Your teachers in Class 2A have been extremely busy over the holidays immersing your classroom so that it is an engaging and fun place to learn.

We had so much fun today! We enjoyed our ice creams, trying to surf and riding the donkeys!
On Monday, Year 2 were lucky enough to go to Haigh Hall on our class trip. The weather was perfect! We walked through the plantations and saw the pigs, there was even a cute piglet. They were really smelly and loved playing in the mud.
After that, we ate our dinner on the field, then we got to play on the park! There were lots of other children there too, so it was very busy. We enjoyed the swings, the fast slides and the climbing frames! Hopefully, we'll be able to again next year.
On Monday 5th of June, we returned from half term to a really nice treat! We had a great introduction to big read week. The book we are focusing on is Enid Blyton's The Enchanted Wood and the Far Away Tree!
We had lots of children dress up as witches and wizards and we enjoyed watching Magic Philip! He demonstrated lots of magic tricks and he even told how some of them were done. The children loved joining and being Magic Philip's assistant!!
2a won attendance of the week at last!!!
Thank you for getting us all to school on time because we really enjoyed our reward of the giant inflatable!
After returning from a nice, long Easter break, 2a were introduced to their new book that they will be writing about in English. The book was Hermelin the Detective Mouse and we went on a hunt around he play ground to look for clues about the story. We managed to work together to find all of the clues.
World Poetry Day - Aliens from Planet Trouble!

World Book Day
Dinosaur Day! Y2a made a great effort with dressing up today!
The children all got to meet and stroke Rexi, but were careful he didn't bite their fingers off!
We learned that Rexi was only 1yr old and that we he is fully grown he could be as tall as a double decker bus!!!
The children enjoyed this great experience! Rexi made us all laugh and some of us cry!
2a had a fantastic day out at Martin Mere! We travelled on a double decker bus, which was exciting.
When we arrived, we saw 3 otters playing with each other in their habitat. They were really playful, but we learned that they have sharp claws and webbed feet!
We talked about how bats hear where their prey is and how they catch it effectively. We learned this by playing a fun game of Bat and Moth!
Later, we walked around Martin Mere, where we saw lots of different types of ducks, geese and birds! We were even lucky enough to see flamingoes and black swans.
We finished the day on the massive play area and although it was cold, we had lots of fun!
Our day out tired us out, and a few of us fell fast asleep on the way home!!! Zzzzzzzz!
As a WOW launch to E Safety day we wanted to do something memorable for the children around keeping children safe on the Internet. With the help of One Day Creative, all the children in the school got to take part in a fun creative workshop and learn all about E Safety through Drama.
Reception to Y3 took part in the “Into the Screen Workshop” The children used well-known fairy tale characters to highlight the importance of keeping safe online, they worked in groups to navigate their way out of some tricky situations. Will the 3 Little Pigs tell the Big Bad Wolf where they live? Will Red Riding Hood notice that Granny looks a bit different today? And will anyone be able to stop the Ugly Sisters from being horrible to Cinderella? Through playful and fun storytelling, pupils learnt how to keep safe when playing on the internet and realise that the world inside the screen is perhaps not so different from the real world after all.
As part of Science we worked with School of Military to help us learn how to look after ourselves. We talked about the food pyramid, a balanced diet and how exercise contributes to a healthy person. The children looked at their heart rates before and after exercise to see how it had changed. Matt encouraged the children to be the best that they can be!
Hola! Today we enjoyed taking part in lots of different tasks for Spanish Day. We read Los Tres Cerditos (three little pigs), tried some delicious tapas food, enjoyed listening and dancing to Spanish music.
Making Christmas cards!
Children made homes for our topic, What makes a house a home?

This week has been our Eco Week . We have been looking at ways to care for our environment
|We discussed how to stay safe around waterways.|
We planted up tubs and hanging baskets with flowers and cared for our vegetables. We are growing brussels sprouts, lettuce and broad beans. They are growing really well.
|We investigated how long it takes for different items to decay in landfill sites.|
|We had an unplugged morning -A morning without electricity. We used the time to problem solve as a team.|
We reused plastic milk bottles to create our own hanging baskets. We planted them with strawberries, herbs and tomato plants.
Our trip to Martin Mere
|We went to see the Whopper swans and we looked through the binoculars to see them closer. It was great fun.
We had to fill a sheet in about them.
|We went into a tent and played bat and moth and someone had to be a bat and someone had to be a moth. Then the bat had to try to get the moth but the bat and the moth had to close their eyes.|
|We all went to see the Otters. The Otters were playing, swimming and chasing each other it looked funny. We saw their homes and they had little oval doors. There was half of land and half of water there was some stones and sand on the land.|
