Poppy and Buttercups class took part in our very own Sing Up Assembly this morning, lead by Mrs Baker. It was fantastic fun to sing songs and it really brightened our morning- some of us even got to play instruments!
We were lucky enough to meet Dan and his Guide Dog Midge. He answered any questions we had and taught us how his best friend Midge helps him get around. It made us realise how lucky we all are- and how amazing animals are that they can be someone’s eyes!
Year 2 enjoyed a trip to the canal yesterday, learning all about locks, how they work and even getting to open them for some passing canal boats. The children learnt how to be safe around canals and to always Stay Away From Edges!
Did you know people used to decorate their canal boats to make them look more homely? We have been busy designing our own Watering Cans based on the designs seen on Canal Boats all over Britain…do you like them?
On Friday 25th May, our class dressed as pirates to celebrate the end of our theme. It was also a day to celebrate the end of our SATS and the fact that we worked incredibly hard during this exhausting week. We played Pirate Top Trumps, ate piratey snacks (even braving trying Twiglets!) and watched a…
On Wednesday 9th May, Year 2 walked to King’s Community Church and to Christ Church. We looked at and compared the two churches and explored the key parts of a C of E Church. This will help us with our RE as we are learning about different places of worship.
Buttercups have been lucky enough to have our Forest School this half term. Every Thursday, we have wrapped up warm (braving the elements and the seemingly never-ending winter) and enjoyed time building bug hotels or building impressive dens. We love the chance to be outside and really use our imagination and collaboration skills.
On Tuesday 20th March, Buttercups (and some VERY excited adults) visited Cadbury World to end out topic for the term. We got to explore the history of the factory, go on a Cocoa Bean Ride and pick our own toppings for chocolate. Our favourite part was the 4D cinema- although Mrs Taylor had to cover…
Buttercups had a fantastic reading session with our Year 6 buddies! We looked at how to answer a VIPERS comprehension based on Cocoa Beans which links to our theme. We have so much fun working with the older children- thanks so much Year 6.
Buttercups had an amazing time on World Book Day- we had Gangsta Grannies, Fantastic Mr Fox and even Mary Poppins turned up to say hello! We ended the day with hot chocolate and our favourite books before Mrs Taylor read us ‘Oi Goat!’ WE LOVE BOOKS in our class, what are your favourite reads?
