Week 24th-28th May 2021
We have come to the end of the half term and the children have shown resilience, creativity and kindness throughout. We have said goodbye to Reggie as she is moving location and welcomed Ed as he has also moved house. 
During the week the children have enjoyed making fossils, having an outdoor liturgy with a focus on Mary and planting flowers to sell after half term.
We hope that you have a lovely family half term with sunshine and rest! Thank you for your support as always.
After half term we are looking forward to swimming in our school pool. Please can you encourage your child to spend some time practising putting their swim hat on, drying themselves independently and putting on/ removing their costumes. 
Thank you
Week 17th-21st May 2021
Year 2 have been learning about food chains in science and have been writing recipes for dinosaurs - they really enjoyed this. Have a look at a few!
Week 10th-14th May 2021
Dear parents
Please take a look at the wonderful watercolour paintings that year 2 made this week and photos of the drama/dance that took place (to express Pentecost).
Thank you to those who are listening to your child read regularly; I can see big improvements being made. Please, if you have not listened to your child read recently, try and find time to do so. It does make such a difference to their success at school and to their enjoyment of reading. I am more than happy to talk to any parent who is having difficulties with this. Thank you for your continued support.
Week 4th-7th May 2021
Your children have been busy exploring the school grounds for different creatures. They used the magnifying glasses to look closely at the bodies; counting legs, antenna etc.
They then did a little research and sketched their findings.
