Half term homework

We have had an incredibly busy half term and the children have really impressed me! Thank you to all the parents that came to parents evening this week. When we return to school, we will begin learning our Nativity. The children have been told today which part they will be playing and lines will be sent home after the holiday.

For homework, I would like the class to do some research based around our history topic that we will be learning about when we come back to school. We will be studying ways of communicating and comparing how we communicate today with how we communicated in the past, particularly during WW1.

I would like the children to find out about three different ways of communicating in modern times and then three ways from the past. They could choose to either present their findings as a poster or information booklet or even a power point presentation. Please also make sure your child does lots of reading over the holiday.

Have a lovely week!

Last week, Year 2 headed off for an adventure in the woods at Ashridge estate. We had a fantastic day searching for bugs on the forest floor, building dens and creating Andy Goldsworthy inspired land art. Thank you again to the parents who came and supported us on the trip. The children learned a lot about habitats and have enjoyed writing about our trip in school.

Here are a few photos form the day...
