Year 2 have been very lucky this week as we have been visited all the way from India by Sunita Patel who has given the children an insight to Indian culture and religion, worked with them to create colourful Rangoli patterns and taught them some Bollywood dancing. Children and adults have had a fantastic time, please ask your children to tell you all about our Indian experience and what they have learnt.
Check out our Bollywood dance moves!

Entry Point: Hooray... Let's go on holiday!
Year 2 have started their new topic this morning. The children have turned their classrooms into travel agents and have gained an insight into how to book a holiday. The children looked at variety of different holiday types and destinations; they worked collaboratively to complete a booking form for a holiday of their choice.
Year 2 have been comparing the original 'Three Little Pigs' text to a version called 'The True Story' which is told from the point of view of the wolf. We then discussed whether we thought the wolf was innocent or guilty. We explored these arguments through a technique called 'Conscience Alley'.
Year 2 had a special visitor, all the way from Ohio in America. Neil Armstrong came to tell us all about his adventures in space!
We learnt how to do the moon walk!

Wear Red Day Friday 2nd February We are supporting Wear Red Day for the charity Keeping the Beat. We all came to school wearing red. Keeping the Beat is a charity which helps children and their families who need special care to look after their hearts.
Instructions for our jigsaw puzzles. Using numbers to order them and bossy verbs to make them clear, we have written instructions on how to solve our jigsaw puzzles. After writing the instructions we followed each other's instructions and solved the puzzles we had made.
We are going to be writing some instructions for solving jigsaw puzzles. We have learnt that puzzles are good for exercising our brains. Look out for examples of our super writing next week.
Children came to school dressed as scientists and enjoyed solving puzzles in Professor Spark's Laboratory. It was a super way to begin our new topic and the children were extremely enthusiastic and creative!
Year 2 are loving their new homework project linked to their topic 'Brainwaves'. They look fantastic! Many thanks to our very creative parents for helping their child!
Year 2 Christingle Celebration
Year 1 and 2 held a Christingle making workshop with parents. Christingles are made from an orange decorated with red tape, sweets and a candle.Each piece of the Christingle holds special symbolism to help children understand the importance of Jesus and its relevance at Christmas time.
The orange represents the world
The red ribbon (or tape) symbolises the love and blood of Christ
The sweets and dried fruit represent all of God’s creations
The lit candle represents Jesus’s light in the world, bringing hope to people living in darkness
Afterwards we held a traditional Christingle parade on the school playground with children, parents and grandparents whilst singing Christmas carols.
