Maths 'n' Munch
Thank you to all the parents who attended our Maths 'n' Munch session this week. I hope you found it useful to find out about how we teach maths in Year 2 and some of the strategies your children are mastering. Thank you for all for the positive feedback and I'm glad that you all enjoyed being given the opportunity to work alongside your child at school.

CHILDREN IN NEED
Friday 15th November 2019
We like to help others and take part in fund raising campaigns at our school so today we all wore our own clothes to help raise money for Pudsey Bear and Children in Need. We all brought in a donation and raised lots of money for the charity. We also looked at some of the ways Children in Need spend the money collected and found out that it helps lots of children to access sport, take breaks, be part of art and music groups as well as provide care for children and families who need help. We really enjoyed making out Pudsey masks and posters!
Look at our beautiful poems that we have created about the colour Red.
Red is the colour of poppies. Red is remembering.
Local History Week
4th November 2019 - 8th November 2019
This week the whole school has been studying an aspect of local history and finding out about the past. In Year 2 we investigated the question - Is our school old or new? The children had lots of ideas and initial thoughts and we had to think carefully about actually how old is old? I asked the children if they thought I was old, we had some very funny answers! After our class discussions we all became historical detectives and went on a hunt around the school to find evidence of old or new. We looked at old class photographs of children who had come to the school before us and even found a photograph from 1907. They didn't have a school uniform then! Finally as our last task we interviewed a member of staff who was a former pupil. Mrs Blackford started school in 1976 and she brought with her lots of items she had saved from her school days. We looked at some school photographs (we tried to guess which one was Mrs Blackford), reports, music awards and certificates, trip write ups and two old whole school register logs. Mrs Blackford told us that the school was very different when she was here. After all our investigating we decided that our school was both old and new!
