 CHANGES TO THE MORNING ROUTINE

After our half term holiday, the whole school will be trialling opening the cloakroom doors at 8.45AM. The children will be able to walk in as they arrive with no need to line up outside. Our aim as a school is that by increasing the window to arrive at school, we will reduce parking congestion and also cloakroom traffic, making mornings run more smoothly for children and parents. The class teachers will be inside the classroom waiting to greet the children. Please be aware that parents will be requested to remain outside as the children will need to remain independent. If any parent/carer should have a message to pass on to a teacher, this can be done via email. Class teachers will be outside as usual at the end of the school day.

SCIENCE WEEK

morleya on: YEAR 2 BLOG

What a brilliant time we all had during Science week. We had a visit in assembly from a Civil Engineer telling us all about her job and what it entails. Later in the week all class then got to go into an inflatable science dome which taught use about the space and the solar system. It was amazing as it was virtual and it felt like we were really in space.

Remember you have another few days to complete your STEM project homework for the whole school exhibition next week.

WORLD DOWN SYNDROME DAY

morleya on: YEAR 2 BLOG

     

We all came in odd socks to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day. We read a book in class which was written by a teenage girl who's sister had down syndrome. It was explaining how it took her long to learn things and how she used makaton to communicate. But it also said how she enjoyed doing lots of things we like to do like go on holiday, go to the park, swimming and many more things. In class we learn the chorus to the song 'Love My Life' using makaton.

BOOK DAY

morleya on: YEAR 2 BLOG

Wow the children made a fantastic effort on World Book Day dressing up as different book characters. In class they wrote about who they had come dressed as, describing what their character looked like and what their personality was like. We then listened to one of Mrs Holdsworth's favourite stories called ' The Day the Crayons Quit'. We wrote a poem based on the book about colours and even did a whole class mural using lots of different colour crayons.

KIDNAPPED

morleya on: YEAR 2 BLOG

HELP! Sunny the meerkat has been kidnapped by the jackal. We came into class on Friday and the classroom had been turned into a crime scene. A ransom note had been left by the jackal saying he had taken Sunny as he loves to eat meerkat. However, he said he would bring him back in exchange for haribo sweets. We made some missing posters to put up around school and at home. If you see Sunny please call school. Fingers crossed he is returned to us soon, as we left lots of haribo sweets in the classroom ( hidden in traps we had made to try and catch the jackal).

NEW VISITOR

morleya on: YEAR 2 BLOG

We were all so excited when we got a phone call from the office to say a parcel had arrived for us.   It was Sunny the Meerkat. He had come to visit our school as he knew we were learning about animals around the world. He has been on a holiday and visited different places. One place he hadn’t visited was England so he came to see how it is different from Africa, where he lives.
