Books for classrooms fundraising event!
A great big thank you to all parents, family and friends who have supported our fundraising event to buy books for classrooms. Before half term the children looked on The Book People website and together we all chose the books that we wanted for our classroom.
My little pony, David Walliams collection, A Diary Of A Wimpy Kid collection and a lovely collection of fairy tales where a few of the popular fiction book chosen. We also bought some great non-fiction books including an I-Spy series, Science crackers and a series about different life cycles. We bought lots of different ability books for different reading levels and interests.
The children have loved reading all of our new books and have taken pride in the them.
Here are some photos for you to see us enjoying our wonderful books.
Thank you for your support and generosity.
We have kick started our morning with a fun activity to introduce our new topic...
A Pirate's Life for Me!
We have started to make a treasure map where X marks the spot!
Well done to all of our fabulous year 2's this week in completing their Key Stage 1 SATs. You all came in beautifully every morning ready to work hard and you were all very sensible.
We hope you all had a lovely Easter Break and are ready to start learning.
World Book Day 2017
We all looked fabulous dressed as our favourite book character.
Our day was based around our favourite books doing lots of fun activities. We wrote a book review, read lots of stories and had a great assembly where we had a little book quiz.
Having fun experimenting with measuring in meters.
We got into partners and had a go at throwing a bean bag as far as we could across the playground. We then had to estimate how far we had thrown our beanbag in meters. After we had written down our estimation we got the meter sticks and measured how far we had thrown it.
Wren Class have achieved their class treat as they haven collected all of their class points. On Wednesday 1st February Wren class are having a pyjama and movie afternoon. Please send your children with a set of pyjamas to get changed into after lunch. We will provide them with sweets and popcorn for an extra treat.
