“I liked going on our school trip to the museum. I liked seeing all the different dresses.” - Holly
To see the planning for this year group, please look at ‘curriculum’ in the information pages of this site.
It was a fabulous day and we enjoyed seeing these incredible animals.
Thank you to everyone who helped us on our trip.
On World Book Day last week, Hedgehog class wrote a story about being magically swept into Fairy-tale land, where everyone had a different adventure before being freed to return back to class.
We also designed book-tokens for a national competition to design a book-token.
The children enjoyed playing a game of "Fairy-tale Head-bands", where they had to guess which character they were from a story.
There was a good variety of costumes, and the class voted on which costume they thought was best. They chose Sam and Scarlett.
To finish our first half term’s work on Fairy Tales, Year 2 held a dressing up day. The children (and staff) chose a fairy tale character and came to school dressed as that character.
There was a wolf, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Puss in Boots, Cinderella, Jack, Goldilocks and even a troll!
In the afternoon, the children used the “story strings” that they had created during the week to tell a fairy tale to someone from a different class.
The focus for the second half of the term will be on the children writing their own version of a fairy tale.
We look forward to sharing them with you.
Thank you to everyone who came to this week's parents meeting about the KS1 tests in May. We hope that you found it useful.

On Wednesday 25th January 2017, Year 2 children were treated to a drama performance of “The Greatest Fairy Tale Ever Told.”
Having spent the first few weeks reading a range of Fairy Tales in class, the Hobgoblin Theatre Company mixed all the tales up in one story!
There is trouble in Fairy Tale Land... The Evil Queen is doing away with all of the handsome Princes and it is up to the 3 Little Pigs to stop her!
There was Snow White……
Jack and his Mum….….
and Prince Charming trying to find the owner of the “glass slipper”!
After the show, the actors led a drama workshop, teaching us how to use our faces and bodies to create “creepy trees”, “frogs” and “flowers”.
A fun morning was had by us all!
