Autumn Term 2


Welcome back after the half term break. We hope you had a lovely rest and enjoyed lots of Halloween and Bonfire night fun! We have a busy half term lined up with a new topic titled 'Toys and Games'. We will also be busy rehearsing for our Christmas play 'Gnome Alone'. 

We now have our new Peer Mentors for this half term who are fantastic role models to the rest of the class. A big well done to Bethannie, Lily C, Imogen, Henry, Lily G, Grace D and Alex who are proudly wearing their new badges!

Other changes that you may notice is that we have new learning partners and may be reading on different days with either Mrs Hardy, Mrs Benson or Mrs Johnson.

Our new topic is......Totally Terrific Toys.

We had lots of fun playing with different types of toys and games for an afternoon to launch our new topic. Afterwards we thought of questions that we would like to find out the answer to as we learn more about toys.

Abbey House Museum Trip

We had a wonderful visit to Leeds to learn more about toys from the past. We explored the toys exhibition and played with the different toys on display. The highlight of the trip was the workshop where we found out about children's bedrooms in Victorian times and the toys they had. We were surprised to find out that the children didn't have many toys to play with and that most were made out of wood and were hand made. We also found out about the Christmas presents Victorian children might have received, if they had been well behaved. Take a look at some of out photographs to see what fun we had!

Andy from York City came in to talk to us about eating healthy, getting plenty of sleep and exercise. We even got a pedometer which we had lots of fun with!

Our Special Toys

We all brought in a special toy to share with the class. We explained why they were special and answered questions about them.

Signs of Autumn Scavenger Hunt

After learning about all the Seasons, we wrapped up warm and put on our wellies to go on an Autumn walk around school. We collected lots of Autumnal objects to add to our class 'Autumn Discovery Jar'. What do you think we found?
Inspired by our Autumn walk, we used Autumnal colours to recreated trees. Which ones do you like best? Can you work out how we made them?

Autumn Term 1


A big congratulations goes out to Niamh, Jess, Thomas, Eva, Sienna, Luna, Grace Ca, Jack, Harvey and Shay for being our first set of peer mentors. They have already demonstrated fantastic behaviour and are rising to the challenge of setting an excellent example to the rest of the school. Keep it up!

Perfect Place Value. Mrs Benson and Mrs Johnson's maths group have been working hard understanding place value. The year 2's have become experts at representing numbers using tens and ones. Keep up the good work everyone!

Materials materials everywhere. In science we have been learning all about the types of materials around us. We labelled the materials we see in the classroom and became material detectives in the school garden.



We have made a fantastic start to our superhero topic. Have a look at the photos to see some of the things we have been up to.

Drama workshop

We were very lucky to have a drama workshop this week. The children had a taster into what drama is and had a go at a lot of different fun activities.
