Sports Week

What a busy week it has been! 

 

On Monday we had a visit from Jamie Knight a football freestyler. He shared his skills with us during an assembly and even taught us some of the football skills. Jamie told us about his journey to success. Many of us came away very inspired!

On Tuesday we took part in a Archery workshop. Not many of us had taken part in Archery activities before so it was great fun!

On Wednesday the Year 5 play leaders ran a fitness workshop for us. It was great to see the Year 5 children taking responsibility and setting up some fantastic activities.

On Thursday we took part in a fitness workshop with A-Life. We learnt about the importance of staying fit and healthy.

On Friday we took part in a tennis lesson. It was great to try out a different sport. 

We even took part in the 'daily mile'. Next Year all classes will be completing this every day. 

 

 

Please remember a hat, water bottle and sun-cream for next week. It is meant to be VERY hot! 

This week was a very busy week in Year Two. Take a look at all the fantastic learning we have been doing!

Seaside Trip

Although we were nearly blown over on the beach today - Year Two had a fantastic time in Southend.

 

In the morning we got to paddle in the sea and play on the beach. As it started to rain we had to go inside (it was so windy all our socks were flying around!

Then we got to explore the Sealife Aquarium - there were so many animals we had never seen before. 

After this we got to touch a star fish. We had to use our little finger otherwise it would get too hot! Did you know a star fish has two stomachs? 

Finally we got to eat our lunch and have a well-deserved ice-cream. 

On the way to the coach the sun decided to come out so we got to play on the beach.

Global Diversity Week

The children had a fantastic time learning about South Korea. Mr Regan shared all his knowledge of the country. We created leaflets about the UK so we can send them to a school in South Korea (hopefully they write back to us). We made traditional masks, learnt the dance to 'Gangnam Style', learnt to write our name in Korean, tasted lots of different foods and we even made our own sushi!  Mr Regan also taught us how to say phrases such as "good morning" in Korean.

 

Take a look at our pictures below. 

 

On Friday the children will be bringing home their arts and crafts from this week. If you would like to make a donation to the chosen charity then a pot will be put out the front of the classroom.

Handwriting at home

 

On Friday the children will be coming home with a purple handwriting book. The book contains some of the high frequency and common exception words for Year Two.  The handwriting book helps them with their letter sizing and consistency. Each week the children will practise the spellings twice before brining them home.

 

Please finish the line of spellings, using the lines as a measure and my example to help. Please return the book by Thursday for some new words.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Enterprise Activity

 

In Year Two we decided we were going to make milkshakes as part of our enterprise activity. We made chocolate, caramel, banana, strawberry and oreo milkshakes. We knew we had to make over £30 in order to make a profit.

 

They looked and tasted delicious!

P.S.H.E week.

What a busy week we have had!

We started off the week with an eco-workshop. We learnt about the importance of recycling and the impact we are having on our planet.

Next, we had a visit from the Firefighters where we learnt about the importance of having a fire alarm in your home. The Police also came to talk to us to tell us about their job and how they keep us safe.

Mrs Sharp told us all about the New Hope charity and how we can support people that are homeless.

We also took part in a healthy eating workshop. We completed lots of different activities such as; brushing teeth, building the human body out of puzzle pieces, sorting out foods for the Eat Well plate and learning how much salt and sugar is in our food!

As a class, we discussed the topic 'our happy place'. We used foam to create a picture of our happy place. In circle time we spoke about how different colours can represent different emotions. 

 

Take a look at all our photos!
