Week 30th November - 4th December 2020
What an exciting week the children have had  this week! Our book fair arrived on Monday with a selection of books to share with each class. Today your child has come home with a leaflet outlining the books - some of which they would have had a sample read from. 
On Tuesday Peachy the elf brought us a class elf (named Pom Pom by the children) who is helping us prepare for Christmas. He has already helped select a few books for us and tried to tidy up the classroom. He also brought a balloon for the room.
On Thursday the children made paper chains which complemented the maths work on patterns and on Friday we had a special Christmas writing day.
Week 7th-11th December 2020
The children are really enjoying their Advent unit of learning and have been busy thinking of ways to prepare their hearts. Many have taken on the daily Advent challenges set by Mrs Fearn: thank you to those who are supporting their children to do this.
In the classroom the children have been preparing with Christmas decorations, which they will be coming home with today.
Week 14th-18th December 2020
Your children have had an exciting week with many different Christmas activities. They have continued to learn about the journey that Mary and Joseph took and have thought carefully about encouraging messages they would have given to them. I hope that you enjoyed the short video posted on Google Classroom with messages and prayers.
On Wednesday the children made party hats for their Christmas lunch and looked great in their Christmas jumpers. On Thursday we had music, games and "Year 2 has got talent".  Your children have been really super this term and we hope that you all have a very happy Christmas
