There is definitely a feel of Christmas in the air. After the success of last week’s fayre, the frosty winter mornings and Christmas trees all around the school, the children are ready for the Christmas festivities to begin!
However, they have had to work hard in all of their lessons. In ICT, they have been learning about spreadsheets where they were using the total button to add up costs of data. In English, they have written some outstanding letters to a child who spotted a polar bear on the pirate ship! After reading the book ‘Dear Greenpeace’, the children were able to give advice and information to help the child look after the polar bear! Some children used talking-tins to help them with their writing.
Thursday was sadly the last of our PE sessions with Emily and her team. The children had a fun time being Christmas trees and fruit! You will need to talk to the children about those!
The children have worked exceptionally hard this week with preparations for their ‘Christmas Around the World performance’. A big shout-out to all the year 2 parents, who supplied some amazing costumes –the children looked fantastic! The children shared their performances with the rest of the school, so that they were in tip-top form to perform to the parents on Friday 9th December. The Year 2 staff are so very, very proud of all the children. Fantastic performance!
