Over the next two weeks we will be achieving these objectives.
We will be making our own E-Safety posters, discussing how we use technology safely in and outside of school. We will then move on to capturing and taking our own photographs.

What an amazing week we have had in Year Two. We had a wonderful trip to Windsor Castle, we watched Changing the Windsor Castle Guard, had a great workshop with Martin and we went in the State Apartments. We had an amazing day.
Our week in pictures. 23rd September 2019
What an amazing week we have had in Year Two. We made three ladders to help our shy dragon climb down from our writing shed.
We have also been using water colours to paint our own harvest pictures. We finished the week by reading out some prayers in church.
We are once again running our popular Eisteddfod performance poetry competition across the Multi Academy Trust this year.
The children can learn a poem of their choice (and can even write their own poem if they wish)
Find below some example poems to give you an idea of appropriate level for your child's year group. Please note that whilst you may use these poems, there is no expectation to and we love to see variety and children's own choices.
Performances will be judged on how well the poem has been learnt, clarity, expression and actions used to enhance the performance.
The first round of class auditions will be on Friday 22nd November, followed by the semi finals on Friday 24th January and then the finals on Thursday 5th March - we can’t wait to hear the children’s performances!
Please do ask if you have any questions regarding the Eisteddfod. Thank you.
This page will be updated weekly to keep you informed about our learning. Homework and spellings can also be found here.
If you have any questions please speak to Miss Dance on the playground at the end of the day, or write a message for Miss Dance in your child's partnership diary.
A reminder to read 4 times per week for 10 weeks and you can earn a certificate . (Parents please remember to sign the partnership book).
Please note we will be using the outdoor areas regularly this year to enhance our learning. Please can you send old shoes or wellies in with your children along with a suitable coat. This way regardless of the weather we can all get outside.
