The children all looked fantastic today as they came to school wearing red for our Red Nose Day appeal. Thank you to all grown ups who made a donation towards such a worthy cause.
As part of their World Book Day activities, each class wrote and performed a rhyme with Miss McBarron. You can watch the spectacular performances by clicking the links below.
Last week, the children were set the homework task of writing down all that they had learnt about Nelson Mandela over the past 2 weeks. The teachers were blown away by how fantastic the results were and by how much time, effort and creativity had been spent on creating the beautiful posters. Below are a few examples of the tremendous work.
On Tuesday 12th March, Sycamore and Daffodil Class had an exciting trip to Woburn Safari Park where they came face to face with lots of magnificent wild animals. How exciting it was! As well as driving around the Park, the children got to take a walking safari where they saw red pandas, tortoises, penguins, goats and some very cheeky lemur. After that they had a very informative workshop all about animal habitats and then ate their scrumptious lunch. At the end of the day, both classes got to run wild in the Play Ark. What a wonderful day it was!

In Sycamore Classroom, the children shared the story ‘Enormous Elephant’ by Mwenye Hadithi and Adrienne Kennaway. This book is an ethnic folk-tale about the days before the Big Rains and how the animals looked very different. It explains how the elephant got to wave his long trunk and swish its long tail. After hearing the story, the children went away and designed brand new animals!
The children had a fantastic time celebrating World Book Day this week and got to share 4 spectacular stories with 4 of the Year 2 teacher. In Puffin Class, Miss Cumiskey read the children the story of Handa’s Surprise. The children then got to sample some of the fruits that Handa collected on her journey…Yum!
