers. Last week we learned lots of facts about tigers. This week we have been exploring the poem 'The Tyger' by William Blake. We discussed some of the tricky language. We did some drawings inspired by his words. The children have also enjoyed some tiger themed art, making clay tigers and tiger face plates. 

This week we have been learning to measure in cm and metres. We learned that we had to be careful to start at the 0 so that we got the correct measurement. We also compared how tall we are now to how tall we were in November. Some children have grown 5cm! 

The Easter Story 


Just a quick reminder that all work will be posted on google classroom and PurpleMash. Please check for activities to do while you are at home. On Friday we hope to do a short online session for all children in the Owls class, the link will only be available on google classroom so that the session remains secure. The link will be posted on Friday morning so please check for that if you wish to join us. You will need a piece of paper and a pencil! 

Spring term activities

 We have been learning about the animals of the Rainforest. We learnt about their habitat, how they adjust to their environment and about their diet. We made posters of our animals.

Rainforest Art

 We enjoyed looking at pictures of animals in the rainforest. We used pastels to draw the animals.



With Advent beginning this Sunday, we have been learning about the Advent Wreath.

Please watch the video of Father Dan telling the Christmas Story and listen to the song on the youTube link to help you think about Advent and the meaning of Christmas.

Harvest Festival

Hello everyone,

Thank you so much for all the kind harvest donations.

As we are not able to have a Harvest assembly this year we thought we would perform a poem for you.

The poem is called Whisky Frisky and is about a squirrel.

We wrote our own poems and Harvest prayers.
