A busy week to come....

As you probably are all aware, we will be celebrating World Week in school next week. There will be lots of fun activities based around Maths, English, Science and RE culminating in Year 2's class assembly on Friday. We hope to see as many of you there as possible.

I will be sending out any lines that the children need to practise at home on Monday. On the homework sheet, I have given details of costumes that we will be needing. If any of the children have animal onesies that they would be willing to let us borrow, could these be brought in no later than Tuesday. We will also be needing some coloured t-shirts in the following colours:

  • blue
  • green
  • brown
  • red
  • orange
  • yellow
  • white
  • pink
If you have any that you would be willing to let us borrow, please ensure they are clearly labelled with your child's name before sending them in.

We are also looking for some flags for some of the different countries that our families are from. If you have one that you could lend us, I will ensure it is returned to you after the assembly. 

Thankyou and we look forward to seeing you all on Friday!

Year 2's trip to Waitrose

We have had a really busy and fun week this week. On Wednesday, Mrs Stocks took the class to Waitrose as part of our 'Healthy Humans' topic in Science. We had a tour of the store and then visited the really cold freezer. The lady that showed us around was called Sarah and she told use we might find a polar bear because it was so cold!

We had the chance to try different fruit juices and some unusual fruits including something called a kiwiberry and some pomegranate seeds. We also sampled some olive bread which was delicious.

We learnt all about eating a healthy diet and which foods we should eat more of and which we should have less of. We learnt about the importance of exercise and why it is really good for our bodies.

Here are some photos from our trip!

Finally, just a couple of reminders. Our class assembly is on the 16th of October. Hopefully we will see lots of you there! Also, as the weather becomes colder over the next few weeks it is important that your child has warm clothes to put over the top of their PE kit when we have outdoor PE. Please could you also try to send your child in with trainers for outdoor PE as plimsolls are not suitable for running around in when the ground is wet and slippery.

Have a lovely weekend!
