Year 2 have had a smashing first week back to school after the holidays, and I’ve loved hearing from them about their fun activities during the week off school! We’ve been busy as ever this week, learning to tell the time and starting to write our own retelling of ‘Charlotte’s Web’ to showcase everything they’ve learnt about writing this year. Some of the children chose to change the characters and how the main character is saved - I can’t wait to read these very individual stories!
We were delighted to rehearse some more of Fantastic Mr Fox with Lydia, and to make the most of the sun by doing a series of multi-skills challenges on the field in PE. There was some lovely teamwork happening and it felt almost like a mini sports day.
Finally we began learning about sacred places in RE. The children thought deeply about what would be their ideal “special place” and then designed this behind a lift the flap door. We hope to take a trip to the church in the coming weeks, to discover more about what make it such a special place for Christians.
Best wishes for a happy and safe weekend!
